ISO Record Rendesvous

I'm trying to set up a Rendezvous session, and record ISOs of each person joining the call. Is this possible in WireCast? I'm currently on a trial, so I can't test as ISO is only accessible with a license. If this is possible, are there any processing requirements to record 4-5 ISOs (one local plugged in camera, and 4 remote Rendezvous participants)?

  • Its funny you mention that. I was testing ISO only recently with Rendezvous. No, it is not possible to record individual Rendezvous guests currently.

    I don't doubt there'd be some interest in this.

  • Can pro res even record at that low of a raw resolution?

  • CraigS Will do. Unfortunately the need is imminent, so will look to another solution, but hopefully this is developed for a future update!

  • Jeffy Can You can use Skype, bring the callers into Rendezvous through NDI and use a separate Skype call recorder as a possible workaround.

  • CraigS What would be the intent of using skype only to then bring them in via Rendezvous? That isn't very clear as to how one would even do that.

    Jeffy Can If you're using Skype, word of warning, each NDI audio feed contains the audio feed for ALL your guests so you only need one of the audio channels into Wirecast. You will still need to bring in the "Local" input for yourself which will have an audio channel but again, any number of guests will be mixed down to each. Also, if possible, use a different machine for Skype on the same gigabit network if you're going with this approach. Also also... heads up the CPU load of Skype + NDI gets fairly high and he current implementation of Wirecast starts having syncing issues with NDI if the CPU load is over 40%-50%.

  • Matthew Potter There are video recorders for Skype if one wanted to record that. One would use Wirecast for recording the callers.

  • CraigS But as Matthew said, Skype merges audio. The various tools are not capable of recording individual isolated audio for each remote guest in Skype. Realistically, I don't understand why ISO would not be available for Rendezvous. The data is there, it should be able to be done.

     We certainly do and it involves some challenges.

  • Jay Rozanski Thanks. I think there are a few people who could really use this.

  • CraigS Guess who has a work around for this???

    Ok - so you can't record ISO's, but you can record Program Out.

    I've managed to successfully open 3 versions of Wirecast on the same machine

    WC1: Master vision mix record

    WC2: Open up and add a Rendezvous not forgetting to map audio to specific channel. Make live in programme and record that in the 2nd wirecast window

    WC3: do the same with WC2 Rendezvous connection

     

    BINGO - it's a hack, but it's awesome. Oh, and i'm recording to 2x separate SSDs splitting the load. CPU is quite high, but not excessive. 

    I'm now going to use it record a TV chat show for broadcast next week as we're not allow to film in the studio anymore. I'll feedback on its success.

      Simply open more than one wirecast programme. You can have multiple sessions open. Just keep an eye on CPU as it's heavy use.

      Wirecast don't official support this, but it does work if your computer is powerful enough.

  • Jay Rozanski You'll find there are a few interesting things you can do when you open multiple simultaneous Wirecast documents. It's not "officially" supported because of the potential combinations that can result in issues but with a robust and well-managed computer, it certainly can be done and greatly extends things. A nice tip for multi-document use. Thanks for that.

  • Hi. I just bought the Pro Version, with the only goal: being albe to record 4 simultanous rendezvous calls as ISO-streams 🙄

    As the Corona virus is spreading around, and no one is allowed to do studio recordings ... this would be a very handy feature. Does it take that long to built this into the ISO recorders ???

  • Christophe Vandenbussche Wirecast doesn't yet ISO record Rendezvous calls. Please go to our feature request forum and vote for it. Fill out the previously posted form in this thread and explain your need. The developers are listening but it takes some work to implement this.

  • CraigS Hi Craig, i'm trying to do the same thing also, so i can edit after the recording by adding some graphics... that will not be ready for the record day.

    i will vote through the request forum 

    cheers
