Hi Martin,

What do I have to do to upgrade to HD-Pro and enable the Multicorder option?
It does not allow me to do so via the website, citing there is no upgrade available.

Need it a.s.a.p.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob,

As your upgrade has been sorted out, I thought I would post the upgrade process here for customers in the future.
To upgrade from HD to HD Pro is a manual process that can be done by emailing us directly.

For all other upgrades, the upgrade can be done from the vMix web site:

Regards,

Hi Martin, i have done the first tests with the multirecorder and I am quite impressed.

In your email you told me that 4x full HD requires a fast SSD but I do not have that at this moment to I decided to try my dedicated video disks for that.
I use WD Blue 1Tb (2x) and they are normally configured, not as raid.

This is what I saw:
After applying the new HD-Pro key, I tried the first time with 1 program recording to disk1 on AVI using mjpg compressor and 4x multirecorder on disk2 and to my surprise there seem to be no dropped frames!
The odd thing was that besides the start button turning green in the multirecorder frame, the time was not updated ( or the dropped frames) so it seems, but i made a recording of about 11 minutes resulting in 4 files of more than 8 Gb each.
And they played back in VLC without apparent dropped frames.

I wanted to make sure that this was repeatable so i needed to reboot the computer and found that in the meantime Windows update had downloaded additional files so the restart came with updating Windows and the registry.

And after that I could not get the same result anymore!
I am not finished with testing but until now only the Cineform codec gives reasonable results with only a few dropped frames in several minutes and only if I do not use the program recording.

Tomorrow I will continue testing but maybe you have some ideas what to adjust because it seems to me that my system is able to do it but I need the right settings.

Rob
