Configure and calibrate multi-machine syncing
Frame accurate syncing is essential in multi-machine setups.
Set up a primary timecode source
Learn more about how to Configure timecode (LTC)
Set Multi-machine syncing to "Timecode" in SETUP > Show > Show settings > Base settings
Launch levels on all machines
timecode is available on all machines, by clicking on “Get all timecodes” in
SETUP > Calibration > Syncing
OR in the Status panel
A level needs to be running as the timecode is reported by the engine.
In case Multi-machine syncing is enabled and NO timecode is available:
All messages will still be processed, but they will not be in sync
Go to SETUP > Calibration > Syncing
Check if the input and output delays of all machines are the same
hardware differences might require slightly different delays
Sync an XR wall with a virtual set extension
When working with virtual set extensions, the time between filming the LED screen and displaying the rendered content should ideally be 0. As this is physically not possible we have to
reduce latency for XR machines
mitigate the remaining time difference between XR and set extension using an Set extension delay
Enable Allow decreasing buffer size in the overflow menu on the right
Decrease the delay for
XR machines on
AR machine on
Mitigate remaining time difference
Make sure Allow set extension delay is enabled
Add Set extension delay
switch the reprojection method and disable Tracking extrapolation
adjust the Execution time on the AR machine
Set extension delay
Add a delay to compensate for the time difference between XR and set extension rendering.
Extrapolates tracking to reduce the potential artifacts introduced by the latency compensation, but will not solve the issue on its own.
