The IN and OUT buttons in this group allow you to indicate the In points and Out points for events you wish to record for later replay.
Pressing IN actually performs several related functions. First, remember that TriCaster must be in Record mode for any instant replay marking purpose.
For this reason, if you should happen to push the IN button before enabling recording, it is enabled automatically (illuminating the interface Record button just as if you had pressed it on the screen).
With Record active, an In Point is set for the current clip that will eventually be stored (when you press OUT) in the currently delegated DDR (see Section 21.6.3).
Hint: Actually, the IN button can also be thought of as a ‘reset In Point’ function. Pressing it updates the In Point, discarding any incomplete clip (i.e., one for which an Out Point had not been set. The partially recorded data up to that time is simply dropped (and is not added to the DDR playlist).
ALT + IN
A different operation results when you hold down ALT (see Section 21.6.7) at the same time as you push IN. This operation updates the In Point of the active clip in the currently delegated DDR to the frame currently displayed.
TW-42 Notes This feature is supported on TW-42 as well.
Hint: This represents a non-destructive edit of the playlist clip, equivalent to dragging the trim handle at the left-hand end of the DDR scrub bar.
Pushing the OUT button likewise performs a short series of several actions:
- An Out point is assigned to the primary clip
- If the Add to switch is enabled in the Record Configuration panel, the clips is added to any targets configured in the associated destination menu (new clips are added to the end of the playlist)
Note: This is a non-destructive operation. Rather than actually chopping the file, recording continues without interruption, and an instance of the file is added to target playlists.
ALT + OUT
A different operation results when you hold down ALT (see Section 21.6.7) at the same time as you push OUT. This operation updates the Out Point of the active clip in the currently delegated DDR to the frame currently displayed.
SHIFT + OUT
Hold down SHIFT at the same time as you push OUT to automatically trim the play start setting of the newly added clip to a frame five seconds prior to the Out Point (this is a non-destructive trimming operation. The duration of the file on disk is not modified.)
This feature is supported on TW-42 as well.
Hint: This is a non-destructive edit of the playlist clip, equivalent to dragging the trim handle at right-hand end of the DDR scrub bar.
One Button Marking
Another handy method of creating clips for instant replay is referred to as ‘one button marking’. With Record enabled, watch for notable events, and simply press OUT whenever one occurs (no need to press IN beforehand in this case). This creates a new clip with an Out Point at the current frame, automatically setting the In Point to achieve the Duration set in the Record Configuration > Replay tab.
