Playing Back Video on Other Computers

You can play back video on another computer to free up resources for audio and MIDI processing on your main CPU. This is recommended, as playback of high-resolution video can be quite demanding on the CPU.

Procedure

  • Move video tracks to another computer.

Result

Since all transport commands respond on the VST System Link computers, scrubbing video is possible even in case it is coming from another computer.

When scrubbing, the playback on the linked systems may not be perfectly in sync. In addition to this, there are some further restrictions when scrubbing via VST System Link:

  • Always use the system where you started scrubbing to control the scrubbing.

    Changing the scrub speed on a remote system only changes the speed on the local system.

  • You can start playback on all systems.

    This stops scrubbing and enters playback on all systems in sync.
