To try OpenSloMo client you need:

  1. Download and unzip OpenSloMo CasparCG server
  2. Change the "media path" in it's caspar.config file. Use the full path to the folder for client to be able to reach it.
  3. (Optional) Download and unzip media archieve to the above mentioned folder
  4. Download and unzip OpenSloMo
  5. Run OpenSloMo CasparCG server, run OpenSloMo.exe
  6. In the Edit -> Settings menu add CasparCG server ("localhost", I think). Then choose the Recording video mode you prefer and press Ok. If everything is right, you'll be able to see single AMB file and grid 16-14_CAM_GRID1 files in the Videos list (if you have done optional stage 3).
  7. Select Playback, choose 16-14_CAM_GRID1  to open grid of this streams.
  8. In the bottom of the Preview field move Slider to the beginning point and press [, then move SeekSlider to the ending point and press ], choose the camera (1-4), speed (1x, 0.5x, 0.33x or 0.25x) and press Play!. If everything is right, you'll see the replay in the CasparCG server OGL window.

First of all you must choose one of the scenarios below to use and download it's config file:

  • Decklink SDI input, HDMI (screen) output. This is the most simple solution that can work only if you have HDMI input in your Video switch. Download.
  • Decklink SDI input, another Decklink SDI output. This is a basic solution. You have to use two different Decklink SDI devices (or domething like Decklink Duo): one for input and anoter one for output. Download.
  • 2,3 or 4 Decklink SDI input, another Decklink SDI output. This is the most useful scenario when you record 2,3 or 4 streams and output results via SDI. You need 2,3 or 4 SDI devices (or Decklink Quad) for input and one additional device for SDI output. Download.
  • 2,3 or 4 Decklink SDI input, HDMI (screen) output. This is the same scenario as before besides using HDMI output of your videocard to send result to your HDMI input of the Video switch. Download.

Then you must put the chosen file to the CasparCG directory, remove old caspar.config file and rename your file to "caspar.config".
Now you may open it with any text editor and set your preferred resolution in all <video-mode> tags. Here is a list of all cases: PAL, NTSC, 1080i5000, 576p2500, 720p2500, 720p5000, 720p5994, 720p6000, 1080i5000, 1080i5994, 1080i6000, 1080p2500, 1080p2997, 1080p3000, 1080p5000.
Besides that you may change:

  • the path to the media folder in <media-path> tags, program will read and write all media files there;
  • your output SDI device number in <decklink><device>ID</device> field;
  • output Screen device in <screen><device>ID</device> field.

Description of all other options is available in the CasparCG official site and forum.

If you choose file in the library but do not see players in the right panel of OpenSloMo client, this most probably is the bug of your installed video codecs. Try to install this codecs:

There are 2 known problems that may lead to a program crash: bad save data or bad file names. To find and fix your problem you may:

  1. remove the OpenSloMo saves folder C:\Users\YOUR_USER\.casparcg\openslomo and restart the program;
  2. remove all video files from the caspar's media folder, restart the program and check if it helps.

To add REPLAY title you must put mov video file with alpha-channel with name "" to the media folder and enable checkbox in the client.
To add transitions before and after replays you must put mov video files with names "" and "" to the media folder and enable checkbox in the client.

All you need to use Shuttle Pro device is to connect it, install it's drivers, run it's software and bind it's controls to the keyboard hotkeys of OpenSloMo. My settings are in the picture below. You may try or change it at your choice!

Then system will wait untill you press the Note or move Continuous controller which should be bound to the chosen function. If the system catches it, you'll see it's midi signal description in the Signal 1 field.
