Cakewalk for video projection.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I'm trying to use Cakewalk for video projection, importing a video to Cakewalk's video track and play it  synchronised with the music.
My problem: I cannot have the video playing in full screen when I hit PLAY. So, is there a way to get the video started in full screen when I hit PLAY?
Or are better ways to do it?

Thank you.

Spacebar on the keyboard is the default shortcut to start/stop the transport.

I think you missed the point here. my question is HOW TO GET THE VIDEO FULL SCREEN when I hit play?

If the video view is not available, check the workspace setting. Either change the setting to one with the video view or set it to None.

I get the video view, but it is in a window. I WANT THE VIDEO VIEW TO CHANGE TO FULL SCREEN WHEN I HIT PLAY.....

Right-click the in the video view and change the Stretch Options to "Full Screen"

After that , it may be necessary to click the CbB icon in the task bar to give it focus to use the Spacebar to toggle the transport.

Man are you joking right? I said I want THE VIDEO VIEW TO CHANGE TO FULL SCREEN  WHEN I HIT PLAY..... I can't be more clear than this. I dont want to right click to get the FULL SCREEN in the Stretch options...

No, just misunderstood exactly what you were asking.

That is a feature request but chances are you will be able to save up and buy a second monitor before it gets implemented.

Computers do what you tell them to, not what you want them to. The sooner you get that into your head the happier you're going to be.

 

Did you even bother looking in the documentation to see if that's even a feature that's available?

There is no way to do what you want. However, this could work to a certain extent:

Create a shortcut for full view for video size.

  • Open video window
  • Hit spacebar to play video+audio
  • Click on the video window
  • Apply the shortcut
  • (you'll get the full screen video running)

It will not be what you need, I know, but it's closer.

--- or invert the thought process: embed the audio in your video using a video editor, or even CW export video features - , and use a video player with that capability instead?

Wow, there's an idea! Use an app that's designed for what you're trying to do.

Who would have ever thought of that?

Your solution somehow worked for me. Some brain and patience can make wonderfull things.... Thank you. Just an advice to the other participants: never be slave of any software, they always do much more than what it is expected to...

Some of the replies in this thread have been less than helpful and resulted in a ticket being raised.  I would remind people the purpose of these forums is to provided knowledge, help and assistance to fellow users or to seek help from Cakewalk support.

Consequently it is best, if you have nothing constructive to say, not to say anything.

It has also been noted that the OP's request is more a Feature request there I suggest he makes such a request in the appropriate Feedback Loop forum.

I note a solution has been found so to stop any more negativity I will close this thread down.
