View Full Version : Deadair Screen
1st July 2003, 07:29
When nothing is being processed on NSVCAP, like no picture is beeing broadcasted, but you are still streaming your video, I wanted to display a 'deadair screen' which was going to be a .gif logo I designed. How do I go about setting that up?

You sure, because instead, a "black" screen appears, and I just wanted to replace that with a full screened logo of mine.
this software is new, there are many capabilities and UI enhancements left to do.

So it CAN be done? All I want to do is replace the black screen with a .gif picture I made.
well anything is possible, but you would have to write or find alternative software to do it. The NSV tools alone are not capable of doing this.

You could render a video file with an editing program that contains nothing but the image want. This file would only need to be a minute long or so, and when rendered to .NSV would be a very small file. When you are away, broadcast this file only, it will repeat itself over and over again. The down side is that you have to dedicate CPU time to broadcast this image.

I use camtasia, how do I go about doing that?

In camtasia, go to effects --> options, and then the watermark tab.
Choose the path to the image you want to broadcast.
Check "overlay", uncheck "keep aspect ratio when scaling", and slide the "image scale" slider to 100%. This will fill the viewers' windows with the image you've chosen. In NSVcap make sure to uncheck "capture audio" unless you want to broadcast your PC's or you mic's sound.
You'll still, however, have to actually capture part of your screen and broadcast it with camtasia for the overlayed watermark to show up in your stream. If you really want your dead air screen up all the time, that means dedicating this somewhat CPU intensive program... all the time. The other method I mentioned might be better, as you're really only using upload bandwidth on a constant basis, as opposed to your processor and memory.

Well, I'm going to capture my desktop when i'm ready to, but what i'm saying is, when i'm not capturing my screen (recording) I want a picture to be shown up on NSVcap. When I do press F9 to record, then the desktop is shown, F10 the deadair screen logo shows up.
