Hi,

I try to give Ardour3 another chance by designing some sounds to a short movie.

After I installed "harvid" I can import the mov-video sequence and I see the thumbnails.

But I can't activate the Video-Monitor in the menue "Windows". Its just grayed out. But I need to see a bigger video on my external screen.

I tried to find something with Google, but there is nothing.

Every hint is welcome. :)

Did you get ardour from ardour.org? If not, the problem is with your distribution's packaging of Ardour.

Mh, that could be the problem. I installed it with pacman. But there are no known issues with it.
But I'll give it a try and let you know. :)

Okay, now its available.
But when I activate it, I got a 5sec lag and nothing happens.
No errors in log. :-?

I do not provide any support for versions of Ardour distributed by others.

You best bet is going to get on IRC (See the #ardour link at the bottom of the page) and ask in there. It sounds like Ardour may not be able to run the appropriate jadeo helper that should work fine.

Hello. I would like to try ARDOUR3 exactly because of Video-monitoring and I am ready to pay for it 1$. But as I can see if I pay 1$ for I can not try ARDOR3, only 2.x...
So does video-monitoring included in 2.x ? or which way can I try Ardour3

Very thanks

You can download A3 for free. You just cannot save any plugin-presets.
