Add more powerful production capabilities
Queue a list of multiple videos, images, audio or live shots to play successively. This is great for adding commercial breaks, for streaming archived content during off hours, or it can even be used to rotate live camera views. Automate your broadcast workflow between media and live shots. A separate playlist window lets you easily create playlists and see what’s scheduled. Drag-and-drop new content, trim and edit recorded video, and set what happens upon completion of the playlist - return to your last live shot, loop content, hold last shot, or display current preview window.
Easy media editing
Easily trim and edit your recorded media (including replays) from the new preview window. With any piece of media you can custom configure its length, and set in and out points. Zoom in on timeline for more precise editing.
Wirecast now lets you capture and replay clips of your live production. Great for sporting events or any live show where you want to go back and reshow a portion of the broadcast. During a live show, simply click the “replay” button to capture a clip and add it to a master layer. When replaying, you can slow it down, speed it up, or scrub across the entire clip to find the exact point you want to show. You can also suppress audio or add another audio track and set up a template for your Replay shots. Easily create highlight reels by combining Replay with Playlists.
