Incomplete Clip

Just as the Dummy Clip, this menu item opens the Clip Properties dialog.

Usually, the incomplete clip is still being captured at the moment of playback. You need to create such an Incomplete clip entry in the playlist and check Live (delayed) file. At a given time you start capturing this clip to the specified location, and once there are a few seconds of it, available on the storage, X-Pert Playout marks it as a valid clip and it can be played immediately. Thus, capturing and playback proceed simultaneously. If you want to predefine the file length despite its real length, just check Set out point of live item. With this setting the file will be played exactly until the time you have specified, even if it is longer.

NOTE: The TDIR option is hardware-dependent. See also APPENDIX 15 - Incomplete clips workflow & TDIR .
