DESIGN YOUR OWN VIRTUAL STUDIO

Virtual Space Maker – a free virtual set design editor is an additional module of RECKEEN LITE system, supplementary to LITE Production module. It has also been prepared to work as a stand-alone program that can be installed on any PC. With its help, you can easily prepare your own scenography of a virtual studio. The design consists of layers, placed one above the other. This way, you can create a composition of pre-prepared graphics and layers representing signals – sources A and B (Talents) and sources B and C (Screens). After saving such project as a rec2D file, it is possible to use it as a ready-made virtual studio set design, i.e. to load it into the RECKEEN LITE system.

WORKING WITH LAYERS

The design of a studio is done with the use of layers, placed one above the other. The lowest layer is the one seen as the most distant from the camera. This way, you can create a virtual space using pre-prepared graphics or images. Additional layers are: a talent layer (figure of a person appearing in the virtual studio) and a screen layer (a place where multimedia are displayed).

GRAPHICS USER INTERFACE

The production module allows you to manage your work in virtual studio 3D. At any moment, you can look at the preview and configure program elements, such as video content used (including choosing a new one), shots’ sequence, camera transitions, or audio control. It enables you to configure the user’s view (including the MULTIVIEWER option to view all the selected content and videos simultaneously) to best suit your production needs. What’s more, it allows you to adjust the current broadcast signal and prepare the next shot at the same time.

SUPPORTED FORMATS

The editor allows you to load graphic files in the following formats: PNG, JPG, JPEG, and BMP. The recommended file resolutions are: 1920 × 1080 or 2880 × 1620. What’s more, you can also use PNG files that contain transparency (alpha channel).

Q&A

CAN I USE A READY-MADE SET DESIGN PROVIDED WITH RECKEEN LITE SYSTEM AND INTRODUCE SOME CHANGES TO IT?

Yes, it is possible. After loading a scenography to the editor, you just have to save the file under a different name. Afterwards, in such scenography you can, for example, insert additional studio equipment using an object layer or a .png file with transparency (alpha channel).

WHERE CAN I GET .PNG OBJECT FILES WITH A TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND?

There is a rich library of such files in the Reckeen system. These kind of files can be created with, for example, GIMP program. You can also download ready-made files from the Internet using a search engine. When searching for such image, select Search Tools color: transparent. These are the files that have a characteristic checkered background representing an alpha channel or transparency.

HOW TO MAKE SURE MY GRAPHICS CARD IS COMPATIBLE WITH DIRECTX 11?

First of all, you can check on the seller’s website whether your graphics card is compatible with DirectX 11.

You can also open DirectX diagnostics tool to help you check, if your computer meets the minimum requirements. To start the DirectX diagnostic tool, click Window’s Start button and type ‘dxdiag’ in the search box, and then press ENTER.
