Media: What are the file rendering specifications for a multi-monitor array?

When rendering your final files, use the following settings:

  • Constant Bit Rate (CBR) - 10-50 Mbps depending on the quality you'd like. The higher the bit rate, the larger the file
  • Render at maximum depth
  • 1 key frame spacing
  • H.264 codec
  • Keep your file names simple, just add a -# to the end of the file name
  • Pro-Player Plus does not support H.265 nor ProRes encoded files

Each player looks for it's particular file by the -# incorporated into the file name. Example, player #1 looks for any file with -1. Use NO SPECIAL CHARACTERS OR BLANK SPACES! Here are examples of bad as well as properly formatted file names:

Bad File Naming

foobar ver 2.mp4
foobar-ver2.mp4

Proper File Name

foobar_ver2-1.mp4

Player #2 looks for foobar-2.mp4, so a 4 player array would require you to render 4 files:

foobar-1.mp4
foobar-2.mp4
foobar-3.mp4
foobar-4.mp4

USB thumb drives are the easiest and fastest way to load media. See the section Media: How do I load media on to the player? for more information on this method.
