3. Scheduled Recording (just:in v3.0)




What is Scheduled Recording?

Scheduled Recording records Clips based on Calendar Events in the local Apple Calendar of the machine running just:in Engine. After configuring a Channel in just:in Engine, a Calendar with that same name will be automatically created for that Channel.

Once set you can add Calendar Events in the Calendar app. They will be instantly visible in the Schedule section of just:in. 

Making a Scheduled Recording

  1. Open Apple Calendar.
  2. Select the desired Channel in the list of Calendars on the left.
  3. Add Events to the Calendar.
  4. The Events will show up in the just:in user interface. Each Event will result in one Recording.

Using Variables in Calendar Events

By default the Calendar Event Name will be used as the Clip's name. You may use Variables like <Channel>, <Date> and <Time>. Refer to the chapter Names for further information about Variables.

Repeating Calendar Events

Repeating a Calendar Event would result in a file which gets overwritten every time the same event is executed again. To avoid this you can add the Variables <Date> and <Time> to the Calendar Event. This appends the date and time (= beginning of the corresponding Calendar Event) to the Clip Name. 

Maximum Record Length

It is not possible to use Calendar Events which exceed a length of 12 hours. just:in will truncate the Recording length automatically, if required.
