[JIM] Configuration Panel v.6.5

The Just Control Configuration window lists all connected Just In Engines and available Channels (i.e. Inputs). Within this panel, the Just In Engine and Channel settings can be adjusted and all kinds of Presets (Capture, Destination, Naming, Metadata, Markers, Events, and Configurations) can be created and modified.

Please note that setting changes will not be forwarded to all open Just Control Configuration panels, and restarting the Just Control Configuration panel is required to see the changes applied to another panel. Therefore, please ensure that only one Just Control Configuration panel is open, when changing settings (close all other Just Control Configuration panels on different machines before applying configuration changes).


The configuration of just:in mac is done within the Just Control application. All settings and devices are managed herein. The only required step on the engine machine(s) is to start the related Just In Engine application.

Available Settings in Just Control

Here’s an overview of the settings available in the tabs within the Just Control Configuration window. An in-depth explanation of these options can be found throughout this user guide.

  • Device: Offers device-specific settings, such as “IP and Port”, “Fallback frame count”, and “LTC Audio Device” settings (this feature was first introduced in just:in mac v.5.1). Furthermore all channels of a selected Device/Engine can be stopped and started within the Device Tab.

    • Device/Engine Port: Just In Engine port can be adjusted here.

  • Capture Presets: Define Codec/Container settings and other “Capture Preset” related options, such as “Audio Mapping” or “Overlay” options.

  • Destination Presets: set your recording destinations here.

  • Naming Presets: configure the naming convention of recorded files.

  • Metadata Sets: choose flexible templates for metadata elements.

  • Marker Presets: define custom Markers for use in Adobe Premiere Pro.

  • Events: Pre- and/or Post-recording Events, which can be executed at every start and/or stop recording process.

    • Devices: within the “Devices” tab, Event Devices (Bash Script, Apple Script, HTTP, TCP) can be created. Which can be used later within the “Events” tab to create recording events.

    • Events: in the “Events” tab, previously created Devices can be used to create Recording Events. These Events can be selected within the Inspector for each Channel.

  • System:

    • Logs & Profiles: the related Just In Engine, Channel, and Just Control logs can be saved here (aka “TOA System Profile”).

    • Configurations: within this settings tab, it is possible to save Just In Engine Configurations. Switching between available Just In Engine Configurations can be performed here as well.

  • Activation: activate your just:in mac Channels here. You’ll need a valid permanent or temporary licence to do that. Note, that you can always run a fully featured trial version of just:in mac with the only restriction of a watermark applied to the recorded video file.
