  • Stay Calm!!! Think Logically!
  • Routing (Ableton, Virtual Connections)
  • Connections, What's most likely to Fail?
  • Wrong Cues
  • Wrong File (Old arrangement etc..)
  • When possible use seperate machines for each element

In this course you’ll learn how to control video from Ableton Live. We’ll specifically take a look at how to use Ableton Live to control Pro Video Player 2 and Qlab. You’ll also learn how to use video in Live directly. We’ll look at how to program cues efficiently each week, and how to have freedom when using video content live.
