    Default I know its been discussed before but.....video in traktor?

    hey all

    I know its been mentioned before but couldn't find much in search. Have Traktor/NI gave any sort of hints or ideas at all about a video plug in or functionality?

    For the last week or two its been in my head and the more i think about it the more i think its really something i wanna get into, and the edge it would give me over most other local DJ's in terms of getting some more work and stuff would be not insignificant.

    I know I could always switch to VDJ but having invested a lot of time and money into Traktor and getting it all set up with my VCI and stuff and running really well, i'm reluctant to think about changing again.

    In the past NI did have a job posting for someone that could add video to there product line, aside from that. Not too much has been heard, maybe they might have something up there sleeve for NAMM 2010

    i hope that Traktor never supports video. Its King when it comes to 4-deck mixing and effects, but video is another pair of shoes imo. Too much can be too much sometimes.

    better to jump on it now than let serato get on board before they are having to play catch up.

    its always better to lead, than to follow.

    serato wont get it right in a long time im afraid... till now they bound users to strictly one format, mp4. not really cool.

    I think developing existing market structures is the way to go.

    And there is no "jump on it now". It surely takes ages to implent video to the programcode that will be a stable version.

    Im not denying it would be cool, but is it really nessiscary?

    +sry for the misspellings, its way to early for me.

    Not even close in my personal opinion. And thats not the company line cus if it was i wouldnt be able to say it . It just my feeling.

    There are other items on the to-do list way before Video.

    Amen to that, id much prefer to them to master the audio side of things before getting into the video side of things. Theres still a HUGE amount of unexplored territory in the audio domain that needs to be covered before thinking about working on video too in my opinion.

    Yeah, Video is cool and all, but I'd rather see a LOT of other things before I even hope that NI tries to get into video.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    What i dont get is this clammer for every DJ program to all do the same thing.

    Why does Traktor "have to have" video just because VDJ and SSL do it.
    Yes i know you have to keep up with the competition etc but Traktor does so many things that other programs either cant or simply dont match.

    Why cant Traktor just try to be the best DJ software for DJs ?

    Look at where Traktor is now and the path its taken over the past few years. 4 decks , 24 FX, incredible Loop and hot cue features. That is where its strength is. Im not convinced that these features can be used to the full potential if you are trying to incorporate video.
    I know i certainly dont have the time during my mixes to be messing with video as well.

    Yes i know it can add to a stunning show if done properly but id say the any Video DJ will say that a DJ alone cant do the job well enough and DJ at the same time and that its just a gimmick for most.

    I know people will disagree but ask yourself, when you have seen Video used by DJs is it any good or is it just a guy playing a Beyonce tune on a big screen .

    Video in Traktor will not turn you into Coldcut (video DJ pioneers and developers of the Pioneer VCDJ).

    NI are supposedly exploring this but for the record i will oppose it at every opportunity because i think its a gimmick .

    maybe if they were to just make a different "version" of traktor for video. like traktor pro vs. traktor scratch pro vs. traktor duo, you know? that way they can still keep the interface for the people who don't really care for VDJ'ing, but please those who do.
