F.A.Q. DiscoBrick

  • How do I upload photos to Flickr? [+]
    To upload photos you will need:
    -In “Media Source” choose "pictures"
    -Check the box FEED and enter a valid address

    In any Flickr page, addresses RSS are available below. Open the page and copy and paste the address. If the address is not correct, an error message appears directly on the Effects panel.
    to display the FEED you need to remove the language code (in red) in the Flickr RSS address.


    The code to remove is from "&" onwards.
  • How to change the current theme ? [+]
    Use arrows buttons ( left and right direction)
    you can set also the lenght of the duration:

    • Random: The track changes is random.
    • Manual: the current theme remains online until you change it manually by using the options panel or pressing the Next / Previous keys;
    • Time : the theme changes after an user defined interval (ranging from 10 to 600 seconds);
  • How can I use Live Video or Pictures in DiscoBrick themes? [+]
    You can customize a theme by replacing various textures present in a theme with your pictures, images or live video. It all depends on what you select in the “media source" . The possible settings are:

    Default Theme: the engine uses the original textures from the theme;

    The engine uses the the original theme of the theme.

    the engine uses one or a set of images dropped by the user in the area near the menu. This option currently supports only images in JPG or PNG format.

    Important note about the App Store version ( Lite and full) :
    Why a set of skins/pictures selected from one of my folders are not present when I restart the App?
    - Because, due to the usual Apple Sandbox Violation, the App itself can access a restricted set of folders (pictures, movies), images not loaded from these folder cant be reloaded from the app (only thru user's Standard Open Panel, so basically you need to repeat the operation)

    Live Video: the engine uses the live video (from camera or external firewire sources in the PRO version);
    Note: to show in real time the video make sure to choose "fast" in "media speed".
    Note: The FW camera is available in the Public/Pro version because the FW connection is unavailable by default in the App Store limitations: APple Sandbox Violation: firewire A/V devices not supported;
  • How can I save a screenshot ? [+]
    You're able to get a screenshot only in the PRO/PUBLIC version of DisciBrick. In the AppStore version we must respect some Apple limitations. In some cases the option is not available: Apple Sandbox Violation don't allow to save a file must show a Save AS Dialog, that's impossible when in fullscreen.

    To save a screenshot in the Public/Pro version of DiscoBrick just press this button or the [S] screenshot key: the screen flashes to confirm that the rescue is completed. Screenshots are saved on your desktop.
  • Why I have two Full Screen options? [+]
    DiscoBrick comes with a robust and intelligent FullScreen option.
    We've planned the windows managment for the best use with two monitors or with an external Projector.
    With a regular Full/Screen you can use DiB with other application simultaneously, always with your windows in front ( in focus).

    OS X 10.9
    and upper offer by default a new full screen method.

    Click over the arrows icon ( top-right).

    To exit from the full screen you must move the cursor at the right-top side of your screen and clicking again over the icon. In Lion you can't work in both "windows spaces" simultaneously.

    Important note: Make sure to avoid the use of both simultaneously.
    The Internal Ful-Screen method of DiscoBrick is always the best solution.
  • Why my personal images are not displayed? [+]
    Stacks Image 11866
    Make sure the "media Source / Pictures" is active.
  • Why all effects seems inactive or seems sleeper? [+]
    The AUDIO is detected through the audio-IN on your machine.
    So, if you have a Microphone or an alternative AUDIO-IN source you must check the volume. The best settins is 1 at 70% and 2 at 50%.

    1- At the right-bottom side of the Remote panel you can choose the level.

    2 - Moreover you can also open the main AUDIO-SOURCE panel of the System with the small button at the right side of the audio Slider.

    Note: the Audio Level of the APP is in addition to the main audio level ( of the OSX) and not a replacement.
    If the Main AUDIO LEVEL is turned off also the AUDIO LEVEL of the App can't work.

    DISCOBRCK PRO with MID works in the same way. Check the MIDI-IN level.
  • How to Uninstall DiscoBrick [+]
    Just go to the Applications folder and delete DiscoBrick ( Drag the App in the trash).

  • Is the Unregistered/Demo version time limited or crippled ? [+]
    As we already said, the freely downloadable Demo version of DiscoBrick has exactly the same features as the registered version - no time limitation, no disabled features - just a nagging demo text placed where it hurts the most :-).
  • DiscoBrick Doesn’t seem to accept my registration code [+]
    If you experience some trouble with registration (the Demo image appears, however the appis registered) or your Options arent maintained correctly after a startup probably you have a problem with the preference file and/or his permission.

    Our first suggestion is: repair the disk permissions, using Apple’s Disk Utility tool ( applications/utilities/Disk Utility), Onyx™, Cocktail™, or any other quality disk management tool. If the problem persists, delete the “DiscoBrick.preferences” file, located in the /Library/Preferences/ folder and retry the registration (you must provide both paypal mail and your personal code again).

If there are any questions please contact us
