Overlapping Accidentals

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).
  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

Hi,

Accidentals are overlapping and thus unreadable (see Screenshot).

I'm using Synthesia 10.6.1.5337 on iPad Pro 2018, but it's also happening on OS X Catalina.

Sorry for the trouble. This will be fixed by Synthesia 11.

Hello Nicholas

I don't know if Synthesia will save the settings for the channels of a multi-track song? If yes, please let me know where, and how to edit them. I want to apply 1 setting for all the songs I have (duplicated and change the name song, i think).

Also, please try to add a batch rendering feature to the upcoming updated version of Video Creator, I really need it, thank you.

And does Video creator use cpu to export? I just upgraded vga but the export time is the same.

For replicating settings across multiple songs (if I understood you correctly), you may be able to use the Metadata Editor. Assuming the songs had the same general internal structure (number of tracks, order of tracks for left/right hand, etc.), you could extract the settings for one of them, then copy-paste some of that between the fields in the Metadata Editor.

Batch/command-line rendering is definitely on the list for the next Video Creator update.

And, unfortunately, everything is done on the CPU for now (although it'll use as many cores/threads as you have available, which should help). You may be able to work around this if you use the Windows version of the tool, export as AVI, and choose a codec that has GPU acceleration. I don't know of any codecs that fit that description, but it would technically be a workaround.

Otherwise, I've got "experiment with hardware accelerated video encoding (NVENC, AMD VCN, and Intel Quick Sync)" rather far down the task list (after Synthesia 11 at around line 1420 right now).

Thanks for your efforts, I can't wait for the next releases of Synthesia, as well as Video Creator. ;)
