I am seeking to make the Jog Function, which selects frames, pick up speed. I am aware that speed capability in Datavyu is accomplished with the Shuttle Function. Is there a way to make the selection of frames go faster?

The jog feature on Datavyu's controller does not have the ability to go at different speeds. Holding down jog will be the fastest you can play the video with that feature. Please use the shuttle feature to play the video at different speeds backwards and forwards.

Please see documentation on the Controller here:

Thank you for your reply. Before I contacted Datavyu, I tried to hold down the jog button by itself and then holding the button while pressing a combination of the Shift, Crtl, and Alt buttons. The playhead did not move with any of these attempts. Otherwise, the program appears to be working well. Do you have suggestions about why I can only use the Jog function with mouse clicks? Thank you for your time.

Please use the User guide information to learn how to enable holding down the jog key on macs: I've copied the information below.

Note For users of Mac OS X: recent versions of OS X do not allow you to hold down a key as a default, instead it brings up a mini-menu to help you select common accents for that letter. If you want to be able to jog by holding down the 1 or 3 keys, you will need to open your Terminal and run the following command:

defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false To undo the change, run the same command but with -bool true rather than -bool false.

Thank you again. I reviewed the controller guide and I did not see instructions for using the number row on a PC laptop with the Datavyu controller. Is there a way to Jog on a PC laptop other than mouse clicking?

Please purchase a USB numpad so you can control video playback with that. You should never use the mouse to click the Datavyu controller to manipulate playback.
