It IS the dot that shows microphone access to the computer.
The only way I know to be rid of it for Videosync is to deny Ableton access to the microphone in Mac System Preferences.
System Prefs > Security and Privacy > Microphone > unselect Ableton Live in the menu and reboot Live if necessary.
The only catch is, now Ableton won’t receive ANY audio input (microphone or any audio interface) until you restore this setting, which is a bugger if you have any live audio input to your Ableton session.
There are/were other ways around killing the orange dot that require doing some freaky stuff in Terminal, but this involves greatly compromising your Mac security settings - something that I’m not prepared to do.
This definitely is a major issue for anyone wanting to use a Mac for professional presentation video! See below:
Ha. I had a suspicion. Thank you for confirming it! As it happens, I’m not doing audio input to Ableton in this particular configuration, so I could do this workaround, and may. Still janky as hell though But thank you!
Yeah, I reckon that for $800 I would rather have the dot In all seriousness, though, overscanning is a good idea! I bet at least some of the venues we encounter will have people who know how to do that with their projector. EVERYONE ELSE GETS THE DOT
