Re: DCP doesn't play in 5.1

First, thanks for all your helpful suggestions. Second, we were able to look at the meters, and guess what? It's in 5.1! Just the center, left, and right channels are way louder. The editor found some problems with the sound mix, so he's fixing that. I'll see if his new render fixes it. If not, I'll...

Re: DCP doesn't play in 5.1

So sound test failed. I was standing right under the surround speakers and heard nothing during a part where I know there is surround sound. We will check the meters as soon as the next movie finishes. Are there any settings I might be missing that would cause a Christie projectors not to recognize ...

Re: DCP doesn't play in 5.1

Well crap. Just listened to the thing and the damn left channel is louder than all the others. I didn't do the edit, but perhaps the audio channels are out of order. Will definitely check with the editor. If they are wrong, I'm sure I can just use the matrix to change which channels are assigned to ...

DCP doesn't play in 5.1

Hi, I've got a film screening at a local theater in two days. I made a DCP for the showing from a .mov with 5.1 sound. When the theater tests my DCP, we see the film but only hear sound from (I think the left) channel. First, I think DCP-o-matic is creating a 5.1 file. It creates two .mxf files, the...
