Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Another round of testing different things: First off, VF packages do work fine when I put them together correctly :? Second, I tried the latest version of the combiner. Despite all appearing to ingest fine (including looking right in the browser for once), none of the four compositions would play. F...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Well I'm an idiot. Carsten, the audio from the OV was active in the channel multiplexer so it was being concatenated with the VF audio. When I removed the OV audio from the matrix the VF and OV 7.1 audio levels were identical. Sorry about that. So once again the only errors I have currently are with...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

I'm not sure if it's doing that.

When I add the 5.1 OV and the 7.1 WAV I can only select "Use video as OV and make VF". The option to do the same with the audio is locked out and not selectable at all, so I would think if it is concatenating the audio files that would be a bug.

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Hi, I again. Long post to follow... I tried the latest version of the combiner, with the same results: none of the files would play once ingested. I also tried making a 7.1 version of my test file as both an OV with picture and VF with just audio (based on the 5.1 OV). As standalone packages all thr...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

We're a two screen theater in small town USA, subtitled films don't stand a chance... Hence we've never had to test it. But yes, we can ingest SMPTE. Although it's still debatable as to exactly how many SMPTE features Hollywood uses since they're still trying to ensure maximum compatibility. And as ...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

No worries, you make a good point. I don't know why it hasn't been updated other than "If it ain't broke....." as we've never had any ingest problems with commercial films. But as I'm sure you noticed from that little Voyagers s**t storm over at Film Tech, nobody's been proactive with tech...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

So I did my test, not as in depth as I would've liked though. Ingested three CPLs from a consolidated DCP. All three ingested without error and were 'green' in the media browser, which usually indicates a good file. One thing that was different however: on our browser there is a 'j2k' or 'j4k' icon ...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

That would certainly be interesting; just the XML files would be good to see... carl@dcpomatic.com What's the best way to get those to you? Edit: Nevermind. I can't see my nose in front of me apparently. FYI I'll be doing a more thorough test tomorrow ingesting both the individual DCP's and the com...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Might have discovered some bugs with the combiner, but I'm not sure where the error lies. I combined those 14 DCPs together, including some supplemental audio versions (VF packages). Initially those VF entries played with no audio, but the video (that it was linking to from a different composition) ...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Carsten, with the GDC SX1000A it's the same issue. So I borrowed A Quiet Place II and examined the hard drive (phenomenal movie and sound mix, I might add). There are multiple CPLs, multiple PKLs, but only one ASSETMAP and VOLINDEX, and it's all contained at the root level of the drive. I also looke...
