Re: Unable to Create DCPs in Anything Other than L&R Channels

The UpmixerA and B are experimental. You definitely need to listen to the DCP in a cinema in order to verify the result. Some material comes out strange. The Mid/Side decoder only covers the front channels and is more predictable. While in general, it is advisable to route dialog to the center chann...

Re: Scope pushed to 16:9 when testing

Can you show us a screenshot, and upload the project metadata file?

Re: Unable to Create DCPs in Anything Other than L&R Channels

I guess the files you receive for DCP conversion are plain stereo. So, that is what you see in the audio matrix. Creating surround audio or a center mix is usually only done by professionals, or very advanced amateurs. If all you get is stereo, it usually doesn't make much sense to try and create a ...

Re: Loop reel instead of copy (minimize size)

Ioannis - I don't mind any form of 'reasonable' discussion - be it pure statements, or trying to convince someone ;-) As a tech guy, I certainly would love to have an application that allows me to create any type of DCP that is supported by the standards. But we also have to think in favour of the c...

Re: Loop reel instead of copy (minimize size)

Again - the question is how to integrate such a feature in the current GUI in an elegant way. I think this is not an easy task, to offer access to the individual reel. It's a completely different approach, which so far is source based. I consider the current GUI already clogged for the average user,...

Re: External Hard Drive to Ingest?

The Christie IMB-S2 (first generation Christie IMS) offers a USB 2.0 port for local ingest. The Christie IMS uses an external NAS for DCP storage, ingested DCPs are copied to that NAS during the ingest. That NAS (there are a few different types) usually offers a USB 3.0 ingest port as well. The more...

Re: Loop reel instead of copy (minimize size)

The question really is how to add this functionality in an elegant way. The trouble is, so far, DCP-o-matic doesn't offer any direct handle to reels. Wondering wether a global option 'reference content' could handle all incidents. DCP-o-matic would then have to identify individual content that is re...

Re: Attention Mac users!

How long did you wait? It may take quite a while for the first time, and you shouldn't try to start any other application at the same time.

Re: DCP-o-matic Encoder Server - How can I make it work?

I possible, do a full install of the current 2.14.x version on all machines - install main app and encoding server on all machines. It might help diagnose the issue if you try encode server detection across all machines. While it is possible to operate different versions of main app and encode serve...
