Re: Inserting accessibility content to a DCP

I contacted Christian in a private message about his video. Let's see...

Re: I have doubts if the material is re-encoded.

If you feed it j2k image sequences, DCP-o-matic will still copy these j2k's into an MXF file, that is what you see. But the j2k data within the MXF is, as Carl says, bit identical to the j2k series. The same would even be true if you feed it a fully DCI compliant MXF - it needs to be rewrapped into ...

Re: Best Practices for aspect ratio handling for converting a Blu Ray 16x9 movie into a DCP

Hmm...which version of DCP-o-matic did you use? On what disc (internal, USB, format) did you create this DCP? I think this IS serious. I would redo the DCP, make sure the MXFs are actually recreated.

Re: Best Practices for aspect ratio handling for converting a Blu Ray 16x9 movie into a DCP

If you have an UHD source file, and you see that e.g. the color conversion is correct (some color spaces could be a problem), yes, the UHD source will probably give a slightly better result. I am not sure if DCP-o-matic correctly deals with the 10bit color depth, but, DCP uses 12bit full range, and ...

Re: Potential DCP issues (file system, audio channel order)

We had easyDCP player warnings earlier as well. Unfortunately, you only get explanations for these warnings with the full version. Bit of a neat trick... Usually, these are just minor formal complaints. DCP is quite complex, and some formal aspects can be argued about, without them being an actual p...

Re: Potential DCP issues (file system, audio channel order)

Paragon is known to work flaky with direct file access. I wouldn't use it for more than a straight copy between discs. NTFS is fine (make sure all DCP discs have an MBR partition table, not todays default GUID/GPT partition scheme). The Mac disc utility offers all necessary choices when partitioning...

Re: Best Practices for aspect ratio handling for converting a Blu Ray 16x9 movie into a DCP

The channel order should be correct for DTS-HD. When I grab a DTS-HD track, typically the standard dts core is included, and I can select in DCP-o-matic which of the two 6ch streams to use.

Re: Best Practices for aspect ratio handling for converting a Blu Ray 16x9 movie into a DCP

Looks good. If you are absolutely mad about scaling, you could leave out all scaling by choosing 'no scale', and then just crop away the same amount of vertical pixels. That would place a 1920/804 active image within a 2048/858 scope container. That would mean letter AND some pillarboxing, which may...

Re: Creating a DCP-o-matic Workstation

Not too far away, I guess, but it could be better. I guess you should have settled on AMD?

Re: Best Practices for aspect ratio handling for converting a Blu Ray 16x9 movie into a DCP

The current beta is very different around the scaling options. I guess I am personally responsible for this change, but I did not have the time to play with the new scheme so far. You may just as well use the latest release version - anyway recommended for production work, 2.15.x has a lot of fundam...
