Re: Prores to DCP, slightly les bright.

As a matter oft fact - everyone is today still referring to rec.709 - however, that is a deprecated standard from the early nineties, and it never mentioned an actual display gamma value (because it implied the natural gamma of CRT monitors of the time). Whenever equipment nowadays claims rec.709 co...

Re: Best frame rate for a 29.97fps file

In general, 30fps is the best choice for 29,97 - if the projector is able to display 30fps properly (should be SMPTE, but some few systems may also allow this in Interop-DCPs). However, if this 29.97 file has been converted from 25fps- it is impossible to give a good suggestion, as we don't know how...

Re: Player No way to Taskbar

F11 toggles between full screen/window view.

You wouldn't need to uninstall the application, just trash the preferences in

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Hmm. you could install the free Audacity with the FFMPEG Plugin.

That will allow you to load the audio MXF into the audio editor, so you can compare audio levels 1:1 within the file.

Odd...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Ah... I think you made a mistake creating the VF - this has nothing to do with the combiner. When you create VF, you first have to disable the OV audio. Otherwise, OV and VF audio may be summed into the new VF audio. If the audio was different, you would probably instantly notice it. But if you just...

Re: International Distribution Question

I believe they demand this for a 4k DCP only - and not a 'real' 4k DCP, but an UHD container (3840/2160). That together with the 100% P3 and 0.03nits tells me they want to create an UHD/HDR distribution from that 4k DCP. That is the reason why the want full P3 color and deep blacks. Well, DCP-o-mati...

Re: International Distribution Question

I think we need more information. These numbers indicate a hardware specification (e.g. a display or projector). But DCP-o-matic is software that deals with content.

Re: Error when open a project

I also noticed the LIBRAS in the name. I know what LIBRAS is when it comes to DCP. Maybe DCP-o-matic has trouble with some closed captions content that is used in the project. Please send the metadata.xml file of this project to Carl. He may also need some of the other files later.

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

You have no trouble playing SMPTE content? I guess you rarely play DCPs with encrypted subtitles? Well let's see what Carl can do about combiner. It's hard to understand how these combined DCPs would cause these issues. The trouble is - while the file format for DCPs is specified, the way servers re...
