Hi, there isn't at the moment, but I will put it on the to-do list. Good idea!
Thanks, Carl

Re: Hard Drive Format for DCP Delivery?

Carsten posted this, but I accidentally deleted in when moderating it! Thanks Carsten! Carl - a lot of DCI servers run outdated kernels, or OS's in general, for reliability reasons. Some even still run XP. Doremis e.g. still run kernel 2.6.18 to my knowledge. Most of these older kernels do not suppo...

Re: Batch converter ?

Hi, There's a bug with the shortcuts that I haven't tracked down yet (the batch converter shortcut starts the normal DCP-o-matic). If you go into "Program Files" and then DCP-o-matic and then bin you should hopefully find the batch converter .exe, and if you run that the batch converter sh...

Re: DCP-O-Matic crashes when generating KDM

Hi,

If you are having problems with KDM creation please try the test version from here:

as there have been significant fixes. Do post if you still have problems with that version.
Thanks!

Re: Hard Drive Format for DCP Delivery?

I know part of the bottleneck is the massive amount of small files (135K+) It sounds like you are copying the whole "film" directory that DCP-o-matic creates. That does indeed have a lot of small files. However, the only bit that the theatre needs is the actual DCP. See: http://dcpomatic....

Re: Creating a 5.1 DCP

QuickTime (and other) files can have multiple "streams" of audio, each of which can contain 1 or more channels. The problem that the original poster is talking about is that DCP-o-matic cannot merge multiple single-channel streams into one DCP (yet). It should be fine with a single multipl...

Re: Hard Drive Format for DCP Delivery?

Hi Scott,

My understanding is that ext2 is the only format that is guaranteed to work, and indeed it seems to be the format that the Big Distributors use.

Re: Video working with DVD-o-matic but not with DCP-o-matic

Hi,

What platform are you using (Windows? OS X?)? Can you tell me the precise error message? What is the filename of the video? Can you post the "log" file from inside the film's directory?

Thanks.

Re: Creating a 5.1 DCP

For reference, we have discussed this elsewhere and it is a missing feature in DCP-o-matic which I will work on.
