Re: fread error 22

+1

There must be a problem with that drive or some OS/addon software functions dealing with it in a special way (DCP-o-matic e.g. used to have problems when projects were created within active MS OneDrive folders).
Could even be antivirus software.

Re: 2x xeon 5670 seems slow

This is a dual CPU 6core + HT machine, so 2*6*2 =24 is the proper thread setting - start up task manager and you should see 24 CPU performance scales, one for every logical core. You may need to right-click on the CPU graph in order to switch to per-core display. https://youtu.be/oilyee1UUyM?t=213 N...

Re: Forced subtitles on MKV files

You probably missed activating them with the 'Use as' checkbox under the Timed text tab. That tab will only show up if captions are detected in your sourcefile. By default, captions contained in source files are never enabled automatically.

Re: fread error 22

Does Premiere still support Quicktime Codecs in Windows? I thought they abandoned Quicktime in Windows a while ago? What drive are you trying to create the DCP on - I assume your Quicktime file are on the same drive? USB? Format? Anything unusual about it? The 'no codec found for stream 2' usually i...

Re: fread error 22

So I assume you create these files with a more or less current version of Premiere on a Mac?

Re: fread error 22

Richard - are you sure you added the DPX sequence using 'Add folder' - and not by using 'Add files'? They give very different results. In general, I would advise against using DPX, since there are so many gamma/range options in DPX. You may be lucky if the application that created these DPX files us...

Re: Colour space

It's my free choice to still call it stupid, and I don't care wether the mastering facility or the director made that decision. They also created a DCP with the lowest possible resolution that way. Usually these decisions are made without full consideration of the typical screen designs in theatres....

Re: Colour space

While a full container has a near 2:1 aspect ratio, F-200 presets use cropping from 2048/1080 to 1998/999 (or, if set up incorrectly, show overshooting with full containers). F-200 presets show an 1998*999 image, not 2048/1024. If you project a full container in F-200, you will have cropping both on...

Re: Colour space

DPX has too many variables, you should better use TIFF and video levels (so you can use DCP-o-matic 2.14.x, that does not have the limited/full range option yet). If you use a 2048/1080 container, you will have cropping anyway at the cinemas, because no cinema is set up for full containers. They are...

Re: Help wanted with testing on M1 (Apple Silicon) Mac

While the M1 Macs in general certainly can perform nicely with certain optimised apps, they are currently not the best choice for DCP-o-matic DCP encoding. Certainly not as an encoding server. Of course, they do work, and if you want to buy one for other reasons as well, go ahead. But for an encodin...
