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...

Re: Error when open a project

DCP-o-matic looks up that file from drive 'N:' Ist that drive/volume currently available/connected to the computer? My first guess would be that the file/path is no longer available/has been unplugged. Second guess is that something happened to the file - erased, shifted, renamed, recreated, what ev...

Re: Info LUFS for cinema

It's most certainly no problem to push it +3dB towards -18LUFS or so.

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Okay, I'll check this on our servers, but in that case, I'd say leave it as it is? Or offer simple up/down buttons?

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

A bit of a trouble is that the whole cinema industry has come to a halt for more than a year now. As DCPs can not be used for anything else than cinema playback, there is just not much testing going on currently. Will take a while to pick up pace again. What I did with Combiner so far did work as ex...

Re: Info LUFS for cinema

The LUFS calculation in DCP-o-matic is meant to be 'overall'. You shouldn't count on that single number only for long features (no one has found a solid method to evaluate loudness for full feature length). But for ads, trailer, shorts, that number does help. From what I see in your screen shot, it ...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

It's hard to think of a technical explanation how audio could actually become louder. Because combiner should only copy the original media assets, not change anything in them. The original DCPs and references should stay completely intact. That said, I haven't done much testing around combining OVs ...

Re: Combiner, Player and Disc Writer feedback/suggestions

Oops, sorry, of course it can be multiple PKLs, I mixed that with Assetmap. It's a mixed bag and every studio or mastering facility does it their own way. And even some of the big boys manage to create a complete mess. https://isdcf.com/papers/ISDCF-Doc3-Delivery-Recs.pdf https://isdcf.com/papers/IS...
