Re: Unable to retrieve device mix format

I assume this has to do with audio playback. Is there anything special about your machine and it's audio interface? Do you know what type of audio interface is used on this system?

Re: Creating my first DKDM for Distribution

Exactly. There is no technical difference between a KDM and a DKDM. Just that the latter is INTENDED for distribution, not for screening. The local DKDM generation in DCP-o-matic menu is needed if you want to create additional KDMs for your DCP later when your project file/DCP is no longer on your s...

Re: crop issue 1:1,90

This may be a player issue only. Open the video MXF in VLC, cue to a suitable frame of the video (bright/signal on all sides), create a video snapshot ('Video' menu). Inspect the resulting frame. This will show you exactly what is in the MXF. What is your source active signal resolution? I see you a...

Re: Creating my first DKDM for Distribution

Keep in mind, it is not sufficient to create a DKDM for your own DCP-o-matic installation with the quick menu options. You need to inquire a certificate from the distributor, create a screen entry in DCP-o-matic, and issue a KDM towards that screen - which can be used as a DKDM by their KDM manageme...

Re: Validation Error on Frame size

We have a lot of reports for classic Doremi (Dolphin boards) servers failing well below the official specs. It is not a good idea to use the maximum allowed values. A while ago, I experienced one of these Doremi crashes myself with a documentary created at 235MBit/s (my personal limit until that pro...

Re: 2.17:1 aspect ratio

I don't think so. Only if there is some letterboxing in the source file.
I also opted successfully to include an 'unscaled' option that would allow to center lower res footage on screen. But, only center, no special layouts.

Re: 2.17:1 aspect ratio

If the masking can only come down from the top - isn't there a projector preset able to deal with that (vertical shift down)? I once did a DCP with top-only padding in order to place subtitles there. However, I used a letterboxed scope source file for it, so I only cropped away the bottom letterboxi...
