FEATURE REQUEST: Supplemental Packages

Post by ainsophaur » Fri Sep 06, 2019 9:01 pm

I would love to see a feature added that allows you to add supplemental packages to existing DCPs so that you can replace bad frames or shots or add trailers or logos to the front of your movie.

Hmm, that would work with the OV/VF approach. Yeah, replacing individual frames, that might be clumsy, but it would work.

You can e.g. create a new project, add an existing DCP, refer to it as OV (checkbox for both video and audio) - then add other content at the beginning or ending. When you create this DCP, only the new content will be compiled into this VF. The rest will be referenced from the OV file.

Wouldn't it force you to re-encode if it's encrypted?

No, you can make a VF for an encrypted DCP if you get a DKDM for it, both with or without re-encoding. The key for the original encrypted content is conveyed to the new KDM, and even with edits will work just the same as for the OV.
