Verify DCP Results Question

Post by bee_charmer »

Quick question.

Can I assume that if I verified my DCP in the player, and it came back with no issues or errors that everything with it is fine, and the stuttery playback, audio sync and dropped frames (even at quarter resolution) that I'm seeing in the player is not a reflection of the file but my computer's ability to play it?

I have a M2 Max 64gb ram mac studio, if that's relevant.

Thanks!

Given your machine's spec I would try to fix the player performance. Did you try enabling the "OpenGL" video display mode in the player?

I wanted to enable the OpenGL...but I couldn't figure out where/how to do so. Under "Tools" and then "System Information" a window opens that says "OpenGL version: unknown (OpenGL not enabled in DCP-o-matic)."

**EDIT**
Found it in the manual and changed it in the player, and now it runs smooth! So...can I assume now that all is well with the file?

I don't want to appear pessimistic :D but you only really know everything is fine once it plays in the cinema... but things are looking good!
