Version 2.17.3 audio content 5.1 mapping appears not available

Post by AFTRS »

Hi,

In earlier versions of DCPoMatic it was possible to preview the 5.1 audio mapping like it still says in the manual. (see attachment 1)
The current version concerns me as it only shows what appears to be either:

(i) (attachment 2 - when set to Mid Side decoder)

(ii) (attachment 3 - when set to Stereo to 5.1 Up Mixer A)

My source file is a ProResHQ with 6 audio channels (L,R, C,LFE,Ls, Rs)

Why can I no longer see the 5.1 mapping?
Otherwise what setting should I be using to create a 5.1 DCP (There's only 3: Mid Side decoder, Stereo to 5.1 Up Mixer A, Stereo to 5.1 Up Mixer B)?

Thanks in advance

PS I'm on a MAC

It should look exactly the same in straight 5.1 (or any other mapping) when any upmixer is disabled/unselected.
I guess there are some screenshots missing?

I just checked it in 2.17.4, and it looks okay. There was an issue with audio processor prefs recently - maybe something got stuck in your prefs?

Hi Carsten,

Thanks for the reply.
Well I definitely don't have the old 5.1 mapping. I'll try attach the other 2 screenshots again showing my only options:

If it is, as you say, an issue with audio processor preferences, how would I fix this?

Thanks
Peter

Can you show us a screenshot of your audio settings under 'DCP'? It should be set to 6ch/5.1 and processor to none.

That's the preferences issue I was talking about - normally, you should be able to set processor to 'none', then the normal matrix would reappear.

My screenshot is from 2.17.4 - you may be able to get 'none' back if you disable experimental processors in advanced prefs. Carl did fix this prefs issue, I am bit suprised it shows in 2.17.3, but maybe it was only fixed in 2.17.4?

Oh, it actually IS fixed only in 2.17.4:

Thanks Carsten,

I'll download to 2.17.4 and hopefully that will fix.
Will update this thread.

Cheers

Confirming that downloading and installing 2.17.4 has fixed the problem :)

Thanks for your help
