I'm trying to understand the reasoning behind framerate choices, mostly because I receive so many different ones such as 30, 29.97, 25 and the one that is the most perplexing, 23.98. I know WO can play this different frame rates and filmmakers like the idea that they are matching the frame rate and stutter of old-school film (celluloid) and they will get the same look if played back at 23.98 Is it better to film at 23.98 and output playback files (HAP-Q) for WO at 30fps? Is there any real advantage to achieving a film look or is this a myth handed around? Will there be any sync issues if 23.98 fps is changed to 30 fps and played back with a separated audio file and looped over a long time in WO? What has been your experience, thoughts, and solutions for the framerate question? Thanks
Hi, First post...no one cares....lol I am controlling a Z400 machine that has a brand new build (OS, drivers, applications, etc.) and the OS has been scrubbed with the Win7 tweak list. I can load a video for testing into all three 1920x1080 outputs, create cues and the whole 9, but when I play back the video from a cue or playback from the beginning of the timeline, the video will play for 15-20 seconds and then freeze. Has anyone seen this issue? This is currently happening on two of our Z400 machines and not all 4 of them with the exact same specs and OS image. Thanks in advance, Derek Z400 Specs ATI 6870 GFX Xeon 3550 @ 3.07 16Gb RAM OS/Media on separate SSDs
Hi there, we are shooting a tv series in switzerland and want to feed our Insight 4k quad from digital projection with footage which is in ProRes 422 10 Bit UHD (4k) with 50 fps. We use the rear projection method instead of greenscrean to get real reflections in the surfaces that are infant of the projection.. So we already tried out a media server from 7th sense, but i was very unhappy with workflow, so now i want to try out whatchout an i am wondering if i could get realtime playback with good performance with our editing workstation, here are the specs: HP Z640 Workstation, CPU E5-2643 v3 3.40 GHz (2 Processor), 64.0 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X (12GB RAM), Windows 10 first question is, do you think this setup could work for 4k 50fps? Any codec suggestions(i heard pro res would´t be good for playback, maybe .tga? We want to have it as uncompressed as possible since we film from that projection and don't want to get weird artefacts.. Second question: We have Ambient Timecode which is able to give out genlock signal, so now i´m thinking about to get a new graphics card since the gtx doesn't support genlock via bnc input.. Third question: I think i would need a fast drive solution for the media, any suggestion on that? internally ssd RAID? I would be very happy for every helpful comment, i´m new here by the way thanks Stephan
Hi I'm facing a problem, which is probably workflow/user generated. I create a new task with a live video input. I fade it up from zero to e.g. 1 second, and then pause it, with a Pause action in the timeline. When I continue playback, I have placed control cue, which makes the cursor jump to zero, and the pause. The problem is when the users open the show, all the tasks are set to stop, and I know it's done so, so none of the tasks contribute to the show. Until they are activated and played out. What we see is, that when you fade up a live video signal, and the timeline is set to "stop", the fade up flickers and lags, and sometime just jump to a 100%. Is there a method, e.g. starting the fade up one second later, so you don't experience these issues, when you start up a new show? I have to mention, that when it have played out the first time, the task is set to pause at zero, and then it works fine from there. Best regards Christian
