Stuttering Image Sequence in WO 6 (TIFF HD1080/50fps) <solved>

Recommended Posts

Hi fellows,

 

I have big trouble with Image Sequences consisting of TIFF files @ HD1080/50fps without compression, within WATCHOUT 6.

 

The playback of the video proxy container is stuttering from time to time. 

Some runs are smooth, some not, regardless of the playback mode (native, loop, free run + loop).

As I see, it does not matter, if Frame Blending is active or not.

 

The project and the display engine are set to 50 Hz, just for the record.

 

 

My Hardware specs:

 

OS: MS Windows 7 Professional 64 bit (tweaked by dataton's tweaking doc)

 

MB: ASUS X99-E WS

 

CPU: Intel i7-5960X

 

GPU: AMD FirePro W7100

 

RAM: 16 GB; QuadChan

 

SSD OS: 1 x Plextor PX-G256M6e M.2 2280 SSD @ 256 GB

 

SSD WO: 1 x Intel PCI-E NVME SSD 750 @ 400 GB

 

SSD Stuff: 2 x Samsung SSD 850 Pro (1 TB) @ 1 TB/RAID 1

 

 

The Intel 750 SSD-Board is serving up to 2,1 GB/s for reading files.

So it should not be a problem of slow data handling.

It may handle one Image Sequence @ HD1080/50fps with ease, in theory.

 

The CPU is having 8 cores @ 3 GHz, should be way enough.

 

 

 

Do you have any suggestion regarding this issue?

 

 

I appreciate any advice.

 

 

Best regards and thanks in advance,

In theory, it should work. If you want to be a computer builder,

invest in the builders tools and let us know what it is doing in reality.

Not saying that something is amiss, just saying we do not know.

 

Barring that, create a minimum show that exhibits the issue,

bundle it, and send to Dataton by whatever means necessary.

 

Image sequence playback is a new feature and it appears Dataton is 

anxious to improve any issues identified. Help them out ;)

I have some new realization regarding the stutter.

 

It seams like the trouble has gone. I've found an active silent vnc service running.

After disabling and removing the service, the Image Sequences are running like a charm,

four of them simultaneous.

 

I'm keeping an eye on this, but it should be fine, for now.

 

I can't get the meaning of the "computer builder" statement,

but anyway, thank you for the reply.

 

Best regards,

wow, that is a big step from 'can not run one smoothly' to 'now running four smoothly'   ;)

 

... I can't get the meaning of the "computer builder" statement ...

 

Had you run tools that monitor performance,

you would likely have seen the interference from the hidden background task.

The professionals who build computers run such tests

to confirm their builds are performing as expected.

 

Anyway, 

OS: MS Windows 7 Professional 64 bit (tweaked by dataton's tweaking doc) ...

 

... I've found an active silent vnc service running. ...

 

Let's assume you had tuned correctly, and sometime since,

someone else added the offending software.

Whenever anamolous behavior is observed,

it is always a good idea to go back to the known good state from your tuning.

(This assumes you archived that state as outlined in the last step of the tuning guide - IMAGING PROCESS.)

The vnc service was my bad, left from some system tests for other tools.

 

The overall system performance, before launching display.exe, was perfect.

All system tests were successful and as expected, with vary tools. 

 

I'm spacy, not stupid.  :)

 

 

Let me say, I've understood the "substance" of your statement, but not the "sense".

 

Thank you for the quick replays and your time.

 

 

Best regards,
