DavidPatrick Posted May 12, 2017 Report Share Posted May 12, 2017 I've been playing around with image sequence playback in WO 6 (Just upgraded to 6.1.6), and can't seem to get smooth playback. My test file is 8228 x 1200, which is admittedly pretty large. But if I make a HAP 6-chunk encode, it plays beautifully. However, I've tried a TIFF uncompressed, PNG uncompressed, and JPG sequences, and all of them drop frames significantly. Specs: Intel i7 3.6GHz 16 GB RAM 1TB m.2 NVMe SSD connected via PCIe 3.0. (Read speeds are consistently over 2.0 GB/s) nVidia P4000 card I'm sending it out across three outputs from one machine. Am I pushing beyond the limits of what Watchout can currently do? Or am I experiencing a bottleneck from somewhere? Has anyone else consistently gotten smooth playback of an image sequence in the 8k+ range? In theory since each image file, even in the TIFF version, is under 30mb, I should be under 900 mb / s @ 30fps. Which is less than half the read speeds I'm getting when I test the drive. Is my math wrong on that? Obviously HAP is the solution for now, but we're very interested in the possibilities image sequence playback offers. Thanks! dp Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
