issues with file resolution 1920x4320

Hi,

 

I'm currently working on a project that requires me to fire files 1920px wide and 4320px high.

Sad point is that my Watchout setup recognizes the file, shows a thumbnail, but will not reproduce the clip when thrown onto a stage.

 

The system is WO5 on a Core i7, >8Gb RAM, SSDs, Eyefinity 6-head GPU. The attached displays are 1920x1080px each, stacked.

 

We've been toying around with ProRes 422 and h.264 Layer 5.1, but the result stays the same. The same file at 960x2160px will run fine....

 

Any thoughts?

 

Best

At 4 times 1080p resolution, simply saying i7 ain't good enough, not all i7 series computers are up to such a decoding task.

I doubt any PC is capable of successfully playing back smoothly 1920x4320 with ProRes encoding / software decoding.

 

For the equivalent of four or more HD streams, in addition your hi-speed SSD (500 MB/s or more),

it is likely an i7 six-core Extreme Edition cpu with triple or quad channel memory would be required.

 

What is the frame rate of the clips? Interlaced or progressive?

Save your h.264 as an mp4 as described in Dataton AB's document: WATCHOUT - Codecs for stable WATCHOUT playback.pdf

 

With other codecs, I have occasionally seen strange results with large movies where the vertical resolution exceeds the horizontal resolution.

Have your tried encoding it as a 4320 wide x 1920 high and rotating it in WATCHOUT?
