Post-processing Workflow / Re: Vegas Pro - What workflow do people use?
« Last post by Kharak on October 25, 2020, 01:04:49 PM »
I have never rendered cineform to a lower res than HD. But i have rendered to every weird ratio and resolution above HD and it always played nicely (except the 8k ones).

Cineform should be resolution agnostic unlike DNxHD, but apparently it has quirks with < HD res.

As you know, Resolve gets its power from the Gpu and all the Decoding is done by the GPU.

How does a dng sequence play for you in resolve?
But while correcting, you worked with a larger color range...

Thank you for pointing me into the right direction, the benefit of working in a larger color space is widely discussed all over the internet and I think I know now a bit more than before. The only thing I am unable to find is a conversion LUT from ACES AP0 to Rec.709, so the colors are not off in the end, but I'm sure a little bit more research will do the trick!

@timbytheriver: Quicktime can't playback those files at all, same for VLC. The only application which shows an image is Resolve, so the codec support seems to come with Resolve. But no idea what exactly Resolve does here - same for ffmpeg. Is there any way to make the tags and metadata visible? I just see this with MediaInfo:

Edit: one funny thing is: if I resize to a width of 1920 or 3840 pixels, MPV player is able to show the 10bit and the 12bit clip. Color is identical in both and identical to MLVApp.

Agree with @Kharak that basic Cineform 1080p should always play like butter as it was designed for lower powered systems I believe (apart from the Film Scan flavours!) If in Mac, there used to be a system preference pane that controlled certain codec functions. Might check there if appropriate?

Re QT gamma shifts in Resolve/Mac read this thread on the Blackmagic Forum. The definitive answer:  :D

I just tried editing as well, ie logged in OK.

Could edit, but not save.

I got this error message:

Security Token did not match. Possible CSRF attack.

Wanted to edit/clarify the ML DoF section.

@Kharak: thank you for the help. I exported also in lowest quality setting and got no realtime playback. There is just OpenCL available, because I don't have a graphics card. But why a GPU is needed to just playback a FHD video with CineForm? With ProRes, I can playback a 4K file on this machine.
Both files (10 and 12bit) were exported with identical quality settings, and with identical input data, from MLVApp. Only the 12bit/10bit setting was different. You could test yourself also with the latest ffmpeg executable and any video file.
Just your nagging forum member!

1): Via Canon firmware upgrade.
2): Yes, there is a custom build for 2.0.3.
      But newest developments are for 2.0.2 and have not been ported to 2.0.3.

Hi People.
 Im pretty new to ML. Never installed in any camera.
I´ve bought a EOS M to test. But it came with 2.0.3 and I understand theres no build for that FW.
So, I wanted to bother, and ask for guidance.

1. Is there a way to downgrade to 2.0.2?
2. Is there some sort of way to install the ML in 2.0.3?

Thanks in advance for your help.
My goal is to install that too in a 6D, but just after test on EOS M.
Thanks for any possible help!
