Re: interlaced video: unpredictable quality

There are some threads on the forum on unsmooth playback. Sometimes the answer is simple as having differen refresh rates between devices, and frame alignment is not matching up perfectly. Thus you see frame jitter, 1 input frame displaying for 2 output frames, then output skipping a frame. I guess...

Re: interlaced video: unpredictable quality

I should do that..but I'm in a super hurry to finalize a setup for a show coming WE. I will resume t'shooting and provide samples sometime after that - thx for your fast response time !!! It is also quite possible that the root cause of my problems is that when using Resolume for this show (i.e. wi...

Allow per-clip fades

AFAIK, transitions between clips is set at layer level...
It would be nice to be able to have individual transitions at clip level...or did I overlook something ?

Play Specific Clip...on another layer ?

I'd like to chain playback of clip#1 on layer 1 to clip# on layer 2
Is that possible ?
I couldn't find "clip#2" in the possible "Play Specific Clip" list of clip#1....

Inventing Interlacing was a flawed workaround for the problem of giving better experience of movements to the user using the same bandwidth.
True, at that time CRT phosphor latency allowed easy deinterlacing ;-) so at that time it was a smart design decision (I'm from that generation :D )

Re: interlaced video: unpredictable quality

The new file you sent is also 25p. DXV doesn't support interlaced. Really. Indeed, the DXV doesn't say it is interlaced, arguably because it just ignores that (has no support for it). Comb edges are nice? The fields were merged when encoding, it's not Resolume who's merging the fields. Indeed, that...

Re: interlaced video: unpredictable quality

Thanks for the suggestions Actually the file I sent you was indeed progressive - sorry (resending a new one right now) I agree with your explanations; when 50i playback is 'smooth' (see discussion below), pausing playback freezes on a frame containing the two merged fields, with nice comb edges... M...

Smoke/haze/cloud effect

one more beginner question, bear with me ;-)
Is there a simple way to add a "smoke / haze" affect to a scene - I found no built-in effect to do that
My current workaround is to create a video with such an effect and layer it on top of my scene...

Re: interlaced video: unpredictable quality

Unfortunately our show uses a complex mix of hardware, including an "old" HD videomixer which is HD TV compliant, i.e. 1080i or 720p. So for fluidity (50i) and other reasons we decided to set our show using the common denominator 1080i (the PC running Avenue is not the last device in the chain). Wil...
