Re: Arena 6 multiply blend mode fade problem

You dont want alpha to be multiplied at all right? Output should be b and not a?

Re: Arena 6 multiply blend mode fade problem

The reason why this works in v5 is that in v5 the transition's phase actually affects the layer mixer's opacity. We had to change this and turn the transition into a mixer on it's own because we have different 'kinds' of mixers that were not unitable otherwise and would've never resulted into a corr...

Re: Column Switch - Stuttering

I think there's several issues at play here. During a trigger there's quite a bit of work we have to do. First of all we have to read the frames from disk. Then we have to unpack it, upload it to the gpu and decompress it. Then when all of that is done we still need to render the frame. A large part...

Re: Column Switch - Stuttering

Are you using the DXV codec?
What is the resolution of the composition?
How many clips are in the column you're triggering?

Re: Freeze composition

What does 'frozen' mean? Just showing the last frame before you froze it? Or should it keep on playing clips but without having applied the changes you've made to effects since the moment you froze it?

Re: No 24p in Arena?

If your output monitor/projector is already 24fps there is no need to set the composition framerate to 24fps as well, the vsync will already cause rendering to be limited to 24fps. This setting can be used to limit the framerate to something even lower than the vsync interval. eg you might want to l...

Re: Resolume Avenue & Arena 6.0.7 update: Easter Bunny

it's part of a research project of mine with the goal to make resolume run fasterder when playing lots of videos. I had it enabled for release builds because i wanted to test with all optimizations enabled, it should never have been made public as it's really just a stresstest, but i forgot to remov...

Re: Connecting DMX to Arena 6 Problem

I sometimes get this message when i load someone else's config.xml, or if the network adapter is disabled. Can you change the network adapter in the dmx preferences window?

Re: Arena 6 and multithreading

If you use DXV content, all content is decoded on your videocard, there is no parallel work for your CPU, and no way to make good use of CPU multi threading. That's not really true. When compared to h264, decompression indeed does take a whole lot less time from the cpu, but it's still there. So I'...

Re: Arena 6 and multithreading

Yeah 'threads' and 'cores' are a different thing, it's confusing because they aren't always used to describe the same thing and can be interchanged with eachother. In the end we're never really interrested in how many physical cores a cpu has. What we care about is how many threads a cpu can execute...
