supported file types

Post by babipsylon »

hi

I don't seem to find a list of supported file types. Avi should work though, right? For some reason, when I drag and drop a .avi clip onto a clip slot, nothing happens. I seem to be able to release it, but it won't load, no title is shown, etc. Could this be a codex problem? How do I desinstall like a k-lite codec pack and install the correct pack? Using windows 7 now.

cheers, thanks

babi

Resolume should be using .MOV with the DXV3 codec.

It runs poorly with avi and isn't designed for those files.

We have a whole chapter dedicated to file formats and codec advice in the manual: https://resolume.com/manual/en/r5/optimising

Oops, missed that, thanks! However, in mpeg streamclip, I can't seem to select the dvx codec when I choose Quicktime .mov as output. Is that correct? I can convert files one by one, but... obviously bad for the workflow.

Nevermind, I think I found it, under different formats... .

HELP please. I mainly use resolume to playback videos for events or concerts and not really for VJing. My concern is that using DXV format takes a huge chunk of space. I've already used MOV-H.264 a few times and seemed to work fine until I came across DXV and it was said to be the optimal codec to use. Also it wqas suggested that I use DXV rather than DXV3 (what is the difference... help on this please). I was thinking that, won't the high file size of the files affect performance of resolume as to use H.264 which consumes less space? Would appreciate your insights. Thanks!

Hi awon1028,
The larger file sizes mean that the video files are un-compressed.
The more compressed the video files are (smaller file size), ie. h.264, The more the system has to work to decompress these files.
That's why the DXV and DXV3 (newer version) work better for system optimization. It takes less work and effort on the system to play them. BUT, it takes up more storage space.
With USB3 SSD being cheaper these day's, I'd suggest investing in a Samsung T3 SSD and not worry about the space.

Hope this makes sense.

Thanks for the reply dinga! Makes sense. I've been using DXV and not DXV3, what is the difference between the two? Basically, I use resolume to playback video requirements for events and concerts. So not really as a "VJing" tool. Thanks again bro!
