As suggested by Joris here`s a new thread on smooth playback because the problem is a bad one and makes Resolume untenable for certain gigs that require even simple scrolls. Ok I understand the potential problem with processing - this obviously not that, as the cpu is hardly dented and it happens on a single layer even down to 640 sized compositions. I understand there is a potential problem with FPS and monitor projector frequencies, but even with everything set to 60KHZ and a 60FPS DXV encoded video it still occurs. The glitch seems to be every four or five seconds, just as Joris suggests as if the maths need to occasionally catch up and resync. Presumeably this relates to a buffer size before it does this. He also suggests that a math mismatch might give two frames 2kz and the third 3khz, but the glitch I see is bigger and more infrequent. I don`t know if this is a truly a Resolume problem or a Quicktime problem or a general problem, but whatever, it means that despite all the wonderful tricks and layers and effects and magic, to scroll a nice simple graphic or logo across the screen looks very unpro indeed. The show i`m working on at the moment has a lot of this. A lot of animation from pictures, maps, text, cutouts. I`m having to seriously look at other ways to do this show because i can`t do a simple smooth scroll of a graphic across the screen.
It would be great to know what you guys are thinking about it all, as you are obviously aware of the problem from the previous and by the end, well jumbled thread. Is this what you would get from spending 8K on a Hippo Laptop - smooth scrolling! Resolume can do all the rest, mapping and all, but it`s a killer not being able to do smooth scrolls ------------------ any illumination would be gratefully received, showtime very soon! JM
