We have always noted this flash-frame, "glitch" problem at start of playback, and just thought it was a quirk expected in Resolume Arena, as it used its resources to 'get up to speed' in rolling clips in perfect sync, simultaneously – what Resolume calls "Layers." Since no one else said anything here we just learned to live with it during out test trials.
We've worked around it by inserting 1 second of BLACK/SILENCE on anything we sent to Resolume. When rolling the 'Column,' we have the audio mixer muted and video switcher on BLACK, so the classroom sees and suspects nothing. A second later, we fade up the VIDEO/AUDIO. When we move to the next set of clips in another column, we repeat this process.
It would be nice for this 'BUG' to be squashed. The technical workflow is below to help.
We have used Resolume exclusively to very quickly cue and play multiple camera angles of movie scenes (which ALL have audio), and also to cue alternate scenes – so we can do 5~8 angles or takes playing at the same time to different projectors and even combined on one screen, so we have always used it with H.264 Quicktime .mov cliips compressed from Adobe Media Encoder.
The original files come from Avid Media Composer/Symphony
, and are either in AVCIntra 100
(10-bit, 4:2:2 color sample, 100Mbps), Avid DNxHD 220x
(10-bit, 4:2:2 color sample, 220 Mbs) or even 1:1, 100% Uncompressed 1080p
(10-bit, 4:2:2 color sample, up to 3.0 Gbps).
Audio is usually 48KHz, @ 16 or 24-bit, 8-channel for HD 1080/720p; and 16~20-bit, 4-channel for SD: Standard Definition 720x486 (SMPTE "D1"/Digital Betacam/D5) or 720x480 (DV/DVD). For Widescreen SD converted from HD, we are in ED: Extended or Enhanced Definition: 864x486, which is a DVD spec that makes TV sets automatically display anamorphic 4:3 in widescreen 16:9.
We have tried taking the 1:1 Uncompressed HD, DNxHD 220x, or AVCIntra 100 files and compressing them using Resolume's own codec, but have had issues (and it is slower to bake clips than Media Encoder), so I just place all the very quick exports from Avid Media Composer/Symphony into Adobe Media Encoder and let them bake H.264 (8-bit, 4:2:0 color, avg 35~50 Mbps) at about 85% picture quality. We then send these .mov files to Resolume Arena.
Reach out to me if I can be of any assistance to help, as always. Thank you!

When i start a clip which has an audio layer , it plays 5 frames and then restarts from frame 0 to fully play out.
If i strip the audio layer , the clip just starts without this 'stutter' . Happens in every clip , old comp , new comp , whatever layer.
I never had this issue before ?
Updated to latest Nvidia drivers & Resolume Arena 6 version , running on win7 x64 from m2 ssd.
What could it be ..
