    Screen Recording Software for Linux - anything decent
    posted by  on Aug. 4, 2014, 7:15 p.m.

    Thanks. I have one of the guys looking at that now and even a really rough test has shown some ok results. Just about to sort out some parameters (screen area etc), but so far it looks promising.

     

    Cheers

    I've been known to just use mencoder on the command line.  Like all incantations involving ffmpeg, it can take a few tries to get exactly the right parameters, but it has always worked well for me.

     

    Something like here will get you started...

    Hey all,

     

    Do you guys have some suggestions about screen recording software for Linux (centos).  We have been running Recordmydesktop and Krut but have seen issues with folk here getting Siggraph presentations ready.  The main things (are also the obvious ones), frame rate / dropped frames and poor compression. 

    I am just sniffing around for something a little more robust that we could look at implementing here, any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • Remote Flame/Grade Sessions
    posted by Francisco Ernesto Lima on Aug. 5, 2014, 10:55 a.m.
    Hello to all!

    What are you guys using for Remote Flame/Grade sessions?

    We've got a request to setup a Remote grading session for a client that is based in another country. There would be aDolby Professional Reference Monitor PRM-4220on both ends.

    I know some Post houses that are are streaming the signal using H264 Encoders/Decoders.

    I was wondering which solutions you guys are using and what are the pros and cons that you have found.

    Best Rgds!

  • Dailies transcoding box
    posted by Gareth Havard on Aug. 5, 2014, 5:45 p.m.
    Hi All, I'm trying to build a dailies transcoding box, focussing on processing Red Epic-X Dragon 6K (BIG job looming in a few weeks). As this new 6K leaves my old Red Rocket card redundant, I'm throwing some capex at the problem, but its all theory until my feature service job starts rolling and the log jam is imminent! Is anyone experienced in throwing GPUs at the problem rather than investing in a Rocket X? I may have an Alexa job after this so want to stay within budget of Rocket but keep it camera agnostics. I'm in south africa so orders take long to get to me and/or limited by choice. I've currently thrown a Z820, 16GB ram, 2 x Nvidia K4000 cards and a fibre attached JBOD with about 300MBps read speed. I've got Epic 5K footage to play with and I'm getting perfect realtime playback at 1/2 quality in CineXpro, realtime exports to 1500Kbps H.264 at 1/4 quality @ 720p... Test file is around 16GB for 3 mins... GPUs are both under 50% load, ram isn't maxing out, 24cores of cpu are working VERY hard. I can't remember the processor specs, but its pretty good I think, either way I'm stuck with them looking for some advise on pushing performance. I can't keep this system config as I've juggled units in my facility... I've got a couple of Asus GeForce GTX 780 6GB on hold for a possible permanent solution... Currently playing with CineX as above, we have Assimilate Scratch licences floating around, Resolve is a possibility... Would love some insight into the experience of others? Cheers, Gareth.

    posted by Ken Spickler on Aug. 7, 2014, 2:25 p.m.
    What is everyone using for 4K monitoring? I've seen various solutions ranging from $600 consumer TV's from Seiki (which have crappy black levels, by the way), up to $20K pro displays from Sony. Even Dell's range in price from $700 up to $3,000. I've tried Dell's 24" UHD option, but it seems to have some limitations on supported frame rates.

    Thanks,

    Thunderbolt Cable ... Extender ideas to hook up 2nd monitor
    posted by Tommy Asbee on Aug. 11, 2014, 4:55 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hey there,

    Wanted to see what others are doing or see if anyone has any suggestions.

    I have new Trashcan MacPros for my edit bays with 2 thunderbolt monitors.

    ISSUE: 2nd monitor cord is not long enough to reach trashcan.  

    FROM what I can tell there is NO thunderbolt extender.

    OTHERS SUGGESTED: Running longer Thunderbolt cable to an open thunderbolt port on the monitor.  BUT you will lose the ability for power over USB.

    If you connect to the "TB port" instead of the "pigtale", then as you state... it will work. Since the pigtale is unpowered, you cannot attach a "bus powered" TB device, but you can attach a "self powered" TB device. From that point forward... you can connect a "bus powered" TB device further down the chain. Each powered device seems to provide the power to the downsteam chain.



    Does anyone have any thoughts/ suggestions.


    Thanks,
    -Tommy

    FROM what I can tell there is NO thunderbolt extender.

    OTHERS SUGGESTED: Running longer Thunderbolt cable to an open thunderbolt port on the monitor.  BUT you will lose the ability for power over USB.

    If you connect to the "TB port" instead of the "pigtale", then as you state... it will work. Since the pigtale is unpowered, you cannot attach a "bus powered" TB device, but you can attach a "self powered" TB device. From that point forward... you can connect a "bus powered" TB device further down the chain. Each powered device seems to provide the power to the downsteam chain.



    Does anyone have any thoughts/ suggestions.


    Thanks,

    Thunderbolt Cable ... Extender ideas to hook up 2nd monitor
    posted by Brian Krusic on Aug. 11, 2014, 5 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Same here.  We simply place the station close to the respective monitors.

    Also be aware of the 3 TB buses on the Mac.

    Use 1 bus for displays, and other 2 accordingly other stuff like TB-to-PCIe unit etc...

    Hey there,

    Wanted to see what others are doing or see if anyone has any suggestions.

    I have new Trashcan MacPros for my edit bays with 2 thunderbolt monitors.

    ISSUE: 2nd monitor cord is not long enough to reach trashcan.

    Document Management with Ipad support?
    posted by Saham Ali on Aug. 12, 2014, 11:20 a.m. (1 day ago)
    We are in the need of some sort of document management system.

    This is the current process
    • a PDF is created,
    • which then is printed,
    • data entered on printed form,
    • signed by user,
    • then re scanned to be filed.

    I would like to simply have a PDF on the iPad, that can be filled out while with the user, and then have them sign, which then saves the PDF with the signature to then be emailed, or saved to a central server location, and or print.

    Is there anything out there you guys can recommend or if have similar system in place?

  • Freelance network help..
    posted by Paul Simpson on Aug. 12, 2014, 1:30 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi network gurus,

    Realise Studio is looking for someone to help out brushing up our core network infrastructure. Ideally, it would be someone who's willing and able to set things up and then help here and there on an on-going basis.

    We run a HP procurve chassis, Juniper SSG 5 firewall, Centos DNS/DHCPD/PXE.

    The first task would be to get openvpn installed and rolled out to our remote staff.

    If anyone is interested then please contact me directly.

    Many thanks,

    Paul

    Has anyone started to deploy distros that use systemD yet? Or have experience with it regardless?

    Do you agree with this guy? https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/8/12/459

    Mac Root Certificate Store Not Trusted
    posted by Tom Salciccia on Aug. 13, 2014, 1:30 p.m. (1 day ago)

    This is a strange one. I have a user on a Mac OS X 10.8.5 machine. For some reason, every single certificate in his root certificate store is showing as not trusted.

    I've scanned for viruses, run disk repair, run permissions repair - and I've even tried manually setting "always trust" on each root (and user) certificate.

    But nothing is getting this back in order.

    Has anyone seen this before? The "geniuses" at Apple were of no use. They have escalated to "engineering" with 1 to 2 day turn around. That's certainly not acceptable, especially since this is the film's director.

    Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
