    Half the size of JPEG, support for up to 14 bits per component:

    http://bellard.org/bpg/bpg_spec.txt

    Could BPG replace JPEG as the "lightweight" companion to EXR for our types of applications?

    None of which would happen quickly of course.

    AJA + Premiere CC2014.1 = runaway kernel task RAM
    posted by Rob LaRose on Dec. 15, 2014, 4:25 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi folks,

    I asked before when PPro 8.1 was new.. Im still seeing an annoying number of not-enough-application-memory conditions since Premiere 8.1 on my Macs with AJA devices (Kona 3Gs, ioXTs).

    Anybody else seeing this, now that its been out for a while?

    BlackMagic UltraScope... Any good?
    posted by  on Dec. 16, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
    I'm wondering if anyone has experience with the Blackmagic Ultrascope? One of our Tektronix rasterizers stopped working and the repair bill is half the cost of a new unit so I'm looking at alternatives. Are these things worth a try?

    Thanks!

    External Thunderbolt GPU's on OSX
    posted by William Sandler on Dec. 17, 2014, 12:50 p.m.
    Anyone running this setup and have any feedback? Was thinking of turning a few MBP's we have lying around into workstations by giving them an external GPU. I haven't seem many attempts at external GPU's over TB on OSX, which surprises me because the lack of CUDA on the garbage cans.

    https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/277/30867 One of the few examples I found of someone trying it.

    Hi,

    Ive noticed that within the past couple years ppl have been calling and claiming to have spoken to me days earlier.

    Of course its a farce but I usually avoid the call or sometimes call em on it.

    My advise to sales ppl on this forum; honesty is the best policy as that tactic guarantees a No, from me %100.

    I realize sales is tough but guess what, making money in general is tough.

  • mentalray for maya on centos
    posted by Kym Watts on Dec. 17, 2014, 5:55 p.m.

    Hi There,

     

    We are running into problems trying to get the licensing working with the mayatomr on out centos render nodes.

    running : /usr/autodesk/maya2014-x64/bin/Render -r mr -s 1 -e 1 -b 1 -v 6 /tmp/test/ball_mr.ma

    errors with:

    maya: License was not obtained

    License method:
    environment variable MAYA_LICENSE_METHOD='network'

    Product choice:
    environment variable MAYA_LICENSE='657e1'

    License file override:
    environment variable MAYA_ALT_EN is not set

     

    I know that mayabatch mode and maya software renderer work correctly, but when we try to render with mentalray it fails.

    we are running maya2014 sp3, on CentOS release 6.5 (Final)

     

    I know that the "/var/opt/Autodesk/Adlm/Maya2014/MayaConfig.pit" was created correctly from our licensing info.

     

    Please let me know if there is anymore information i can provide.

     

    Cheers

    Kym
