    posted by Joe Simpson on Sept. 29, 2016, 1:05 a.m. (2 days ago)

    Hello Everyone. 

    I have never had a need for a 'dailies' type system, but with the quantity of work I have been doing, I am starting to think it might be worth investigating.  I was wondering what people on this list have used for dailies type playback lists. 

    I know a little python, and would ideally like a system I could easily connect with.  There would be 2 things I hope this software could do.  The first and easier of the two would be to take a list of folders with image sequences or .mov or .mp4 files in them, and create a playlist on the fly to play those files.

    The second thing I would love would be a way to automatically update shots into a timeline that shows the shots in the edit.  Ideally replacing slugs in a timeline with the correct shot so shots can be watched in context of the edit.

    Is the obvious answer Hiero?  I have not looked closely into it, but I hear that is a good option.  Are there any other, preferrably cheaper options? Ideally would like a less expensive option.

    Thanks

    Not the Zombie Apocalypse - 8 Years of StudioSysAdmins
    posted by John Hickson on Sept. 29, 2016, 4:10 p.m. (2 days ago)

    As many of you might have seen, this week marks the 8 year anniversary of StudioSysAdmins. 2 more for the big party :)

    I would like to thank everyone for keeping things going in the community, through the lists, and on the website.

    Thanks to all our sponsors past and present that got us where we are today.

     

    Currently we have 2454 members from ~922 companies from 47 different countries!

    Better yet, 1206 Studio members working at 533 production studios in 37 countries!

    The numbers get dicey - we actually have more - but - many people do not update their profile!

    And accrording to google - we have more than double that reading and have not registered!

     

    Keep spreading the word and participating!

    Ask questions - give your opinions - and share!!!!

     

    I have been so busy for more than a year, as most of you are probably in the same boat and can imagine.

    We are planning some great stuff coming soon and hope to get more involved around the globe :)

     

    Thanks again;

    John Hickson

    40G Ethernet XL710 tweaking parameters
    posted by Ergi on Sept. 30, 2016, 3 p.m. (1 day ago)

    We got a couple of Intel XL710 40 cards  dual port and will connect a few  solaris servers  ZFS large pools to each other  no switch, we have large ZFS pools that we will deliver the performance. Basically, we want to move large data around.  Any tweaking parameters that you guys know for sure improve throughput performance at the application layer. Iperf testing should get us about 35Gbps and at the application level if we get 2-3GB/sec transfer rate we will be happy.  

    So far i know MTU 9000 will help and some send receive tcp buffers parameters. If you have any other parameters that work i would gladly test them and share results up here.

    Are you using "zfs send" to move the data? You can use mbuffer to help speed a little since zfs send tends to be "bursty". Additionally, since they're directly connected you can use netcat instead of ssh to avoid ssh overhead.

    [Los Angeles] Live demo by Gary Demos of his latest work on real-time moving image processing on Linux
    posted by Aleksey Tsalolikhin on Oct. 9, 2016, 6:20 a.m.
    Awesome meetup coming up in LA: Live demo of latest work by multiple tech Oscar winner graphics pioneer Gary Demos

    Gary Demos returns to UUASC to discuss some of the nuances of realtime moving image processing in common CPU/GPU configurations under Linux.

    After highlighting his work with various computers since the late 60's, working on the first feature film to use digital image processingWestworld, and founding DemoGraFX in the late 80's, Gary will describe how he is now using Linux for imaging software development, including some detail on commands and configurations that should be of interest to the UUASC audience.

    He will then go on to discuss additional imaging concepts and conclude with a demonstration of 1080P and 2160P decoding on his dual 22 core intel based system as we crowd around his 27" 5K 5120x2880 display.


    Studio Sysadmins welcome! :-)

    Beverages will be provided.

    Is Shielded Cat6A worth the expense for a super small post facility?
    posted by Mel Matsuoka on Oct. 11, 2016, 7:06 p.m. (1 day ago)

    My company is moving to a new facility, and we need to run Cat6A cable to 5 editing suites (4 editorial, 1 finishing/color). We'll be terminating these runs into a  SNS EVO 16-bay NAS system. 

    Here's a diagram of the new space (on the 5th floor of an 8 story office building):

    http://d.pr/i/eg1X/8eXfeu8I

    Seeing that plenum rated shielded Cat6A (as well as the requisite connectors/jacks) are significantly more expensive than unshielded Cat6A, I'm wondering if shielded cable is overkill for our particular setup? 

    Since there are only 4 people in our company, and I am the default "IT guy" simply because I am geekier than all of my other co-workers, combined, I dont want to be the guy who gets yelled at because the performance of the network becomes unreliable due to some unforseen external influence like EMI or something. 

    But on the other hand, I'm sure my boss wont be excited to hear that shielded Cat6A will cost 3x more than unshielded Cat6A. What do you think?

    posted by  on Oct. 11, 2016, 7:30 p.m. (1 day ago)
    The expense is largely due to the plenum rating on the cable, whether you go with 5E or 6A.  Thats not to say that theres not a significant price difference between the two but youre locked in to purchasing a cable that has a plenum rating due to the construction codes.

    Is Shielded Cat6A worth the expense for a super small post facility?

    Are you running GigE or 10G over copper? You won't likely see any benefit of STP with 1G unless you coil it up atop fluorescent fixtures with a bad ballast. 10G might benefit but only over longer distances.

    [Los Angeles] Live demo by Gary Demos of his latest work on real-time moving image processing on Linux
    posted by Brandon Lindauer on Oct. 13, 2016, 2:30 a.m.
    I'm confused, maybe just because it's late at night...

    Moving images? So, are we talking about video? Like processing and rendering video on Linux? 
    What's special about the 1080P demo?

    Awesome meetup coming up in LA:  Live demo of latest work by multiple tech Oscar winner graphics pioneer Gary Demos

    Gary Demos returns to UUASC to discuss some of the nuances of realtime moving image processing in common CPU/GPU configurations under Linux.

    After highlighting his work with various computers since the late 60's, working on the first feature film to use digital image processing Westworld,  and founding DemoGraFX in the late 80's, Gary will describe how he is now using Linux for imaging software development, including some detail on commands and configurations that should be of interest to the UUASC audience.

    He will then go on to discuss additional imaging concepts and conclude with a demonstration of 1080P and 2160P decoding on his dual 22 core intel based system as we crowd around his 27" 5K 5120x2880 display.

    For those of you who don't know Gary, I know him as an imaging scientist. He is well known to those familiar with the ASC technical committee, and AMPAS ACES committee. Moving pictures are what he does.

    - grant

    Sorry I can't make it tonight - no telling what professor Demos might show.

    Format for long-term archival of data?
    posted by Laurence Schuler on Oct. 14, 2016, 11:10 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi, We've been discussing a common format for long term storage of our videos. The Library of Congress recommends lossless compression using MPEG-2_442 or MPEG-2_FP with either WAV PCM or WAV BWF audio for storage, but I think they're recommendations are a few years old. What do you use for long term video storage? Have you thought about what you'll do with 4K video or greater resolutions?

    Hi all,

    Has anyone had any experience with the Qumulo core product? It's looks very interesting and "next-gen"..

    Feel free to hit me of list.

    Many thanks,

    aerender runs forever after completing
    posted by coribald on Oct. 23, 2016, 6:28 p.m. (2 days ago)

    Hey folks,

    I'm seeing some weirdness when rendering out PNG sequences with After Effects on a Deadline farm...split up into tasks of 5 frames, it's rendering out correctly - I can view the output and Deadline shows 100% for the task, the job log shows "10/23/2016 2:53:44 PM: Finished composition"...

    And it just keeps running, it won't complete. I think Deadline is just waiting on aerender to close out, but it won't. It's not consuming any CPU, doesn't seem to be writing any temp files, it's just sitting open. It's happening across all nodes and different files. Tried just manually running the aerender command and the same thing happens, I have to close out the cmd window to get it to stop.

    Has anyone run into this before? Running CC 2014 on Windows 7, Deadline 8. Any ideas appreciated!

  • 10/25/16--14:55: Maya 2017 batch
  • Maya 2017 batch
    posted by Doug Meyer on Oct. 25, 2016, 5:55 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Has anyone gotten Maya 2017 batch rendering to work reliably?

    I am getting all kinds of errors from it regardless of renderer.


    Failed to init graphics device.
    BiFrost plugin errors
    syncolor errors
    color management errors...

    etc


    I suspect these are due to a limited GPU on a render node but in admittedly limited testing it seems to work ok if i plug the command into cmd.exe manually.


    Is there a magic command to tell it to stop this GPU madness?


    Thought I'd check with you before going into the black hole of Autodesk support.


    Thanks

    Doug
