    Workflowers at NAB, get a free wf_x license!
    posted by Cedric Lejeune on April 2, 2014, 3:40 p.m.
    Hi,

    NAB is around the corner and at Workflowers and CPGP we would like to talk about our latest news:
     
    You might know our wf_x plugins for  Autodesk Lustre are used by studios like Technicolor, Efilm, Cinepostproduction, Universal. We've just added a new clone feature in QuickComp. And Crisp is surely the best way to have your 4K look like 4K!

    They are now available on a per week or per month rental basis, as well as standalone and site licenses. Check them up there: http://www.cpgp.nu/wfx_overview/
     
    Also we have a drawing at NAB next week for a full license of wf_x, send us your hostid and get a 1 month free license for them and this gets you in! Please send your hostid to support@cpgp.nu 

    I will drive 2 color management workshops after NAB in LA, one generic over 1 day at Roush Media in Burbank:
    The second one will be Autodesk Flame/Smoke/Lustre centric in the Venice office
     
    Please check the whole set of Workflowers training courses here. Some other classes will happen later this year in other spots on the globe, to be announced on the WorkflowersInternational Colorist AcademyFacebookTwitter channels.

    OurRPS, remote production supportservice is picking up. Lately we've setup remotely the color processing for Flame and Lustre on a F55 project, checked some config on Scratch and setup a EXR workflow between Smoke on Mac and Nuke. Minimum costs, very fast, we can do a lot that way.

    Something our team has been working on also is MWM, it's an amazing interactive real time tool for video mapping, with unlimited number of live video inputs, outputs (each has its own independent lens distorsion) and control devices. Check it out at: http://insidinc.com
     
    Remember if you have special request for coding we are specialists in highly optimized graphics processing code using state of the art technologies for both CPU and GPU.
     
    Don't hesitate to contact us about your projects and for those who are going to NAB, let's catch up in Vegas!
     
    Cedric

    media servers with GPU chassis options
    posted by Matt Daly on April 2, 2014, 6:40 p.m.
    Sorta OT, but perhaps someone knows...

    I am looking for an embedded chassis, small and rugged, that can hold an motherboard with a full size/full power GPU. It is for the type of system that would be hanging off the back of a large monitor in a digital signage system. The problem is, those are great, but cannot hold a Quadro 5000/6000. I am considering a 1U GPU server from supermicro, but I am concerned it will be really loud, and I am not sure how well it will cool in a non-datacenter location. Something like that would also have to be mounted flush to the monitor, in this case, it would be portrait mode, so it would throwing heat downward (or I guess upward)

    Oh, and while I have your attention, I am also looking (a different project) for a rack mount chassis that has a built in connector strain relief, i.e., the motherboard is set within the chassis and cables can come out of the chassis in a single bundle. This is for rugged rock and roll touring use. The green hippo line of media servers has a configuration like this, sort of.

    Any ideas? Or I should ask - anyone have a connection to a custom chassis builder interested in small runs?

  • 04/02/14--23:30: Autodesk Flame 2014 SP2
  • Autodesk Flame 2014 SP2
    posted by Jathavan Sriram on April 3, 2014, 2:30 a.m.
    Hi everyone,
    we are currently thinking of moving to Autodesk Flame 2014 SP2. How stable is it?

    Currently we are sticking with Flame 2013 Ext2 SP3. As most Autodesk clients we had maany problems with the 2013 release. Stability, export, speed issues. En plus
    last year the main vendor in Germany "dreamwalks" went bankrupt and also (from what was rumored) did some shady license things.

    Are you using Flame 2014 SP2 already in your facility? Is it worth the hassle/change? Or rather wait after NAB for a more stable release?

    Thank you and cheers

    posted by Chris Hyman on April 3, 2014, 4:55 a.m.
    Post NAB will give us 2015 and I doubt anymore releases of 2014.

    There was a posting on flame news over stability and the consensus was throw lots of memory (96GB) at the system and most stability/export issues go away.

    No idea if this is true as may clients I look after have not moved upto AE yet.

    Are you aware of anyone using Krita in the pipeline? Is it there as a PS replacement, pain tool or both?

    I was looking at Krita Sketch today on linux. While its not Autodesk quality in looks, functionally it seems good to go. I plugged in a wacom 5 tablet and was creating inspirational works of art in seconds..

    Hello everyone,
    we are thinking about buying a new switch for connecting our workstations (1GigE Imacs and a few 10GigE HPs). Our storage is currently connected over 10GigE to our switch.

    We ran into some serious TCP/IP congestion problems because of the asymmetric speeds of
    fast storage server vs. slow connected clients. Our switch couldn't handle the congestion situations very well and started dropping packages, which ultimately lead on imacs to have wonderful 100MByte/s writes to the server but embarassing 10MByte/s read from the server (nfs).

    We want to buy the Arista 7048T switch (its a Store - Forward switch).

    Does anyone have some experience with this switch or the brand Arista in particular?

    We mostly run Avids (offline editing), Nuke, After Effects from the Imac client machines.

    Thank you for any insight !

    Cheers
    Jatha

    Just for the record, are you ably to say what switch are you currently experiencing issues with?

    Cheers

    syncing between a NAS on a subnet and central file server
    posted by Louai Abu-Osba on April 9, 2014, 1:05 p.m.
    Problem network inthis office is windows based, and it's not fast enough, with bad cabling that can't be replaced. IT has agreed to set up subnets with NAS and switches for each studio island (essentially a group of ~10 artists working on their own project). Is there any software that works like a cache that could sit on the nas, but fails over to the central file server and doesn't have awful sync issues? I really don't want these things to be silos off data that need to be backed up. A cheaper diy version of the Avere stuff is basically what I'm looking for. I'm reading up on dfs-r; does this work well? Any anecdotes?

    syncing between a NAS on a subnet and central file server
    posted by Greg Whynott on April 9, 2014, 1:35 p.m.
    I'm not aware of any DIY Avere like solution, beyond cachefs perhaps but that probably won't do it for you.

    how can a group of 10 people have a bad network which can't be replaced I"m wondering... it would cost about 100 dollars to re-cable if they are in the same general area I suspect. I wonder how can a network be so bad you are looking at adding caching solutions to it? is it thick net from the 80's or something?

    or is it the file server which is slow? The Avere is going to offer near ZERO win if in fact it is the network which is the problem. unless you buy everyone an Avere! how cool would that be....


    a group of 10 people have an IT guy, lucky them! or at least you would think. 8)

    LTO TAPES - Quality issues still?
    posted by Greg Whynott on April 9, 2014, 3 p.m.
    are there still quality issues going on with LTO5 tapes?

    on this page:
    http://www.itdevices.ca/data-media/lto-tapes/lto-5-tapes.php

    they have these for 28 dollars each.

    Fujifilm 10080 LTO-5 Tape Cartridge 1500GB/3000GB

    which seems very reasonable.
