Digital Cinema Packages / Re: Mismatch in optional length element
« Last post by darklover on April 08, 2019, 11:21:57 AM »
If you use Filezilla to download your DCP , you have to change your
ftp program to binary transfer
1.   Open your Filezilla ftp program.
2.   Select "Edit" and click "Settings" from the drop Box.
3.   In the "Select page:" box, under "Transfers", click "File Types".
4.   In the "Default transfer type" section, select the "Binary" radio button. Click OK.

your xml files have been interpreted as text files.
But the ends of lines are under:
windows (2 bytes): CR + LF
osx: (1 byte): CR
linux: (1 byte): LF

some xml files also have bytes at first: Byte order Mark, not the text files.
Digital Cinema Packages / Mismatch in optional length element
« Last post by hdvprojection on April 04, 2019, 04:50:42 PM »
Something odd has happened twice now with two separate projects. I create a DCP, run a check on it, and all is good. This gets copied over to a shared vault, from which someone grabs it and makes thumb drive copies from it, but now it is corrupted. Normally when this has happened (and even this is rare), there is a hash size mismatch on one of the mxf files. Now, twice in as many days, the problem has been with the character count inside the CPL and PKL.

Code: [Select]

But when I open the originals and the copies to compare, the CPLs and packing lists are identical. I'm at a loss.

I'm attaching the two "versions" of the CPL. Can anyone tell me what's going on? Please and thank you.

Unfortunately, I don't have the time or energy to fight the never ending stream of spam, so the forum has been running on fumes.
General Discussion / Is dcinemaform dead?

Just wondering if everyone has simply moved on elsewhere, which is fine, but I'd like to know where they've moved to. Thanks.

What font(s) are you using?
Digital Cinema Packages / Italic text in SMPTE subtitle
« Last post by barend on November 29, 2018, 08:18:53 AM »

I've noticed that when I have italicized text in a SMPTE DCP (created using EasyDCP - with subtitle xml from Subtitle Edit) the character spacing of the italic text is horrible. I guess I should be loading a separate font for the italic lines. But I can't find good documentation on how to do this.

NeoDCP indeed states the DCP is missing character styles.

How is everyone else doing this? I've even noticed it on some commercial releases.

Just following up on this. Does anyone know why openjpeg would not be downloading and installing when I update digital cinema tools?

Code: [Select]
There were errors:
Error: openjpeg: Failed to download tarball. Try again later
Error: Failed to extract tarball at /home/ricardo/.digital_cinema_tools/.lib/openjpeg

Digital Cinema Packages / HI/VI
« Last post by hdvprojection on October 06, 2018, 12:56:38 AM »
Evidently there's been some recent ADA legal activity surrounding compliance by way of the HI/VI systems at US theaters. The theaters are falling in line, but that means the pressure will shift to content providers. It's going to be incumbent upon those of us who encode these things to make sure it's done right.

In another thread I had mentioned that OpenDCP was placing rear surrounds in channels 7 and 8, which is not what most cinema servers are expecting (those are normally HI and VI). Has anyone actually made an HI-VI DCP with OpenDCP? Can you tell me where these two fall in terms of channel placement?

Also, this is a bit more important because it would appear that at least one of the HI/VI systems out there (Dolby's Fidelio) outputs nothing if channels 7 and 8 are empty. If this is true, I think it's a bit of a black eye on them, but still, it may be truer to DCI spec than "faking" HI from the existing audio in the first six channels.

Digital Cinema Packages / Re: 25 fps interop?

25fps is an option with SMPTE DCPs. Not a commonly seen option, but an option all the same.

I retried this at work, and I think maybe I'm just a moron... not sure now if I selected Cinema 4K up above before transcode. I'll check again tonight. Thanks.
