In Topic: Xpresso User Data to Control Save As Name

26 January 2015 - 06:48 PM

This looks to work exactly how Id like it to, but I must be doing something wrong. I enter the new file name and path, but it doesn't update in the render settings. Admittedly I have very limited experience with Xpresso, so theres that to take into consideration.

I find Bare Feats the be one of the best resources for Mac Pro video card info... might want to check that site fisrt






Last year I bought a GTX 780 because of info there. At the time it was the fastest card that could run on a 2009-2012 Mac pro without additional power (you will need an adapter to go from 6 pin to 8 pin, though). I'm very happy with it. All the gnu acceleration in CC and in Resolve are tremendous.

UHD is Rec2020. 


Everything for preview output (ie: what the client sees) should be set up to work in the color space of the delivery format, regardless of our feelings on the spec. Other spaces are good for while working (desktop monitors). 



All in all, we can only do our best to try to see what the couch potato will see. Everyone likes cranking their home set's settings to weird values so it doesn't matter anyway. This Technicolor initiative is appealing to me since they are trying to remove that nonsense from consumer's control. Then, maybe NTSC can stand for something other than 'Not The Same Color'.  :P



Ahh, so it is. The article I read made it sound like ITU was still waffling on whether or not they should go forward with the spec. Learn something new every day.



I hear you on the unmanageable aspects of delivery (the end user) but I don't think we should cut ourselves off at the knees because some people (maybe MOST people) won't even notice. I don't think rolling out a certification based on a color space that is about to be obsolete is good for anyone. Instead of pulling the greyhair with the 4:3 vhf set into the 21st century we keep coming up with ways to keep things shitty. Thats my 2 cents.

"Note:  Content must be created in rec. 709 (movies/videos) or sRGB D65 (photos/web page)format for color accuracy."



Is that really a step forward? Neither of those color spaces are super awesome. I feel like this is more lipstick on a pig. Wheres the good stuff? Rec2020 (if it ever gets approved?) or even Adobe RGB or some other future shit that the brilliant folks out there are working on.

completely off topic: I thought video links automatically embedded themselves now? is it just vimeo?
