Need help fixing non smooth video.
We're using three projectors mapped to three walls on stage.
I send my videos from Qlab using three syphon sources in Millumin to be able to warp the video better.
We've got a Macpro (early 2008 since Apple can't get me their new one yet....)
SSD drive,14 GB RAM, two video cards with 4 out in total including the local monitor.
I'm using Qlab3 as my playback source.
When I play my videos directly from Qlab to the projectors the videos look fine. So I think the computer is OK.
But since I need more warping than Qlab surfaces can give me I use Syphon into Millumin.
We've managed to map three syphon sources nicely using still pictures.
We've done quite a lot of warping and have also resized and turned two of the projectors 90* since they are hanging on their side to get better coverage.
Now the videos are "jumpy" through Millumin. It makes no difference if we use a Syphon source or if we put them directly in the dashboard in Millumin.
I've tried different codecs - some are a little better, but not as smooth as any of them run i Qlab. (Again - videos from Qlab to all three projectors look fine.)
I have not tried the Hap codec, since I'm running in 64 bit mode.
Could anyone please help me to find my "bottleneck". Is it the warping? Is it the projector adjustments? Should we go 32bit and Hap codec?
I'm looking for a workaround.....
Thank you very much and happy new year!
