First time Millumin user here.
I'm having a little trouble with videos not playing back well on this high powered machine I've hired!
Mac Pro 5.1 spec:
OS: 11.4 Big Sur
Processor: 3 Ghz 8-core Intel Xeon E5
Memory 32GB 1866 Mhz DDR3
Graphics: AMD FirePro D700 6GB
I've got two 4:3 projectors hooked up, canvas is 3200 x 1200.
Weirdly the Lightware switch I'm going through is setup with a 50Hz EDID but mac won't let me choose anything but 60Hz and the projectors are getting 59.59Hz.
Layer stack is something like this always:
Top layer black PNG masked to fit the edges of this spiked screen I've got.
Next layers (approx 4) playing back 3200x1200 videos rendered ProRes4444 with alpha or ProRes422 without @25fps. The layers have masks on to cover appropriate sections of this spikey canvas screen.
I have a lot of media in the library as we're creating the show. I'll probably be removing most once we're set.
I've found that playback drops to 6-8fps when playing 3 layers together and key framing speed. As in, pause two layers and play the other one.
I've tried programming this in timeline and dashboard and can't seem to get a good smooth playback.
Thank you so much! Quick replies would be helpful as the show opens on Saturday the 26th of June and if I can't get it working in next day or so I'll have to swap to another playback option :(
