flipbooks, dailies and whatnot...

Recommended Posts

All of these suggestions are great... and quicktime is actually fairly easy to do with ffmpeg on linux. As far as I know it handles the photoJPEG codec and even H.264 (if you choose) and it's incredibly scriptable too.

So quicktimes for WIP dailies and the full framecycler for final/full res playback sounds like it could work fine. Which would mean only buying 1 license of the framecycler DDS (bonus! :)).

Thanks guys

Marc

Hi

Don't know if this is usable for the particular task, but there's a very nice OSS flipbook, called DJV, multiplatform, features are:

* Cross-platform support with versions available for Apple Mac OS X, Linux, Microsoft Windows, SGI IRIX, and Sun Solaris.

* OpenGL hardware-accelerated image processing.

* Support for floating-point and extended range images.

* Industry standard file formats including Kodak Cineon, SMPTE Digital Picture Exchange (DPX), Industrial Light & Magic OpenEXR, and Apple QuickTime.

* Movies may be played back from system memory or streamed directly from disk.

* Command line utilities for batch image processing.

Then there's like it was mentioned earlier, mplayer/mencoder, there's not much you can't do with these :)

P.S.: you might want to try a svn checkout of DJV, iirc, there was some bug with EXR, but you can find more details on the commit changelog.

Ah so your at Black Ginger now.

Why would they not sell to SA?

Import intellectual property thing or somesuch?

naa, they probably do, I was just kidding :). They don't list South Africa on their site of 'where to buy?' I'm sure if we contacted them directly then they would sell it to us.

Cheers

Just to add to the list, the upcoming Generation from Eyeon is also a great file sequence player! :)

Just installed DJV on my hp 64bit athlon laptop, with Ubuntu 8.04. Installed without a complaint and seems to be running quite nicely.

Considering the task of conversion I'm quite liking FuocoTools on linux. It's quite clever actually in that it is really just a gui of a database of mencoder and ffmpeg scripts that you can choose from. You can also assemble your own custom list of scripts.

Ihab's discussion about using ipods to view videos reminded me of MythTV, in that it could be quite useful for studio wide access to a database of material.

It's been requested (RFE 20725), and I imagine when MPlay gets some attention, it'll be pretty close to the top of the TODO list.
