[Simon Blackledge] “No I know where the FPS is. it takes a bit for it to go from 0fps upto a constant 24
It ramps up.. every Resolve I’ve worked on does.
The clips so short.
If I do it on a longer clip it works.”
Use the loop function. 🙂

Maybe if you had them (580’s) bound with an SLI cable… Then resolve might see them as one Display card. Probably not necessary as I don’t think it would improve performance… Maybe for gaming though. 🙂

Awesome! Can the buttons be remapped? How long has this been implemented? What about the Wave?

Sounds cool. I know there are currently ways to map keyboard shortcuts as macros to tablets… How would you map software functionality (offsets/curves/etc) where no shortcuts currently exist? As I understand it BM interfaces with controllers via the resolve software itself, not via an open standard… That’s why the Tangent Hub, and Tangent iPad apps don’t currently work.

Just saw this article which should provide some additional insight:
…Also… Good to see the 580 still hanging high on the benchmarks!

Yep. Not too hard to run Windows software on a Mac these days thankfully. Mistika is Linux based, but Insight (like Mamba) is Windows, and fully functional for the most part which leads me to believe that the code base is now multi-platform for the most part. I would love to see a Windows version of Mistika that was fully functional, and much cheaper. A lot of Resolve users who already own Tangent Element Panels could move over quite easily as the hardware (panels/gpus) are quite similar. A problem is that Mistika uses DVS I/O boards. Unfortunately Mamba doesn’t support video I/O currently.

Not sure if you are aware but SGO has recently released Mamba FX, which is basically the effects engine of Mistika with an added nodal interface as a software only package. It’s priced under 300 dollars. If you enjoy pulling keys in Misitka vs Resolve you could use this software to build a custom matte to import in to resolve. Not ideal, but may be useful in tricky situations. You could also use this to get up to speed on the software (if you aren’t already), so when you do end up going with Mistika you’d have a big part of the software already learned. I think the color corrector is identical to what you’d get in Misitka too. You can even download a free evaluation version to give it a try for free!

If it’s a technical problem it would probably be on your video range settings being incorrectly configured, or a bad calibration. Maybe a problem with your blu-ray authoring is a possibility. If you’re noticing a major color shift, there is probably something severely off somewhere. In the end you should just target correctly, and understand that it’ll probably not look as good anywhere else. 🙂

[sean pollaro] “many many times. Ive done every experiment percieveable (by Me : ) no shifts happening in the pipeline. What I’m talking about is the contrast sharpness and gamma boost that HDTV’s produce. How do we compensate for that? thanks..
You can’t really, you’d just end up chasing your tail. Target a specific color space (on a good calibrated display), deliver correctly for the appropriate color space for your project. That’s it. Consumer TV’s are usually delivered so far out of spec (boosted, over saturated, over sharpened, etc.) Just so they stand out in show rooms to uneducated consumers. I don’t have very high expectations for my work when it hits peoples homes, because most people don’t care or take the time to have their TVs set correctly let alone calibrated. At least with Digital theatrical projection my work is usually pretty close to the artistic intent in that environment! …Usually. Still way better than what I’d see the days of distribution on film prints!

Thunderbolt 2 is slower than PCIE-3. I am sure that if BM sales a TB product as 4K compatible, it is. I however have no experience with it! 🙂
