The Silverstack Cloud is here! And with it a lot of exciting new features to talk about. Since Pomfort released the Silverstack Cloud Beta last week, many Silverstack users have signed up for the cloud to test it out properly. In the meantime we’ve already received decent feedback on its functionalities along with some specific questions. Therefore, we decided to collect all the input that has been provided by our beta users so far, and set up a FAQ-like blog article to answer the most pressing questions here.
The setup on a film set does not need to become very complex before a video router becomes a helpful addition to the DIT cart. Typical monitors have not more than two inputs, so simply switching between two cameras and an additional reference image to be displayed on that one monitor means plugging video cables.
This article highlights how Livegrade Pro’s and Livegrade Studio’s implementation of the ASC-CDL standard impacts your work. We’ll revisit the details about the parameters and filter formula specified by ASC-CDL, discuss the different interaction types in the software, and show an example for setting up the color grading in multiple nodes.
Are you new to Silverstack Lab and curious to learn more about getting started with the software? The following article will give you a comprehensive overview of video tutorials that outline everything that’s helpful to know when starting to work with Silverstack Lab.
Everyone who copies digital media files will probably experience this at some point: You’ve successfully set up your equipment, started offloading the first files… and notice that the copy speed is much slower than you were expecting. If you are in this situation, you will probably want to understand where the slow copy speed comes from and fix it. But what’s the best way to go about this?
In order to achieve a high transcoding speed, it is important to choose the right CPU and GPU power to work with. But in which cases should you boost CPU, and when does it make sense to focus on GPU instead? Our infographic will help you find out.
Integrating a video router on a DIT cart enables flexible setups that would be hard to handle otherwise (e.g. switching 5 camera inputs at one monitor), but it also introduces a new level of complexity that needs to be managed by the DIT. When working with LiveGrade Pro, this complexity can be reduced with certain setups. In this article we outline three of them.
The article will outline why it’s important to know the performance of a hard drive before using it for backing up movie data on a film set, and evaluates different methods of determining the expected copy speeds reliably.
Additionally it will outline a few additional factors that can influence copy speeds and therefore should be kept in mind when comparing numbers.
There is more than one reason not to offload camera footage in macOS’s Finder, but besides making sure your copy is identical and secure, proper reporting possibilites rank high in the list of benefits from using a professional software to backup camera footage.
In order to work with the live camera metadata at your DIT cart, the first step is to make it available in the on-set software. To make sure you know all about the options, the following article will give you an overview of the currently possible setups and hardware configurations for capturing camera metadata with LiveGrade Pro.
