Version 6.2.1.5
---------------------

Digilab2 2.7.4.6
Hydra 3: 3.0.8.0

Fixed Issues:
Edittool: Fixed still appearing blanks in default IMF audio file names when creating supplemental IMPs. ZD#26214
Edittool: Fixed black output when opening DCPs and the YUV default matrix was configured. DVS#2080707, ZD#24839
Edittool: Fixed combined CCs and subs in DCP packages. ZD#24380
Edittool: Fixed unnecessary rerendering of files in batch mode when 'current set reels' is used. ZD24552
Fileformats: Fixed no image being returned for 3996x2160 ProRes 4444 and XQ. DVS#2081888
Fileformats: Fixed audio in Quicktime files with uncompressed YUV data (2vuy, v210). ZD#26154 ZD#26372
Edittool: Fixed cut-off subtitle rendering. DVS#2080545
Driver: Fixed drops in 4k playback with burn-in enabled. ZD#25237
Driver: Fixed sporadic drops at start of display. ZD#25309
Fileformats: Fixed rendering of MXF LRCP files with mono audio channels. ZD#26621
Internal: Fixed potential crashes of avus. ZD#25474
Edittool: Fixed unnecessary recalculation of hash values for reused assets when a new IMP is created from a loaded IMP. ZD#26119, ZD#26313.
Edittool: Added support for XAVCIntraHD200 format. DVS#2082945
Fileformats: Fixed avus crashes when playing inconsistent DolbyVision DCPs. ZD#26744
Edittool: Added checkbox for forensic marking of auxiliary tracks (like Atmos audio). ZD#23436
Fileformats: Added support for ProRes YUV4444. ZD#26823
Fileformats: Fixed XAVC finalize incompatibility. DVS#2075117
Fileformats: Implemented a workaround for non standard compliant 3rdparty generated DPX files with odd number of pixels. DVS#2082233
Edittool: Fixed unnecessary rerendering of video in supplemental DCPs when only subtitles were changed or added. DVS#2080275, DVS#2081223, DVS#2081432, DVS#2083388
Fileformats: Added fix for unretrievable MOV clips that lead to a frozen CLIPSTER timeline. DVS#2080023, ZD#25018
Edittool: Fixed problem with the audio time stretching conversion rate shown in GUI. DVS#2077768
Fileformats: Added workaround (configurable in avus.ini) for interlaced JPEG2000 MXF files with wrong essence container UL. ZD#26618
Fileformats: Fixed Clipster Dual Stream S3D playback stutter. DVS#2078090
Edittool: Fixed interference in color checks between SDI and DisplayPort output settings. ZD#26942
Edittool: Added P3 D65 SDR color profile. DVS#2083496

The fix for ZD#26618 needs editing of avus.ini in order to work. That is necessary because enabling the workaround can trigger other problems. The workaround can be enabled by:

- Close the Clipster GUI
- open avus.ini in the Clipster folder
- search for this line: ";enable_i1_wrap_check=0"
- change it to: "enable_i1_wrap_check=1" (two changes: remove the semicolon, change the value from 0 to 1)

Change Log:

Version 6.2.0.9

------------------------

- Digilab2 2.7.4.6
- Hydra 3: 3.0.8.0 (only for CLIPSTER 6

Known Issue: LRCP J2k MXF files - Audio gets rendered as Mono.

Fixed Issues:

Fixed important metadata issue with IMF Mainlevel profiles when generating
IMPs. An update to CLIPSTER version 6.2.0.9 is highly recommended.
The JPEG2000 profile was not correctly written into the MXF header when using
the IMF Mainlevel profiles. Header value "Rsiz" was always set to 0.
BCP level profiles are not affected.
This issue could cause problems in subsequent workflows, for instance the
generation of Supplemental IMPs will cause re-rendering instead of transwrapping
the image data.

We recommend regenerating your IMF packages with IMF Mainlevel profiles,
which have been created with CLIPSTER version 6.2.0.4, by using CLIPSTER
version 6.2.0.9 or newer instead.)


Version 6.2.0.4 build 115121 - No longer available for Download, superseded by 6.2.0.9

Edittool: Fixed the limitation that only one marker could be created at any frame location. DVS #2080900, ZD #25790

- Hydra 3: 3.6.0.5 (only for CLIPSTER 6)

******************************************************************************

Please note, that both video boards need to be upgraded; the Digilab2 update needs to be done in two steps with a full power off of the system after each update. The Hydra3 update needs to be run only once. 

1. Execute digilab2up_2.6.9.2_sdi3gfix_2xboot.exe from a command line. This will be the first partial update of the Digilab2 firmware. 
2. Execute hydra3up_3.0.6.5.exe from a command line. This will be the final update of the Hydra3 firmware. 
3. Shut down (power off) the system.
4. Turn on the system. 
5. Execute digilab2up_2.6.9.2_sdi3gfix_2xboot.exe from a command line again. This will be the final update of the Digilab2 firmware. 
6. Shut down (power off) the system. 
7. Turn on the system once again. 

Should you receive an error message stating " MSCVR120.dll is missing" when attempting to update firmware, please install the Microsoft Visual Studio Software (vcredist_x86.exe) on the system. This can be found in our 6.0.0.10 distribution software under "Firmware / Tools" folder. Once installed you can proceed with the firmware update. 
See Release Note for more information including improvements/fixes.
