Firmware Encode/Decode Two Firmware versions have been provided for the Hydra video board, which is responsible for JPEG2000 hardware encode/decode:
● A version with two encoders and two decoders (188.8.131.52). The version is installed on new systems by default. For existing customers this version is recommended.
● A version with four decoders and no encoder (184.108.40.206). Each version has different performance concerning J2K decode speed. For the time being, customers have to manually install the desired version,
if they want to switch between one of them. Note: In order for the Legacy mode in the DCI Delivery Tool to function properly the default version must be used!
'CPL only' was always greyed out in all 6.2 distributions.'CPL only' is now selectable again in the Digital Cinema Delivery Tool, provided the DCI phase of the loaded DCP matches the setting under
Config -> Defaults -> DCI -> DCI Phase.
The 3d-LUT checkbox in the timeline does no longer change its status during finalize.
IMF Subtitles CLIPSTER supports now the Timed Text Markup Language standard when integrating subtitles and captions into IMF delivery packages
This standard is also known as IMSC1 (Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0) issued by the W3C organization. Subtitles are delivered as TTML files (XML).
Once integrated into an IMF composition, they can be wrapped into an individual MXF track file alongside the rest of the video and audio essences and/or they can be
rendered directly into the video. When a subtitle timeline element has been added to the timeline, it can be handled just as any other timeline element (e.g. moved, cut or trimmed)
and will already have the length as determined by the MXF/XML subtitle file. Once finished with the arrangement of your composition,
the actual integration of the subtitles into the IMP is done with the IMF Delivery Tool.
To allow CLIPSTER to include the subtitles, you have to first activate the Metadata output checkbox in the Video settings page, and then enable the corresponding option.
