NDI Virtual Input and FFMPEG/FFplay issues

Par : DWAM
Hi !

I'd like to use Newtek NDI Virtual Input to feed FFMPEG for live encoding to other protocols but I cannot get it to run smoothly and it results in choppy or slomo video, rtbufsize errors, framedrops and cracking audio.

Here's my context :
- Windows 10 64 Bits
- FFMPEG from Zeranoe (latest stable build 4.3.1)
- NDI feeds come from vMix or OBS or NDI Connect and they all play fine everywhere except with FFMPEG (I have fine results with NDI Tools, other vMix/OBS/VLC or Zoom/Skype/WebRTC, etc... they're all working perfectly)

Here's my commandline for FFplay

> ffplay -f dshow -rtbufsize 512M -i video="NewTek NDI Video":audio="Ligne (NewTek NDI Audio)"

> the console returns "real-time buffer [NewTek NDI Video] [video input] too full or near too full (62% of size: 512000000 [rtbufsize parameter])! frame dropped!" and the playback is not good at all

I have also tried with option "-fflags nobuffer" or with a larger (insane?) values for buffer size (-rtbufsize 1024M/2048M). Also tried to specify more options (which help sometimes) like "-vcodec rawvideo" or "-video_size 1920x1080 -framerate 25" but nothing works... Even the FFPROBE utility which only analyses the input reports rtbufsize errors!

Obviously it does the same with FFMPEG so any further conversion (to SRT in my use case) is terribly bad too.

I have a lot of scripts dealing with DSHOW devices in FFMPEG, it's not always easy, but this time, I feel completely stuck. Am I missing something? Did someone managed to get NDI Virtual Input work when used as a DSHOW device in FFMPEG?

Any help appreciated! Thanks
Guillaume, aka DWAM

ATX2AT Smart Converter : l’adaptateur pour alimenter vos vieux Mac

Mon ancien collègue (et rédacteur en chef) de Canard PC Hardware, Samuel Demeulemeester, est un fou d’électronique, et il fabrique des trucs. Et parfois, des trucs intéressants, comme l’ATX2AT Smart Converter. Et malgré son nom, il fonctionne avec de vieux Mac.

Avant de commencer, il faut être clair : j’ai acheté l’adaptateur sur Kickstarter, comme n’importe qui. Samuel m’a juste fourni un câble pour alimenter un vieux Mac (un LC III), avec en plus une petite surprise : il s’était trompé dans le brochage. Donc je vais dire du bien de son adaptateur… parce que c’est un bon produit.

A la base, l’adaptateur a été pensé pour les vieux PC : il permet d’utiliser une alimentation moderne (ATX) avec un appareil qui demande de l’AT. Et surtout, il fait bien ça. Premièrement, il fournit une tension de – 5 V. Pas mal vieux ordinateurs (et surtout quelques vieilles cartes ISA) nécessitent en effet cette tension négative pour fonctionner, et c’est d’ailleurs le cas sur certains Mac. Deuxièmement, il permet de gérer correctement la demande en énergie : les ordinateurs modernes utilisent essentiellement du 12 V, les anciens du 5 V. L’adaptateur va limiter (et monitorer) ce qui passe pour éviter de voir de la fumée sortir de l’appareil. Il est programmable, il offre un petit écran qui affiche les informations, et il est possible de choisir les limites pour chaque tension. Enfin, il protège votre alimentation (et le matériel) des accidents éventuels. Il vaut ~50 € directement chez l’auteur.

La carte avec l’adaptateur Mac


Les câbles AT et Mac

Maintenant, parlons de mon cas particulier. Je l’ai acheté pour mes vieux Mac, notamment un Macintosh LC III dont l’alimentation est parfois capricieuse. Plus généralement, c’est assez courant sur ce modèle de se retrouver avec une alimentation qui claque (littéralement, elle font une sorte de tac tac tac) et qui nécessite des réparations. Et au lieu de la réparer ou de trouver un bloc d’occasion pour un usage occasionnel, passer par l’adaptateur et une alimentation ATX a du sens. Ce n’est pas forcément intéressant pour un usage standard : les alimentations ATX sont souvent volumineuses et le prix monte vite, mais pour des tests ponctuels, c’est très efficace. Et au pire, il reste possible d’installer l’adaptateur et une alimentation « Pico ATX » (des modèles très compacts) directement dans le boîtier, vu la consommation assez faible de ces modèles.

L’alimentation d’origine

Le Macintosh LC III (comme tous les LC) a un bloc assez basique, et l’ordinateur s’allume uniquement avec un bouton physique, pas par le clavier. J’avoue que je ne sais pas comment l’adaptateur fonctionne avec les modèles qui s’allument au clavier et nécessitent une tension permanente (même si elle est faible) sur le 5 V. Pour le Macintosh LC, le brochage est simple : deux fils pour la masse, un pour le + 5 V, un pour le + 12 V et un pour le – 5 V. Samuel m’avait fait un câble (en inversant le + 5 et le – 5 par erreur), donc pas de soucis. Au passage, le brochage est inscrit sur le PCB de la carte mère, donc ce n’est pas trop compliqué.

Par défaut, l’adaptateur limite à 4 A pour le 5 V (20 W) et 0,5 A pour le 12 V (6 W). J’ai donc vérifié sur l’alimentation d’origine et réglé l’adaptateur sur les bonnes valeurs. Elle fournit 3,75 A sur le 5 V (c’est OK) et 0,75 A sur le 12 V. Pour tout dire, par défaut, l’adaptateur arrête le Mac en indiquant qu’il y a un problème sur le 12 V, au démarrage, il demande bien donc plus que 0,5 A. Une fois réglé sur 1,5 A, pas de soucis. Les limites hautes sont 8 A en 5 V et 4,75 A en 12 V, donc c’est assez large pour les vieux appareils. Plus largement, le connecteur en sortie de l’adaptateur fournit la msse, le + 5 V, le – 5 V, le + 12 V et le – 12 V, donc c’est adaptable assez facilement à n’importe quel vieil ordinateur qui se base sur ces tensions.

Les valeurs de l’alimentation d’origine

Lors de mes tests, je n’ai pas eu de soucis : j’ai alimenté le Mac avec une vieille alimentation ATX, fait des benchs, etc. Tout fonctionne bien, et une fois réglé sur les bonnes valeurs en sortie, c’est stable. En dehors de la sécurité, l’adaptateur permet surtout d’utiliser des alimentations ATX qui sont souvent silencieuses (surtout sur des charges faibles) et bien plus efficaces que les alimentations de l’époque.

Après un certain temps (réglable), l’adaptateur coupe l’écran


Ca fonctionne bien

Donc si vous travaillez souvent avec de vieux ordinateurs, l’ATX2AT Smart Converter a sa place dans votre boîte à outils, aux côtés de l’émulateur de disquettes et de l’adaptateur pour remplacer un HDD par de la mémoire flash.

Enfin, il y a aussi une application Windows pour effectuer les réglages facilement, mais je ne l’ai pas encore testée.

Scan converter freezes after 7th PC running it

Par : avmw
Hi - We are trying to do an 8 computer setup using NDI and going into vmix or wirecast. We are good to go on 7 connections but once we turn on scan converter on the 8th pc, that one freezes. We have tried it on various PC and have found it happens on the 8th PC no matter what order we connect the PCs.

is there a standard setting we are missing? Do we need a 10g switch? We have a gig switch in line now.

Any suggestions? Is there a limit to how many computers are using the scan converter option?

5 Reasons Why the URSA Mini Pro G2 Is a Documentary Workhorse

Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is a versatile camera, good for nearly any workflow. Let's take a close look at the camera in a documentary environment.

Interview to Paco Gramaje

This is our interview to Paco Gramaje, art director of the Paco Gramaje Studio in Barcelona.

The studio creates immersive multidisciplinary AV shows, especially focusing on the fusion between projection mapping and dance performance.

We asked Paco a few questions about his background and creative career and also about the new projects he has been cooking up during the quarantine period.

1. When did you start working on the interaction between audiovisual and dance performance, and how did you get involved? What are the aspects that are more appealing to you about working in this interdisciplinary field?

It all begun in 2009. After quitting my job as an engineer I moved to Madrid to study a Master in Motion Graphics while making my first experiences in the world of video art. 

In 2010 I started up several collaborations with art organizations in Madrid and they proposed to me to shoot a dance performance by the choreographer Iratche Ansa.

The performance was going to be held at the Matadero in Madrid. From that recording I put together my first video dance “Comunicación Interpretación Automática” which had a very good reception.

I had discovered the potential of dance from an audiovisual perspective and the inner revelation of what I wanted to do in the next few years.

A few months later I made my first dance pieces with live visuals with choreographer Barbara Fritsche.

Thanks to those projects I was able to work on the musical “Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar” in 2013. In 2014 I directed my first proper theatre show: “Girasomnis”.

Interview to Paco Gramaje
2. You are the creator of “Girasomnis”, an itinerant project that has been traveling around the world. Can you tell us about the creative process behind the inception of this innovative project?

I try to “connect” the visuals with the dancers. Sometimes I encourage the dancers to “connect” or follow my visuals.

In this project I also composed the music. This is very useful as I have better control of the creative process. With this project I tried to evoke feelings in the audience without words: just images, dance and instrumental music.

Paco Gramaje - Audiovisual artist
3. Paco Gramaje Studio recently launched the “Dance Mapping Virtual Tour 2020” which it’s fundraising on Gumroad. This is in preparation for a new cutting-edge AV dance project in 2021 involving a 360 immersive environment . Can you give us some insights about the whole project?

This quarantine caused an abrupt stop in my job, but also gave me time to start imagining something new.

The idea was born during the first week of confinement. At the start, It was simple: I just wanted to publish some of our best projects and make them public. But I also felt a need for a change.

The last 3 years I was quite disconnected from my artistic side due to working mostly on commercial projects. 

I was just focusing on making money to pay my bills and trying to have a stable team for audiovisual production. The outbreak of the Covid-19  has been an absolute shift in our work. We started questioning the possibility of doing our shows as we did before.

Therefore I needed to devise another type of format for the new normal awaiting us: a fully immersive virtual Dance Mapping Show.

As my previous theatre production, without the pressure of a client and using the Girasomnis music.

So, in April I started to visualize and write a synopsis of this new project. I then decided to publish “Dance Mapping Virtual Tour 2020” as a memorandum of all these years of physical shows. 

Now it’s time to go further. I want to gather all the knowledge I gained during the last 10 years and apply it to a virtual reality show, where I can break the limits and make an immersive 360º visual performance with dancers.

This new production is planned to be released in VR and physical 360 projection format in late 2021.

4. When working on a project how do you pick your collaborators? What are the main roles you look for in your team? 

When I have the budget I can work with some powerful audiovisual freelancers from my network of collaborators. Failing that I work alone.

I also work with very talented dancers/choreographers from Barcelona. During the years they started to understand my ideas and transform them in beautiful choreographies. 

5. Can you describe your general creative approach when starting on a new project?

I have mostly 2 ways of work. I compose a music draft and then I work on the visuals and choreography or vice versa: I make a draft of visual content with a draft choreography and I try to match the sounds and music.

Sometimes I give leeway to the dancer, so they can create their own choreography and then I create the visual content following their movements.

In the last few years I also worked with some talented musicians for a faster audiovisual production.

6. In 2015, Paco Gramaje Studio won an award at the International Mapping Festival in Girona for the Micro-mapping category. Could you share with us your thoughts about the concept of “Micro-mapping”? 

This was a concept from Roman Torre. In 2015 I shared a space with him and we collaborated together on a video mapping of a rotating stone. It was a nice project called Liquid Series.

In the video mapping area I also tried to develop innovative concepts, differing from the typical big projection on a building facade. 2 Years ago I started to develop the concept of “Holomapping”. I am planning to finish it next year as well.

7. We are aware you regularly teach courses and masterclasses of video mapping applied to performing arts, in Spain and Latin America.


What specific training would you recommend for digital artists who have just started their career and why? Which are the countries with more opportunities for audiovisual arts, in your opinion?

Nowadays, it is possible to learn a lot following digital online courses, but it is always better if somebody guides you. As with everything in life the best way to learn is practice, making mistakes and improving. 

Spain is not the best country for arts, I would say. As far as I know French artists or from other European countries have more grants and support from their governments, but everything is possible if you are passionate about your work.

NDI Source showing in Studio Monitor but not in TC1

Hi All,

I am working on programming our TC1 out for our first production next week. We are running NewBlue Titler Live for GFX and OBS with NDI for one webbased graphic off of a rack mounted PC. The Rack PC as well as our TC1 are both plugged into a Ruckus 7150 24 port switch.

We are running three NDI outputs from New Blue, and two from OBS from the same rack mounted machine. Both the OBS and NewBlue NDI channels can be seen in Studio Monitor. OBS can be seen in the Tricaster, but the NewBlue channels cannot. The NewBlue channels populate as a source on the input drop down list, but they do not actually pull any content in over NDI. The tally from the TC1 to Titler Live also works so it is both sending and receiving information.

Any ideas?

bb15 Open Call: Art + Magic

Par : Marco Savo

DEADLINE: 5 September 2020

bb15 launches the open call: Art + Magic for all audiovisual artist.

The contemporary art venue in Linz opens up its doors to an artist residency resulting in an exhibition or live event.

The open call aims at exploring the primordial relationship between art making and the concept of magic, especially related to the use of new technologies to inspire mystery and wonder.

bb15 Open Call

Artistic gestures and processes can be seen as magical rituals, from which the myth of the artist has emerged over time. The aura of the artwork is used to cast a spell on its viewer!

In the art scene in particular, mysticism around art-making is kept alive by common rituals such as exhibitions, vernissages, and performative events, which propose collective shared experiences of something bigger. 

For this open call, bb15 is seeking original project proposals that trigger mental associations and subliminal experiences at the junction of art, ritual and magic.

The residency program focuses on and explores the interplay between contemporary visual art and auditory practices, in relation to the theme of art+magic. The call doesn’t exclude any artistic media.

bb15 - Open call for audiovisual artists
Teresa Cos: Tunnel Boring Machine

During the residency at bb15, the selected artists will be expected to push forward and bring further their proposal into a work that will be presented to the public at the end of the residency.

It is highly desirable that the invited artists create specific and new works during their stay.

Conditions:

– Duration: 2-3 weeks

– Possible periods: Spring 2021 or Autumn 2021

– There is a € 1200 all-in budget per artist in residence. This amount should cover all costs such as travel, equipment, production costs, daily expenses, and artist fees. Artists will be provided with free accommodation and workplace at the premises of bb15.

– The residency entails the realization of an exhibition or performative event at bb15.

– bb15 will provide technical and curatorial support as well as the promotion of the exhibition.
