After reading almost every post about multiprojection i still have some questions, or maybe better, some experience tips are wanted. I'm looking for a powerful tool which is able to handle high resolution with 4-6 Projections. Here is my setup and the question related to it:
This is my setup:
1 x 2,6 Ghz quad MacPro - 3 GB
4 graphic cards
internal SATA Harddrive
As i read here, the best way to manage more projections in modul8 is, to render one large movie and split it do the 6 projectors.
So far, no problem....
but. it should be 720p resolution, or at least 1024x768 per projector.
That gives me in the second case a movie with 6144x768 pixels.
1. is it ok to render one movie with all the material in one row? --> 6144 width or is it better trying to arrange the 6 channels on one canvas, like 3072x1536 ?
2. my major problem is, that this movie should be around 6 hours for an art live performance....
has anybody some tips and experience with such a long projections with 6 channels....
i built a 6144x768 pixels test movie about 30 sec. with photo jpg compressor at max quality, giving me a 2,4gb file wich wasn't loaded in, after about 10 min.. so i gave up at the moment.
I'm appreciate every kind of experience tips, or also some tips for other systems if modul8 can't handle this...
thank you very much
