    v3 issues/problems

    by OriolP » Tue Sep 18, 2018 1:50 pm

    Hi all,
    I got some issues using v3, so I want to share with all of you if you have the same problems and somebody know ways to solve them. Also can be a post for more users to explain some problems with this version.

    - Layer with video in AVFOUNDATION mode, applied some pixel FX like Contrast and the preview window started flickering or layer invisible
    - PNG with SCREEN blending mode, doesn't recognize the transparency. I solved the problem using JPG.

    Anybody had this issues? Anybody to solve this?

    - When I change from scene 2 to scene 1
    A layer that I had in scene 1 with a pixel fx and video in Avfoundation, the layer becames invisibe, to solve it I need to put it in ffmpeg mode and again in avfoundation mode to make work the pixel effect

    Yesterday I used v3 with my MacBook Pro and noticed a couple of bugs.

    First the specifications:

    MacBook Pro
    13-inch 2017
    2,5 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB RAM
    Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640
    mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6

    Modul8 outputs to Syphon and in the software Vuo (https://vuo.org/) I fetch the Syphon signal apply a mask, add a logo and then I output it to the projector via VGA cable.

    I was using mostly PhotoJPG videos and a couple of PNGs (without Alpha transparency)
    Size of the loops ranged from 10 to 500 MB.

    Bug #1: Strange glitches over the interface
    If I remember correctly these glitches also moved when I moved the interface window. So they were kind of "glued" to the position they had on the interface window.
    Resolved through: Restart of Modul8

    Bug #2: Name of the currently selected video loop disappeared from the individual layer.
    Here you can see the following:
    - Preview mode "Group Inv"
    - Currently active Group: Group A
    - In Group B there is only one selected loop: "468613818"
    - Pixel FX "Saturation" and "Contrast"
    - The name of the selected loop is not shown in the layers
    Resolved through: Restart of Modul8

    Bug #3: The still image PNGs where not played and showed only as black still image.
    Even totally removing them from the media library and re-adding them did not solve the problem.
    Resolved through: Restart of Modul8

    Bug #4: Crash of Modul8 when I change something in Vuo
    Now it gets a bit tricky but let's try it:
    In Vuo I apply not only a mask but I also overlay a logo.
    When I change something in the Vuo composition (e.g. connect or disconnect cables) Modul8 sometimes completely crashes.

    Bug #5: Saturation "B&W" does not get applied
    I applied "Saturation" and "Contrast" to this layer and suddenly the saturation knob was completely ignored.

    Bonus behaviour I noticed (Not sure if it is a bug):
    If I load a lots of new video loops into the media library the live video signal completely freezes for a couple of seconds.

    As far as I remember, none of the above bugs appeared in V2.

    I don't know if this posting is the right place to post this bugs, so just let me know if I should post/report them elsewhere.


    Edit: Added Bug #5

    Please download and try the Beta version from Modul8 3.1 that fixes several of the reported problems.
    The beta build is available on Yourspace.
    Please let me know.
