Is this with version build 127.4?

This usually happen when too many videos are called together and overshoot the memory limit.

Example if you set the limit to 4 X 720p
Then you have Cue 1 with 3 720p Video and the next cue is 2 720p Video
When you can cue 2, at transition time there's 5 720p video playing, so the engine has to drop one of them.

Indeed memory limit has to do whith this, but I supose it's not working quite good sometimes... as when you enable 2nd engine (for example) you need to re-aply all limits as showed one are not working.
But I think it's still something else that is not hadling well the videos or so... because I'd fighted with this a lot and making sure that all limits are not reached and still sometimes I've some random behaviour on this. According to Marc Colemont explanation some months ago, it also related with the codec of the video, Maxedia does not handle very well other codecs than H264 (as I understands), the worst thing is that the library of video included in the server most of them are not H264 and are not working fully well.

Check the limits on Menu>Video>Performance&Quality (if I remember well).

Cheers,

The settings are in the Menu > Video > Output> Performances and Quality.

What need to be understand is when you set the memomry to play 8 Full HD for example, you really look both graphic and CPU memory for 8 X 2048 X 1200.

Even if you don't play any video, this memory is frozen.

So you can't set all settings to maximum and expect everything to be smooth. you have to find the right balance.

If you use both engine, then you have to divide the perofroamce by 2... plus some additional headroom.

Unfortunately you can't run 19 layers of HD video, there is not enough processing power and hard drive speed available.

Only by replacing the complete graphics card. However the limit is also the Windows RAM which is limited to 2GB for a single application.

This is the DMX layout:
ftp://ftp.martin.dk/controller/Maxedia/documents/Maxedia3%20DMX%20Protocol.pdf
It is not possible to expose all functions to DMX,it would take several Universes and actually our layers are dynamic, so some take 3 parameters, some 7 or 8 to modify a plugin.
Our concept has never been to be a fully DMX controlled layer based system but to use DMX to activate cues programmed on the user interface. We feel that it gives better creative control than a DMX controlled media player.

Hi matthias...

First of all thanks for the quick answers...

Second, so what does the max limit of the videos playing at once without sticking the system( as far as you tried ) ?? I'm asking because the company I work with is corently inserting the maxedia to the 2 biggest artist and music production in Israel and we have often issues with the system that is getting stuck and we didn't found any good explanation from no one...

Third, is there a protocol for the fx parameters of the layers?? I built the device for it but I didn't knew what each step does...

Thanks in advanced...
