    • PS4 Capture Audio Issues

      in Forums > PS4 Capture Audio Issues | Follow this topic


      Hey everybody,

      So I've run into an odd issue -- any gameplay footage captured on my PS4 has b0rked audio in Premiere Pro CS6. I thought maybe the sequence settings weren't getting set correctly when dropping the footage into the timeline, but sure enough setting them manually didn't help either. The only solution I found was to rip the audio from my original clip to an MP3, then unlink the A/V within my sequence and replace it with the MP3 file.

      Anyone else run into this crap?

    • New Network Setup

      1 year ago


      Just went through a bit of an internal network revamp. A modest dual-drive RAID1 setup (2TB WD Reds) with a DarkKnight router and RPi3. Seems stable enough so far. Anyone have any suggestions for RPi-based video streaming servers?

      Nothing quite makes you feel old like finding one of your fav memes has hit the decade mark. Here's the original video in all its 480p glory!

      So, I responded to a call for extras at the Davis Film Society and ended up on camera for the first time in a few years. It was fun! Got to play a sarcastically-clapping asshole. =P

      So, this week I had the displeasure of finding out that support for my favorite flavor of Linux has been discontinued. Nothing like trying to update your apt and finding the servers (mostly) time out.

      On the plus side, it's prompted me to move to Debian. It's kind of a mixed blessing, since Debian is much more standardized. It's also a helluva lot more bug-ridden, which strikes me as odd. Small things, like the CD-ROM not being removed from the sources.list file even after initial installation and first boot. It seems I've gotten most of them ironed out, and have found the majority of my favorite tools in the repos.

      This quarter I'm taking ECS 030 here at Davis (C and Unix programming) to knock out a pre-req for my major, and it's been pretty damn interesting. My professor clearly doesn't like teaching to the LCD, so we're spending half of each lecture talking about graphics work (which is so far beyond the scope of this class it's great!).

      Well, so much for moving to Austin like I'd hoped all those years ago, eh? Ended up attending the University of California Davis for engineering, but have recently switched my major to CompSci. It looks like there'll be some fun times ahead catching up on RvB and Drunk Tank podcasts (I refuse to stop calling it that).

      The industry has changed quite a bit while I've been stuck away in school. Unreal Engine 4 looks nearly photo-realistic, 3D printing is approaching a household status, and CG animation is dirt cheap compared to what it was five years ago. Having to catch up has been quite the challenge!

      Oh, speaking of Unreal - the engine is now free for everyone! I just grabbed a copy today. Hoping it hasn't changed much since the UDK for UT3, but I won't hold my breath. That new lighting engine looks sick!

      Sad to hear about Monty - my conversation with him at RTX is what got me to establish the workflow I use now, which doesn't perfectly emulate his but certainly takes quite a bit of influence from his multi-monitor, analytical approach. We'll miss you, man. The 'net won't be the same without you.

    • Visual Studio 2012

      5 years ago


      Alright, I'm having a hard time believing this, but I genuinely like Visual Studio 2012. I thought, "Alright, let's see what shitty offering we're going to get this year, before I have to get used to it." It blows 2010 and its predecessors out of the water. For once, we've gotten a faithful implementation of C++ right off the bat, plus some fucking amazing improvements to UI configuration options. It'd take me a while to list them, but suffice it to say it's a helluva lot easier on the eyes than, say, CodeBlocks, or even NotePad++ (which I use pretty much religiously).

      Here's the real shocker: VS2012 uses that new UI style that's come shipping with Windows 8 (I forgot what they're calling it now, but I'm sure most of you will recognize it as "Metro"). I've been amongst that jaded, cynical crowd saying, "Pfft, screw that, I'm not touching it", but this may have genuinely changed my mind. I'm going to give Windows 8 RTM a serious shot in a VM for the next few days and see how it goes.

      Your case mods are a little classier.

      I almost asked you what game JSRF was but then I remembered that this is the future and you can find any answer to any question on Google.

      Yeah, that was already claimed by Glowden. Just shipped it off today, in fact. I will be doing more in the future, however. Probably one every month or two, depending on how many requests I get in.

      At time of writing, I work part time for a company that supplies me with enough spare parts to throw together refurbished XBOX 360s from time-to-time. Apparently, that now extends to PS3's (though I'm not sure how many of those I'll be getting in).

      Hey Nova5 were you the one in Blawndees tinychat last Sunday(2/13/11), at least I think it was Sunday, saying that you had a custom halflife Xbox 360 you were giving away to anyone as long as they paid for the shipping?
