  1. Hi! I'm afraid that Mistika Boutique does not support Blackmagic Raw at the moment. However, it's present in the development map, it will be supported as soon as possible ? Indeed, Mistika Boutique will support footage from that camera, as long as it's not Blackmagic Raw. Most Blackmagcs record also in Pro Res, right? That's quite a handy codec to work with! Let me know if you have any other questions. I'll happily answer them ? Cheers, Cristóbal
  2. Hi guys! We released last week a new version of Mistika Boutique, with tones of bugs fixed, more stability, and an updated mapping for tangent panels with the new functionalities mapped. Since we've discussing in this thread the mapping for the Wave2, I think it would be worth it to write you a report of the new functions and changes I made. I considered your feedback when designing it, but of course, there's always room for improvement. Let me know your thoughts, please. Here it is. As a general approach, I decided to add more functions introducing second or third banks in the Buttons and the Knobs of the panel. You can switch between the different banks in the up and down arrows: However, we have to take into account that the Trackballs do not support for second banks. Therefore, the new functions of the Trackballs had to be mapped into the Alternative. Now, having said that, I'll list the changes mode by mode: 1. Primaries mode: - 2nd Bt bank with Printer lights options in the Standard and Alternative bank. Unfortunately, there was no room for the "1 point" button of the Printer lights. - 2nd Kb bank with Temperature, Tint, and Pivots. - Offset and Contrast trackballs mapped into the Alternative of the Trackballs. Jeff tested it in his own, and those did not work for him. It would awesome if someone else could test that so we can see in there's something wrong with it. Thanks a lot in advanced. 2. Bands mode: - 2nd Bt bank with All Hue, All sat, All contrast and the Ranges controlers. -2nd Kb bank with Reset All, Reset Ranges, Trackball and Slider modes. 3. Fixed vector mode: - 1rst Kb bank with the RGB functions. - 2nd Kb bank with the CMY functions. 4. Windows mode: - The Add/Prev/Next vector buttons are no longer there. Instead of them, you will find Line, Ellipse and Rectangle window. - 2nd Bt bank with Invert and Convert to Shape buttons. - Added Softness controlers for the Shapes. 5. Curves mode: - 2nd Kb bank with the X controllers of the points. - 2nd Bt bank with: Solo Curve. Gang RGB, Luma Curve, R, G, B, Sat-Sat, Luma, Sat and Add Points. - 3rd Bt bank with: Hue-Hue, Hue-Sat, Hue-Luma, Red Point, Yellow Point, Green Point, Cyan Point, Blue point and Magenta points. - Curve points position controllers mapped also in the Track balls. 6. Qualifier mode: - 2nd Kb bank with: Lum Low, Lum High; Soft Low, Soft Ghigh, PrekeyBlur, Keyblur, Filter 1, Filter 1 type and K tolerantece. - 2nd Bt bank worth: Proportional, Key invert, Addpoints, Solo Sat, Lock Sat, Reset Sat, Solo Lum Lock Lum and Reset Lum - Key point controlers in the Track balls. 7. Filters mode: - New mode with Blur/Sharp, Blur Blend and Sharp Blen. I hope you like it! I'd love to see your feedback! ? Cheers, Cristóbal
  3. For R3D values there's no RAW param to modify the anamoprh setting. Each camera manufacturer provides different capabilities for the RAW params. To work with anamoprh correctly you'll need to go with the good old framing effect and use the different tools built in Mistika to propagate the values accordingly: dummies, display filters, gangs, fx presets... and so on ?
  4. Hi guys! Just to let you all know, thanks to Ilia we could identify a beta issue. Unfortunately, when working with an evaluation license, it is not possible to render cache at first. Fortunately, there's a quick solution. If you make a render with Mistika.js codec, and you send this render to the same location where you set the Playback Cache in Mconfig, that solves the issue and you can make renders of the cache from that point. The dev team is already aware of this issue and they will fix it as soon as possible. There's a parameter in the Arri Raw params called: Anamorph factor. By default it will bet set with "Source" mode, but you can change it. Then, you have to be aware of the Project settings, which define the final output resolution, and the mode in which each clip is set in the Framing. By default, they will be set with Project mode, so they get automatically adapted. But you can change those settings and propagate them. Cheers, Cristóbal
  5. Then, there must be something else we are overlooking. I'm sorry you are facing that inconvenience. We take a deeper look into it if you open a ticket in the support portal That way all our agents will be aware of the issue Cheers, Cristobal
  6. Then, you need to go to Edit > Playback Cache > Render Pending in Foreground When clicked in there, a progress bar will appear and Mistika will start rendering the Cache.
  7. If the shot you want to denoise has an alpha already associated, the denoise will apply the effect only on the alpha. If not, the alpha made automatically by the Denoise effect is a movement map to control the combined mode. Pixel-moving areas are painted white, static areas are black. Over the white areas the Spatial denoise is applied. On the black the mode applied is the temporal. I'll add it to the feature request list. It will be considered for future request surveys. ? First of all, check that the folder you selected for the Playback cache has write and read permission please. If not, grant permission and it should work. Then, be sure that the cache is rendered. You have to first activate the Cache on the Effects/Clips you want to activate the cache. Then, you have to render the cache, you can do it in foreground or background mode. Let me know if that works please ? Looking forward to your reply. Cheers, Cristóbal
  8. I'm afraid not! That's not possible at the moment. The issue is caused because the Noise effect makes an alpha channels based on the analysis of the image. You need to get rid of the alpha channel produced by the Noise effect, by placing a "Clear Alpha" effect on top of it. Let me know if it works please ? Cheers, Cristóbal
  9. That Invert button will be added on the left tool bar with the rest of the shape combination tools ? Thanks a lot for the feedback! Cheers, Cristóbal
  10. Hi Yoav! That must be a particular issue of that beta version that is already fixed and will be available in the forthcoming version. The are different ways to work on the outside selection of the shape. The easiest would be to create the shape, and then go to the Outside mode. The other one, is going to the Shape tab and set input alpha > Invert, Combine > Add inverted. Is that what you are looking for? Please, let me know your thoughts ? Cheers, Cristóbal
  11. Hola Manuel, Sin duda este es un buen canal para aportar feedback. Muchas gracias por haberte puesto en contacto con nosotros. Antes que nada, disculpa la demora en la respuesta. El feedback siempre es bienvenido, es lo que hace la Tecnología Mistika cada día mejor. En cuanto a los subtítulos en los vídeos promocionales es algo que siempre hemos evaluado y que nos gustaría incorporar en un futuro para llega a más audiencias, sin embargo, en estos momentos los recursos son limitados pero con gusto lo tendremos en cuenta para próximos vídeos De momento solo podemos disponer de los subtítulos que ofrece Youtube cuando realiza la traducción automática. Sin embargo, en caso de videos promocionales, intentamos comunicar los elementos más importantes con pocas palabras para conseguir que el mensaje llegue de manera efectiva al usuario. Disponemos de otros canales para aclarar esta información si es necesario, por lo que por favor, no dudes en ponerte en contacto con nosotros siempre que lo necesites, ya sea para aportar feedback, o preguntarnos cualquier duda técnica sobre las apps de SGO. Nuevamente, muchas gracias por tu aportación. Un saludo, Cristóbal
  12. Hi Jeff! Thanks a lot for the feedback. It's utterly appreciated. I'll go point by point discussing the topics ? Then, I'd say that definitely that a 16:9 screen ratio screen would be optimal. Although I assure you that different screen resolutions will be supported and it's a matter present in the development road. Indeed, you can do it by modifying a parameter inside the mistikarc.cfg file. Do the following: - Go to this location: C:\Users\*USERNAME*\SGO AppData\Mistika - Open the mistikarc.cfg file with a text editor. - Look for the EXPIRATIONWARNING parameter, you'll see a number on the right column. Modify to 1 if you want only to be warned the last day of your license, or 0 if you don't want to be warned. I've talked to the dev team, and this option will be added on the Mconfig, so you can manually change it on a more user friendly way. I'll let you know when this is ready ? Indeed, this behaviour is considered not to be optimal and efficient by a lot of users. It can make the initialising of Mistika slower As Yoav said, that's precisely what the source monitor is for! ? You can configure it to see the Source monitor on your output video. By activating the "Live Video" option in the Menu settings of the Source Monitor. Indeed, the letter "D" for disable, which activates the "Bypass" button. That bypasses the eye that is right to the effects of the Eval tree. However, shortcuts in Mistika Boutique work depending on the area where the mouse is located, in other words, it depends on the focus. So, to activate this shortcut, you have to locate the mouse focus on the Eval tree. This behaviour will be changed in the future as part of the development tasks. I'm afraid I can't think of a way rather than double click to enter the visual editor. I'll dig into this issue. However, I can suggest you to configure on of the clicks of your pen to act as double click. That can sort out your problem. Thanks a lot for this valuable feedback. I'll suggest this in the next meeting. Maybe it could be nice to also have a modifier of that time in the Mconfig? Let me know your thoughts ? Indeed, I also think it's a great idea. I'll document this and let the dev team know. That's been asked from other users too. Already added to the feature request list! Is it possible that it's the time for the system to recognise the external drive? In my system, as soon as the external unit is recognised, I refresh the Media Browser and I can enter. Yes, we are aware of this issue and it will be improved. Thanks for bringing it up! I hope I solved some of your doubts! Thanks a lot for the awesome feedback ? Cheers, Cristóbal
  13. Matt, can you open a ticket support with us so we can take this a deeper look? Indeed, there seems to be issues with the VR stitch effect. Cheers, Cristóbal
  14. Hi Jeff! Thanks a lot for sharing your technical issues with us throughout our forums. Indeed, we can use this thread to discuss different topics about Mistika 10. You an always open a ticket in our support ticket, but this way we can share thoughts and feedback on a more broad open manner. The best scaling factor for Mistika (and other applications as well) would be an UHD monitor. Since it's the double of an HD monitor, it is mathematically more simple to calculate. However, although in this first beta there are known issues related to scaling GUI, I can guarantee you those will be fixed, so users don't have to adapt to Mistika rather than Mistika adapts to the scaling of the user preferences. Personally, I would go definitely for a 3840x2160 monitor, which is the one I'm currently using. This is my personal opinion, but I think it makes everything sharper and more pleasant to see (in Mistika and other applications). Other users prefer to use 2560x1440 pixel monitors, which is also a great aspect ratio for your office set up. Hi Matt! Indeed, we are facing that issue in this beta. The dev team is already tackling down the problem. I'll let you know whenever the issue is solved! But, please, try the following settings, instead of leaving the automatic mode, select 2 on both monitors. It worked for me: Looking forward to your replies. Cheers, Cristóbal
  15. Hi Rakesh! I'm so glad you are already downloaded the open beta for Mistika Boutique 10 The RAW files should be embedded into the file, as you can see in this screenshot: However, be sure that you are working on a new project and a new timeline created with Mistika Boutique 10. Mistika products have retro-compatibility between versions, however, there are situations like this is one in which big new features are not created in timelines created with previous versions to avoid conflicts That's not possible. As said in the webinars, that what the development road map is for Mistika Boutique, in which you will be able to position different windows wherever you like. However, it's not possible at the moment. Sorry for that inconvenience. Please let us know whatever feedback or technical issues you may encounter. We will happily listen to your concerns! Cheers, Cristóbal
  16. Hi Jeff! Thanks for asking. Soon the Open Beta will be published. I'm afraid this Beta will not contain a new mapping. Forthcoming betas will be released with the new features added to the mapping, and re-mapped features designed according to the feedback from several clients, such as Jan Klier, present in this thread. Cheers, Cristóbal
  17. Hi Miguel! Thanks a lot for this feedback. I have proceed with this as with the other features. However, I have some doubts regarding this feature. I mean, when transcoding from storage 01 to storage 02, you are not necessarily forced to make a copy first. You can directly send the transcode to be placed on a different storage. Have you tried that? Cheers, Cristóbal
  18. Hi Miguel! Indeed, none of these features are developed in Mistika Workflows. I'll add them the feature request list. They will be considered it for discussion when our next R&D meeting takes place. Let us know if you have any more doubts. Cheers, Cristóbal
  19. Hi Miguel! Thanks a lot for your much appreciated feedback. Next version of Mistika Workflows will be capable of down-scaling the resolution with different scaling options! That way users will have the possibility to create down-scaled proxys for the editing department or client reviewing with smooth playback (among other possibilities given this new feature). Cheers, Crstóbal
  20. Hi Miguel, Indeed, that feature is still in development. I'll keep this forum threat to let you know whenever it is integrated in Workflows. Although if you keep up with the SGO social media, any new release gives information about the new fixes and features developed for each version. Cheers, Cristóbal
  21. Hi Miguel! I'm afraid the undo option has not been developed yet. As soon as it developed and fully integrated with the software I'll personally let you know. Sorry for this inconvenience. Cheers, Cristóbal
  22. Hi Miguel! Is it possible that you can send me a MKV file to test it, please? Cheers, Cristóbal
  23. Hi Miguel! Sorry for the late reply. Many thanks for reaching out and thank you for using Mistika Workflows, which is much appreciated. First, we'd like to thank you for your request and for your contribution to make Mistika even better every day. I have saved all your requests on our Feature Requests documentation, and will consider it for discussion when our next R&D meeting takes place. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. Thank you very much again and have a great day. Kind regards, Cristóbal
  24. Tangent_Mapping_Wave2_PrinterLightsModification_v02.xml Hi everyone! I have tested the new beta for the Tangent Mapping software and it works so great. Can't wait to see what else is coming from Tangent. As Jeff said, a couple of quick tapping on the Alt button does the trick. I reckon that solves the issue we were discussing regarding the Wave2. I though I had to redesign the whole mappping, but actually the only action need is to select that function on the User preferences: I did a couple more changes in the Windows and Curve modes. I hope you like them better that way! It's attached in this post. I hope you are all safe and sound in this difficult times. Cheers to all, Cristóbal
