I recently upgraded my computer from a G5 PPC to a new Mac Pro 8 core running 10.4.10 and quicktime 7.2. I have been unsuccessful in getting the standalone Red 4.1.5 engine to render quicktimes in 16 bit mode on the 8 core. All 16 bit quicktime renders have incorrect edges on titles or graphics. The edges appear to sparkle and don't have a clean key. 8 bit quicktime renders are accurate and are working correctly. This problem does not exist on my older G5 PPC (10.4.9, quicktime 7.1.6) so I don't know if it's a Mac Intel or software issue. Any help would be appreciated.
I think the best course of action is to present this to our support department so that we can bring this into the labs in an effort to reproduce your results. If we can reproduce the problem then we can fix it so with that can you please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and cc me email@example.com. We will need project files and renders that demonstrate the problem. A copy of the preferences file would help too. Please know that we'll work together to solve the problem as quickly as possible.
I just made a new post about this before I read down to this one, but that sounds like the issue I'm having--only with the RED plug-in and Title 3d. Edges looking bad on vector text and spline media. Only I don't think there's a way to switch between 16 and 8 bit mode in those apps. Is there?
