Default Cinema ads DCM delivery UK

A client, a global brand that I handle TV ads for here in the UK (clearance modification legalising and delivery) asked me to handle cinema clearence.
That was a painless.

However the client had been told that DCM London would "handle the file creation". This turned out to be "a misunderstanding" and the "Hi David, can you..." email popped into the inbox. A somewhat different ballgame from where we started.

Audio has to go through a Dolby Licensed lab - and boy do they know how to charge...Global creatives will supply stems etc and that is in hand.

I know a few of you are up to speed on this so I seek your advice.

1 Master is 23.98 ProRes HQ - 24 fps Tiff sequence required. What is the best way to achieve this? Anything wrong with dropping the 23.98 onto a 24fps timeline and exporting the image sequence.

2 Can I assume that the Tiff sequence from Edius is as good as any other sotware can produce. ie will " a London Post House" do anything better than "Essex Boy Dave"?

Thanks

David

change the clip in the bin to 24p prior to adding to 24p timeline
then export to targa or tiff sequence

you can then also create the whole DCP package for the cinema

Brilliant. Thank you

Just had a strange error message. The Bottle of Red you are trying to send is too large for We Transfer.

Hi, I had to do this for a client - 10min short for film festivals. DCPOmatic worked - very slowly, the trouble was getting the file delivered, I needed it on a stick - linux format - there were not any free players to test it on either - all hugely expensive, I have a friend with a cinema and was able to test it - 5 trips to the cinema later I cracked it! I ended up using a usb stick he had received his adverts on - I struggled to make it work on anything I formatted (nightmare utils to format linux). I did this 3y ago so it may be easier - honestly the price a london house quoted I would pay - I took longer sorting it out than the cost to do it easily

Let me know if you succeed easily

Andy

I make DCP's regularly at the office using a commercial software. The conversion to the jpeg2000 codec used for DCP is always slow, unless you have dedicated hardware encoders.

Standard practice is to format the delivery drive in Linux EXT2 or EXT3 format with an inode of 128. Most, if not all DCP servers, can also accept an NTFS formatted drive, but they do prefer the linux formatted drives for the purposes of correct linux privileges.

for quick playback tests, DCP-O-Matic also has a player to confirm if the file is ok, but that does not mean the particular server will like the file made by DCP-O-Matic. The ultimate test is when the server tries to ingest the file.

Due to the current situation, the whole thing has ground to a halt. I suspect they will dump the Cinema idea and revert to VOD as at least they can get the ad out there.
For me (well for the client), the biggest cost is the Dolby audio, which has to come from a Dolby licensed studio who charge 250-300 per hour.
As this will go through DCM London I would just have to supply audio (cooked by the Dolby studio) and the image seq.I dont have to combine...AFAIK as DCM do that before they deliver to Pearl and Dean, who incidentally with the exception of one guy, rhyme with Bankers.
