Olly Funkster (Funkster) added a comment to T62517: Scene strips in the VSE are excessively slow to playback..

I've been using sequence strips in 2.8, and haven't noticed a difference in framerate between the sequence strip and the scene it came from. I do have a chunky processor though, and some patches applied.

Really, KBE / Push & Pan is the thing you do with it, not the effect of ticking this box. It should probably be called "hi-res scaling transform" or something.

Ok, in that case it makes sense. So is the intent for the sequencer output to remain unchanged when changing a scene start/frame, and only providing a visual indication for the user to update it to match?

Olly Funkster (Funkster) added a comment to D2322: Adjust Scene sequence strips in VSE editors when the start or end position of a referenced scene is changed.

Oh, it doesn't change the length of the strip - it changes the length of the source scene that is contained within that strip (which is a copy, and currently it only inherits at the point the strip is created). It will never bump the scene strip onto a different channel. This is perhaps poorly worded in my description.

Could someone provide a worked example of where this would be a problem, but where that problem would not be experienced when adding the scene a second time? I think it's important that old and new strips of the same scene behave consistently - and if you don't want them to change, all you need to do is simply leave your scene start and end where they are.

Question is if it wouldn't be better to do timing conversion in do_versions and not add "Correct Timing" toggle to UI.

I don't seem to be able to update this diff directly (I suppose that's reasonable) so here's the latest diff. I've taken the liberty of changing the wording a little bit, and had a go at improving the behaviour when you check / uncheck the box in terms of forcing a redraw, but I still can't make it refresh the preview window for the frame that is currently displayed.

Any change in behaviour is in FFMPEG, not in the VSE code itself (which just takes the frames and the playback rate data from ffmpeg as it has always done).

@Tobiasz Karoń (unfa) VLC is pretty clever, and if the file contains information about a dropped frame or an altered presentation time, you can bet that VLC is capable of interpreting that correctly and adjusting the timing to stay in sync. Blender just takes the average frame rate, and the index of the frame you're on, and calls it a day.

Since the audio length in your reports is the same between 2.76b and later versions, and it's the video that has changed length, I would argue that 2.76b was getting the video length wrong somehow. It may even be a difference in ffmpeg / libavcodec rather than in blender itself, since the library versions also change between blender releases.

Whoops, sorry - I mis-spoke before. I had added a text strip, forgetting that those default to "alpha over". Seems it doesn't matter where they are in the layer stack, if you have any other strips that are supposed to combine with the scene render (Add, Subtract, Multiply, Alpha over / under, Over Drop blend modes) then you either get nothing, or the 3D scene render, as your output (which thus doesn't match the OpenGL preview).

There's something pretty odd going on here. Firstly, I wound my source back to the commit that was tagged as 2.78c, and it still exhibits the problem. Secondly, the problem is nothing to do with the operation of "alpha over", but instead to do with the render result display.

Not going to reopen this yet, but I did have a crash today just as a proxy finished rebuilding.

@Germano Cavalcante (mano-wii) sorry for the delay in replying, have been AFK on holiday. I agree that the recursive search every frame is not efficient. I ended up doing it this way in order to avoid changing any structs / file data, to make sure it was compatible with as much as possible. It would be much better to record the parent / child's pointers into the scene / strip struct at the point of adding the scene, and save this into the file somehow, rather than working it out from scratch every time.

Olly Funkster (Funkster) updated subscribers of T50679: VSE locked strips moves with gaps tools.

Seems this feature was done by @Ton Roosendaal (ton) and @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) back in 2013, I'm sure there's a reason.

Olly Funkster (Funkster) added a comment to T50679: VSE locked strips moves with gaps tools.

In fact, in the description of the command (hover over it), it does say "independent of selection or locked state of strips" so I guess this is intentional.

Confirmed with master hash d2f4900. Also positioning cursor over clip 2 and removing gaps also moves clip 3 - basically locking has no effect on the remove gaps command.

Olly Funkster (Funkster) added a comment to T42355: A video strip is unnecessarily cropped before final mapping to render result.

Because I felt like it, I have made D2506 which introduces Ken Burns Mode to Transform strips. If you find it helps then use it, if you don't then don't! :o)

Patch made, just have to twist the arm of one of the devs to commit it :o)

Olly Funkster (Funkster) added a comment to T50489: VSE movie strips: unreliable timing, unwanted time warping.

I downloaded your phone video, and I think that it does not have a consistent framerate - as algorith noted its average framerate is 26.57fps, but even with blender set to that rate it doesn't map correctly.

I use mixed framerates a lot, so I made blender cope with it better than it does... it's not quite production ready yet as I do notice bugs when I'm using it, but I no longer rely on the "speed control" strip.

Olly Funkster (Funkster) added a comment to T50139: Adding a scene strip to VSE in the same scene makes results vary depending on scene start frame.

Huh. Confirmed using your command - I was using -f to render one frame rather than start and end frames.

I've tried a few variations, but always get the same size image as the one generated in interactive rendering.
