Performance optimization of the preview in case of complex effects. - by: schrauber https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221733&Itemid=81#221733 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221733&Itemid=81#221733
Today I would like to suggest to create the optional possibility in the effect code that a different "technique" is automatically used during export than during preview.
My goal here is to improve the export quality of the effect result, not to get unexpected export results.

Example of effects which could benefit from this:
2D DVE plus antialias optionally uses antialiasing, which is based on pre-bluring of the texture. However, this significantly increases the GPU load. Especially if this antialiasing is to be used several times (multiple effects or multiscreen effects with many textures), the GPU load could reach the limit, but at least the energy consumption could increase.

Antialiasing is not so important in the preview. It would be great if the effect programmer could decide to automatically use an alternative "technique" when exporting, or if the user can activate this automatic in the effect settings.
As can be seen in the linked effects, there is already the possibility to change the "technique" in the effect settings, but if many effects are used in the timeline, it would be too much work for the user to change the effect settings of many effects before the export.
I think other effects that many samplers use could also benefit from this.

An additional or alternative possibility would be to change previously defined, identical effect parameters that are present several times in the Timeline globally for the entire Timeline (but probably more difficult to implement?).

Even more possibilities to minimize the GPU load during the preview, especially when using proxies, have been suggested in this thread: www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=201452&Itemid=81#201452]]>

Instead of trying to re-inventing the wheel, why not optimizing the interfaces to PluralEyes and Syncaila or, even better, establishing a collaboration with one of those?]]>

Sorting columns in list view [feature] - by: hugly https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221723&Itemid=81#221723 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221723&Itemid=81#221723
Please consider adding the feature of sorting the fields in the vertical list on the 'Columns' panel, as it was with V14.5 on the panel 'Cusomize Columns'. V14.5 provided a good overview of the entire list while sorting and the way it worked felt very convenient.

Together with improvements of horizontal scrolling when moving columns on the columns headline, that would be perfect.

Thanks for reading this.]]>

App Support For Passwords With Special Characters - by: JesseWaas https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221523&Itemid=81#221523 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221523&Itemid=81#221523
Allowing an unrestricted range of characters would improve password security, and bring the app into alignment with the website which appears to already support this. The disconnect with the website is particularly problematic, as you can register an account on the website which you are then unable to use with the app.]]>

Commands to give focus to the current player or the current recorder [feature] ? - by: hugly https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221220&Itemid=81#221220 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=221220&Itemid=81#221220
From the feedback I got then, I'm assuming that those have been implemented. Unfortunately, I don't know the commands.

Can someone point me in the right direction?]]>

Color correction effect: Please allow more than 8 bit precision also in the tab "Curves". - by: schrauber https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=220975&Itemid=81#220975 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=220975&Itemid=81#220975 Now I noticed that color corrections which are created using the curves seem to work internally with about 8 bits, independent of the project settings (tested in the preview and the free-8-bit export.

For testing I used the "Colour Gradient" effect, and set it to very dark.

Reference test (OK):
- I increased the brightness with the "Gain" parameter (1000%) in the colour correction effect
- When changing the GPU precision, as expected, clear differences were visible.

Test with curves:
- I adjusted the steepness of the curve so that it should do almost the same as in the test before
- When changing the GPU precision, I unexpectedly did not see any significant quality improvements when I switched to higher GPU precision.

See the video:



The same results from both tests for free-8-bit export.

I can't test if the 10 bit export would use a higher GPU precision in this test.]]>

current workflow is a bit slow, export as wav - open in audacity, fix file, export as wav, re-import.

apart from being useful in itself it'd make Lightworks limited Audio tools less of a problem.]]>

it'd be great if i could save my own eq presets.

Improve handling comfort in graphs ans settings views - by: wberthin https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=220449&Itemid=81#220449 https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&func=view&catid=12&id=220449&Itemid=81#220449
1) Collape/Expand all effects via right mouse-click menu (same for settings view)
2) In graphs view hide all effects without any keyframed parameters (it's not of any value to display those with the hint that they don't have keyframed parameters). This is just unnecessarily increasing the scolling area.
3) Allow e.g. alphabetical order of effects (same for settings view) - or even better: allow manual arrangement of the effect order]]>
