follow these tips to make your project lighter before compressing it to zip
  • This tool serves to gather the dpx rendered out of Color. In contrast to the tool bundled with Color, this tool
    • numbers each image according to the timecode of the shot : e.g. if the shot begins at timecode 01:00:00:00 of the timeline (@25 images/seconds), the image will have number 100000.dpx
    • leave holes in 2 shots when there is black between the shots. If shot 2 ends at timecode 01:00:10:00 and shot 3 begins at timecode 01:00:20:00, the last image of shot 2 will be numbered 90250, and the first image of shot 3 will be numbered 90500
    • holes between the 2 shots can be filled with the tool fill the gaps in a dpx image sequence
  • used with After Effects, Color allows dpx to masterize a color-grading in dpx rather that Quicktime movies : this is the best to shoot to film
1. upload the zipped Color project
exemple.colorproj.zip (remove)
2. operation
framerate :
timecode offset of the first image (example)
will be used to start numbering to a given number (eg. 90000 for 01:00:00:00 @25).
timecode at which starts the second reel (example)
if not empty, a second reel will start at the given timecode
Proxys : gather also ignore
black image (example)
the black image that will be used to fill in holes. Caution ! It must be on the same volume as the images.
After Effects need the black image to be the same resolution as the rest of the timeline
destination folder (example)
directory where the dpx will be gathered : must be on the same volume as the dpx rendered : no disk space will be used for gathering (links are used, not copies)
rendered dpxs list (example)
download this application to list every dpx rendered
