I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic Intensity Pro

liik's picture

Hi,

I've installed a Blackmagic Intensity Pro card with the latest drivers for live input in QC via Video In patch. It's connected to a sony pan/shift/tilt camera by s-video and the .qtz utilises Kineme Core, GL Tools, Alpha Blend mode, CVtools, v002 Optical Flow, v002 Blurs and Optical Flow Downloader plugin.

... For some reason after about 20-30 minutes the captured video starts stalling and produces glitch after which QC crashes.

... Here's the crash report. Can anyone help and tell me what seems to be wrong?

Thnx!

Liik

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

Without a composition it's sort of hard to say. It says it's CVTools causing this, I believe, but that's been stable for me... it might be something else in the setup inadvertently causing CVTools to flake.

...i'll be shure to post it tomorrow... i'm not on the computer with the .qtz right now

Thnx for taking the time...

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

You might want to try plugging in another image source in the composition, and then just leave it on for a long time (like a still, a movie, or a rotating cube in a render in image, etc). Also, chopping out parts that utilize the various plugins might help. You also might want to check that any structures aren't gradually increasing and eventually grinding things to a halt (seems unlikely). If you're using a queue or iterator in any of these setups, try backing down on the queue or iteration count, as these can seemingly overtax QC into crashing in some scenarios (still haven't really figured out all the circumstances, just know it happens... I've even been LOGGED OUT of my current User by using high queue counts!)

Now that's ridiculous! What about OSX having protected memory?

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

I think that went out the window with OpenCL... but I'm honestly not 100% sure what "reason" is technically, because when this happens, it never leaves a trace.

Basically, the screen goes blue, and boom, I'm logged out. Logging back in, all my apps are closed and whatever I was working on is screwed.

The ingredients for this usually involve:

-A scene in a render in image. -Probably particle generation. -A queue taking image samples from the render in image. -Sometimes, sampling and holding the structure of the queue, though I don't think that part is necessary. -Queue feeds iterator, which renders each frame from the queue on a sprite or Billboard.

It's not like it happens all the time, but in the compositions that trigger it, it happened pretty reliably when pushing up the queue count, and it's not as if I was seeing crappy performance either, it could be something like increasing a queue/iteration count by 10. It seems like... "memory full, oh, let me log out", to put it simplistically.

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

I wonder if it is to do with GPU not having protected memory and when it goes down it is dragging the whole OS with it (rather than getting a reboot from an OS that is GPU_fail aware) — which is kind of sad really.

I can accept it crashing QC as a fact of life when messing with code but to pull down the whole OS… extreme.

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

...i did the tests and optimised as suggested and it seems the problem is with the Video In part. If i enter the Video In patch after a Render In Image has been working for about 30min i get instant glitch. I don't know if it has something to do with the PCI card or not...most probably it does...

I've read some have used the same card with success...which is not the case with me...before i open the qtz i have to open the Blackmagic Media Express software that came with the card or it just won't give any output in QC even if it's visible as a source in the QC Inspector, and ofcourse i have to shut down the Blackmagic software before i run QC.

any experiences to share on that note?

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

I'm using a decklink Blackmagic card here, and it is flawless. Works as a charm, never had a problem.

What rez. are you piping in ? What mode ? Framerate ? To troubleshoot, make a test QTZ with just the video in, a RII and a billboard. Does it work ?. What's your machine spec ?
Do you have problems with your card and FCP ? (if yes, it's either a driver/os thing or your card has a problem : try on a fresh install, if the problem persists, then change your card )

I personnally never opened the blackmagic media express (i don't even know what it is). These cards are pretty much top notch - you basically can't have a better one.

and just to be sure: you're not using vade's blur inside a RII, are you ? (that might cause problems).

Re: I Need Help : QC crashes with Video In from Blackmagic ...

...as the deadline was too close i just switched to fw input...with a unnoticable time delay it works ok... i'm pretty sure now there's some issue with the card itself...i did an entire overhaul installing to a diff slot and fresh drivers...

i'm driving it on a mac pro with s-video in, 720x576, ntsc/pal mode, no blurs whatsoever, and the RII to Billboard works for 40min...twice as long...but crashes non the less with a completely diff crash report.

thnx again
