Topic: Image on screen smaller than anticipated
I made a DCP using OpenDCP from a 24 fps video file rendered in Sony Vegas 9e. Yesterday morning I managed to test it in a movie theatre and it worked.
The only problem was that the image on the screen was a good deal smaller than I expected - approximately 8' x 6' (or less) on a screen that was about 24' wide.
When I rendered the 2048 x 1152 video to a TIFF sequence in Sony Vegas, there were no options for setting the 16 bit file preference so I suspect it was rendered as 8 bit. Do you suppose that's why my DCP didn't cover more of the screen?
The projectionist said the sizing was in the "DCP's instructions".
I have to say that my test DCP, although smaller than expected, really looked great - better than the original video on my computer - and the sound was terrific. I am really impressed with OpenDCP.
Any suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated.
