Slow Loading RAW files in Cinema DNG format

PostSun Dec 03, 2017 3:58 pm

Considering getting a Blackmagic camera so I can use RAW files in Cinnema DNG format. So I dowloaded some files from this site to give it a test drive;

https://nofilmschool.com/2012/08/blackm ... r-download

Problem is they are ungodly slow to load on my time line. I checked my system performance as loading and it's;

CPU 12%
SSD Drive 4%
GPU 2%

System is I7-6800 with AsRock Extreme 4 MB and AMP R9-290X video card. Windows 10.

Every other file type works perfectly.

Any Suggestions?

I had no problems with Shot 1 here, running an i7 2500K/GTX 1070.

What exactly do you mean by "slow to load"?

Files appear as empty boxes for several minutes.

That's not normal. At least not with nVidia hardware.

Fixed. Simply uninstalling and reinstalling did not work. I had to uninstall and then delete all directories associated with resolve and then reinstall to fix.

Problem came back, but I got it fixed. Turned out I have to run in windows 7 compatability mode.

You shouldn't have to. I don't.

I have since switched back to Windows 10 and it continues to run perfectly. So in summary, I don't know what caused the problem.
