AutoDesk Smoke :: Deleting Media From Another Project

Jul 4, 2013

This is similar to something I have asked for before regarding managing media in remote/networked machines. But I can't find a way to delete media (individual clips or folders) from a nother project within my machine without switching to/loading up that project. At present in 2012 and as far back as I can remember I have had the ability to move and manage media withing other projects on the host machine as well as remote/networked machine.
Is there a button/preference I'm missing as this is integral to the workflow I use.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Reopen Project - Takes Several Time To Load The Clips

Mar 13, 2013

each time I force quit Smoke with the service monitor in a project when I open the same project after it takes several time to load the clips (EDITDESK: LOADING CLIPS). Sometimes the project just didn't open and stay on the EDITDESK: LOADING CLIPS screen.

There's something I'm doing wrong or my project is totally corrupt ?

AutoDesk Smoke :: Cannot Successfully Import Clips Via Gateway Import

Jan 21, 2012

I can tell you cannot Gateway Import from a drive that is Read-Only. The clip seems to work, it just says pending render, of course when you import a large number of files it always says pending render. Unfortunately it never actually finishes pending render, and will list as failed in Backburner.

So you can for instance think you have relinked an entire timeline and start doing a fair amount of work on it, but you will then be unable to send this large timeline to your flame like you think.

There is no god damned reason it should allow you to gateway import something that you cannot actually gateway import. All it would need to do is check if the drive is read only before it does it and give you an error message IN THE APPLICATION. Rather than everything looking fine, but then making you go tease the meaning out of this from backburner:

smk001 1896942624 swBIOSubJobServer.C:298 01/21/12:18:14:05.450 1896942624 swBIOAdapter.C:403 01/21/12:18:14:06.504 Cannot process tasks 0... in /var/tmp/WireJob/SubJob0.

Read-only file system on processing S+W server..The fact that the color correct house had randomly given me an NTFS drive this time didn't occur to me for quite awhile, since the last two were both macOS.

AutoDesk Smoke :: XML Import From FCP - Unlinked Media

Aug 25, 2011

I've been trying to import a XML from FCP (xml version 2), bun everytime I only get a timeline with unlinked media...

I placed the XML one directory above my media. But when I drag the XML into my library (having Store Local Copy turned on), I only get the "empty" timeline...

When I try to relink my media from the gateway, it's not relinking anything (it says, no video and audio found). Is there no way to import an XML without having to import the original media into my library? Also, no matter what kind of clip I'm importing, it always soft imports my clips, although store local copy is turned on...

Attached is a picture with the settings for my xml import (and on top the unlinked xml, which says SOFT, although, as you can see on the bottom of the screen store local copy is enabled).

AutoDesk Smoke :: SMAC And FCP On Same System?

Jun 13, 2011

Have FCP Studio and/or Adobe production bundle running on the same system as your Smoke? If you do what issues do you have? I've heard that you should be able to run all 3 on the same system, maybe not at the same time and that's fine, but I've heard others say to go the old route and keep your Smoke system as just a Smoke system. We are currently in the process of racking our system up and will be starting to learn the system very soon but I've been wondering if there are down sides to including other software on the system.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Import Media - Audio And Video Locked

Dec 5, 2013

New update seems to have caused any QT with audio and video to be locked if I lift the video, it'll lift the audio, or if I apply an effect to audio, the video becomes unrendered, where previously it wasn't. Used to be able to modify or edit without V&A locked together.....

AutoDesk Smoke :: Restore Linux Archive On SMac?

Aug 13, 2012

Easiest way to restore a Smoke Linux archive using Smoke on Mac 2012. The archive was saved to an external USB drive that I assume is Linux Ext-2 or Ext-3.

Mounting the drive on the Mac is the challenge. I've read that using an open source program like MacFuse may be an option. Does Autodesk provide a Mac utility for doing this?

Sep 19, 2012

Whenever we try to import video clips they show up as all black. The length of the video is there, so it might be 15 minutes of black. But no matter what video (Sony, Red, etc.) it's all the same.

We're running pre-release 3 on the latest iMac. As far as we know the graphics card is compatible.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Removing Whole Project - Random Folder(s) Still In Media Storage Folder

Aug 22, 2012

Not sure if it's a bug or not but when removing a whole project the "random" folder(s) are still in the Media Storage folder. Everything connected to the project(s) are gone but not the random folder smoke creates when creating project files. Any specific reason their still in the Media Storage folder?

Im a bit of a neat-freak... After removing a whole project, is it safe to remove all the empty folders? Or would that cause problems for other projects?

AutoDesk Smoke :: 2013 Transfer Project To New Installation?

Jan 2, 2013

First: I ordered the Smoke 2013 (floating-)licence through a german reseller a week ago and I still got no answer. Is this a normal "new years eve" delay?

Second: The Smoke installation is on a computer that's OS was actually cloned from another computer. The HostName, LocalHostName and ComputerName were changed, but Backburner still insists in using the "original" name given at the OS-Installation. So if the other "clone-computer" is running, Backburner gets in trouble and is stuck on waiting. During the troubleshooting process I turned on websharing to access [URL] ..... This led to the result, that anytime i restart the machine the computername is changed to and the backburner wount work. No way, yet, to bring this back to normal.

Third: Waiting for the smoke-licence I already begun working on the project. Now it seems that I'll have to do a clean install of the system to get it finally running. But I do not want to loose the work so far. Is there a way to bring the actual project back into an new installation of OS/Smoke without having to archive it which does not work at the moment?

AutoDesk Smoke :: Can't Dissolve Between Two Clips

Oct 25, 2011

I'm trying to add a dissolve on the timeline between two clips as I have many times before and one of them will not allow me to dissolve to or from it. It won't allow any dissolves at all actually.

Both are 1920x1080 10bit clips rendered out of action. Any attempts to put a dissolve on the cut ends up with it being only on the end-tag (the second clip). If it tell it to be centered it puts a one frame dissolve on the end-tag. If i tell it Up To Cut it does nothing. From Cut works as expected.

AutoDesk Smoke :: Resize Filter On All Media

Oct 3, 2012

Working in Smoke 2013 pre-trial v3, and I've been wondering why every clip I import has the resize filter? Every video and graphic in the XML has a resize filter even though they are they same aspect ratio as the sequence. I've tried this with a NTSC and 1080i sequence and they've both had the same issues. I even imported a clip through the media hub and I had the same result. When I look at the clip in Final Cut, it is the same setting as the sequence so I don't have to render. In Smoke, I enter the resize editor and I don't see any resizing.
