  1. Hi Igor, I can't speak for others but 4K blu-ray output is not something I would use in PTE. Streaming video is much more convenient if you have high speed internet ( >= 5 Mbps) or a modern HDTV or other video device with USB MP4 input. I would like to use AV1 output and AVIF input in future versions of PTE when it becomes popular. Thanks, Tom
  2. Samsung and Oppo are no longer selling Blu-Ray players (in the US at least). Even movie theaters have declining ticket sales due to faster home streaming and larger HDTVs. Also most (if not all) new HDTVs can stream MP4 from USB input. https://www.engadget.com/2019/02/16/samsung-exits-blu-ray-players-in-us/ https://www.engadget.com/2018/04/03/oppo-uhd-blu-ray/ Tom
  3. Hi, Welcome to the forum. That monitor looks great. Curved panel, 21:9 aspect ratio, usb-c connector. So many monitor options available now. Thanks, Tom
  4. Igor, Thanks for the information. Still doing research. Some of the BenQ monitors look interesting and are flicker free. Tom
  5. I think you are right. There are 4K 10 bit monitors, but without video HDR support. I like this AOC monitor. If I buy a monitor now I will try to by one that will be compatible for at least 3 years in the future. It is not true 10 bit because it is 8 bit with temporal dithering. https://www.amazon.com/AOC-Q3277FQE-32-Inch-2560x1440-Mountable/dp/B01N8ZIWM3/ In the future if AV1 becomes the common video format then maybe AVIF will also become popular. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AV1#AV1_Image_File_Format_(AVIF) I realize there are other licensed formats like HEVC/HEIC/HEIF that require additional software installed at least on Windows 10. Thanks, Tom
  6. Is 10 bit HDR something I should consider in my next monitor? Thanks, Tom
  7. I will definitely buy a faster computer monitor next time. There are so many options now. 4K, refresh rate, response time, HDR, Freesync/G-Sync, IPS, ... Thanks, Tom
  8. I have always used a 60 Hz LCD monitor with PTE. If the GPU and the monitor are capable of higher refresh rates or variable refresh rate (g-sync or freesync) will PTE operate at other than 60 Hz refresh rates? Is there a noticeable difference in pans, zooms, or transitions? Thanks, Tom
  9. Hi Lin, I have never experimented with VisiSketch Pro. Video mask sounds interesting. Thanks, Tom
  10. Hi Lin, Very nice. I think I might have enough patience to create a spray painted version, without so many keyframes. Thanks, Tom
  11. Maybe this will help. I can't verify it will but users seem to give it positive feedback. It looks like you have already changed the manifest file so maybe this will not help. https://www.danantonielli.com/adobe-app-scaling-on-high-dpi-displays-fix/ Tom
  12. Flash had great blending modes 10+ years ago. Tom
  13. My limit is one hour. Even then it had better be narrated by David Attenborough to keep my interest. Tom
  14. Possibly something for PTE 10 or higher version with powerful graphics card. If an image is 1920 x 1080 then there are 2,073,600 individual pixels. I did a quick test and I can select an individual pixel by zooming to x1920 (192000%) using the Framing option S=192000 in Objects and Animation. The X and Y Framing option would require more precision to accurately pan the image (like we already have for Pan). I don't think I want to spend the time modifying each pixel but a computer program could possibly generate the PTE source code. Also depending on the complexity of pixel manipulation the source code could be very large (> 100 MB). Assuming your graphics card is powerful enough then possible uses include simulated ray tracing, particle effects, image warping, image morphing, etc. Attached slideshow has single color pixel in each corner of image. Thanks, Tom pixel_test.zip
  15. Hi Lin, Cool. It reminds me of your graphics card test slideshow from a few years ago. Now we have a 3D version. Thanks, Tom
