Segment Status Colours

Various colour codes are used to identify the cache and render status of timeline segments.

 

dv_note

The colours shown below are the defaults. They can be changed by editing the preference file colour.prefs in the folder :

 

C:\Nucoda\2014_1\root

Cached and Rendered

We mention two types of frames below : cached frames and rendered frames.

Cached

A cache (also known as source cache) is a source sequence that has been cached to our internal format (currently DPX except for float/half float sources). It may be a full size clone (e.g. 1:1 Source Clone, or from R3D, Quicktime or MXF) or a source proxy at 2:1, 3:1 etc.
These caches have no effects applied.</br>

Rendered

A rendered cache is a sequence that has one or more effects applied and has to be rendered.

Colour Coding

Normal

N/A

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-nothing

 

No processing required.

 

No timeline colour means the segment requires no rendering e.g. no applied effects or no source caching/generation needed.

Cached

ch-comp_segment-colour-cached-box

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-cached-and-rendered

 

The first segment above has been cached (and note it has no applied effects). This segment may be a cached MXF source (or some other cacheable media) or a generated proxy (2:1, 3:1 etc.) and is shown in dark green.

Rendered

ch-comp_segment-colour-rendered-box

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-cached-and-rendered

 

The second segment has been rendered (i.e. it has an applied effect) and is shown in lighter-green.

 

dv_note

Note also that the second segment has a lighter colour indicative of an applied effect.

Uncached

ch-comp_segment-colour-uncached-box

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-uncached-and-unrendered

 

The first segment needs caching.

 

This segment may be an MXF source (or other cacheable media) or an ungenerated proxy and is shown in dark red. It has no applied effects.

Unrendered

ch-comp_segment-colour-unrendered-box

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-uncached-and-unrendered

 

The second segment needs rendering.

 

This segment has an applied effect and requires rendering. It is shown in a lighter red.

Caches Missing

ch-comp_segment-colour-caches-missing-box

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-caches-missing

 

Segment has missing caches.

 

Missing caches are shown in yellow. You will be prompted to fix these (which will render them).

Caches Fragmented

ch-comp_segment-colour-caches-frag-box

 

Segment has fragmented caches.

 

ch-comp_segment-colour-caches-frag

 

Fragmented caches are shown in bright red. You will be prompted to fix these (which will re-render them).
