Known Issues

  • Nvidia RTX and other Turing-generation GPU boards no longer support interlace H.264 encoding. This applies to all versions of any Cinegy software supporting GPU encoding and is a hardware limitation of the Nvidia boards. Pascal and earlier boards are not affected. If using GPU accelerated Nvidia features, please be careful to match your settings to the capabilities of your board. Cinegy Playout provides Pseudo Interlace mode to overcome these limitation, but please be aware this may only be compatible with other Cinegy software.

  • Cinegy Playout engine crashes during high GPU load are registered when using latest NVIDIA driver version. The recommended driver version is Quadro Desktop Driver Release 430 (ODE) versions NVIDIA driver.

  • The EAS Gateway and Prompter applications are missing some packages inside the support folder. Please install Cinegy Air control application on any machine needing these applications first, then install these applications via the MSI packages instead of using the setup.exe program file.

  • Some JPEG2000 OP1A files will fail to read correctly, and will not proxy. JPEG2000 support should be considered experimental at this time.

  • AAC audio in Cinegy Air control application preview is distorted in some cases.
