two ESA rgb matrix effect questions

Post by bergermon » Thu Jul 19, 2012 3:01 pm

Hello
I am using the rgb matrix effect with ESA, my value red which is (1.0,0.0,0.0) in my software is getting interpreted as a Value 162 of 255. I would expect it to be 255. why is that so?
2. my avi is 6 minutes long, if i create a scene it says total time: 1m59s96. Is the number of steps restricted to a certain number? How can I be shure my timing is correct?

I guess the software you are taking the color from is giving you the wrong value. The color picker in the ESA effects generator works fine for me. A good way to test is to open paint, select 255,255,255 and draw on the canvas, then capture the color with the color picker
Is the number of steps restricted to a certain number?
The timing is restricted in ESA, therefore you will need to cut your 6 minute video into 4 pieces or use ESA2/ESAPro
