  1. This is 100% in the source. This attachment is a screenshot, not a photo, and you can easily see the concentric curves of bands from dark to light. If you zoom in past 100% in Photoshop or another image viewer, you can clearing see what is going on. The codec uses a limited number of colors and uses a dot pattern to dither the transitions.
  2. Link and timestamps to the videos in question, please? The VG248QG is a native 6-bit display, so that can cause visible banding in gradients. However, dithering results in very fine transitions, unlike the blockiness that you are showing. The blockiness is very characteristic of the macroblock compression used by many video codecs.
  3. Have you confirmed that you are in 8BPC depth or higher? The banding is either in the source video or your monitor settings. Hardware color banding does not look like this.
  4. Yes, that's banding, but it's from compression in the cutscene, not your monitor.
  5. I'll let others chime in about specific cameras, as I am not the most acquainted with that segment of the market. In general, the DSLR form factor is going to be unnecessarily bulky compared to mirrorless options if you are going to use them exclusively for video. You will also lack useful features like multi-axis in body stabilization and precise shutter speed control. Canon's dual pixel AF is quite good, but I don't have any experience with how well it works on lower end models. Sony is generally going to be on the top of the list for video, but I would like look at options from Fuji, Panasonic and Olympus. Edit: after reading more about the 250d, I can confidently say that this camera is absolutely not fit for purpose if you intend to use it for 4k video. Dual-pixel AF does not work in 4k, which will render it useless in practice. You will also need to deal with the 2.6x effective crop factor in 4k mode. Definitely get something else.
  6. If your goal is video, get the STM lens. That's what it's made for. Have you fully researched the market though? Canon is a pretty bad value proposition for video, especially on the low end of the market.
  7. Read the current priority and use a conditional statement to switch to the other condition. set processName=ScpService.exe set "WMIC_CMD=wmic process where name^='%processName%' get /format:list ^| findstr Priority" for /f "tokens=1* delims==" %%A in ('%WMIC_CMD%') do set priority=%%B if %priority% == 8 ( wmic process where name^="%processName%" CALL setpriority "high priority" ) else ( wmic process where name^="%processName%" CALL setpriority "normal" )
  8. These are incompatible with each other. Kaby Lake requires a 100 or 200 series chipset.
  9. At normal listening volumes, the amp will be drawing approximately 10W max. 200W RMS is the maximum that the amp can output, which is with everything cranked to max. Power usage is halved with every 3dB reduction in volume, so by the time that you are 10dB down from max output, your power draw is 10% of the max output (or 20W). ±10dB is roughly half or double the perceived loudness, so it's highly unlikely that you are normally listening at 10dB from max. Typically, 1W per speaker is more than sufficient in a smallish room.
  10. Try reseating your cooler. Idle power usage looks fine.
  11. Scroll down from your second screenshot and look for Powers > Package.
  12. 10% is not idle. How many watts are you consuming while "idling"?
  13. Does anyone have any tips to replicate a Street View transition effect in Premiere? I am creating a guided video tour from a series of static 360° shots. The standard zoom (scaling with motion blur) transition works, but it's not quite the same experience as on Street View, which gives a fairly realistic effect of traveling through space.
  14. Unfortunately, no monitor uses nearest neighbor scaling, so it doesn't matter that 2160p is a perfect integer multiple of 1080p. Due to bilinear interpolation, 1080p content on a 4K display will look worse than it would on a native 1080p display.
  15. It actually does. Blue LEDs were not commercially viable until the early 1990's, while red LEDs were available well before then. This is due to the much shorter wavelength of blue light, and requires a different manufacturing process. Whether this has a significant impact on the lifespan on modern LEDs is unknown to me, but there is a scientific basis for this claim. https://spectrum.ieee.org/semiconductors/optoelectronics/the-leds-dark-secret
