635e IPP jerky preview

#1
When I enable IPP for display preview of MPEG-2 video is jerky. It looks like VR may only be displaying every second frame. If I hold down the right arrow instead of using preview motion is smooth.

Turning IPP off and restarting VR produces smooth play during preview.

Do me a favor can you try completely uninstalling and reinstalling VideoReDo and see if it makes any difference? (also delete any files left over in the install directory before the reinstall) It seems that other users are having similar problems and reinstalling seems to fix them, so I'm wondering if that might the case here as well.

If you don't want to lose your settings then you can try the hack DanR describes here...

to temporarily force VRD to look in a different registry location for settings. If that does fix then problem then it is one of your settings causing the problem.

I exported, then deleted the entire HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DRD Systems branch and the problem was solved.

A bit more digging and it turns out that, at least on my PC, I can cause the picture to become jerky again by changing the video brightness (View > Change Display Properties). Once I do this, IPP display becomes jerky. Any non-zero value in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DRD Systems\VideoReDo-TVSuite4\PlaybackDeviceOptions\Brightness causes it. An interesting thing I noticed is that when using VR to adjust the brightness the inital movement of the slider causes the clip shown in VR to step off the currently shown frame.

The behaviour remains the same even on a clean install of 635e (reg keys removed, directories removed etc).

That's great information. We will look into the brightness setting and get it fixed for the next release.

Can you:
1) Post the Tools>Show Program Info.
2) The video settings on the Tools>Options>Playback page.
3) Which OS (is Aero on?).
4) CPU and speed.

Yes, it does. Will look into this.

Thanks.

Do me a favor and change the driver on Tools>Options>Devices from VMR9 to DirectX. When you open a video Aero will disappear but I'm curious to know if this makes a difference with the stuttering. Aero will re-appear when you close VideoReDo.

I changed VR to direct-x display but it only showed a black pane from then on (also tried disabling yuv acceleration but didn't help with the black pane) and aero remained in effect with VR open. Manually configuring Windows with a non-aero theme allowed VR to display the clip in direct-x mode, but the stutter / jerky problem was still present.
