Testing Media

I'm having a bunch of custom media created and encoded for an event this weekend and want to validate that the files are encoded correctly (as their is a slight language barrier between the content creators and myself) -- Is there any 100% way to test the media without a DL.2 in front of me?

    Hi,
    About half way down the page there are some utilities that can help you
    check footage is encoded correctly.

    One thing to make sure is that the your fixtures have the most current software which for a DL2 and your CMA is located here
    http://www.highend.com/support/digital_lighting/DL2andAxonSoftwareUpgrades.asp

    Older or mixed versions of CMA and DL2 software don't make it any easier to upload content to the fixtures.
    Would be a nice touch if the CMA worked offline and could tell you if your content was encoded correctly.

    Best C

    i needed something to work on today, so i've cranked out a small utility that will run a folder of content through CMA's analyzer, without an active to-fixture file copying process.

    of course, i first had to get CMA to quit crashing horribly on x64, so i'm gonna put that out there, too.

    these exe's need to live in the CMA program files folder, and MediaFileChecker requires the 3.5 version of Microsoft .NET Framework.
