yay!
17:00
se6astian
again in good old tradition please pm me now if you want to give an update or report on progress
17:02

ok Bertl please go ahead
17:02

hello
17:02
davidak_
i'm still at work..
17:03
se6astian
hi davidak, perfect timing though :)
17:03
Bertl
well, I spent a lot of time during the last two weeks on bringing GSoC to a successful ending
17:04
Bertl
unfortunately one of our students (Champika) was not able to finish his task, but we are happy that the other (Vlad) finished with good results
17:05
Bertl
both projects have been uploaded and archived, so we will see that we can integrate the results in the near future
17:05
Najat
joined the channel
17:05
se6astian
coding ended on August 29, evaluations were due on sept 5th to give some rough outline
17:05
Bertl
I've also spent a lot of time with testing the newest Vivado tool chain with all the new HLx stuff and bugs :)
17:06
Najat
Anyone here?
17:06
se6astian
everyone :)
17:07
Bertl
To put the HLx stuff to good use, I decided to create a memory test to evaluate the DDR bandwidth in the MicroZed
17:07
Najat
Ok
17:07
Bertl
this consists of four configureable AXI reader and writer which connect to the four high performance AXI slave ports
17:08
Bertl
they can be controlled from one of the AXI master ports to set the address and enable/disable them individually
17:08
Bertl
I've tested with several sizes and configurations and the results will be uploaded soon
17:09
Bertl
the quick version is, we can get up to 32Gigabit throughput
17:09
Bertl
which has to be divided between reads and writes
17:10
Bertl
realistically it will be more around 28Gbit because of the overhead and access from the CPU side
17:11
Bertl
I don't want to bore anybody with the new bugs so that's it from my side for today :)
17:11
se6astian
great, thanks
17:11
se6astian
I can give a brief update from felix who cant be here right now
17:12
Najat
Berti what is this all about? Can you summarise in users language so we might help you?
17:12
se6astian
the prototype fund work has officially started with september
17:12
se6astian
felix created this (germn though) summary of the first week: https://paste.fedoraproject.org/paste/sSSzjqiIBrhOeQQ~uYUAmQ
17:12
se6astian
and week to come
17:13
davidak_
yay
17:13
se6astian
in english summary: some setup work, renaming the project to photon-sdi so far
17:14
se6astian
now the next steps are getting familiar with frameworks and hardware design, researching the hardware tools he will soon need
17:14
se6astian
apertus and timevideos.us will share the acquisitions of tools/etc. cost
17:14
se6astian
more news from me later
17:14
se6astian
RexOrCine your turn please
17:16
RexOrCine
Past couple of weeks we've been compiling ABM, or, AXIOM Beta User Guide. It's at 130'ish pages of I'd estimate 170-180. Files can e found here:
17:16
RexOrCine
https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema/beta-documentation
17:17
RexOrCine
The idea is to refine and hone it over the coming weeks and months so if anyone wants to contribute with diagrams or anything please fee free.
17:18
RexOrCine
feel*
17:18
se6astian
proof reading and feedback would also be appreciated I guess
17:18
se6astian
its written in LaTeX and provided as PDF in the end
17:19
RexOrCine
Proof reading might require a working knowledge of the camera and good understanding of respective commands would be advantageous.
17:19
Najat
Fyi nobody reads manual users so this should be a last priority
17:20
se6astian
Najat: its a manual for the developer kit currently
17:20
intrac
:)
17:20
Bertl
Najat: so why don't you tell us what you've done for the apertus and/or the AXIOM project in the last few weeks?
17:21
se6astian
Thanks RexOrCine
17:22
RexOrCine
ABM will be used as a nucleus for other documentation, online and offline, so it'll be used to reformat/improve the camera's Wiki.
17:22
se6astian
some more things from my side, now with gsoc done I will work with vlad in the coming weeks to create an website article about the results of his work
17:22
Najat
I have read all the tasks software and hardware and realized from a filmmakers point of you that this project can go on and on and on for years and maybe remain a project if we dont set milestones and dead lines that are met
17:22
se6astian
also we have been invited to create a guest post on the google open source blog about our gsoc participation
17:23
Bertl
Najat: so you're setting yourself some hard deadlines now?
17:23
se6astian
RexOrCine already cultivated a draft for this when gsoc started so now we just need to integrate the results of the program and give it a final review
17:24
Najat
I believe there are two major things to work on: the casing and the powring with the buttons on the camera. Then experiment with a first software that works and then improve it from there
17:24
se6astian
Team Talk 13.1 is in final editing review stages and should be done soon, article around it as well
17:25
Bertl
Najat: great! looking forward to your report on that on the next meeting!
17:25
se6astian
I have been mostly working on pick and place software improvements recently and designing CAD models and 3d printing parts for the pick and place machine, PCB holders, component trays, etc.
17:25
Najat
Thats my reprot. So question when are those 3 tasks going to be ready?
17:26
Bertl
Najat: probably depends on how much time you can spend on them.
17:27
RexOrCine
Did Michael give you any indication of when the drawings would be done?
17:27
RexOrCine
@se6astian.
17:27
Najat
A coach doesnt play but he makes sure things get done. So who is working on those?
17:27
Bertl
Najat: so you think you're the coach here?

How many Heads of HR have we got?
17:28
se6astian
RexOrCine which drawings did michaelh work on?
17:28
Najat
I dont thin anything yet i am still evaluating if this project is gonna get done or if people are just to keep on creating new tasks to prevent it?
17:28
RexOrCine
He was doing new CAD projections I thought.
17:28
Bertl
RexOrCine: reminds me of the infamous hydra :)
17:29
se6astian
michael sent me first test renderings of the new full enclosure yesterday
17:29
RexOrCine
Class.
17:29
se6astian
we did not get to meet and discuss them yet though
17:29
se6astian
from my POV they look great :)
17:29
se6astian
not sure if he is OK with sharing them yet but I am sure we will have something to show soon
17:29
RexOrCine
Has he left the lenses out of the picture?
17:30
se6astian
yes
17:30
Najat
Ok bye for now everyone
17:30
RexOrCine
I'm gonna try Cooke. See if we can get some dialogue going them.
17:30
se6astian
intrac: please a closing statement
17:30
intrac
yep, just a quick update on the film opening logo
17:31
intrac
I came up with a concept a few weeks back and some animation notes
17:31
intrac
one key requirement is to make it fairly short - around 5 seconds or so
17:31
intrac
since the logo isn't quite the same as a primary studio logo (eg MGM/Universal style)
17:31
intrac
early tests:
17:31
intrac
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx9E_hC7xaUabmU3OG1PbS1Xenc/view
17:32
intrac
transition notes: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bx9E_hC7xaUaWUJBRnRGek1oem8/view
17:32
intrac
I've since gone down a few blind alleys on the animation
17:32
RexOrCine
Ooh wow.
17:32
intrac
the transitions can easily get too complex and take too much time
17:32
Bertl
nice
17:33
intrac
the first three frames need to happen in about 2 or 3 seconds
17:33
Bertl
one input here, from the third picture, where you have the lines around the 'o'
17:33
Bertl
I think it would look cool if the lines rotated 'creating' the rest of the text in a sweep
17:34
intrac
oh yep, I can give that a try
17:34
Bertl
(can still be fading in though)

intrac
the early idea was that they could fade towards the centre with the orange glow
17:35
Najat
left the channel
17:35
intrac
as soon as the 'O' appears, they shoot out from the centre quickly
17:35
intrac
but I'll try a few things
17:35
se6astian|away
changed nick to: se6astian
17:35
Bertl
okay, let us know when you have something to look at
17:35
intrac
will do
17:35
Bertl
tx
17:36
intrac
and that's all from me :)
17:36
RexOrCine
Looks really nice from the screens, well played.
17:36
se6astian

17:36
Bertl
yeah, professional
17:36
intrac
thanks
17:37
se6astian
befoer we conclude todays meeting
17:37
se6astian
I want to direct attention again at this task: https://lab.apertus.org/T737
17:37
se6astian
it covers qemu beta firmware emulation and automated firmware building
17:37
se6astian
unfortunately this task fell asleep at the beginning of august
17:38
se6astian
can you revive it? :)
17:39
se6astian

17:39

hi Sebastian
19:56
niculescu_vlad
I've just received your email
19:56
se6astian
great
19:59
niculescu_vlad
The problem is, this week is full for me. Tomorrow I will go with my father at doctor in a city at 240km far from mine so I will be driving the entire day. On Wednesday I will travel to Switzerland because I will move there for master, so I will be driving for two days. The earliest time I can start working is Saturday morning
20:00
niculescu_vlad
But, I think I can finish it in one day
20:01
se6astian
no problem, lets target release in two weeks then
20:01
se6astian
and create it in the next week if that works better for you
20:01
niculescu_vlad
Sure. This is great. I will try to finish the first revision by the end of the weekend
20:04
se6astian
ok great
20:06
se6astian
let me know if you have any questions or need help
20:06
niculescu_vlad
I will use the text from the documentation. Bertl told me to structure it like a story and I worked a lot on it, receiving continuous feedback from Bertl within a week
20:07
se6astian
great
20:07
se6astian
RexOrCine can review it as he is a native speaker before we publish it
20:07
niculescu_vlad
He has already reviewed it
20:08
niculescu_vlad
I asked him for help before the final ev
20:08
se6astian
