Now that the slowness in the UI has been addressed, I have two small issues running latest UB19 static user builds on Pop!_OS 19.10:

1. I don't see PulseAudio among Audio Driver option in PlayBack settings, and sound output does not work using "default" output, only if I pick one of the sound devices. But then changing the volume using the system does't affect CinGG, it always play with the same level. Using the latest static Arch build on Manjaro works tho, so I guess it is something related to Pop_OS/Ubuntu.

 

2. Enabling vaapi in "Use HW Device" in Performance section causes an error when loading JPG and PNG images (it works if I disable temporary "ffmpeg first" in program window), the error I see in terminal is:

1. Ubuntu19 is not LTS and so has been just built for use when it was requested so when Pulse Audio became available the standard Operating Systems used for builds had another library loaded in conjunction.  Ubuntu19 was only on a SanDisk and not upgraded.  Anyway, gg added Pulse Audio and created a static tar which now includes it and you will see it as available in Settings->Preferences, Playback A.  It is at:

  https://www.cinelerra-gg.org/download/testing/cinelerra-5.1-ub19-x86_64-static.txz

The good news is that more improvements to the "line drawing" are included in this tar also.  The previous tar is still available in case the line drawing has problems -- hopefully, audio waveforms will be slightly better when drawing but we are not sure if this is true.

 

2. Your vaapi driver is at 1.5.0.  Mine is at 1.6.0 and png's load correctly (not black blobs) as a fallback with "use ffmpeg first".  I do not know if the level of the driver is the cause of this problem.  I did note that in the previous UI/UX speed problem, MatN stated that it also loaded OK for him.  However, there is some debug you can turn on to help us determine if there is some problem that we might be able to workaround.  For debugging problems, modify in the Cinelerra ffmpeg subdirectory, the file:    decode.opts     by temporarily changing the line from "loglevel =fatal"  to "loglevel =verbose" and restarting Cinelerra from a terminal window where a lot of messages will be shown.  Let us know what these are.

The "err: Invalid argument" that you are showing is strange as it says it is " using SW decode" so should work.  Will wait for more information.

Great! PulseAudio works as expected in the testing build. Alsa still does not work using the "default" output, but as PulseAudio works (with system volume), and you said that non LTS versions aren't officially supported, than I guess it is not important. Just for the record, the error that is shown when I try to play something in the timeline with Alsa set to default:

For some reason, now PNG works with the latest UB19 testing builds, as well as some JPGs. The one I used for the slow UI bug report still doesn't work, but as PNG works now I tested with another JPG and CingGG showed a warning about the dimensions but displayed it correctly. This is the log when I tried to load the problematic JPG and some other PNG:

Last but not least, I also saw a little improvement with the wave forms with the new version. Amazing!

 

Thanks a lot for the working PulseAudio version!

Hello!

I just wanted to report that the latest ub20 build from 20200531 (non-static) works very well on Pop!_OS 20.04 (based on focal fossa): ALSA sound output works fine, as well as importing images (both PNG and JPG in my tests) even with VAAPI enabled. I am still trying to get used to Cinelerra GG since it is so powerful, but still have some issues with the workflow, hopefully it will improve after some more time using it. Thanks again for all the replies I got here.

 

Regards,

LFOM
