haha seems like I would prefer somerone else to make it xD

@basisbit
more than 10 hours of work per song for the first few times.

@peshti87_twitter
so i's not hard?
basisbit
@basisbit
@bohning what is currently the best place to download a somewhat recent version of UltraStar Creator?
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
just time consuming?
Markus Böhning
@bohning
for me, the (impossible) part is to set the pitches, the rest is more or less just time consuming
basisbit
@basisbit
@peshti87_twitter if you are rather good at guessing syllable/tone pitches / heights, then it is not really hard, just takes some time to make the result good
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
I see
basisbit
@basisbit
guessing the tone pitches requires some basic knowledgeabout music theory
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
so is ultrastar creator all I need except mp3 and video?
and well lyrics
Markus Böhning
@bohning
basically yes. Creator helps you distribute the syllables to roughly the position in the song and creates a UltraStar compatible song file from this. This can subsequently be finetuned in either USDX or YASS
basisbit
@basisbit
ultrastar creator helps you with getting the first draft of the text and syllable positions. After that, you can use the integrated editor from UltraStar Deluxe or UltraStar Play or YASS (whatever you like most) to set the correct tone hights/pitches and fine-tune the syllable positions
Markus Böhning
@bohning
Creator will help you splitting the lyrics in Syllables for English, German and French songs (there’s a little button) beneath the lyrics field, for other languages you have to split the lyrics into syllables yourself (put a „+“ sign between syllables)
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
there is an editor in ultrastar deluxe?
didn't know that
Markus Böhning
@bohning
yes, press „E“ when the song is selected
press TAB to display help / keystrokes
basisbit
@basisbit
(in a current version of UltraStar Deluxe)
Markus Böhning
@bohning
(Peshitwar shouldn’t be using any version of USDX that doesn’t have the TAB/help feature ;-))
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
haha to be honest
Idk what version I have
I have been in a middle of a move
and I turned on this pc like last week
again
yeah I seem to have the editor
so how do I save it?
Markus Böhning
@bohning
press S
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
after the edit is done
Peshtiwar Botani
@peshti87_twitter
um what am I doing wrong?
I'm in ultrastar creator and it doesn'te ven play the track

@Csani71_twitter could you please test the macOS build from here: https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/USDX/releases/tag/v2020.4.0

Thanks. Where do I feed back, or even open tickets about issues?

basisbit
@basisbit
Open that website again. Klick on Issues. There you go.

Is anybody else having problems smoothly playing AV01-encoded video files? They have a considerably lower file size while maintaining similar video quality, that’s why I would like to used AV01 videos when they are available (newer videos on Youtube). However, the render USDX more or less unusable (unresponsive) atm

basisbit
@basisbit
You'll need at least ffmpeg 4.2 for somewhat decend AV1 decoding performance. Also, AV1 decoding is done in CPU, there is no hardware decoder for it built in common end user graphics cards.
you could try h265 instead, if your GPU has hardware decoding for that.
Markus Böhning
@bohning
Ah, I see. So while I have ffmpeg 4.2.3_1, it will still be decoded using the CPU (which seems to be inadequate). I’m not talking about re-encoding, but about videos that already come AV01-encoded (or where I could choose between H264 and AV01, as in the above screenshot).
Okay, so this would only make sense when end user graphics cards include a hardware decover for AV01?
basisbit
@basisbit
well, there is this ongoing fight between openly licensed video codecs + mostly patent free (VP8, VP9, AV1) versus proprietary video codecs with strict licensing + patents (H264, H265). Usually, the graphics card manufacturers add hardware encoder + decoder for the proprietary codecs to the hardware quite quickly. For the open codecs, the hardware manufacturers seem to not put much effort into it.
Markus Böhning
@bohning
I see, thanks for the explanation
Markus Böhning
@bohning
Anybody on here who’s an expert with CI/AppVeyor?

@Defunkt_gitlab
Does USDX understand when #MP3 and #VIDEO point to the same MP4 and optimize with a single play call?
basisbit
@basisbit
same file for #MP3 and #VIDEO does work. The media files will be parsed twice - (on windows) once the audio stream by bass, and once the video stream by ffmpeg. Your OS will cache the file, so that should be no problem unless you use network shares. If you use network shares, the simple solution is: do not use network shares.
Defunkt
@Defunkt_gitlab
Roger, thanks.

@bohning

Currently, I receive the following error when trying to compile USDX on Mac:

avutil.pas(81,4) Error: User defined: Linked version of libavutil is not yet supported!
