    Well, for at least a year, it seems that iPhones have defaulted to saving as HEIC:

      Thanks for sharing your experience.

      On my most heavily-used machine, the mean interval between bluescreens is just 9.2 days, over a period of about 1.5 years. As I said, I've run a variety of different hardware diags, updated drivers, gotten plenty of OS updates. The frequency would increase and decrease, and sometimes the distribution of different Stop Codes would shift, but there was never much consistency on that last point.

        Are you this charming in person?

        Seriously, when I saw your reply, I thought the exact same thing as what

        dragorth said. If you go through and look at just the products relevant to film & video production, most of them do support Linux, as claimed. It's fair to point out the claim might've simply been poorly worded, even if it was well-intentioned. I try to be fairly meticulous about my English usage, but not everyone is a native speaker.

        It must be a sad, lonely world always to assume the worst about everyone.

          Under Windows you can see it as intended.

          Neither mpv, nor ffplay can display 30bit videos either.
          Thanks for sharing these test images/videos.

            How does that taste?
            That's a research paper dated 2011-12-12, almost 10 years ago! And one of co-authors was from Microsoft Research:
            • Matthias Nie├čner - University of Erlangen-Nuremberg
            • Charles Loop - Microsoft Research
            • Mark Meyer and Tony DeRose - Pixar Animation Studios
            The platform some people use for algorithms research is very different than what the studio uses for its production environment.

            This basically tells us nothing. You are suffering from confirmation bias, where you're searching for any little tidbit to support your point, rather than doing an unbiased survey to see what you can learn about their production environment.

              Right.
              Graphic artists just love Macs, for whatever reason. Even in the days before OS X, when it wouldn't be uncommon for them to crash a couple times per day, Macs were still the mainstay of the content creation industries. I couldn't explain it then, and I can't explain it now.

              It's possible to love Macs and express that love, at least in part, on machines that are not Macs.

              TBH, I don't even really understand why Macs are so popular among developers. Maybe these are the same types of people who buy fancy luxury cars.

                It's very important to have a consistent production environment. For all kinds of reasons, you wouldn't want to have a mix of Ubuntu + Redhat machines, if you could avoid it. Not only do they have different versions of many packages, but there are also differences in how certain packages are built & installed. This creates unnecessary headaches when developing and deploying software, within the organization.

                  Yes, the goalpost did shift, by you. Did you forget this is about HDR on Linux? When has the Cad community cared about that? Notice you chose to take my reply in a way to fit your narrative, rather than in the context I wrote it in. That is on you for shifting the goalpost, or expanding the topic from what I specifically addressed.

                  If we were talking about LibreOffice implementing faster spreadsheet performance by writing OpenCL shaders, and I mentioned Microsoft had done something similar with Excel, you would have replied about Exchange Server and Windows.

                  That was the relevance of your post. And you don't see that, right?

                    I have been a native English speak, as it is my only language, . I just assume people can read the context of the article, the post I replied to and the actual post I wrote. I don't know why, as in my almost 40 years, the internet has consistently proved me wrong about this, but I continue to try and hold people to that higher standard.

                    Thanks for defending me on this, too.
