Thanks, IOhannes ! Didn't know that method.
That's more verbose alright ;-)


verbose(3): [GEM:filmGMERLIN:track] No video decoder found for fourcc 
ULY0 (0x554c5930)
verbose(4): [GEM:filmGMERLIN] track 0 does not contain a video-stream: 
Pixelformat not specified for video frame
[pix_film]: loaded file: /home/oliver/flatterstreifen_ut.avi with 299 
frames (640x480) at 25.000000 fps
frames: 299 640 480 25
Pd: signal 6


so i guess that means filmGMERLIN can't decode "UT" natively, right ?

anything i could do about it ? i can't seem to find "UT" as a seperate 
installable binary for Linux. It's just part of ffmpeg's codecs i guess.

Anyway, here's my full pd.log, in case it helps:


Are there any recommendations for lossless or high quality codecs with 
GEM (preferably also with Alpha channel support) ?

Thanks for all info !
