Error m5 means that there's a word or phrase in the message which is blocked by our anti-spam filters.

It won't tell you which word of course, as that would make it easy for spammers to circumvent the filter.

A CODEC name perhaps? I've a question about rendering time with different footage types, but there's no spam in it.

Maybe I could try pasting it one word per message to see which CODEC name it considers spam?

Paste the entire thing and remove sections bit by bit. It'll just keep rejecting you until the word(s) in question are removed.

I noticed something really curious (and a bit unexpected) with regard to the render out to DVD MPEG2 of various timeline formats.

I did some benchmarks and found that long longGOP MPEG source footage renders out four times faster than  PR 422 footage.

My sources are XDC  and Samurai.

Set up two identical 23.976fps 1080P timelines. Put 2 minutes of XDC  on one, and 2 minutes of PR 422 on the other. Add a adjustment layer to both and add the following effects: Fast color corrector, Sharpen, Timecode.

Render to MPEG2 (DVD settings, 720x480, 2 pass, highest quality, 10-bit intra).

The XDC  timeline renders in 1 minute. The PR 422 takes 4 minutes.

Looking at GPU load while this is happening, I see that the XDC timeline is using over 90% GPU, while the PR 422 timeline is using only 23% GPU. Obviously, this probably accounts for the 4:1 speed difference in rendering these two timelines, but I'd like to know why this is, and if there is anything I can do to boost the performance and utilize the GPU better when rendering PR 422 footage.

Any TGs have an idea as to why input formats have such a drastic effect on output render times? I would have expected a simple format like PR to render quicker than a complex long GOP format like MPEG. Something else must be a factor. But what could that be?

It's absolutely nuts that I have to troubleshoot the forum posts for such inocuous words commonly found in technical discussions. The forum system should be there to HELP not to frustrate the members.

For about a year we have been flooded with spam posts from India (hundreds every day!) offering "spiritual" services, rendering these forums unusable.  There was no other way of stopping these floods than by blocking certain words.  Sorry you fell into that trap!

Geeze... so the spammers used that G word (the one that refers to someone who's a master of something) and that was preventing me from posting all night last night.

Why not just block the whole IP block of the offending country? That's what I did when I was having problems. No spam anymore.

The problem with that is that most of Adobe's Support operation is located there...

These days most spam is sent from distributed networks that span several countries. Given the site is part of Adobe's official customer support platform, it's both technically and politically impossible to subnet out an entire continent.

The world filters are kept under review and only used as a last resort, but as Pat says given the amount of spam using that particular word that's been flung at the site in the past 6 months, it's something we're stuck with for a while yet.

Amazing. But I wish there were some way for legit users to avoid this easy trap. Lots of experts in graphics are referred to by that 'g-word'. Blocking proper nouns like the names of certain MLMs makes sense, but words that are almost generic, well, a lot of people can inadvertently use them and not understand why the post is stuck in limbo.

Because you can't afford to lose potential clients/customers from a country with 1.5 billion people.  Business always comes first.
