    Digital Cut stops without error

    Avid MC 8.5.1
    HP z420 | 16GB Ram
    Nitris DX I/O
    Facilis Terrablock via 8gb Fiber

     

    I am not sure if this is a bug or a setting somewhere but my digital cut stops with out warning or error if I switch to a different program. 

    i.e. Digital Cut Tool is outputting to tape and then I click on another program down in the taskbar (in this case visio) and then my digital cut just stops.

    In previous version I was able to work on something else while I am cutting to tape. 

    Here are the settings I currently see on my digital cut tool 

    • Stop on dropped frames
    • Digital cut safe mode
    • Object mode: real time
    • Bit Depth: 8-but
    • Add black at tail
    • Assemble Edit
    • Out to DigiBeta on a Sony DVW-500

    Not sure why 8.5.1 but itsnever never good to do anything else while digital cut is running.

    Sit back and watch the playout is best.

    Switching to a different app can and will change the resources available to MC as it will become a background unfocused application. Not great to ensuring consistent frame output.

    Yeah, I never do this. I've always felt this was one of the last chances to do QC.

    No offense, but, I wasn't asking for an opinion on workflow - I know it's never a good idea to switch windows while cutting to tape and I also know that it's a last chance to check the content going to the tape. Regardless, I was simply stating something I've noticed with the newest version of MC that wasn't something on the previous versions. 

    I do appreciate the replies, though!

    LoL

    I'd add to this that the very fact that you are reported in inexplicable change in behavior from one version of MC to the next is cause for the developers to take notice. I say inexplicable as just an educated guess that the developers did not intentionally change this behavior.

    Patrick -

    Did you ever find a solution to this?

    I have a customer with a very similar issue.
