    Sequence too big to save bin

    I've run into this issue in the past, where your showbuild is so big you can't save the bin and you're forced to split the sequence up.

    We're running into this on my current show and here's what our tech guys say:

     

    The bin saving problem we're having is caused by too many cameras and too much audio in the groups. Any time even one track of a group is laid into a timeline, it references back to all of that group, which in this shows case is sometimes around 30-40 tracks.
    There's a few options. I think the easiest option for the editors is to build the show, then without saving, split the show into two parts, two separate bins. That will still allow them to retain the timecodes for notes. 

    Ex: 101 Current Cut Pt 1 Acts 1-3       101 Current Cut Pt 2 Acts 4-6
    For outputs or viewing, were either going to have to do audio mixdowns of some of the acts(note that this does take a chunk of time), or do commit multicam edits and watch them down very carefully.  We're running Avid 5.5.3 on 2 x 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Macs. Would we have this problem if running 64 bit Avids? thanks in advance

    Re: Sequence too big to save bin

    Running 64 bit machines won't help.  This is a software problem that is fixed in MC v6.5.

    Really? Solved in 6.5? Any Avid techs wanna chime in and corroborate?

    thanks
