    Re: MC 8.8 Now Available!

    Same here, I'm running Avid 8.8 on Windows 10 with a Quadro 4000 card and GTX 780 card with the latest Nvidia driver 376.53 and so far no crashes.

    I was experiencing system crashes a few weeks ago when Windows automatic updates was attempting an update, I did a clean install for the first time on my system and it has been working fine so far.

    Your system specs indicate you have a Quadro K4000 card, which is a generation newer than my Quadro 4000.  It has 1 GB additional memory (3 GB total, compared to my 2 GB), which may explain why you are not getting the "out of memory" messages.

    Yes stable here. After a week of use yet did not notice problems with the graphics card.

    The crashes seem to occur only when opening a project created with an earlier version of Media Composer.  I was able to create a new project, ingest some media, lay a few clips on the timeline, and play them without encountering any "out of memory" issues or crashes.  Unfortunately, I have several projects in progress, some of which go back a few months.  So I guess my choice is to revert to an earlier version of Media Composer or run the current version with an earlier NVIDIA driver.  That or upgrade my video card on this 4-year-old system.

    Can you pin point the earlier versions? i.e what version where the projects created in.

    The most critical project is a big multicam one that I started a year ago and edited for three months.  I had the most current version of Media Composer at that time.  I tried to open several earlier projects, and they crashed as well with the "out of memory" message.

    That mot likely was 8.4.x.  Want to try a temp version of that and see if it allows you to open?

    Sure, I'll try it.  Does it matter that 8.4.x was not qualified for Windows 10?

    I probably was on 8.5.x.  Going to the Download Center, I see that its release date coincides with the time frame of that project.  If I remember correctly, though, 8.5.x wants to use NVIDIA driver version 353.82.  If I roll back my video driver to that version so that I can run 8.5.x, I really won't be learning much.  It's the later NVIDIA drivers that are causing "out of memory" errors.

    michael,

     

    like you i have an old quadro 4000 with 2gb of memory, and i'm back to 353.82, on win 10pro.

    i had the same problem trying 375.86 with 8.8, and also before that, the driver that was supplied with 8.7.2, whatever number it was... 

    i never bothered to try any other drivers by the way.

    With that, I was in the past, about three months back, also met. But I do not remember the exact parameters. I feel that I had turned on some version of the "Turbo Mode" setting W10. (Set using an external AVG). Maybe this direction is the way to solve the problem. Currently, the standard mode is set.

    Is there a list of non-Avid storage that will work with the new project sharing options?

    I currently use a Lumaforge Jellyfish and Mimiq software to emulate project sharing.

    Re: MC 8.8 Now Available!

    Unfortunately maybe I am a malcontent, but now I found in MC 8.8 new limitation. New version of Media Composer don't import properly 16 bit RGBA TIFF with compesion Deflate type sequences with Alpha channel (Black screen). An old After Effects CS 6 still can do it and don't know what goes now wrong? Maybe other type TIFF compresion with Alpha Channel must be? Someone, something?

    FWIW a quick check here using a RGB logo on a transparent background. Saved from Photoshop as a 16bit tif with compression set to None and PC byte order opened fine here with MC 8.8 on a W7 SP1 computer
