  • Re: Single CPU with X Cores vs. Dual CPU with X/2 Cores

    I did some research on this kind of thing with Avid's engineers recently. Made a blog out of it. Here: http://www.avidblogs.com/how-avid-media-composer-uses-a-computer/ For the longest, longest time, Avid Media Composer was "core agnostic". It barely understood how to use them, and when it was redesigned to start using them, it was still

I'd love to get this answer directly from someone inside Avid who actually works on the team qualifying the cards. Or at least someone over them who makes the rules about how/why to qualify

  • Re: Renaming a Project

    It's actually an old school gag to play on someone. Sneak into a fellow editor's room on April Fool's day, and rename the project's "_.avp" file to something goofy. Does no harm.
