  • Re: Avid, your full screen playback sucks.

    OK, I think I've figured it out. It depends on the Windows Display layout. I've got 2 HD monitors and a UHD TV connected. Physically, they're laid out with the UHD over the two monitors (I've got a KVM attached with my general purpose system; that system has a virtual desktop of 3840x3240). Normally I run the editting system with the

  • Re: Avid, your full screen playback sucks.

    OK, I've set my system up with 3 monitors, with MC running on 1 (the primary) and 2, and using the 3rd for the full screen playback. All of my dialogs are opening on the primary monitor. The only thing that affects the full screen playback monitor is if I go into Help and access the MC knowledge base (which opens a browser window on the primary

  • Re: Avid, your full screen playback sucks.

    Just out of curiousity, since your profile says you have a BMD Intensity 4K, why not use that for your third display? Edit: Sorry, just realized from re-reading the first post that you don't have the BMD in this setup. In any case, to try and deal with the original problem, if the dialogs are always showing up on that monitor, change the layout

  • Re: How to export a single frame from a clip?

    OK, I've got MCF installed and did a bunch of testing. Exporting to still image is broken. Even though the publish window shows the frame at the in point, it will always export the first frame of the sequence or clip. I've escalated this up to support. To work around (not elegant but it works) set the in point in the timeline, drag the subsequence

  • Re: How to export a single frame from a clip?

    I'm currently upgrading a laptop after which I'm going to install MCF on it for future reference. In the meantime, I've been through the manual and I can't find anything for exporting a single frame either. About the only thing I did find was the create sub-sequence button (set I/O points, create a subsequence). I don't know if you

  • Re: How to export a single frame from a clip?

    I don't have MCF installed, so I can't check on this, but in MC there's an option in the preset for Use Selected Marks. This should export only what's between the In and Out markers. This is assuming that this option exists in MCF.

  • Re: Export HEVC .TS

    MC doesn't export in HEVC. You have to export using a different CODEC and then use soemthing like Squueze to transcode to HEVC. Note that Squeeze Pro (at least V11) doesn't have a preset for 4K HEVC, so you'll have to modidify the parameters to fit the output format.

  • Re: Xeon vs i7?

    [quote user="Bruno M"]In my 25 years of using HP Zeon workstations I've never had one. But then, how would I know if EEC memory had ever caught an error and (say) saved me a corrupt export? Does the OS report it in an error message?[/quote] Windows (current versions) will only report if the ECC error could not be corrected. It will not

  • Re: Xeon vs i7?

    Just remember that ECC buffered memory is slower than non-bufferred. And ask yourself when the last time you had a memory error that didn't get caught. For me, Xeons are what you use for serious data modeling and analytics, as well as other app's that can really take advantage of all of the cores. This is one of my biggest issues with Media

  • Re: Xeon vs i7?

    Consider the lowest cost i9-7900x is almost $1K and the high-end I9-7980XE is amost $2K, that's a lot of money for more threads but not a significantly faster clock speed over the I7. And the problem here is that when it comes to multi-core processing, the I9 is significantly faster. But MC tends to prefer faster clock over more cores. Anything
