  • Re: Avid, your full screen playback sucks.

    I think it was a Matrox box that allowed you to plug in 2 outputs from the PC and have 3 monitor outputs from the box. I used to run this before 3rd Party support was available and my mojo died. Effectively the PC saw 2 monitors - one the combined dimension of 2 screens and a second that I used for FSP. Really a cludge but it saved having to plug something

  • Re: New Avid Title Tool DOA?

    [quote user="JCBond"]Some of the items on your list require a complete re-write of the core software.[/quote] So get writing. The core is old and being left behind, Avid First was a chance to do that with low risk to established users from bugs. No courage to do that then so what prospect it will happen in the future? Avid is milking an old

  • Re: New Avid Title Tool DOA?

    I could not agree more. I am with mike 100% on this. We have abandoned avid for the first time for premier on a current major project <because> of buggy newblue and the promised and not delivered title tool. From that we are questioning re-subscribing to avid this year at all. We have our dongle. Outdated CC, non existent modern tilting (come

  • Re: MC 8.9.1 and Boris RED 5.5 Conflict

    I am getting a constant and repeatable crash on 8.10 trying to open an existing Boris FX or playing over a realtime unrendered FX. Windows 7. We haven't bothered following it up, as I understand it Avid FX is eol so we have jumped and rebuilt all FX in AE... Too busy (nice problem to have) to really do anything more about this but I'll lend

  • Re: Media Composer 2018.1 NOW AVAILABLE 16 JAN 2018

    [quote user="jwrl"]Interestingly, although this is apparently a major version number update,[/quote] This numbering system will make it harder to know if an update is "incremental" or "major". As we climbed through 8.x.x you got an indication of the amount of changes under the hood by the numbering convention. A jump to

  • Re: Building a PC for the first time - Avid compatible?

    If the machine is a "clean" editing system with Avid/Adobe and similar programs only installed then 500G SSD is plenty. Go for quality SSDs - we stick with the Intel server grade ones as they have a high reliability life cycle. We have had problems with consumer grade SSDs in our other dektops failing over time. One thing to remember when

  • Re: Mainstream CPU Intel Four Core or Six Core

    Still building here. The current system is dual Xeon as per my specs. We moved to i7 3 years ago from Xeon as, at the time, Avid wasn't hitting all the cores. That seems to have changed and we rebuilt last year as per below. So the i7 had the shortest "online" life span. When transcoding on 8.9+ I see almost every physical and hyperthread

  • Re: What Avid Media Composer Should Have in 2018

    What I sense is that Avid isn't big enough to take on a complete rebuild, the current product will evolve as far as its core code will let it but ultimately, it will wither away as will its user base. I think the comments on its reliance on 3rd party apps demonstrates where it is in its life cycle. Perhaps BM should buy out the software arm of Avid
