  • New to NEXIS. Need advice on workflow and folder placement/structure

    Hi, We just installed a NEXIS/Media Composer combination on a Windows 10 box. Prior to that, we were using Media Composer with two Dolce drives. Our old workflow consisted of putting all of our non-Avid-transcoded files on a QNAP server that we accessed on the network. The QNAP file structure was based...

  • Accidentally erased my video track!

    Ok so I somehow erased my video from the timeline and then saved the project before going to bed. I didn't realize I had done so until the next day so now I can't undo the mistake! How can I rectify this and get my video back? Can I find old backup versions in the AVID Attic or something? I don't...

  • Sharing Media and Projects Between Two Distinct Computers

    Hi, We are trying to figure out the best way to share media and projects at my office. We will have two computers with Avid Media Composer 7. They cannot be connected through the network as it is too small and will clog the pipeline. We are researching cloud based storage along with a RAID 1 machine...

  • Re: Can Unity attic be redirected?

    I too agree that having the Unity Attic on the same volume isn't ideal. Yes, the attic helps in the case of a crash, but it also becomes a point of redundancy that could save your skin in the event of a volume corruption or failure. The workaround I use is the Mac backup tool Chronosync. It allows...

  • Are original prores files a suitable backup for Avid media?

    Two questions: 1) I've discovered that a project I've been brought onto does not maintain a clone of the Avid media. There is, however, a complete set of the prores media from which the Avid MXFs were made. Is this an acceptable backup of the media? ie, if the drive containing the MXFs fails...

  • backup. XDcam vs LTO

    Hi, We have been archived our masters on XDcam disks the last several years. Is this safe for backup for the future or should we go for LTO or other solutions? What do you recommend? Stig

  • Re: How to optimize workstation for MC7

    My boot drive is a WD Caviar Black 6Gb/s SATA III 750GB which I've split into several partitions. I have many OS's on my machine including XP. I tend to create a partition on this drive that also holds all the data e.g. 'C' is for Windows and 'D' is for data (not footage data...

  • Re: Interplay 2.7 Backup ceased to work...

    Hi Fernando, VSS is a copy-on-write driver that intercepts disk writes before they actually happen. The current contents of the disk are written to a shadow copy buffer before the write takes place (this is the snapshot being referenced in the errors quoted). This process means a disk image is created...
