    New User Needs Help!!

    Hello everyone,

     

    So I recently downloaded the advid DS as a Trial version. My biggest problem right now is when I Import, I can't edit. The playback on the time line is so choppy. Its like its skipping frames, like there is a problem with syncing.

    Im importing from a file that is already on my harddrive. Im wondering if its my computer that is missing something. Or am I suppose to set up the project a certain way so it doesn't give me that problem.. for now, I focus on a resolution of 1080psf @30., because that is what the video was shot w/ a 1080 res at 3o frames per sec. @ a shutter speed of 60.

    Or am I suppose to work from something external? Geez I hope not.

    If anyone could give me feed back I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

    DS needs its own drive it can be internal. You resolution should DNxHD not uncompressed. If you want to work uncompressed the you need external drive such as Graid Pro. Give us the specs of your PC etc. By the way DS will discontinue and you should probably look for something similar.

    Oh, there's a market for it, Avid just never served it properly.

    Symphony is in no way equivalent or a substitute for DS, and is unlikely to ever be even years from now.

    Well, at least the thread topic is accurate.
