    Saving Projects to a server

    Has anyone been able to save MC projects to a server?  I have a OS X server that I have tried mounting via AFP and SMB to save projects to and neither works.  Bins save fine, but I constantly get an error when trying to save projects.  It stumps me why this would even be a issue for MC to save files to.

    Re: Saving Projects to a server

    You can't just save your projects to any old server, you get that warning if you do.  ISIS, EditShare, etc, have their own sharing protocols that make things "work" so you don't get that warning.

    Adding:  For most users with general needs, it doesn't matter what the protocol is (SMB, AFP, NFS, etc).  For video editing, and Avid in particular, it does.  Don't be surprised if there are other issues apart from the project not saving even though the bins do.
