  • Re: Moving beyond QuickTime

    Hi, There a couple of interesting points here. 1 - There isn't a microsoft developed alternative thats professionally viable and no-one wants to really entertain AVI files, so thats both major OS developers not maintaining and developing professionally viable media containers. 2 - The other is the announcement at Avid Connect over the weekend. Adobe

  • Re: "Close all other bins" command

    This would be handy. An Option/ALT+right click on the selected bin would yeild an alternate command of close all other bins. The only way currently to work around this is to CTRL+A to select all bins, close them by selecting Close Selected bins and then re-open the one you want. This can be aided by a temporarily clicking into Flat Bin View somewhat
  • Re: More Cores or More Speed?

    Personally i would go speed over core count still at the mo.

  • Re: Tech FYI: Samsung SSD EVO Drives

    Out of interest what Mac OS are you using? The OS used to only accept certain brands of SSD and saw those as supported or 'native' as with a Mac bought with a SSD shipped inside. I think that either Mavericks or Yosemite (probably Yosemite) opened the door for what Apple sees as 3rd party/foreign SSD types. There may well be a wiser owl lurking

  • Re: Sony A7S - no AMA link 'wrong format'. HELP!"

    Catalyst Browse works fine - we recently used it to make Pro Res HQ from those XAVC-S MP4's. Be interesting to make a speed test of re-wrap (no transcode) to MOV if that does indeed link correctly as to which is quickest, cliptoolz or catalyst browse. I'm surprised that the QT re-wrap worked i assumed it was the core codec that was the issue

  • Re: How to copy clips around in your time line?

    I'm sure there's a copy-drag feature in Media Composer that will probably make your life easier. Using a segment tool (Yellow & Red Arrow) select the clip then hold down Alt or Option keys and drag the clip to create a copy, you'll get a little '+' sign on the clip too. This came in from 8.1 - so pretty recent

  • Re: GPU suggestion: gtx580

    I think that most people stick to the supported list of Quadro's, Media Composer will not use your GTX for any acceleration. There are links to qulaified setups here: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/compatibility/Media-Composer-System-Requirements Some people do find that GTX work perfectly well of course but they're not tested by Avid

  • Re: MC 8.5/Windows 10 AVCHD Audio Issue

    this could also be linked to your AC3 licence. If the AVCHD files have AC3 audio within them as opposed to PCM then the AC3 licence would need deactivating first then re-activating on Windows 10. Might not be the case of course but worth considering.

  • Re: Set Clip Color / Set Clip Color Default - Menu Item Scavenger Hunt

    I did notice that the help file appears to be updated so if you need to find something it should say in there. I found the clip colour info in there and the previous method has been removed from the help file too to tally.

  • Re: Frame drops with linked Pro Res 4444 QT's

    I do see exactly what your're saying but i know the bandwidth of the drive array is far higher than the streams need and i've checked my CPU useage when playing back the Pro Res 4444 GFX on my sequence and its not being maxed out. I guess its the 32bit QT limit, perhaps it cant farm it out to all my cores well enough. Frsutrating that i'm
