  • Re: Tips / Guide for Avid Media Composer finishing workflow

    What Pat and Glenn, say re Resolve is spot on. I do a lot of finishing and the real reason for roundtripping is the limited toolset in Symphony and the need (here in the UK) for AS-11 delivery, which until recently you could not do from Resolve. The alternatives to round-tripping are, do it all in Symphony - not impossible but getting very creaky -

  • Re: Dell Workstation 7770 and Dell Dock WD19DCS

    I don't know about the Dell but I've been happily using a HP ZBook 17 G5 with a Thunderbolt G2 docking station for some time. I moved a while ago to workstation laptops from desktops, because of my case use. The Zbook has been upgraded to a 16GB Quadro 5200 and now 128GB ram and I have found it powerful enough for all my use in Avid and Resolve

    [quote user="Philip Kapadia"]told you [/quote] Ha ha [quote user="Philip Kapadia"]I still dispute that you can do all in resolve in symphony.

  • Re: Avid Artist Controls LCD screens are completely solid yellow, please help

    [quote user="persyst"]My firmwares say they're updated already[/quote] They will say that with old firmware and software. You have to install the latest version before newer firmwares are possible and recognised. It's not an internet thing, the actual firmware is carried in the software.

  • Re: Avid Artist Controls LCD screens are completely solid yellow, please help

    Yes I would update to the latest Eucontrol and update the firmware, on each. You will be very disappointed with Color in Media Composer, especially if you have Symphony, but I imagine you already know that. If you have Baselight Editions, you may also know that the panel is wonderfully responsive and useful then, for grading. If you intend to resurrect

    [quote user="Philip Kapadia"]It does everything what resolve can do... in MC!![/quote] I recently bought Baselight Editions, mainly because I acquired an Artist Color panel for Resolve, where it works well but was horrified to see how bad it worked in Symphony, even though I'd been warned! How can Filmlight do a so much better job than

  • Re: Media Composer won't shuttle

    Same here on 2022.10, I have to reboot Avid to get it back sometimes. It happens if I use the Shuttle Pro V2 once, then no mount of JKL, will speed it up until relaunch. I'm sick of bugs like this and the interface ones, I'm re-installing 2018 at the weekend.

  • Re: Red dot in timelime where I'm under specifications

    [quote user="ugo1"]and I have the rendering drive on a sata III port.[/quote] I would move this to an NVME drive, it will at least speed up rendering considerably. You may find your problem is ram - I would double that ram, at least for working in 4K. Possibly too, your Prores HQ is 50/60p? Then you are dealing with 8 x the bandwidth of HD

  • Re: Red dot in timelime where I'm under specifications

    I believe that is drive speed. Even standard single SSD drives may not be fast enough for Prores HQ 4K, at times, with additional FX processing. Some large fast Raid drive combinations and NVME drives should be fine though. For such material and especially for grading/FX finishing I offload the conform onto internal NVME 2TB drives, 1 or which is for

  • Re: fast forward without pitch shift?

    [quote user="Mshelleyreade"] Also if you want to play faster, but not quite 2x speed, you can change J and L in the command palette from Play Forward to Dynamic Play Forward. Here's a video that walks you through it: https://vimeo.com/243235025 [/quote] Wow thanks! I've been looking for that for ages, for use with my Shuttle Pro V2
