  • Internal media drive questions - SSD or HDD / SMR vs CMR

    I've got an upcoming project and need about 2-4TB of storage space on my home setup. Up till now, I've been using whatever USB3 external drives production companies send me, but they drive me a bit crazy when they go to sleep each time I stop editing for 5-10 minutes. Also, I suspect USB3 is...

  • Hardrive configuration

    Hi, Is it a good idea to have Avid MediaComposer on SSD but Avid MediaFiles on a HDD 5400rpm to potentially work on 4k footage ? Thank you

  • How To Transfer MC-First Project to Different Drive

    How do I transfer the entire project from my internal HDD to my external HDD? I created the entire project on my old PC using "Media Composer First" ("MCF"). I have a new PC so I no longer want to use my old PC to work on this project. I have successfully installed MCF into my new...

  • Locating Source Media for a Subclip

    Hey Everyone, This issue has bothered me for some time and so I thought I would present it here in hopes that someone could teach me a way to do it that I am unaware of as opposed to there simply not being a way to do it. If I have a subclip in a bin sometimes I need to locate the source media on the...

  • Re: Hybrid Hard Drives

    I definitely use an external for my media, that goes without saying. But AVID's min specs are for a 7200 RPM SATA drive or a 128 GB SSD. I'm trying to figure out if a 5400 RPM Hybrid Drive would work, as well, for Media Composer's minimum specs. Any ideas if it would run Media Composer without...

  • Hybrid Hard Drives

    Hello there! I'm looking to get a new workstation laptop built specifically for Media Composer 7. My question is, will a Hybrid hard drive with 1 TB of space at only 5400 rpm work? I know that 7200 is supposed to be the min, but does a hybrid hard drive make this passable? Sorry this is such an amateurish...

  • Media Composer on a SSD

    Hello, I am a Media Composer user, and I am thinking of upgrading to an SSD for my system to run off of. I have a few questions before I try though. 1) Will Media Composer run properly on an SSD? If so, why aren't SSDs listed in the MC system requirements posted by Avid or in the supported system...

  • Putting an extra Sata drive in an Z400, need info about data cable

    Hiya THis might not be stictly related to Avid but this forum is so reliable I though I'd give it a shot anyway. I've just bought an HP z400. It comes installed with a 3.0 Sata drive. I've just inserted a second one (an Iomega 1TB drive) into the second internal bay. But there seems to be...

  • Data Cable for second internal HDD on Avid Qualified Z400

    HI All This is isn't strictly about Avid but this forum is so reliable I though I'd give it a go anyway. I've just bought an Avid qualified HP Z400 and have inserted a second hard drive into the workstation. There seems to be 2 power cables (one for the already installed hard drive and one...

  • MC 6.0 crash on playback

    Hi all, This is my first post. I searched everywhere for a solution but alas... Yesterday I installed 2 new 3Tb Seagate Barracuda HDD's 7200rpm on my workstation to add space for my media. Windows is showing the drives as 2 x 2TB, 1 x 1.5Tb and 1 x 465GB. HP say that they will not support these drives...
