Avid creates a document for us tech folk, commonly known as the Avid Cheat Sheet. It’s a “living” document with install / tech gotchas, links, and tech goodness for the new version of Media Composer. It is absolutely essential for building, optimizing, and configuring an efficient (and sometimes even functional) Avid system. Here is latest version for 4.0.4.
I post this here as the last time there was a codec overhaul, massive problems occurred with Avid Unity and QT Reference file encoding.
And it was thus said by Avid:
I’m on a plane from Vegas – after nerding out at the Digital Signage Expo. It’s a full circle, having been christened into Digital Signage around 2002 with Graybow. Glasfire (3M’s Vikuiti), if any of you remember. In any event, this short 50 minute jaunt from Vegas to Burbank gives me time to write a quick blog.
Looks like Avid has qualified the new Nehalem Macs:
Avid Announces Support for New Apple® Mac Pro Computers for
Avid Media Composer® and Avid Symphony™
Probably one of the best documents Avid has put out for us tech folk; a cheatsheet document with install / tech gotchas, links, and tech goodness for the new version of Media Composer.
MacRumors Benchmarks for the New Nehalem MacPros:
Current harddrives and storage solutions are available containing terrabytes of space. While the computer itself can support that much space, after 250+GB of storage has been taken up with media, the Avid begins to lose its way when dealing with Media DataBases.
