    Media Composer 5 with Adrenaline

    Has anyone had any experience with the Adrenaline on MC5 and Windows 7?  We have an xw8400 and are looking to wipe the drives and do a fresh install of Windows 7 64bit and MC5.  I ways back I thought I read something about compatibility issues, but I cant seem to find any info on it.  Any thoughts?

    My second question would be how much faster is MC5 with a nitris DX, does it truly work as a hardware accelorator?

    The Adrenaline DNA box is supported by Avid to run with MC 5 on W7. Compatibility issues right now are regarding bringing older pre-MC 5 projects into MC 5. No problems with the DNA hardware to the best of my knowledge.

    What kinds of issues?  We have a lot of projects that show up again that we need to make dubs or export to dvds.  Thanks for the help!

    If you take a look at the current PC HW specs:

    you'll see that Win7 is NOT supported on the xw8400, though no doubt there are folks running MC5 on that config.
