  • Re: Media Composer v7.0.4 - NOW AVAILABLE w/Mavericks support!

    Is it possible to get a trial version of v7.0.4? I have a new MBP Retina and it came with OS X 10.9.2 and it seems the trial version is v7.0.3 which does not work with OS X 10.9.2! Or, can I get a link for the trial for v6.5? Thanks in advance for your help! Ceci

  • DNxHD 36 to DNXHD 175/175x or to Canon 5D/MIII, Sony F3 QTs

    I have inherited a project that was mostly a 2 camera shoot on: Canon 5D/Mark III and Sony F3 cameras. The media was transcoded to DNxHD 36, 175 and 175x. Some sync and group clips were made. It was discovered that the picture and sound have a slight drift here and there due to not having a lock box and/or the Canon 5D/Mark III is not a true sync lock

  • Best Software for Making Playable DVDs?

    I need to make a playable DVD (on a DVD player, not on a computer). I read here in the forums, people suggesting DVD Studio Pro or Adobe Encore for MC Mac systems (since AvidDVD is only for PC). Has anyone had good success with either of these -- or other third party software? I've already asked if I could provide a QT, but they prefer a playable

  • Re: Pluraleyes with 2-camera HD shoot with 1-2 frames drift?

    A 23.976 vs 24.000 issue would produce a 1% sync drift over time. What I am experiencing is smaller than that. I know that a lockbox/genlock was not used on the shoot. The cameras are close to running in perfect sync, but without the lockbox/genlock, they are drifting 1-2 frames over 5-10 minutes from a start clapper slate. A 1% drift over 5 minutes

  • Pluraleyes with 2-camera HD shoot with 1-2 frames drift?

    Has anyone used Pluraleyes with a 2-camera HD shoot where the cameras and the sound recorded (separately, in addition to audio on the cameras) may have a 1-2 frame drift over 5-10 minutes? The cameras did not have lockboxes/genlock. Sometimes 2 Canon 5D's were used, sometimes one Canon 5D with one Sony F3. Not all media drifts 1-2 frames out over

  • MC 7.0 Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3 vs. 10.8.4

    I am working on a project that began in MC 6.5.x and is now in MC 7.0. This is on a new (thanks, Videoguys for your awesome website!): iMac 27" 3.4GHz Intel Core i7 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB The iMac came with Mountain Lion 10.8.3 installed. I see on the Avid matrix that 10.8.4 is the supported OSX for MC 7, but also see

  • Re: Videoguys' PC & Mac System Recommendations for Avid Media Composer 7

    Answering this myself here in case anyone needs to know in the future :) I called Videoguys and they recommend 2 X 8GB RAM. In the future, should you want to improve performance, you can then add 2 X 8GB RAM to go into the last two RAM slots. No matter what, RAM needs to be added in equal pairs. If you bought 4 X 4GB RAM, you would need to toss 2 X

  • RAM configuration for iMac 27" i7 quad core 3.4GHz

    I have also posted this question on the thread from Videoguys, but in case someone else knows -- I am helping my boss purchase a new iMac 27" i7 quad core 3.4GHz and she is willing to buy 16GB RAM. Do we need it configured as 2X8GB or 4X4GB RAM because of the quad core (separate RAM chip for each core)? If we need to down the road, we may purchase

    [quote user="videoguy"] RAM: 8GB of RAM is the bare minimum. As a rule of thumb, we recommend 3GB of RAM per CPU core, so for best results with an i7 quad core CPU, get 12GB (triple channel) or 16GB (dual or quad channel) of RAM.
