  • Using a SSD USB 3.0 external drive for performance

    I note that renderng takes some time, and also, wihile HD editng is smooth, playback in 4K stutters. Watching Windows Resource Monitor, I see that the boittleneck is disk speed for these operations. The CPUs are nearly idle and RAM is mostly unused, but the disk I/O queue is around 5 (generally speakjing...

  • Does # of Projects on Workspace Affect Performance?

    I'm working on a multi-season, episodic tv show. We have a "Projects" partition where each season of episodes is separated into different folders. We only work out of the latest folder, but it's not uncommon to open a bin from another, older project, so it's handy to have them all...

  • FrameFlex causes performance issues

    I want to share with everybody something that I just discovered. Call it a bug or call it a feature that doesn't perform as expected. Basically, in a short sequence where a lot of the clips have FrameFlex applied to them, Media Composer takes a serious performance hit. I have a 9-minute sequence...

  • Media Composer playback performances...

    Hi, I've something to ask you, When I make a playback of my Timeline, when I want to move the headline or when I'm triming clips (in 1080p) the software is not really reactive like before (even if I made a "Clean Bin Memory")... obviously, my hardware hasn't changed so far. So is...

  • ISIS 5500 Disk Performance Degraded

    Hey all - I'm geting Disk Performance Degraded warnings on our ISIS 5500. It keeps referring to DISK 1. I'd like to replace the ISB but none of the LED indicator lights are red so I'm not sure which one to replace. A couple questions: 1) Is DISK 1 referring to the ISB in the very top left...

  • Single CPU with X Cores vs. Dual CPU with X/2 Cores

    Hello! I started to outline a post facility and I came across a basic doubt, regarding dual processor and single processor workstations. To better illustrate my question, imagine a scenario where we put two workstations face to face with the same specs (RAM, GPU, SSD...) except the following: W1: 2 CPUs...

  • Re: Questions RE: "How Avid Media Composer Uses a Computer"

    Hi Chris, Many thanks for this post. A quesiton about codec handling as it relates to real time playback. Perhaps Shailendra could offer some thoughts or commentary on the following... One thing that has been both curious and frustrating comes with how reliable or robust the playback is for a given codec...

  • Network flow doubled

    Hi in these days I noticed by accident that network flow generated by plugin is doubled. I map a network drive with some clips and AMA linked a clip from it. Then I start to play the clip with full quality ( requested image scale is 1.0). My material has a flow rate of 100Mbit while playing a clip with...

  • Transcoding speed

    Hey there I have a question about usage of multi-core cpus in MC 8. I mainly edit Full HD and I just did the jump from an XW8600 to a Z840 (see specs). Coming from 8 cores going to 20 cores (40 with ht) and guess what - render time is almost the same. In task manager it seems as if only 1 core would...
