    MC7 & AMA media being shared between suites on a network drive

    Can anyone clarify.

     I currently have 3 suites running MC5.5.  They all connect to a network drive where they pick up ama volumes and files.  This works out quite well, it's not quite the expense of a shared storage solution and probably doesn't have all the advantages, but it does have some.

    If I were to upgrade to MC7 would that workflow become broken due to the indexing of AMA media, each suite trying to write idex files whilst the media is being shared?  

    Does anyone have a similar setup?  What have you found with MC7

    Thanks

    This workflow will still work.

    The MC 7 AMA managemnt is saved on the local C: drive of each machine.

    No database files are being saved with the original AMA files/folders.

    The database is saved in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Avid Media Composer\AMA Management

    So when a diffrent user is trying to link to an AMA file or volume that has already been linked to in a diffrent suite  - he got no problem at all.

    Cheers
