    FCP Access on Avid's Unity

    Hi,

    We are looking to purchase a used 4TB Unity, I've heard that Avid have just allowed FCP access on their Unity's. Is there a particular model of hardware or software this will work on or is it availible on all Unitys? Sadly I don't have the model number of the Unity or the version of software its running.

    Thanks

    Re: FCP Access on Avid's Unity

    Morning....

     

    This is a good article to scan first....

     

    http://avid.force.com/pkb/LegacySearch?DocId=282921

     

    You would need to check the version the “used” Unity is on and then upgrade if necessary. 

    When upgrading – please note that back in late 2009, a slight FCP issue came to light whereas Final Cut Pro was slow when switching between the Avid Unity client desktop and back to the Final Cut Pro app. The delay was dependent on the size of the project; the larger the project, the longer the delay.

     

    Example - Customer is editing in Final Cut Pro and needs to return to the Finder to get something from the desktop, then returns to Final Cut Pro and the system could encounter the spinning beach-ball for 5- 30 seconds before the Final Cut Pro app re-engages.  This does not occur with the Avid editing applications.

     

    Three Unity maintenance releases are available on the Download Center that include the patch for Avid Unity ISIS & Avid Unity MediaNetwork that resolve this issue*.

     

    The releases are:

    ·Avid Unity ISIS v2.0.4 & Avid Unity ISIS v1.7

     Avid Unity MediaNetwork v5.1.3  (Fibre Channel Only)

     

    *Please note that the delay issue still exists with Avid Unity MediaNetwork, Ethernet Configurations. This is due to Avid’s customized version of Ethernet (ACIFS) used with Avid Unity MediaNetwork.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I found out the Unity has a fibre board but still no information about the version / system number.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but it seems that any Unity can be upgraded to support FCP, is this correct?

    Also the links you kindly provided Avid have removed, I can't get access to the 'Avid Unity Approved Applications Page' or the 'Avid Unity Approved Applications', is there any chance they would be located anywhere else??

    Thanks

    HI again,

    I have the web team looking at that article now...  with the web redesign a few things got " unlinked".  Stand by....

    As for Unity upgrades - yes it should be able to be upgraded.
