  • Re: convert 4k to 1080p

    Depends on if you want to edit with a high bandwidth HD finishing codec (DNxHD 220x most likely in your case) or follow an offline to online workfllow. Either way timecode information should be maintained through a transcode. Typical workflow would be to AMA link the source clips into your project and then perform a transcode to either a high or low

    Reporting back in case anyone else runs into this issue on 10.13.6 and using Avid video hardware (Mojo/Nitris DX and I think all flavors of the DNx series are affected as well): there's a weird bug/conflict with Boris FX' Final Effects Complete (FEC) that stops the hardware from being detected in MC versions 2018.7 and later (but according to

    Quick update: support was able to recreate the same issue, so I'm glad I'm not going totally crazy!

    [quote user="DonE"] We are using Nitris DX on a Mac Pro (mid2012) PCIe with 10.12.6 and 2018.9. It worked with .7 and .8 also. Don [/quote] Good to hear; thanks. At this point it's sounding like either it's me somehow or High Sierra as the issue then. Since I can get it to work reliably on two different machines under 2018.5, however

    [quote user="Kevin Klimek"] We are using the Nirtis DX with the latest MC versions on El Capitan. Are you including the DX driver when you install MC? A while back that became an optional installation and must be manually included. [/quote] Yes, manually checking the DX driver install; have to do this for 2018.5 as well, which is working fine

    Nitris DX interface hasn't worked since 2018.7; MacOS 10.13.6. Works on MC 2018.5, but nothing later; very repeatable. I have a support case open (have since 2018.7 release), but curious if others have run into this? I know the DX interfaces are getting a bit long in the tooth, but they are still technically a supported configuration. Based on some

    [quote user="flashavid"] the info tab proudly tells you it's using GPU acceleration - but nobody can actually tell us what it actually is or how it actually works [/quote] Ha, didn't realize that was conveniently there! Well I guess the good news is I'm seeing that as well, so apparently it must be making some use of my 1080. That

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

    I should have been more specific; I meant that Avid had disabled GPU accelaration in MC on the Mac side, not MacOS itself. I also do have iStat, which is where I've been looking to check my GPU usage. I've got the BorisFX suite and uses pieces of it from time to time (Continuum, Sapphire, and Mocha) which I do believe uses the GPU some, but

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

    I'd love to know more about GPU rendering under MacOS... under Windows it's pretty easy to pull up the compatible video card config file and see what you can use (and as some have done, venture to change it to add a different card or driver). However, this doesn't exist under MacOS that I'm aware. Furthermore, I found either an article
