Background

Avid-L was established in 1994 at Calvin College by Steven Koster.
It was created to be a forum for Avid users to meet, discuss, and share
information.

Avid-L quickly grew into the premiere on-line users group for
professional film and video editors. It was one of the earliest examples

of an Internet community, allowing hundreds of editors worldwide to
share their experiences and expertise with their peers. There was no
better place for a professional Avid editor to get such wealth of
informed professional advice.

At various times, individual subscribers volunteered services to the
group. Searchable archives were maintained by Germany's Berlin Users
Group as well as the UIUC. A tips & tricks list was posted by Andy
Birkhead of Innovative Edit. Wes Plate, a longtime contributor, not only

shared key techniques on his Web site, he also created a photo gallery
for members' portraits.

In 1997, several subscribers began a tradition of meeting in person at
the NAB trade show in Las Vegas. The first gatherings were organized by Jaime Fowler. In 1999,
Avid Technology itself began sponsoring these gatherings as an exclusive reception and seminar for Avid-L members only. In 2002, this changed to the "Avid Users Group" meeting.

By 1999, Avid-L boasted over 1600 subscribers, exhibiting a true
international scope with over 300 international members. The community
included participants from a wide variety of well-known corporate
organizations in broadcasting, technical, and content creation fields,
as well as and multiple local TV stations, colleges, and universities.

In 2000, Avid-L joined AvidProNet.com, and then, in 2002, was integrated
Into Avid.com.

In 2005 Due to problems with signal to noise ratio and abusive posters, the Avid-L2 was formed. A year later the Avid-L was discontinued by Avid.

At the middle of 2006, the L2 has around 1100 members, with plenty of "lurker only" members who simply use the web version of the list. The L2 is spam-free, by moderation and with Yahoo's tools and will remain that way. The integrated archives with both old L and L2 posts came on line recently as well at the University of Illinois. That can be found at http://archives.itg.uiuc.edu/avid/.

Cross-posting to the FCP-L is welcome, tho reply's will not flow back to either list necessarily- check your own email reply preferences. The Final Cut list is found at: http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/FinalCutPro-L

Welcome, and Enjoy!

Re: [Avid-L2] Overworking GPU potential issues?

 

No I'm on a mid 2010 MacPro upgraded to 12 Core 3.33Ghz and 24GB of ram.  I haven't had any issues that I can think of related to GPU overheating.  My system has a ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB so it's no power house but it chugs along fine for Avid and some Adobe suite PS and AE light work.  It's not great in Resolve transcoding but we don't do much of that.

are you running on one of these?

Subject: [Avid-L2] Overworking GPU potential issues?

 
I saw in a forum on Resolve that there is a setting to throttle back the GPU processing.  The thread mentioned that if the GPU is slammed too hard in can render in glitches so the suggestion was to limit the processing so as to not overtax the GPU.

Today I'm watching Activity monitor with Adobe Media Encoder encoding H_264 files from ProResHQ and the CPU usage will go as high as 2,000% which I understand to mean it's using approx 20 cores of the 24 core MacPro.  I'm also rendering in Avid and that cuts into AME CPU bringing it down to around 1,500% with Avid around 500% cpu.  The values bounce around but the combined total is usually around 2,000%.

I haven't noticed any glitches but am curious if anybody has run into any of these issues.  I recall on PCs there was a need to turn off some GPU processing in the Avid settings to avoid render glitches.  I didn't think that was related to overtaxing the GPU but now I wonder. 

Can anyone shed some light in this area?

Re: [Avid-L2] Recovered Files folder in the trash

 


This sounds like the opening scenes from a horror movie.  ;-p

Hello,

Here a long story about finding a Recovered Files folder in the trash
can after rebooting.

It started about two years ago, the morning after I upgraded to El
Capitan. It was sunny outside and everybody in the office was in a good
mood. Then, it happened.  I booted the MacPro 12 core and noticed that
there was something in the trash. It was a folder named Recovered Files.
I trashed it and when on playing with the rest of the gang.  I don't
remember which version of MC was installed but it was close to be the
latest. The next morning the Recovered Files folder was back, and the
day after, and after, and it's still there anytime I restart after using
MC. It only reappears if I used Avid before the restart. All I have to
do is open Avid, load a project, quit and restart.

The Recovered Files folder contained Avid related stuff so I assumed
that something on my system was not playing nice with MC and that I'll
eventually have time to fix it. Later I upgraded to Sierra and the
problem followed.

I never really had time to investigate but in March, I sold the MacPro
and bought a MBP 2017. So, I did a clean install of everything and the
dreadful folder did not reappear until last week. Then I finally figured
it out.

Last week for the first time since my clean install on a new system, I
used the Media Browser. Normally I Option drag but this time I had to
look for the footage. On the next restart, it was back and as usual it
was there to stay.

Somewhere in the library there is a folder called AMA Management. If I
trash it, the Recovered Files folder does not reappear until you use the
Media Browser.

Now, the happy ending. This morning, On a brand new SSD, I reinstalled
Mac OS 10.13.6 and MC 2018.9. Nothing else. New project, new user,
default settings. Used the Media Browser, restarted and the dreadful
Recovered Files folder was there laughing at me. Beside Avid, no other
software is installed. Therefore, it's an Avid issue.

Am I the only one on this planet having this annoying Recovered Files
folder in the trash following the use of the Media Browser?

I'd like to know before raising a case with Avid.

Thanks,

Marcel
