[Avid-L2] Re: Fing Harding Piece of S^$##^* Does someone in LA have a Harding

 

So a few people had PSE episodes and subsequently they were able to figure out the exact red patterning that caused the episodes? In the reported cases were they able to determine the exact moment the PSE was induced? Red patterning sounds like a pretty broad statement.
Given the enormous amount of color, brightness and contrast variance in consumer monitors what's red on one monitor will be a different red on another. How does the surrounding environment effect the chance for PSE to be induced? What makes these "Red Patternings" or other aspects of the image unique to Television broadcast? Don't they occur in nature also? And are the same evaluations done to theatrical films? I'm not expecting you guys to know all the answers but these are the questions that come to mind for me. It just has the ring of, oh well that didn't quite work so now I'll try this. I'm clearly skeptical of trying to make a relatively exact science of something that seems hard to clearly define. I can't imagine they went back and made the people who had seizures watch the show again to see if they can pin point the problem, that would be inhuman.

[Avid-L2] Restoring a new iMac quite the wait?

 

Setting up a new iMac and I wanted to keep the log in simple but I realized after the initial name and password I gave the computer I wanted the name and the password to be the same.  I'm not worried about security at home so I went to set up a new user with the name that matched the password I already used.  I get errors about the name already being in use.  Oh well I'm sure someone knows how to rework that but I figured I should take the opportunity to test out the new OS Restore feature.  Or should I say the new curse.  I started it and it's telling me the restore is going to take 7 hours and 41 minutes.  WTF?  I am supposed to get up to 3Mbps and I just ran a speed test that came in at 1.7Mbps but the OS restore is going so I figure that's probably taking up some of the bandwidth.  At any rate almost 8 hours to restore the OS!!  This seems ridiculous.  I haven't done much googling on this but I didn't find any cheats like the script for OS
10.7 that allowed the OS update to be stored on a flash drive.  Does anyone know of such a beast for 10.8.2 which is what this new iMac 21inch came with?  The lack of the ability to have an OS restore/emergency disk or even partition that doesn't require a download of such extreme length is inconceivable to me, but what do I know.  If the system wasn't brand new out of the box I'd definitely see how I could delete the errant user name I created and get the name to match the password I want but for the sake of experience I'm going to let this thing run it's course.  Perhaps the time estimate will change along the way but right now I'm shocked.

I asked this exact same question over on the Creative Cow FCP-X forum. Here's the thread.

Conclusion: Yes, but not without some hoops to jump through.

Re: [Avid-L2] Avid needs to become a PRIVATE company!

 

I've been using CS5.5 more than Avid for about a year now. The time
savings in being able to background export is huge when dealing with
cheap event jobs, and even when dealing with low budget corporate.

MUCH more rendering then on my Avid though - but I don't have the latest
video card.

Re: [Avid-L2] Avid needs to become a PRIVATE company!

 

Adobe is not quite there yet, but soon will be.

http://tv.adobe.com/watch/adobe-anywhere/introducing-adobe-anywhere-for-video/

http://www.adobe.com/products/adobeanywhere.html

Obviously it will take some time to prove itself, but based on Adobe's experience with collaboration in the still images arena, I think they will succeed.

The idea of having what is essentially a centralized render farm doing all the work and just sending a single stream to the clients for viewing is potentially huge for people who work from multiple locations.

Most of my clients store their media on a SAN at work, and need to mirror their media to portable drives when the need to work from home. Not having to do this would be huge.

RE: [Avid-L2] Avid needs to become a PRIVATE company!

Does anyone have any experience using Premiere/FCPX in a very collaborative environment eg. more than ten editors working on the same project/media at the same time? The sort of thing you may see in large reality tv scenarios or content heavy tv shows? I always worry that if Avid ever went under, the large operations would struggle to find something as seemless as MC with an ISIS etc. I'd like to know if anyone else is up to the job in terms of being stable in a very large operation, everyone I seem to read singing the praises of FCP X or Premiere seems to be working on smaller scale productions which is fine but how do those products scale up?

I was just imagining Avid MC/Symphony with the same interop

with the Adobe apps and some of the positive things from Premiere added in.

Be careful what you wish for. Adobe has shown in the past to buy stuff and
kill it, in favour of other (not necessarily better) products.

Re: [Avid-L2] Avid needs to become a PRIVATE company!

The Adobe cloud set-up is pretty great.
Photoshop CS6 with 3D is really good (though the 3D still needs some work… and/or I need a tutorial!), and there are improvements to After Effects that make it worth it in my book too. Plus Acrobat Pro . . . And of course Premiere -- though I just fired it up in earnest for the first time the other day and found myself hoping Avid would borrow from it in some areas, but overall being very happy to be cutting with Media Composer. Hmmm… maybe Adobe can buy Media Composer/Symphony? Might be a good thing.
