    Would anyone have experience in opening an OS MAC AVID v20 timeline on a PC (built to spec compatible with AMC)?

    I need to complete a documentary film created on MAC on my new PC.

    Thank you,

    The projects are cross platform. However linked media may loose the path as they present differently on Mac and PC so you may end up having to relink media.

    Hi, I’m also told for AMC one needs a special card to use an external monitor on a PC.

    My computer is newly built to AMC spec, with a Dell NVidia quadro RTX 4000<font size=”4″>. I have not yet installed AMC, I want to be sure I have everything in place first.

    <font size=”4″>Thank you for any specifics.</font><font size=”4″>

    Special card? You’ll probably need that on any computer. You could use a Blackmagic Mini Monitor or AJA T-tap which will give you HDMI out to a video monitor. Both these use a Thunderbolt connection on your computer. Does the PC have this?
