  • Scratch disk over Ethernet wierdness

    I’ve read Apple’s KBase article on scratch disks over Ethernet.

    I have one system that for some reason used a mounted drive as a scratch disk. By and large this works fine. But I now have two confirmed complaints from that system in which clips were captured, but had no reel name or timecode associated with them.

    One one of these, the editor swore he had logged and captured his clips from a DigiBeta with Rs-422 control and using the standard Easy setup for this.

    So has anyone seen such wierdness with clips captured over Ethernet? I know its an unsupported situation, but just curious to find if this wierdness is a result of this.

    Yes, I have read reports of timecode tracks being lost with capturing to ethernet drives. Absolutely no idea why.
