StoreNext is pretty much Xsan. This is a file level locking. In other words, everyone connects to the same drive. Avid doesn’t work ideally in this environment. If you could create a volume for each editor, then make the editor you are on read and write to your volume, but only read others then this will work.
The Avid creates a folder called Avid MediaFiles at the root of the drive. This becomes an issue when two systems try to read and write to the same folder at the same time due to the way Avid tracks it’s media.

Making sure no overlapping monitors is a good idea.
What type of system are you on. Mac or PC. Are you software only, or do you have Avid hardware. Describe it if you do not know what it is.
This will help. I would bet you have an improper version of the video driver if on pc. Go under c:program filesAvidUtilites and install the latest Nvidia driver. Reboot and try again.

In my experience, this is 2 things.
1. A failing disk.
2. Improper permissions on the disk.
Is this Mac or PC? Firewire, USB or SCSI.

There is an effect called pan and zoom. Apply this to a clip in your timeline. Go into the effect editor and click on the minus sign in the upper left corner. Choose your hi res graphic, and it will allow you bring it in higher res, and do moves on it. This is the best Avid only way of doing it.
There is a plugin from stagetools.com that does it better, but costs.
I believe there is also a BCC effect that does it as well.

What you are probably speaking of is field rendering. Interlaced material has 2 fields per frame of video. It is usually Lower or Odd, but when you take footage in from another program, it may be set wrong or to automatic. Make sure if you have the option for field rendering that is is Lower or Odd.

That is quite strange. Adding the 3GB patch should make it work fine. You are adding these in pairs, right? The xw8000 requires it. ADM is Audio Device Manager, which means there is a syncrhonization going on between the audio and video. So Ram is not caching properly. I would confirm you have the correct ram, and it is interleaved properly.
