    We have been running FCP7 on 10.12.6 all year and our users commented that it felt “snappier” then ever. The only issues we’ve seen crop up in 10.11 is you can’t have the waveform scopes open when rendering as it will render everything whether it needs it or not. In 10.12 you can’t have the Aja control panel app open because it will cause a delay when playing the timeline or source window.

    You may want to consider XDCam 17.5Mb. It’s a little know XDCam variant. We choose it for use in our Avids because DNX36 does not support interlaced media and it’s half the size.

    Hi Bob,

    There are certainly plenty of productions that need 20 or less accessing a storage system. We are not one of them so single chassis NAS systems won’t cut it.

    You say it’s complicated but compared to SAN and even NAS with various server heads, RAID controllers, expansion chassises, and failover the Microsoft Storage Spaces looks far simpler. Windows Server 2016 boxes stuffed with SSD and HDD and ethernet to a switch… done! Like I said, I’m no fan of Windows and would much prefer a Unix/Linux based system but with SMB3 seemingly taking the lead a Windows based storage system makes some sense. Building a system with SuperMicro components would be dirt cheap.

    A true scale out system that adds iops and capacity with each server is what I’m looking for. The ability to replace old storage without migration is also a big plus.

    I am surprised there’s no way of moving just media into Resolve via some sort of log file. It certainly limits the use of third party logging apps and stifles integration with MAMs. Nobody wants a seq created for every shot brought in.

    Hi Salvador,

    Wow, your a blast from the past.

    The workflow I describe is linking media to a log file, in our case it’s Avid ALE logs. We bring in a camera card full of media with Tape ID and TC and then use the “Apply Log File..” in CatDV. If the media and log file have matching Tape/Reel ID and TC, the log entries will have the proper media linked in CatDV. This results in both the original camera card media and the ALE log clips being in the catalog.

    From what you describe this is not what you’re looking to do. But may be an alternative that would work.

    Thanks
    John

    We’ve seen that error caused by still images on the timeline or even a video clip that is some how damaged. Make a copy of the timeline and start deleting it in halves. If the error goes away it was something in the timeline you just deleted.

    We ran Mavericks last year on the old Mac Pro and did not see this behavior. This particular issue is due to something related to the NMP.

    Putting the folder name then a / before the catalog name in the Catalog name field did direct the catalog to the folder. I was doing it in the Group field.

    Hi Bryson,

    Thanks for the response.

    I’m having Worker create a daily restored file catalog.

    How do you keep Worker created catalogs from spamming the main Production Group? Do you create a Group specifically for Worker created catalogs?
