Hi guy, I’m new in this forum, my name is mario and I’m an editor and 2d compositor with AE and Combustion. For editing I use Avid MC.


The reason to get into this forum is becaise I saw the great review videomaker did on the Dell Precision T7600.


I’m planning to buy one of them, but the one that you reviewed was top notch, about $12,000.  The one I will order is $6,000, half of that.


Normally I work with HD footage but I want to have enough power to handle 4k if necessary.

Avid Announces the Release of Avid DS 11

Avid Announces the Release of Avid DS 11

It's easy to blame amateur equipment for the amateur look of a project when you're a beginner. Many of us play the hand we're dealt when it comes to producing video. We use the camera we can afford, and we make the best of the editing system we have. We're no strangers to using workarounds to perform even the most basic tasks. Some might say this builds character, and they're probably right. But as your skills increase, and your equipment begins to limit your creativity, you'll eventually need to spring for something better.

Love Avid Studio. About to set up new computer when Ivy Bridge comes out and would like to know if anyone knows if there is any benefit in using the Nvidia Quadro 4000 video card over Ivy Bridge internal HD4000. Or would Nvidia GTX580 be OK or is this still an overkill? Or would just using Ivy Bridges HD4000 be OK?


Adobe Offers Half-Priced Switch From Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro X

Adobe Offers Half-Priced Switch From Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro X
Just this last week, Adobe decided to take advantage of the dissatisfaction with Final Cut Pro by announcing an upgrade program for anyone who has bought any version of Apple Final Cut Pro or Avid Media Composer. Basically, those who make the switch will get a 50 percent discount on either Adobe Premiere CS5.5 or Adobe CS5.5 Production Premium.

After having to reinstall Liquid 7.2 and updating to 4296 everything works except when I export out Mpeg 2 or AVI including fuse. What happens is the cross dissolves and titles have either green overlay or horizontallines running across.

Now window Media Video and Quick times files are fine. I assume it's an encoding problem with Mpeg and AVI, perhaps I do not have something I need. I'm not even sure how to word this problem to search on the closed Avid Liquid forum.
