"Really not available for Macs"

January 11, 2012  |  By newtomac

 |  Version: Avid Xpress Pro 5.8.4

Pros

None, I can't use it.

Cons

Apparently AVID woke up and made this not available for new Macs. Looks like they realized it was too good and basically absorbed this program into Media Composer 6 which is 2500 bucks!
None of the less expensive offered by AVID/Pinnacle are compatible with Mac Systems

Summary

Avid doesn't seem to know whether is wants to get in the Con/Prosumer market when it comes to Mac users. I would buy this product for 300 easy if it was available as an introductory into the AVID family, but now it looks like Adobe will have to do. What a shame.

What's new in version 5.8.4
  • When loading a progressive master clip into an interlace project, you will be prompted to perform a transcode. If you try to perform the transcode, you will receive a message indicating the "Transcode cannot be completed because the source contains an unsupported resolution." This is as designed. The editing application does not support transcoding from progressive to interlaced material.
  • Previously, you might have received an error when transcoding clips from OMF to MXF with no change in resolution. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, the source timecode might have shifted when performing an edit while capture. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, when performing a multi resolution ingest, parameters such as Tape name, Duration, and Tracks, might have changed. This caused problems with transferring clips between sites and archiving. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, the Pan & Zoom effect used drive letters when accessing the image to be used for the effect. This does not work in a collaborative environment because the drive is only valid on the system that created the effect. UNC paths are now used.
  • Previously, when logged in using a non-Administrator account, a capture or digital cut might not have been frame accurate on the Symphony Nitris. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, HD-SDI embedded audio output might have sounded distorted on some audio devices. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, HD-SDI embedded audio was not being output to the Panasonic AJ-HD1700 successfully. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, when you selected Render IN to OUT, not all the effects might have been rendered. This has been fixed.
  • Previously, when the editing application was indexing files, in a non Avid Interplay environment, you would receive out of memory errors. This has been fixed.
