Hi all,

What of we split the DaVinci forum into Hardware/gpu questions related and workflow related...
I see a lot of posts related to questions about hardware that are cluttering the forum....
I.m.o. posts that can be answered by reading the DaVinci confgi guide......

Just my 2 cents...
Regards Frank Wit

Agreed. I would also suggest a beginner and pro section.

Sometimes I feel like answering beginner questions - I was once a beginner - but sometimes not. With Davinci now free, the level of questions/answers has fallen below pro on the whole here.

I could t agree more..
It would also make the life of BMD easier if their staff in monitoring the n00b section because 99% of the questions are from people who did not read both the manual or config guide.

Would make sense to split the forum. But as for reading the config guide that doesn't help when the guides wrong!
I've build a system exactly to the guide for a PC and have issues.
And there's no real support from BM

May I remind you the Windows version is still in beta - things are supposed to break - and you should report the problems with as much details as you can, so they can figure it out and fix it for the initial release.

This isn't broke. It's just wrong in the config.
Fed back to BM and checked with Nvidia who confirmed the config info incorrectly lists the 280.26 driver for the Quadro 4000 card. So having read the config guide, ordered the spec'd hardware then found the required driver isn't compatible with the listed card. So end result is the software won't work.
So useful to have a place to share that info do others don't invest in hardware to find no working solution.
Still hopeful BM update the code to work but will have to wait until then.

No one is saying ALL config questions are time-wasters, just obvious ones from people who obviously are not working at a pro level. Like "How come my IMac won't run render Red is real time?"

I guess a realy up todate FAQ would be really helpful.
That way posters could be directed to get their answer there first.
If enough replies included the word FAQ and the link to it Google searches would bring that up and people may just start checking there first.
But from experience you'll always have people failing to search and just asking their question it's just the way it.
Over on the AVid community there has been a big influx of ex FCP editors and new Media Composer users and Avid have re-structured the forums to help new users and yet as a moderator there I see a lot of very basic posts being asked over and over again with search of the site bring up the answer quickly.

is anyone fro cretivecow considering this request ?

it's getting really crazy the amount of posts that new user asks about very basic hardware setup or purchase ...

checking this forum is becoming worthless for who is actually a colorist ...there is 1 post related to the software every ten post ...

We like this idea a lot. We're a bit buried in the crush between our latest issue of Creative COW Magazine being posted and NAB, but it will happen as quickly as it can.

Thanks for hanging on in the meantime!

Regards,
Tim

thanks a lot tim

off course i am not sure if you can divide it in Pro as well ...but that would be great ...

point is here there are 100's of post of beginners that are really not using the search button , same question asked 3 times in a week ... and mostly generic hardware question ...so bugs and real workflow discussion gets buried in this plethora of posts ...

thanks a lot

Maybe worth looking at the Avid community forum revised layout.
With do many news users coming over from FCP the forum where filling with new user basic questions. They now have a getting started foru.
