Decklink Studio Set up for Avid / FCP7
on May 17, 2012 at 2:16:42 am

Hi all. I'm going to be setting up a new system next week and am looking for advice. I'll be putting a Decklink Studio 2 card into a new 8-core Mac Pro. The system will primarily be used for cutting on Avid Symphony 6 and FCP 7. My question is: should I partition the drive and have separate Avid and FCP sides? What about if I want to use Adobe Premiere? I don't currently use it, but will probably fiddle with it as it comes with the AE, Photoshop, etc suite. Will that need a partition too?

Much thanks in advance for any advice.

Jay

Best practice would probably be seperate partitions. I do have a test machine with all & they don't seem to cause any conflicts each other.

I have all on on system with no conflicts. However, you must be careful and not instantly do OS updates as soon as they are available. Avid and Adobe will be slower to approve using a software update than Apple.
