Windows Resolve less stable than Mac?
on Sep 8, 2012 at 12:46:14 am

We have about 4 Resolve systems in our studio. 3 are Mac based and fairly stable. We have added a Windows Supermicro box for 4K work per the exact specs in the config guide (2 GPUs currently, 4 as soon as the GPU Chassis arrives) and we're finding it very "crashy". The only place we veer from spec is that we have 64GB of RAM instead of 16GB but I don't think that should be an issue. We also have the full Resolve panel set on 25ft direct attached USB cables which sometimes have issues staying connected (we've ordered a the USB extender). It was crashing in Resolve 9 beta 3 and now in Resolve 9 (full release). Could this be from intermittend USB connections? Seems weird.

could be also you machine setup.

"home" built windows machines are tricky in some situations.

Our 4 GPU PC based one is not more unstable than my 1 GPU home OSX system.
But on the big iron I am doing much more crazy things..
Yes, I have around three crashes a day right now, but ONLY is I am using masks.
Editing points and softness kills Resolve 9 the same way it killed 8.
If I use the sliders or panel to manipulate mask, its rock solid.
Single points confuse it
