CC 2017 Mac Intel Tower Reviews

Is everyone satisfied with their upgrade to CC 2017 on Mac Intel Towers with AJA cards? We are probably sticking with Yosemite for a while but are considering moving to CC 2017....any major issues anyone seeing with our config? We have one system moved into it but haven't been able to really run it thru its paces.

Thoughts welcome.

I found performance with AJA intolerable. Lots of issues. I switched to a Blackmagic card and things are much better.

Odd, since, I also use Avid and FCP (for revisiting old projects) and I think AJA was better for those NLE's.

Curious which AJA product. We are running all LHi's in our Mac towers and they have been flawless while our Blackmagic 4K card has been fussy. We upgraded all our video cards for more Vram and processing power on the GPU. That helped along with an SSD PCI boot up drive.

But AJA has been solid for years, no matter the OS or editing software.

Had the Kona LHe Plus (the newer model, not the old unsupported one). I also work at a place that has an AJA iO 4K, and its pretty lousy with Premiere, too.

Not a real fan of BMD overall, but I needed something that works.

I don't have aja cards, but tried CC2017 on OSX 10.12. It crashed two times in under an hour...

I tried using a new Kona Card which was meant to display 4K. Now our project is unique in that we want to play 60fps, and also work with 4K. The result was a choppy playback all the time.

We gave up using PP CC with the AJA card and opted to view our VR material via more graphics cards inside our PC. Nvidia graphics cards.

Plus we maxed out the RAM and used SSDs. Playback is still not as fluid as an AVID - but there again this is 4K.

Hi Marcus,
I am sorry to hear you have had problems - especially since the KONA 4 is completely capable of delivery 4K P60.
I am curious if you contacted support? We would love to help!
