Avid MC 6.0: Looking good!
on Jul 15, 2011 at 2:45:43 am

.
Avid MC 6 features revealed.

New GUI, no loss of features, 64-bit, Kona support, DNxHD 44444, ProRes encoding on both Mac and PC, more Red Giant plugin support, more audio tools. DAMN Avid, good show!

Anyone know if MC supports Open CL or CUDA? Even if MC 6 turns out to still have stability issues when installed with lots of other applications, I'm thinking with a 12 or 16 core running Lion, you could just run a second Lion install as a dedicated sandbox, and then maybe another one for ProTools, with the rest of your applications on the primary boot install. I may end up back on an Avid.

More here.

I want to know if MC6 will support shared filesystem storage.

Best,
Andy

If it's there, I guarantee you can completely turn it off. :-)

It's called "sync locks" and it's been there for oh, about a decade and a half. And yes, you can turn them off.

Oh, well, yeah. I was hoping it could become friendly with shared-disk filesystems (like StorNext). I guess Avid has to make a living somewhere. Still addressing storage like it's 1989.

I've said this before but I'm glad Apple is bowing out of the pro scene. They don't deserve to be there. Their ADHD finally got the best of them.

Reading my mind again. They need to get rid of the "virtualized volume" requirement. While they are at it, they need to get rid of the code in ProTools that checks the storage and has a very narrow idea of which storage and storage-types are kosher.

You are reading my mind!!! With support for other QuickTime I/O boards out of the way, this would be the last stumbling block to an easy transition.

does it have a multicam facility anything remotely like/or as good as FCP7?

As I'm tempted....

Yeah, Avid has a very powerful multi-cam capability.

Not to burst any bubbles, but a rewrite of an application (granted missing features from older coded versions and missing those for whatever timing/shareholder/ technology advance-roadmap issues) is no indication of Apple leaving the pro space (as if we all agreed what "pro means"). They just really bungled this release (in our eyes).

MC6 looks really great. Though I am not counting Apple out on this one. I don't expect any company to do things right all of the time and boy did they mess this launch up (from our opinion it seems).

Apple has an entire ecosystem of products from hardware to software that few companies can touch when it comes to harnessing technology, human interface, quality, and lest we not forget - leading many industries to follow them even if they didn't do "it" first.

I have now cut three projects with FCPX/Motion 5 and am absolutely loving this application and really look forward to it's potential.

Perhaps AVID is significantly smarter in the way MC has evolved as of late, but I think we'll see the fruits of AV Foundation, OpenCL, FCP X (and it's liking by developers), media creation and distribution in general, Thunderbolt, and DAMS. There's a lot of things that it seems Apple has been refining and working on over the past few years we have yet to see the full benefit of, but from what I can tell, the future looks bright. Really bright.

In the meantime, I'd be more than willing to take a look at MC6 and even Premier, but my FCS3 still works great (even though I'd already rather work in FCP X with my AF100 content).

Happy cutting.

Wow, love that redesigned GUI; it looks like what I'm used to with CS5. I downloaded the Avid 5.5 demo but the complex and unintuitive GUI put me off. This 6.0 though looks a lot different.

Re: Avid MC 6.0: Looking good! - not so good to me

That is WRONG! No Pro res encoding support for PC based Avids.
I have a G5 running FCP6 and MC3 that does ProRes import and export to all the AVID stations in the facility, allowing the use of AJA KIPRO.
So, cut the crap, Avid, ProRes Support is not new in Avid for Mac. It's new for PC, but of course, you can't give Avid users a perfect workflow, you must disable ProRes export, because that's how Avid works.
Maybe we'll see ProRes exports in MC10.
