Congrats guys. It'll still be a while for me before we can jump fulltime into Leopard as we're a heavy after effects shop. So we won't be able to think about switching until Adobe decides to join the party.

I'll definitely be putting in a spare drive though so I can try out the drivers and see how this thing goes.

in cooperation with all the rediculous posts on this forum (when will Leopard drivers be available for AJA), how's this - "when will AJA force Adobe to get their drivers written, so my entire edit room will be functional again". It's easier to complain to AJA than it is to Adobe ! And can I trade in my Kona SD card ! When will there be Leopard drivers for the Kona SD card ? How can I sell my Digital Voodoo 64AV ?

[Itamar Kool] "Just one complaint: still no support for Premiere Pro CS 3. Will that ever happen???"

Premiere Pro CS3 (And After Affects CS3) does not work on Leopard yet, so I don't think AJA can release driver support until Adobe gets their end worked out first.

According to Adobe's website, it still says "expected December 2007."

Well, let's hope that once Adobe is ready for Leopard, that AJA will have their drivers ready for Premiere Pro. I did see it working at the IBC last septembre, but AJA hasn't said a word anout it yet

This is the forum that Ron tried to start, (but not on the AJA forum) -

so before I get in trouble - here is the quick answer -
Nightwish (Finland)
After Forever
Delain
Within Temptation
Epica
Kamelot (from Tampa, FL, but they live near you !).

After NAB2008, I will travel to LA to see Epica perform.

Gee Bob, I feel ignorant. I know Within Temptation. Heard the name Epica somewhere and that is about it.
And now to get back to AJA... Finally installed the new driver, restarted; everything looked OK untill I made the easy set up for IMX 50 MB. Then FCP quit a couple of times. Uninstalled; reinstalled; now it seems to work OK. Keep my fingers crossed again.
But if you ever come to Holland to see these 'fabulous Dutch musicians', you are most welcome in Westerwijtwerd if you ever find it

If FCP is "quiting" by itself, please trash your FCP preferences. If you dont' know how to do this, let me know, and I will list the instructions on how to do this - it's easy.

Ron Lindeboom
OT: Bob Zelin's list of Dutch bands/singers
on Dec 17, 2007 at 6:08:21 pm

While speaking of Dutch bands, the following list was submitted by [Bob Zelin] "...here is the quick answer -
After Forever, Delain, Within Temptation, Epica."


A couple of other Dutch bands that I have found recently are Nice Beaver and Ricocher. Ricocher's "Quest for the Heartland" is interesting with some complex time changes, etc., but like Alan Holdsworth's albums, the singer is not one of my favorites. But their harmonies help make up for that deficiency.

Nice Beaver also has a singer that I am not overly fond of (I like him even less than Ricocher's singer) but the music, like many Dutch bands, spans areas and influences that American bands would never touch. Very classical and very complex.

But my favorite Dutch band of all time is and will likely remain Kayak. A great band.

Best regards,

ya must have left your thinking cap somewhere else... or perhaps david W hit the nail on the head - is there any white foam on your collar?

the blurb at the top of the forum talks about leopard and CS3.
OTOH itamar said
let's hope..., that AJA will have their drivers ready for Premiere Pro.

perfectly logical statement, as the main point he was making has nothing to do with the blurb about leopard/adobe CS3 but is about AJA>PP

or am I missing something else?
golly gosh

do a CLEAN install of Leopard- not an upgrade - that's right - wipe off your hard drive, and fully reinstall the OS (not an upgrade) - a pain in the ass - absolutely - then load in FCP, and launch it, then load your AJA drivers. Then you will be in business.

Do you have the time to do this - NO
Do you have to do this - YES.

upgrades are fine for consumers. I did that with all our laptops and iMacs. It's the pro machines running pro-apps that you want to start with a clean install.

[walter biscardi] "upgrades are fine for consumers."

I just heard a horror story of a family friend who bought a new mac laptop and took it to the genius bar to do the firewire transfer of all of her information to the new mac from her laptop (Migration Assistant). Well, due to that sweet Leopard bug that erases all information from both drives if the firewire transfer goes bad, she lost all of her info. Some of it she had backed up, but her contacts and email are gone forever. This was done at the Genius Bar, I thought I'd reiterate that. Funny(?) thing is her husband is a major IT dude, but does not speak OSX. I know, I know none of this would have happened to anyone on the Cow, but manure happens.

Bummer.

That is definitely a bad deal. I've only used that tool once and it just seemed like my machine ran incredibly slow after doing that. So in the future I just carbon cloned by main drive and then used that to move stuff to the new computer.

But that is indeed a bad bug.

This is great, because I was afraid that I'd have nothing to do this weekend other than try to learn Color & Motion 3. Now it looks like I'll be able to install new Kona drivers, more RAM, & replace my DVD burner to boot!

Oh, joy of joys! Wait! Do I hear violins?

Perhaps other COW-ers already knew this but...

Don't forget to save your settings before switching to 5.0. Seems mine have reverted back to default. Ugh. A warning from AJA woulda been nice...

Or am I missing something?

Hey Jeremy:

Yeah, my bad. I still think there should be some documentation or better yet, a way to not affect your settings in software...

That said, I guess I'll remember it next time 'round.

I have repeatedly submitted feedback to Apple to not include favorites in the general preferences, but they don't like listening to lil ole me. I can take a wild stab as to why they do ti they way they do, and it is probably for decent reasons, but it still annoying.

The work around is to setup a project with blank clips in it (or slugs) and apply your filter stack settings to those slugs. That way, you will always have the favorites embedded in a clip for future use. If you need a favorite, simply open up that project and find what you need.
