Has anyone upgraded to the latest software version and still run Studio 2? Just wondering if it works, any improvements or best to wait till we upgrade to FCS 3?

What Jeremy says. And I will say Studio 3 is incredibly stable. We installed Studio 3 on three systems mid stream to all sorts of projects and it's just rocking along. I have a huge documentary with 82 hours of material and we switched to FCP 7 this week about halfway into the project.

Are you guys saying dont updgrade to Kona Control Panel 6.5 if I am still running FCP Studio 2? I just did that this morning and am getting all kinds of bugs on the system now.

Mac OS X 10.5.8 2x2.66 Ghz Dual Core Xeon, 4Gb ram. FCP Studio 2 (version 6.0.6), Kona LHe, Medea Raid....Atto SCSI...

Yes, 6.5 is for FCS 3.

Strange. I am running FCP 7 and I have updated to 6.0.5 AJA drivers. Playing out over HD-SDI to a monitor is now choking FCP, causing the dreaded beach ball and ultimately a crash. I cannot use FCP unless I turn off external video.

You mean 6.5? Did you uninstall using the uninstaller, then reinstall the new drivers?

Did you do a complete Clean Install of Studio 3 doing the correct method of completely erasing your hard drive, then installing the OS, running all updates, then installing Studio 3 and installing all updates?

We have three systems running perfectly fine with Studio 3 and the latest Kona 3 drivers.

If you simply performed an "upgrade" on top of your current system, well then you're just asking for issues.

I did a clean install of everything! I actually installed a new hard drive and new OS!

I uninstalled the 6.5 driver and then installed the 6.5 NND driver and it is working fine. Strange...
