Is there a way to save to and run transcoded bin media from my internal drive just to test the video playback performance that way? The "filter out" button is unchecked, but my internal drive is grayed out and I can't select it as a drive to transcode or import to. I'm i missing something here?
I believe starting with OSX Lion (10.7) the system drive defaults to read only access at the root level where Avid writes media. You can either enable read & write access there, or use an external drive.
This thread goes over how to enable read & write access.
