Setting Mac Pro up for "Movie projector"-mode :)
on Aug 26, 2010 at 11:48:09 am

Hi. I am going to be projecting a 15 min. movie onto a big screen, using my Mac Pro as the player. Maybe through Final Cut Pro Cinema Movie Mode, or through Quicktime player, or through VLC player.

I just need to be sure that the chance of things popping up while the movie is playing, is minimal. Of course running Skype and other messenger services are out of the question. And turning all other programs off. But is there anything else, I need to worry about, just to be sure? Thinking about system automatic upgrade or other stuff?

Any recommendations?

Also, what is better and safer player: FCP, VLC or Quicktime Player?

Movie spec is: ProRes 422, HD.
Computer specs are: 2009 Mac Pro, running with Apple Raid Card, and with 4 media drives in a RAID 0+1

Make sure before your presentation to click on your wireless icon in the menu bar and turn off your airport card. This will prevent your system from checking for software updates, thus preventing the update dialog from popping up.
