[Oliver Peters] "Nope. I think it's absolutely worse with Premiere and FCPX. First of all, Avid's current storage is Nexis, and according to Avid, they've worked hard to make the other NLEs equal clients. So definitely ISIS is tweaked more for Avid.

Second, you are generally dealing with Avid-optimized media, that also helps. In my experience, both Premiere and FCPX don't perform nearly as well on shared storage than they do on local storage. Are your systems connected to ISIS as 1GigE or 10GigE? I would image that if you have 50 machines cranking with anything other than low-res proxies, your system will choke.

Not sure if its 1 Gig or 10 tbh - and admittedly Im not a super technical person - just show up and cut - never had to maintain a computer myself.

Its interesting that the NEXUS is that much different with NLES - I saw some people order new NEXUS gear only to have ISIS gear showup, with a NEXUS sticker slapped on? Might've been old stock.

What would be the best codec for our AE's to use for Premiere Proxies? Maybe I can pass on some info.
