Tiger and M100i working fine
on May 12, 2005 at 2:37:30 pm

I recieved a new G5 dual 2.7 and expansion chassie and was a bit dismayed when told that I had to use tiger as my OS and could not install 10.3. so I decided to give it a try before sending the system back for a lesser G5 running Panther so that I could use m100 I've been editing full time for two days now including using m100 files in after effects for compositing. I've never been happier with a computer and have not had on issue with media 100. Tiger as an OS is not worth more that $10 for what you get compaired to 10.3.9
ENJOY

Please keep us informed. I have the same setup and I would love to test Tiger.

How much work have you done on it? My 8.2.2 xr is running stable as can be on 10.3.9 (G4 single 867mHz), but I really want to instal Tiger on the system for the extra bells and whistles.

keep us posted please!

Matt,
Can you tell me which expansion chasis (make/model) you purchased and what type of disk array/adapter card you use with this system? It is exciting to hear that things are working well for you under Tiger.
I also wondered if you knew whether it is possible to run FCP 5 on a system such as yours. (for HD projects or multi editing, etc.) Wasn't sure if Media 100 and FCP can live together.
Thanks!

I'm using the media 100 approved Magma 4 slot PCI to PCI chassie
Ive also installed an Atto FC 3305 fiber Card for communication with a Rorke Data Galaxy 16 bay Drive Array with just over a terabyte of striped and partitioned 10000 rpm drives. The Drives are connected to a Vixel 7100 1 gig fiber switch and 3 seperate media 100 systems
- Dual 2.7 G5 running Tiger
- Dual 1gig G4 Running Panther
- 800mgz G4 Running Panther

I also have two 450mgz G4s connected with eithernet to all systems so I can Use all non active Systems as an After Effects Render Farm

I've not had any problems running Final Cut 4 on the same System as M100 but my need for this has been strictly limited to basic Final cut operations as it is not our main NLE

Thank you for all the specifics, Matt! Very helpful as I plan my move from Media 100i ver 7.5 + OS/9 to something more compatible with today's world.
Are you running QT 7 or did you back down to the QT 6.5 that Media 100 specs for ver 8.2.2?
Thanks again,
Jim

We are running QT7 without problems with our 8.2.2. And with Tiger is like have a completely new computer. I think the major changes in QT7 are those related to the new HD codecs not for the QT engine.

Matt,
I noticed that you have both a G4 Dual 1GHz and a G5 Dual 2.7GHz running Media 100 8.2.2
I wondered if you notice much difference in responsiveness of the M100 application between these two computers. (obviously, rendering speed will be different - just wondering about things like working with clips, changing between active windows, opening bins, working with realtime effects, etc.)
I'm considering buying a used Dual 1.25GHz G4 to avoid the expansion chasis issue and want to balance that with any productivity gain possible under a faster G5.
Thanks for your take on this!

No Exessive increase in m100 function speed but a large difference in rendering
