Are Media100 7.5(OS9) and 8.2.2(OSX) compatible?
Or is it like Media100sw where once you've saved it in the newer program, it can't be opened by the older program?

Older versions never could open files from newer versions. V8.2 e.g. has (up to) 24 audio tracks and unlimited graphics tracks which were not supported by V7.5.

Okay, just thought I'd ask as they're both offerred in the tune up deal, so for a moment, I wondered if they were equal counterparts on OS9 and OSX.

I did the tune up deal. Am now running 8.2.2. It's great! 1st you have to upgrade to OSX, I have panther, no problems.

My Mac is dual bootable OSX/OS9.

I currently have OSX 10.2.8 will that suffice?

I'm currently struggling with a project, and am keen to delegate, but the project has all been done on Media100 7.5.

If I upgrade my system to 8.2.2 - will projects then be inter-swappable with Media100sw, or will I have to export from M100sw as a Quicktime mov still, as I would currently have to do now?

Atm, I'm thinking my quickest & cheapest way to delegate, would be to get a second OS9 Mac off ebay, chuck my spare Vincent card in it (I stopped using it when I got my P6000), and get a freelancer to use that as a second system.

Following my last reply, I've just noticed an 8.2.3a update to Media100i on the media100 website.
It mentions "Media 100i is now compatible with Media 100 HD and Media 100 sw. This allows you to seamlessly move media between systems."

So would another delegation method be:

[Ajmetz] "It mentions "Media 100i is now compatible with Media 100 HD and Media 100 sw. This allows you to seamlessly move media between systems.""

It is not possible to open timelines from sw or HD in Media 100 i. You only can export self-contained clips from sw and import them into Media 100 i for mastering.

Thanks. =)

I've had clearence from my business partner to purchase a second OS9 system.

I do plan to upgrade to M100 HD, but most likely won't be able to afford to do so till next year, plus I'd like to see what happens at WWDC in a week or so.

Eitherway, I now realise it's likely I'll have to buy a second firewire drive and copy over the media files for this project. But at the same time I'm wondering - is there any way to have media shared between two systems without having to duplicating the media data?

For now, I'm assuming "no", so will likely duplicate the data onto a second hard drive anyway, but let us know if I'm wrong, and there is a simple way to share. ;-)
Cheers.

And sorry to be hogging the boards of late. =P

Am sure some more interesting people will come along soon and post fab new stuff about v11.5, instead of waffling on about 7.5. ;-)
