Congratulations Wick,

The new features are really exciting.

Matrox support is awesome.

Unfortunately it will be sunny here this weekend, but I can't wait to try it out.

It came to my attention this morning that the Media 100 HDx cards seem to get short shrift in the Release Notes.

This can understandably give an HDx user the wrong impression that M100 Suite is not for them. To be clear... Media 100 Suite v1 absolutely DOES work with HDx hardware. The new features (excluding those related to progressive media or "newer" frame rates) work on HDx systems.

I mentioned "licensing changes" in the subject and then nothing about it in the message.

As I hinted, the "unclear HDx support in the Release Notes" issue" was brought to my attention by a colleague of mine via email, an email in which they had other questions for me as well. When I started the post, I copied and pasted from their email to the subject of the post and forgot to remove the "licensing changes" part.

Sorry for any confusion that may have caused.

Some questions:
Can we work using ProRes 4444 codec?
What about AVC-INTRA?

Wick: I am a registered user. When I got home and downloaded the new Suite 1, during installation it came to the part where I thought I would find a unique product code. The space for the code was BLANK, and the message appeared my trial period for the product had expired. Did I do something wrong?

Hey Daniel,

Not necessarily, send an email at

They have a quick an painless method to make this kind of road block "go away".

Since this knowledge could be used for "less than honest" purposes, I'm sure you understand why I can't post any more detail than that in a public forum ;-)

Couldn't agree more! It's a pity that so much damage was done by the previous owners and so much ground lost. Whenever I extol the virtues of Media 100 to other film makers, which I do constantly, I get blank looks and references to FCP or, heaven forbid, Adobe Premier. I know publicity costs money but the message should really be spread more widely because the product is so good and, above all, so much more user friendly than FCP.

I agree totally with the comments by Michael Slowe. I get the same comments but including the mention (of course) of Avid! I have always found FCP full of menus and sub menus which confuse me at times (and many others too). M100 has always been very easy and powerful to use and few seem to know it's out there - that's a shame.

I think getting it back into the Universities would help raise awareness.
[Uni of Westmin switched over to FCP one year before I left - I was the last year to learn/use Media100, subsequent years learnt/used FCP instead - I should point out I was a journalism student, not video].

Only trouble is, since Avid and FCP are more widely used, students arguably need to know them moreso. That said, Media100 is a professional piece of kit.

I'd also like to add a congratulations to the Media 100 team for a wonderful job keeping my favorite editing system going. The first system I learned editing on was a Media 100 3.5 system in high school. I've been using Media 100 for the last 12 years as much as I can since I haven't found a more streamlined editing atmosphere. Bought my first lowest end Media 100 system while in college in 2002. Now with the multicam features, I can stop using FCP for my projects that call for it and continue to use my favorite interface.

If you are a Media 100 user, you all know how intuitive the editing interface is and how it makes you look at things different than most editing systems. I wish they would get the word out there about this product more since so many people should be using it. If people actually spent some time thinking in the Media 100 style, they'll realize what they've been missing.
