It`s a discontinued software package now. It runs fine in XP but now that I`ve upgraded my desktop machine to windows 7 64 bit I can`t get it to run! It will install but not function. I`ve tried running it in compatabillity mode with no joy plud when I run the error check it comes up with &quot;Compatability issues&quot; So I wondered if anyone else has any ideas. I`ve tried email the software author but am not very hopeful.</div> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/pixelpops-1#comments System Configurations Wed, 16 Oct 2013 21:36:05 +0000 Barry Hunter 1055862 at http://www.dvforums.com what! no 1394 firewire http://www.dvforums.com/forums/what-no-1394-firewire <div> I am looking at purchasing a new laptop... but for the life of me I can&#39;t locate one with a firewire port on it.... my 2 Canon cameras work just fine and I really don&#39;t want to go to the added expense of buying new cams....</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> can anyone suggest a good spec laptop that has&nbsp; ieee1394 or at least the facility to add a pcmcia card</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> cheers in advance.... :-)</div> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/what-no-1394-firewire#comments System Configurations Tue, 01 Oct 2013 09:01:04 +0000 Doogs 1055846 at http://www.dvforums.com suggested computer specs for Avid 7.2 Window 7, also compatible for potential migration to Media Composer http://www.dvforums.com/forums/suggested-computer-specs-avid-72-window-7-also-compatible-potential-migration-media-compose-0 <div> For many years, based in Spain, I&#39;ve successfully used the following system to edit with Avid 7.2: <div> Intel(R) Core TM(2) CPU 6300 @1.86 GHz with 3GB of RAM, 2 internal HD, LG BR burner, Window XP profess. and nVidia Quadro FX580<br /> The system almost fully meets my editing (also HD) requirements&nbsp; and I do not feel the need to switch to Media Composer at this stage. </div></div><p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/suggested-computer-specs-avid-72-window-7-also-compatible-potential-migration-media-compose-0" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/suggested-computer-specs-avid-72-window-7-also-compatible-potential-migration-media-compose-0#comments System Configurations Wed, 28 Aug 2013 16:56:32 +0000 fabiobezoari 1055802 at http://www.dvforums.com Changing over. http://www.dvforums.com/forums/changing-over <div> Hello everyone.&nbsp;</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> </div><p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/changing-over" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/changing-over#comments System Configurations Mon, 05 Aug 2013 16:18:17 +0000 flyingscotsman 1055766 at http://www.dvforums.com New PC configuration. http://www.dvforums.com/forums/new-pc-configuration <div> Hi Guys</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Using Premiere CS6.&nbsp; Got 3 drives.&nbsp; What the best configuration of files.&nbsp; At present it is.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> SSD 250gb - Windows and other programmes</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 1TB HD - .Scratch Disk.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> 3TB HD - Captured files and other media.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Any suggestions for fast editing?</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> Thanks</div> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/new-pc-configuration#comments System Configurations Mon, 29 Apr 2013 14:32:22 +0000 busbyvideo 1055599 at http://www.dvforums.com Card reader made SSD into H: http://www.dvforums.com/forums/card-reader-made-ssd-h <div> An interesting oddity that may help someone in the future.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> The starting point was to build a quick, cheap computer for the office.
