Re: [MMUG] Time Machine

Hi Re:co I seem to have failed at the first hurdle. This is a screen shot of the Terminal window I noticed that I had entered two forward slashes in the path name but it didn't make a difference. Im guessing I've done something wrong for this to have happened but don't have a Scooby Doo what the error is!

Re: [MMUG] End of the Mac Pro on Tuesday?

Interesting discussion guys…. I use and train both FCP X and Premiere Pro. Both have their pros and cons, but both are very efficient to use on my MacBook Pro 17" i7 with 16GB of RAM and my iMac 27" with 32GB RAM. Both machines have supported GPU for Premiere Pro so I get the full benefit of Mercury playback. FCP X also rocks on these machines and performs incredibly well on the 15" Retina MacBook Pro I've been using as a loaner for the last couple of weeks. I've not had call to use FCP 7 at all in the last 18 months (well, I did open it up once a few weeks back to help extort an OMF) and if I do open it I'm reminded of how much better things are now. My thinking is that to refer to Premiere Pro as "FCP 8" does no-one any favours, least of all us as editors. Also, thinking FCP X is "iMovie Pro" is also just as misleading. At the end of the day we use the tools that work for us. At the end of the day it's about the product we produce for our clients, not the tool.

Hi Rick, I jumped ship to p pro Cs5.5 and then 6 which is really fcp8! All the speed you needed with native editing, no pr res file size nightmares using xdcam ex or avchd or transcoding and the same look and feel (ish) of FCP7. It's like going back to the dark ages of tape when have to open fcp7. I don't think more than a handful of pro video editors use fcpx. The bonkers event library was the killer I have hundreds of hour long video projects that need to be done and archived and I need the nvidia quadro graphics card to do massive heavy lifting on edits and renders.

I recommend the Aldi Gin of which you may have heard lately. It won an award at the International Spirits Convention so I got some recently. It's £10 a bottle and I think it's jolly good stuff.

Re: [MMUG] End of the Mac Pro on Tuesday?

Just out of interest, are you going to sign up for Creative Cloud or stick with CS6? I use Photoshop CS5 on both Mac and PC(work) and TBO once you're in Adobe's environment it's very similar. Wouldn't do it through choice because of all the grief that comes with Windows(can anyone BELIEVE Windows 8. I just fell over laughing when I tried it. On a tablet. I thought it was a deliberate windup until the office MS guru assured me it was MEANT TO BE LIKE THAT!!!)
