John: December 2008 Archives

Avid Technology publishes a list of supported computers that will work correctly with the latest version of software. Unfortunately, there is always a risk when using an un-tested computer. Most common problems related to running Avid Media Composer on an unsupported machine are related to the graphics card or audio card that is installed on the system. In one example, I attempted to run Media Composer on a Dell 7700 workstation. Unfortunately, the on-board audio did not work with the Media Composer software.

If you run into a problem where your brand new Avid software does not support your computer's graphics card, all is not lost. Here's a quick tip for avoiding the 'Can't find any audio cards in your system' error message.

With the growing popularity of Final Cut Studio, some of us are forced to learn how to use multiple editing platforms. Sometimes, you may find a machine that has both Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Studio installed on it.

If you haven't used the LiveType application within Final Cut Studio, you're missing out on an incredible application. LiveType can be used to create some amazing effects with a minimum amount of effort. LiveType can also be used for complex video compositing, such as creating an animated video wall.

Believe it or not, there is some direct integration between Avid Media Composer and Apple LiveType. The procedure is very similar to how you would use LiveType with Final Cut Pro.
