Hey everyone, Just wanted to share that yesterday I purchased a new Mac Mini. When I got home I installed Avid Media Composer Software 3.5 as posted on Avid's website (a 14-day trial) and it actually worked. I haven't done anything heavy with it, not sure when my system will bottom out... But I managed to import a .DV file and add a Color Correction plug-in on a new track. It played back fine without even having to render! (Coming from an office with an Avid XPress running on a Pentium III, this is a big deal...) Avid's new student pricing for the software is $300, I might make the purchase once I get an idea how far I can push the system. But Avid/Digidesign have a bad habit of not keeping track with current Operating Systems. It look Pro Tools like a year or something to run on Vista. Hopefully this will play nice with Quick Time X in September... I've been using Final Cut Express for my home editing, but I'll try my next music video in Avid MC. I'll post the results here. I know being an Avid is like being in a special club. FCP is the common NLE on these forums, but back in the day Avid was Apple exclusive.
