    Nothing wrong with their claims, except for that of being first. BRAW is partially baked. I still prefer it to ARRI RAW and its limited control.

    Cineform had lots of advantages, it was headed in...

    The QNAP TVS-x72T3 units allow you to disable the IP/Net functionality of the TB3 connection and gain more performance. That said, it’s still not as fast as a dedicated TB3 DAS unit like the Areca...

    The Areca 4038 seems like a reasonable SAS/SATA solution. The dual 8644 ports can supply an aggregate 96Gbps of throughput if run in SAS 12G mode — you have to install SAS 12Gb HDDs or SSDs. Using...

    The optical Thunderbolt 3 cable (30 meters) is working! That said, I don’t know if I’d buy another unless prices drop by quite a bit. They offer a great solution for distancing peripherals, storage,...

    Just wanted to stop by and say a little something about some DAS vs. NAS options at the moment, in particular talking about QNAP, Areca and Promise. Iíve been using DAS on my workstations in the...

    I opted for 256GB of non-ECC in my 3960x build. So far, so good. I’ll let you guys know if any of my bits get scrambled by cosmic rays or a transient cloud of Radon or something.

    Let's put it this way... The new Mac Pro is an amazingly well thought out piece of kit that delivers everything it promised. It comes at a high price tag, but does not disappoint.

    That said,...

    APFS is just for your main system SSD/HDD and other media you specifically format as such. It should not have any bearing on the MiniMags or their performance. If it’s a recent conversion to APFS...

    So far it seems Afterburner is purpose-built and entirely specific to ProRes acceleration.

    EDIT> Jarred says I'm wrong. :)

    Yes. I’ve had 256GB in my primary Resolve box for the last 5 years and it’s a dual 10-core and for complex renders and data sets I can use it all. I say it’s my Resolve box and that is the system I...

    Those MPX hard drive bays were not showing when it all went live, but I guess it probably took a bit to get it online and cookies and caches to clear. ...Still waiting for the SSD storage modules. ...

    Never mind on my Pro Display comment above. It must have been a cookie glitch. Can order them now too. People already posting pics of the system and taking delivery of some readily available...

    Playing with the pricing... Max config is $50K, pretty much where I expected it to land.

    GPU pricing is a joke.

    Can’t order > 4TB onboard SSD yet. No MPX storage systems available yet. No...

    Will be interesting to see GPU pricing. Might make more sense to go with two separate Vega Pro II MPX modules instead of the Duo if you want/need two GPUs. They are a bit old... Going to be...

    I’m fully expecting the 16-core, possibly the 24-core to be the sweet spot. Pricing structure will say a lot, but I think 16-core with 96GB RAM and a Vega Pro II Duo MPX GPU would be the target...

    Unfortunately USB, especially A to C, won't help with Thunderbolt. USB-C connectors may be the same, but missing the active electronics for full TB compatibility and even on straight copper USB-C to...

    Apple made good and delivered it yesterday as promised. Well, UPS made it happen I suppose. Still getting it set up, but now that I've spent more time on it I just have to say it's nice to have a...

    It seems the cables are almost ready, but there’s just not enough demand to really push them out at the moment. Our little niche in the industry isn’t going to do it. They’re all waiting for USB 4...

    I think trying to identify any contemporary glass as being superior based on a PL mount is just wrong. Most contemporary lens offerings are available in multiple mount types, many with modular or...

    Unfortunately you can’t go that route with adapters. You could connect at Thunderbolt 2 RAID via a TB3 to TB2 adapter and cable.

    Longer TB3 cables are about to ship. There are some 10ft (3m)...

    Because it gives wicked sharp 4K. Gives me extra pixels to work with over a 4K delivery, etc.. Yes, 8K is the future and I already have two 8K cameras. Komodo is filling a gap in terms of size and...

    I think we all have projects that Komodo would be perfect for. ;)

    I’m probably going to be building me a Komodo kit that goes pretty much everywhere with me.
