    I’m going to go out on a limb and say yes, as there are models listed if you dig in the OS. I don’t have a Mac Pro here or available and no TB3 PCIe expanders that would work to test so can’t try it...

    This for sure. On all the exterior shots, day or night, I saw nothing that would keep me from using any of these cameras. And nothing that would indicate I couldn’t grade each of these cameras to...

    Would have been nice to see #8 and #9 in all settings.

    The first night exterior setup broke consistency with #4 and again with #7. Is this just how it worked out for some weird reason or is it...

    Read through that... 99.9% of all their issues could be eliminated by running fixed IPs and proper name server for NetBIOS/ Bonjour name management so they don't get ghosts and echos if IPs change...

    I should also say that Apple trying to kill OSX Server is still speculation by some. There is no outward sign of that and they are promoting the Mac Pro, in particular the rack mount configuration,...

    Apple is not ending support for SMB and AFP or network file sharing, NAS, etc... Well, they are on their server end of things. It looks like Mac OS Server is going to finally be put to pasture, as...

    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. ...

    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...
