Thanks for the link Bob.

I didn't realize that mix and match will also allow 50i and 60i in the same timeline. Then you can modify the timeline to be either or. You duplicate the sequence
and modify you can have one PAL and one NTSC timeline.

I plan on downloading the trial tonight, take my HM 100 and shoot 50 and 60i, 25p, 24p, 30p, and 60p and see what happens.

I now see why this is a version 4.0.

AVID prides themselves on stability. That doesn't jive well with supporting "any and all" processors and motherboards.

Or perhaps I'm just old and crusty.

AMD and GeForce are not really the same as "any and all." I've never heard of Avid not running b/c of an AMD processor. But I've also never read of AMD being supported. And GeForce cards are used in qualified MacBook Pros, so why not qualify those same cards for PC's?

I believe that Mac hardware and OS support the Geforce card in a different way than the PC.

There were issues of AMD processors creating conflicts with Avid, but it was a while ago. In fact I moved away from AMD because of those conflicts.

Maybe someone with more computer hardware technical knowledge has more insight.
