    By Julian Firminger - I have a client who's insisting on it for reasons I cant figure out. ?It's just a nicely packaged NAS from my cursory look at it. ?

    Has anyone got any experience / data comparing it to Isilon or BA or that ilk? ?

    I am looking to silently uninstall CS 5.5 as part of our migration to CS6 and beyond. We plan on using the AMMEE tool to package and then deploy silently to our users and have a good handle on that portion of the process.


    The big challenge seems to be uninstalling previous versions of silently. We are too large of an organization to go from desk to desk to manually perform the

    uninstall. I have found plenty of documentation for removing CS3/CS4 but it starts to get grey for CS5/5.5.


    I have been trying something along the lines of this which I found on the interwebs:


    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\DWA\Setup.exe" -mode=Silent -deploymentFile="path to uninstall file"


    As well as something along the lines of:


    msiexec.exe /x {product code} /quiet


    The goal is to uninstall the CS suite(s) or standalone products installed, run the Adobe cleaner script to remove an lingering bits of Adobe and then install CS6, so we want package this up as script that can be run remotely and do these upgrade after hours and without interrupting the daily workflow.

    By Chip Bobbert - I think it's time to retire our Final Cut Server and seek an alternative. What's everyone else using? We need to support about 50 users (at most 10 concurrent). We also need a product whose pricing is "educational institution friendly", we just need something to give our students exposure. Needs to support audio, photo, and video. It doesn't need to import or migrate the existing FCS data, we can start from scratch. It also needs to be easy enough to manage that we don't need a dedicated person to do it.

    By Mat X - To anyone in London on June 5th there's a cool event I wish I could go to all about content acquisition, MAMs and archiving.

    I think they're talking about Apple FCP X, Archiware Backup and Archive, and some other fun asset management stuff.

    Andr? Aulich will be there. Met him at NAB. Lotsa smart peeps all in one place. 

    Almost makes me want to go back to NAB. LOL.

    I'm tired of cobbling together little sfx libraries, all with their own labeling, metadata (or lack thereof), etc... would prefer to just sign up for a big-ass library that I can cache locally & update periodically (or even just log in, search & preview online, then download what i want)

    Anyone doing that?

    Apparently Syntheyes has recently added Linux and floating license support:

    Of course uses its own license server mechanism, but still a lot better than having to deal with node locked licenses (even if considerably more expensive than the node locked).

  • 05/31/13--09:20: netapp going software?
  • By Greg Whynott -

    I hear a rumor that NetApp is going to focus on Software as Storage solution.  meaning you may be able to install OnTap (or some variant of it) on your own hardware.  

    kinda seen that coming. who's next?  8)

  • 05/31/13--13:20: Chown. Francis Chown.
  • By David Laur - Some Friday lunchtime Pacific Northwest trivia, for your consideration: --- With his life savings of $5,000 of gold inside his money belt, Francis R Chown left Kingston, Ontario Canada. After wandering the west he decided on the growing city of Portland (17,000 people in 1879). Chown's original inventory of farm implements, logging supplies, construction materials and tools came by Clipper sailing ships from the hardware and plumbing wholesalers in San Francisco. --- I don't see a place to order t-shirts.

  • 05/31/13--15:55: QNAP sync over internet
  • By Wayne Chang - speaking of QNAP... i've got two QNAPs for a project that i'd like to keep synchronized. They are in different physical locations: one west coast, one east coast. i was looking at rsync and qnap rtrr, but the QNAP implementations seem mainly intended for local networks, not long-distance. And more importantly, i won't have regular access to the QNAPs, so another goal is to have the sync solution be relatively artist-proof. i was thinking of keeping the sync on the computers, and using something like Cubby or BitTorrent Sync, but i'd love to be able to run it on the QNAPs natively. rsync/rtrr over vpn is an option, but very difficult politically. does anyone have suggestions? I bet i'm missing something really simple. thanks in advance! To unsubscribe from the list send a blank e-mail to

  • 06/03/13--13:20: 4k uptake
  • By Todd Smith -

    Hey guys,

    I'm interested in a general polling of the SSA commons to see how many of us have 4k work, or are simply preparing 4k pipeline for the inevitable.

    I haven't seen anything on my end and my general conversations aren't leading me towards 4k uptake here anytime soon.  I'm wondering where we are going to see this happen?  Are theatres going to put in 4k systems simply because?  Are studios going to pay for VFX houses to realize 4k pipelines?  Perhaps some of you are preparing 4k pipelines simply to be able to advertise to studios that you can.

    I'm interested to see where it's headed.  Also do you think it's even worthy of an investment?

    Looks like there's a new web site for creating and managing HDS support cases. I'll reserve judgment for now since it is early days, but something I ran into: running Chrome on Mac, I was mysteriously unable to enter anything in the Serial Number field. Tried it on Firefox, and got a "popup warning": after enabling that, got a popup that allowed me to select from a list of serial numbers attached to our site, but in Chrome it just seemed to fail silently.

    I'm guessing I'm not the only one around here who uses a Mac as primary admin platform, so hopefully that saves someone else a bit of head scratching.

    By Bill Heiden - For those of you in NYC that may have a spare few hours in the next few week, I would encourage you to visit the installation that we have set up at Pier 57. The installation was designed by Garson Yu the founder of yU+Co. The installation consists of eight Christie projectors being driven four Nvidia K5000s.

  • 06/03/13--23:25: Frankie
  • By Robert Moggach - Got a sales email from the Cinesync crew with their new offering Frankie...

    Either they got my name from the interdubs site or Andreas passed on the info which I doubt.
    Anyone using it? 

    Hi Rob,

    I've been meeting this past few weeks with various people in the commercial production world about a new collaborative media review tool (called Frankie) that we've recently introduced.  Given the nature of your business, I thought you and your team might be interested in having a look at Frankie, too.  It can be a great complement to Interdubs, which I believe you've been using for some time.

    Running in a browser, Frankie enables you to review and discuss video media between multiple locations, with play controls, drawing tools and notes perfectly synchronised between all participants.  It's built upon the same technology as our Academy Award winning cineSync software, but tailored for short-form content production workflows.  It requires no software installation and no plugins, and it takes care of the media hosting and transport.  It's really easy to learn and fun to use.

    Frankie makes it simpler and more effective when working with clients in other countries or cities ? or even just elsewhere in Toronto.  WIPs can be reviewed and discussed quickly, using drawing tools to illustrate exactly what you mean, eliminating ambiguity.  And it's ideal for discussing storyboards and sketching out ideas to make sure that everyone is on the same page right from the start.

    How does that sound?  Would you have some time in the next week or two for a phone call to discuss this, and run through a really quick demo?  I'm based in Australia, so we can connect via phone or Skype one evening your time (early morning over here).

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

    Kind regards,
