New 2015 iMac will not run Yosemite
by Bob Pierce 4 years ago
Maybe I should have known better, but I have to admit I'm shocked. My new iMac 5k is El Crapitan OS only. No Yosemite allowed, which of course means no Adobe pro apps either. Seriously. It won't run t

The new iMacs (I have one) use Skylake chips, new chipsets, and updated AMD graphics cards. These drivers aren't present in pre-El Capitain Code. However, the latest El Cap update does fix the most eg

Background after full motion into Query
by Douglas Morse 4 years ago
Hi. I want a full motion intro (rolling dice) to be replaced by a still frame after the motion stops. Can't figure out how to do it. Help please.
Re: Background after full motion into Query
by Douglas Morse 4 years ago
I found a simple way to do it. I duplicated the menu, set the animated menu to first play, then I have it switch over to the secondary menu that has the still image on it. The buttons remain the same

I think panic and paranoia are the incorrect terms. Pissed off, disillusioned, and frustrated are correct. I don't want to spend $500 for an OMF plug in just so I can export audio to my Pro Tools guy.
