Re: DAS or NAS? by Neil Sadwelkar 1 year ago Between Promise and LaCie, my choice would be neither. I'd go with G-technology. But they don't have a 6-bay. Its 4-bay or 8-bay. On Mac Mini, I have one. A stock 3 GHz 6-core i5 to which I added RAM

Resolve 16 vs FCPX by Oliver Peters 1 year ago So how do you folks think Resolve 16 stacks up against FCPX Anyone jumping ship - Oliver Oliver Peters - oliverpeters.com
Re: Resolve 16 vs FCPX by Neil Sadwelkar 1 year ago One of the issues with the popularity (or not) of Resolve (free) is that, since its not a sold software, and needs registration before download, only Blackmagic knows how many (or how few) times it ha
