Yes, that is working fine for me so far. But again, it would be nice to hear from the Media 100 folks...

There's no issue that I've heard of with Lion (I'm also using 10.7.3). I don't think XDCAM Transfer is needed at all -- I've certainly never used it. Sounds to me like the jittery video is related mor

It's true, sad to say, that under the previous ownership Media 100 nearly died. But I must say that since Boris Yamnitsky bought the company, tremendous improvements have been made. Media 100 is a leg
