A workaround is to change your project to HD, make your titles and go back to whatever it was. There may be softening as a resize is being applied. Michael

Dear All:
For a long form doc in progress, I very much need a usable version of AVID 4.0, preferably 4.0.5. Or information on how to find one, or information regarding how to expand the license with AVID for this program! I will pay "good money!"

Thanks very much!

I have a basic Media Composer system consisting of a Mac Pro computer with Snow Leopard, plus the wonderful AVID Media Composer softward and a couple of monitors. I have been inputting HDV and HD video through my cameras. My question now concerns how I go about inputting from analog tapes via a BetaSP deck. I would also like to connect a microphone to the AVID so that I could record test narration. Do I need to purchase additional equipment? If so, what?
