Ok. I was so excited to use DR17 because it was an all-in-one solution and its color grading tools are amazing. BUT…
My experience using leaves a lot to be desired.
I am running DR17 on a MAcBook Pro 17 inches with an i9, 64GB of memory, 2 TB SSD, and the fastest and best video card it comes with. I spent over $5000 hoping that this machine would be able to run DR17. It breaks my heart to say that DR17 is a very jittery playback.
I have tried optimizing media, etc. and I use an external SSD connected directly to the computer. The Blackmagic drive test says that the machine is more than adequate. and yet… every time I playback it skips.
Anyone uses the same machine and had a better experience? What do you do? Until I can figure this out is back to good old FCPX that works beautifully on mu machine.
