Avid Artist Color problems

09 September 2015 - 12:51 AM

Anyone here use an Avid/Euphonix MC color


Mine stopped connecting to resolve. Was troubleshooting and tried to install latest version of the EU control software, but now that software won't launch. Now I'm downgrading version by version 3.3 to 3.2 etc. and still no luck.


Getting weird windows cant find HUI.exe error.


I really don't get it everything was working fine for ages and now nothing I do seems to work.



Qnap help!

23 July 2015 - 01:25 AM

Got back to the office and my Qnap wasn't showing up on network, when I tried to login in to web interface said it saw there was qnap data on my disk did I want to restore factory defaults or initialize.


Tried to restore factory defaults, no luck. Took out disks and re-initialized with a blank disk.


Now I can login and work with Qnap so...


I put back in all my disks (raid 10) but still no luck, put back in the newly formatted disks and the 7 remianing other disks of raid ten figuring I could rebuild the raid volume on the formatted disk but still can't figure out how to make qnap do this.


I feel like with a raid 10 there should be some way to make the qnap see the data...


Any ideas would be hugely appreciated.

Macbook pro 13 in retina

05 March 2015 - 06:45 PM

I want to get a small really portable laptop for doing my more admin type of work on the go, but I still want to be able to do some design on it (photoshop, illustrator etc.) when in transit.


Right now I have an older 15 inch MBP was wondering if a 13 inch retina is workable for design or if it's just too small to do anything useful on without a second monitor?



Payment formulas and collecting $

27 November 2014 - 03:14 PM

Curious if most of you are doing the "industry standard" 50% upfront, 50% billed on completion 30 days net.


I'm finding that because of change orders it usually ends up being more like a 40/60 split (hard to collect deposits on change orders in the heat of deadlines), and inevitably once everything is delivered our leverage is gone so 30 days becomes, 60 days becomes 90 days... and it causes stress and cash flow headaches.


Was thinking of moving to 50% upfront and final payment due after final approval prior to delivery, or else maybe 50%, 25% before delivery with only the last 25% being net 30.


Also curious if any of you are using Zen Cash or collection agencies etc. to get payments.


Curious to hear your thoughts basically just trying to find ways to spend less time chasing after payments to focus more time on actually getting and doing the work.
