The TOC is better organized and it is apparent that there will be original writing here. However, the first chapter was a pretty big disappointment. I'm hopeful, from browsing the TOC, that this fact won't determine how the rest of the Tue, 24 Aug 2010 10:41:19 GMT XSAN & Final Cut Server Update https://blogs.creativecow.net/blog/3186/xsan-final-cut-server-update https://blogs.creativecow.net/blog/3186/xsan-final-cut-server-update I can't believe this much time has passed since my last blog entry here. But no one has bugged me about it for a while either, so the old adage rings true - out of sight, out of mind. That said, production has slowed up a bit so I'm back to working on our Final Cut Server implementation.

And I've learned a bit about the differences between going by the book and what works in the real world. Our IT team has seen it all and they are all over this project now. We're at the start of sandboxing new topologies for XSAN 2.

Apparently the person put in charge of our XSAN implementation has had no training and now we're faced with some pretty major roadblocks. I had previously purchased a book on XSAN and he's studying it now.

I'll be looking into these in even finer detail this evening.

We have so many variables that I find myself referring back to my original workflow diagram, circa 1999. The basic high-level concepts of post-production are virtually the same anywhere you go. The devil, of course, is in the details. That's where thi Mon, 25 Jan 2010 09:14:39 GMT
