Just wondering how everyone approaches updating their OS and compatibility with WL8 and C7? The system requirements page isn’t particularly specific on this and I’m loath to mess with a very stable system with updates that won’t help my issue or are unnecessary.
My DAW is not internet connected in any way, (even turned off all the networking peripherals in BIOS) I have no anti-virus or firewall and only my Audio apps installed. This is following the old-school ‘Every CPU cycle for audio’ theory.
This approach may be outdated but so is my PC (at least I’m consistent).
Recently one of the H264 Video files I received for post editing refused to behave in C7, with the video track reporting a ‘frame-rate miss-match’ and the video playing at a ridiculous stuttering 17.2fps and not syncing up with the OMF imported audio. Every other program plays it back fine (quicktime, VLC, WMP etc) even though win properties tab reports the same bizarre frame-rate.
Searching around has led me to all sorts of crazy Video editing sites and no real solution. Lots of ads selling FPS changing software though… (cough).
The one relevant post I’ve found around here talks about updating Video drivers and Quicktime and here, finally, I’ll get to the point, the new video drivers want .net framework.
I have worked out how to D/L and install the updates but should I update just the .net framework or go the whole hog of service packs or something in between.
Any input would be greatly appreciated and thanks for getting through my rambling word stumbles.
