Man alive – yayyy, I am working with the new 2.5GHz MacBookPro and 4GB Ram. This is such a blessing since this machine; along with a 20″ iMac, is a amazing gift we received recently. I cannot say if it is a massive improvement over the 2.33GHz version I was using with the standard 2GB Ram, well not yet. But I have had some serious problems with it.
First with the Sonnet Tempo Express Card that was solved by correctly installing the drivers.
Second with the AirPort switching off and not being able to switch on until a restart is executed, this does not happen much anymore, but I hope the problem does not happen anymore with the release of 10.5.3.
Third with regular crashes:
Last night; while putting together a Title Package for the new series, the MBP kept crashing with the umm grey screen of death – 9 times. I was using Motion 3 with a only one graphic, a filter on the graphic, and two text elements that had simple behaviors. The only thing of suspicion here was the filter. I was trying out the 15 day trial of FxFactory 2.0.3 and the 3D Shatter filter from the CoreMelt Stylize package. hmmmm.
I really hope that the crashing was because of the filter and not the Ram, the ram would be such a nuisance to sort out.
Anyway, I plan to put the MBP through it Paces with FC2, Shake, Logic Studio and ProPresenter3. Awesome.
But I still dream and pray for a 3.2GHz Mac Pro with 16GB Ram, maybe then my Motion projects will run closer to the desired frame rate; hahaha
