    WONDERFUL. The MBP 2 are great and I think I lot of folks will want to run EDIUS on a Mac.

Id use paraless if I only need something like office for windows.
    Obviously you didn't read what Parallels does before installing. :)

    I only need to boot Bootcamp for FireWire capture into Avid Liquid. From that point through making HD DVDs I can use any PC application -- except EDIUS -- as an application while using OS X. The PC applications are in my OS X dock and run like any other OS X application.

    If there was a way to force EDIUS to not use DirectDraw Overlays and simply write video to the display -- it would join the other PC applications in running on a Mac.

    I don't think we're all talking about using an Intensity card for WYSIWYG, and since this affects windows just as much as mac, I will start a new thread

    Yeah, Ashley Guy tested it and it worked. Intensity does not show up in Edius, but you can use the files in Edius. It doesn't block Edius' bootup.

    Last I was aware, Decklink was a problem, but Intensity was OK?

    Wouldn't the NXExpress work in a Mac Pro considering that they're just plain 2 PCIe cards? I know someone said that the [email protected] RTX2 works with it.

    The MacPro has 3 PCIe slots (4 if you count the graphics port). I guess no one has tried this yet.

    Edius flies on my 2.66G MacPro using Bootcamp. It's a pity that real time HD monitoring is not available, GV ought to consider making NX and Expansion cards for the MacPro as I'm sure that many FCP editors could be enticed to the speed and simplicity of edius.

    So is there any hard cards on/for the MacPro that will allow Edius to have WYSIWYG realtime playout?

    eg the Declink Series SD/HD cards HDMI Intensity, whether using parallel or bootcamp?

    The problems isn't Parallels as all my other PC software works fine. As I posted, Avid Liquid edits 1080i HDV perfectly under Parallels.

    It's only EDIUS that has a problem. The question is, what is EDIUS doing when tried to display windows? Is it trying to use DirectX? Is it trying to use overlays? Can you tell it what to use?

    By the way, EDIUS does run fine when I boot in Bootcamp. I run both Parallels and Bootcamp, but obviously it's much nicer not to reboot.

    Yeah but I use all the Adobe apps, so I don't want to switch from OSX to XP everytime...and I don't want to be forced to OSX only. Sure I'll have my other PC (XP Pro SP2 with a Storm2) but my main workstation will be mainly for graphic stuff, and I hate dual boot systems..

    Wow apple changed their site already!If you look there are 3 paragraphs there were 4 eariler today saying something about a super fast restart that sounded more like a log in log off thing. I dont know if they are commited enough to Parallels not to step on their toes I dont know. Dave for what your doin gI HIGHLY recomend Boot camp its just like having a dual boot system.

Being able to login log out is cool but if you check Apples site after the big tadoo today it looks like Boot Camp will act simularly in October. BTW I also found guys on the Mac forums to be VERY rude and condencending. Not to start a Win VS Mac but I am still a little pissed about the way I was treated there.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    As far as rude people, they're all over...so ignore them.

    Check it out. Bootcamp is included. What's new? I don't know.

    I am REALLY trying to figure out if the NX/Edius combo works on a Mac Pro...have you tried it yet, Randy?
