    Re: Avid promotes competitors?

    editdudes:

     

     

    Since it's still there, unaltered, does this mean that Avid officially recommends NOT using DS for stereoscopic finishing?

     

     

     

    Sure looks that way. Perhaps I should stop this stereoscopic job I'm working on and use one of the recommended competitors tools instead?

    Marianna:

    I have pinged the marketing person who wrote the doc for calrifiation and or comment.

    Stand by...... its Friday after 5 ET so I might not get an answer until Monday.

    checks watch again

    It's now mid day Tuesday where you are....

    Just say'n..... it ain't Monday anymore....

    d/

     

    the key phrase it "I might not get an answer until monday."

    While i most certainly agree that this is an important question, i do not agree with the sarcasm laced in this response.  (tongue in cheek as it may be) Mariana is an extreemly hard working individual that does more for any single customer than I have ever witnessed from any individual from other company.  I'm sure she has a lot on her plate, and she will get an answer for you.

    The the least she deserves is your patience.

    Knowing Dermot as well as I do, this was definitely not directed at Marianna. She is a tireless promoter of all systems Avid.

    Re: Avid promotes competitors?

    The Symp & DS communities are faceing much the same issues, maybe we have more in common these days than ever before?

    Nutt'n wrong atall

    PS.. to the funky dragon (who ever you are)... any sarcasm you read into my ilttle missive is certianly not aimed at the delightful Ms MM,  but do feel free to transfer any angst you feel straight over to  to the marketing folks who it apears are not answering Ms MM... Other wise she would have posted something by now eh?

    Btw.. it's now Wednesday morning on the west coast, mid day on the east coast.... and as crazy as it sounds, that white paper is still up on the Avid site, and not corrected, modified, changed, anything...

    sad....

    &

    bad...

    veering a bit OT, but...

    I would find that really funny, but I just spent several hours this afternoon at my PUBLIC LIBRARY out here in the country downloading my 10.6.3 update and (cough cough) that new product that runs on a Mac....

    HughesNet sucks.  It generally sucks in good times, but I got hit with the "Fair Access Policy" penalty because they only allow you 375 meg of download each 24 hours.  If you exceed that, then they cut you back to below dial up speed for 24 hours.  Hence, the library trip today.  Me and the kids during story reading time.  Did I mention that HughesNet sucks?  Yes, I believe I did.  I will never edit in the cloud out here, because HughesNet does not allow it.  Thank god land-based wireless is making its way to me.  And no, the Verizon network is not here...standing outside my driveway, but not at the office...

    Ah, the price of country living sometimes....  Confused

    Re: Avid promotes competitors?

    But back to the original point of this thread.  Does anyone know the Product Manager is for DS?  I mean we had Bruno and then Bill Admans, but who is the new person?  What is his/her background, and why the hell have we not seen or heard from her/him?  It sure would be nice to hear directly from the product person rather than having Marianna do the end run for info.  Let's hear directly from the DS PM and then we get the real scoop.  Anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?

    My understanding is that neither of those folks were actual Product Managers, but rather 'DS Evangelists'.  Last I heard (a year or 2 ago) I think Angus MacKay was the Marketing Manager, but I think the DS PM is now based in Tewks.  There seem to be so many people involved in various fiefdoms that it is difficult to hone in on 'the one'.  Whoever it is, they are apparently on vacation.  How else would one explain the silence?

    Re: Avid promotes competitors?

    Perhaps DS doesn't HAVE a PM?  Do Avid even remember that it's one of their products?  If they do, how come Marianna is the only one from Avid who ever mentions it?

    Do they perhaps think that ignoring it will make it go away?

    Do they really think that those folk who've spent tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars on a product will allow Avid to just ignore them?

    Every day this silence goes on I get more angry.

    He or she should really pony-up and introduce his/herself and tell us what is really going on.  I have never seen anything quite like this.
