I got this email from iZotope (as per
“Since OS X 10.13 (High Sierra) is a brand new operating system, iZotope software is currently being tested for compatibility with this OS. Although testing is ongoing, so far we have received no reports of issues from users or from our own Quality Assurance team.”
Be very careful NOT to encrypt a drive while running High Sierra.
According to CCC Bombich Software Blog when you encrypt a volume under HS Disk Utility is also converting that volume to APFS. This cannot be undone without erasing the drive and losing data. The example they tested was a RAID volume and that to me is even more troubling.
Admittedly I'm just starting on a new project after installing High Sierra but I'm seeing speed improvements. Mulitcam'd a couple of presentations I shot on different cams/audio sources and the sync was near instantaneous which is DEFINITELY an improvement.
Flashing, mine is sort of a purple color, on export...I had no idea what is causing it..MBP 2014, Iris graphics the info box says, I have no idea!!
8GB RAM, 2x 4GB, and it reports ok ok, so RAM must be fine...
I wish I knew what cause the flashes to print to the export video, so damn annoying to spend hours editing, export and the export is ruined, suffice to say, the client walked away...I don't blame him, never was able to figure out the root, RAM, graphics, hard drive, software...intermittent fault...
Late 2013 rMBP 15" with 16 GB RAM, runs great, slightly improved performance, but nothing to write home about. Very stable, not much different to notice.
Remember, we're using a version NOT optimized for High Sierra yet. We'll probably see the next big FCPX upgrade in three weeks (Creative Summit). Then you'll see more stability and performance, IMHO. No one knows for sure, though. Only 3 weeks away.
Also, Coremelt has an update for Chromatic coming, which again I'll speculate that they'll show at FCPX Creative Summit with new features and a major performance bump (especially for the late 2013 Mac Pro).
