    Of course there was a release schedule. Nonetheless, the VHS release date of Ghostbusters -- a movie which opened in theaters on June 8, 1984 -- was October 31, 1985. At least in North America.

    I remember the more popular it was, the longer it would be before they showed it on TV. It was a really big deal when Star Wars made its network debut. They had a pre-show with the stars.

    Not sure that's so. I had Ghostbusters on VHS in 1985 and Back to the Future in 1986. I didn't really pay close attention to everything, but I do remember Fatal Attraction being available in 1988.

    That's what keeps me away from a theater more than anything. Nothing ruins a movie for me like the audience. If I can find a showing that's nearly empty, that's what I'll do.

    GPU helps render effects. CPU still does most of the heavy lifting.

    That's because we deleted the political stuff, which was getting into name-calling (which political stuff always does).

    There have already been a lot of political posts deleted.

    Additionally, the CX350 records in 10-bit 4:2:2, whereas you need an external recorder to do so with a DVX200, which only records to its cards in 8-bit 4:2:0. The CX350 also records in HEVC (H.265)....

    You read that if you add more RAM of the same model number as what you have, it'll cause problems?

    That just isn't so.

    Yeah, you shouldn't be seeing this. I'd uninstall, restart, then reinstall.

    But . . . what is your graphics card, and what version of driver?

    I dislike graphic violence very much, especially when it's gratuitous, as it often is with Tarantino.

    I'm also disgusted by violence against women because they're women.

    Well, I suppose it's Palpatine's story in the same way most James Bond films are the villains' stories. Which is something I've argued from time to time, sometimes seriously, sometimes not.

    I can't really assess it yet. I enjoyed the copious apologies for the last movie too much to take it on its own merits.

    When I do, I'm sure the things you point out here will probably weigh in...

    While it is not my favorite NLE, learning to edit the AVID way will make you a more efficient editor in whatever other NLE you choose.

    I dunno. I've wondered if it's along the same lines as music theory. Some chords and chord progressions just trigger things in the brain. Some notes resonate well together; some don't. Some music...
