ATTENTION! Students who wish to move their editorial projects between Film Program workstations and their home computers should wait to run application updates and ignore when prompted to do so by software developers (aka pushed update alerts). Film Operations thoroughly tests new application version releases for stability and compatibility with other critical applications, utilities, and our overall workflow infrastructure before they are deployed. Often software developers release versions of their application to the public that has undergone limited testing. It is not uncommon for an issue to present itself after it has been installed on the variety of hardware/software combinations, which make up the public user group, that were not present during the isolated testing phase. Developers will deploy a follow up patch update to correct any new bugs after the fact, but sometimes this can take weeks or even months for a proper solution to arrive leaving previously fully functional workstations hamstrung in the meantime.

Students who choose to immediately update applications on their personal computers to version numbers that are not currently supported by Film Operations do so at their own risk as some updates are not easily backwards compatible with previous versions. We are unable to provide compatibility solutions for unsupported versions of application software and operating systems. PLEASE WAIT TO UPDATE!
