View Full Version : 3DACT w/ Express Pro 5.7.2--NO GOOD

Is anyone else having dongle problems with these two? It seems I have to choose between 3D ACT and my Mac-based Avid--which, considering editing is my profession, the 3d ACT is about to be uninstalled. Been going round and round with NT Support with no solutions....anyone?

How are the dongles connected? Are they in the same hub?

Is it the dongles themselves, or the drivers? In other words, with both programs installed, do you have difficulty without the 3DACT dongle physically connected?

And what form does the incompatability take?

Not sure on this one.
You are saying, if you install 3DACT or put the dongle in, Avid stops working?

I will have tech look into this.

Maybe we could swap for a more current dongle?

are the both sentinel dongles? I use Lightwave and Mirage, both on USB dongles, and used LW/Shave/Aura all on sentinel Parallel dongles.

My 3DA is the version for those of us with LW already, so I may not be the BEST source of help, but I haven't ran into dongle conflicts before.
