  • Working from home and Interplay

    I'm an editor working on an archive-based documentary series (5 Media Composer cutting rooms running 2018.10.0) using the Interplay system. This is my first time using Interplay, so I'm not very au fait with its capabilites/limitations.

    Given the current escalating situation with the coronavirus, I think we should be planning for working from home.

    What are our options?

    Would the simplest - albeit low-tech - solution be to just copy all Avid media files and projects to external hard drives and then just plug in at home? (I'm guessing there's in excess of 10TB of media.)

    Can we just run plain vanilla Media Composer at home and access the media? I seem to remember there are restrictions with Interplay licenses. But if we have moved all the media onto external drives, does that restriction apply?

    Any suggestions most welcome.

  • MC-EM searching

    We have just upgraded to the newest version of MC-EM and I just tried to do a search inside Media Composer. I got some results of things I have created since the upgrade. Does EM not search all older projects? Is there something i need to do to make it search my entire "projects" folder?


  • ALLERT!!! Chrome Version 80.0.3987.87 breaks mediacentral UX.

    The title says it all. All of our customers that have PC's that are connected to the internet loose the ability to play video in mediacentral since yesterday.

    Avid, Any comments?

    Workaround for now is installing a chromium browser variant. Or the Mediacentral UX application.

    Just learned that the new Edge browser which uses chromium also works.

  • MCEM - No Files / Folders / Workspaces


    I have installed Editorial Management on a server and am connecting to it with a client computer. Both can connect to the Nexis and mount workspaces. The client computer can connect to mediacentral both within Avid and in a chrome web browser, but in both instances all I see in the directory listing on the left hand side is the name of my Nexis. None of my workspaces show up and no files or folders. I'm out of ideas on how to make files show up, it feels like the Nexis needs to be indexed and then the files and folders will show up? If someone can help please.

    Running MCEM 19.5 on Windows Server 2016, and Media Composer 2018.12.5 with Nexis Client Manager 18.11



  • Send to playback to Airspeed freezing (solved)

    Hi Interplay/Mediacentral users,

    After a few hours of searching to resolve a send to playback issue at one of our customers I thought it was wise to share this one here.

    If you use XDCAM HD and import pictures/graphics into Mediacomposer and find that the send to playback freezes during the process (at the point in the timeline where pictures/graphics are located), go to your mediacreation settings, open the tab Mixdown & Transcode and select Re-encode for XDCAM bitstream compliance (slower).

    For reasons unknown to mankind this compliance is now needed for the transfer manager on the airspeed to be able to transfer the TMF file to itself.

    Don't ask me why, Ask Avid... oh wait.. Avid.. why?


  • Dynamic relink disaster

    We *always* turn dynamic relink off.

    Occasionally we have to turn it on to force a relink when media drops offline (eg XTAccess rebooted during transfer - media transferred but masterclip only linked to video).

    Always change settings to ‘keep existing’ and ‘highest quality’

    Usually that is fine.

    Yesterday I had to use it in this manner, turned on for just a few seconds, then off again.

    However I later opened a sequence that had one unrelated master clip that had linked to completely different source media.

    This master clip was a copy (named Clip_Stereo & modified so that the audio tracks were stereo) the original master clip (Clip_mono) had retained the link to the correct source media. Both these clips have the same tape/start/end). The incorrectly linked media has a different tape & end (they have same start of 10;00;00;00)

    The only answer I’m looking for here is how does dynamic relink link? Because it can’t be tape/start alone.


  • Interplay check-in question from an Editor

    At some places I work, when I close a bin I get a prompt asking if I want to check the bin into Interplay. At other facilities, when I close a bin it automatically gets checked-in (which I don't like). Is that a user setting somewhere?

  • Virtualizing Media Central 2019.6 and Phonetic Index (aka Search Grid)

    I am not seeing a best practices or anything in the install docs other than an old guide for version 2.5 or later.

    Has anyone virtualized Media Central 2019.6? With VMWare?

    I remember from class that it is a resource hog but we are on a push to virtualize everything within the next year, so Media Central and Phonetic Index are the only two I see that are not listed in the docs…

    Anyone done it with success?

    Avid? Supported or not supported?



  • Finally, Mediacentral UX 2.10.6 is released. but say what?

    From the 2.10.6 readme.

    MediaCentral Production Management.

    If integrating with MediaCentral Production Management v2018.6 or later, you must use Interplay Access v3.8 - v2017.2 to configure the MediaCentral Platform Services Settings in the Interplay Administrator. Avid Interplay Administrator v2018.6 cannot be used with MediaCentral 2.10.x.

    Sorry but here I go again. Have you lost your mind Avid? Who thought that this is was ok?
