  • Video isn't showing up in source monitor

    Hi to all of you!


    If i try to load  a clip by drag-drop to a source monitor and that clip accidentally  “touches“ the timeline (assuming I want to put it there),  the source/record monitor goes to "trim view”, and after tha the source monitor no longer displays any video. It plays the source clip’s audio, so it has arrived well. Match frame does not work as well.

    Only sollution, i have found is switch to color grade mode and then back to edit mode. 

    Unfortunately the windows always have to be rearranged, which makes the  editing job very difficult and stressy.

    Here is a quick demo

    Is that a bug or new feature?. Can be turn on/off somewhere? Or any sollution?

    update: I had to switch back to MC 2018.12.7. (No any editors wants to spend their nights with such unnecessary work) In  2018.12.7 the clips can be moved smoothly without the problem described above. So i assume this is a bug, or a  serious mistake that the developers urgently need to fix. I don't understand how avid can give it out of their hands. Shame.  Do the developers read this forum? Or do i have to report it "officially?"

    But if it's a user error, please let me know.


  • MC 2019.9 audio mixer quirk

    New install 2019.9: I discovered that if my curser moves over the faders of the mixer (without any clicking) Composer toggles between source and record. This is new behaviour which I find very annoying and hard to believe that it's intentional.

  • Your Titler Pro for Avid License is Expiring

    I got an email from Avid about Your Titler Pro for Avid License is Expiring. On November 14th, 2019, existing Titler Pro for Avid licenses will stop working and installers will be removed from My Avid accounts.


    I think now is the time for Avi's new titler tool Titler+ to take over and be really well intergrated into the Media Composer software. Marquee was a great titler and if this can be modernised and ported into Avid Media Composer 2019x with resolution indepdence that would be great. As The Titler+ in Avid is the new default titler I don't see this happening with Marquee. So The next step I think and everyone esle may agree or disagree would be to have an easy to use robust, powerful titler for Titler+ right directly in Avid.



  • Timecode Sync one Video File with aux timecode to multiple audio files

    I just bought a Mixpre 10 II and I am trying to Sync it to my Sony a7 III via two ultrasync one units. So i am converting audio timecode of the video file to AUX Timecode and sync it to the timecode of the mixpre 10 II (Copying timecode to aux timecode). 


    The Mixpre 10 II has a file size limit of 4GB because of the SD card recording. So it always splits audio after some time and creates a new file. in 32bit with 10 tracks 48khz its about 37 minutes. So its very likely to have a video file that has to be synced to multiple audio files, but that doesnt seem to work. Avid Media Composer only sync to the first audio file and ignores the next files. Is there any workaround for that? I tried an auto sequence as well, but it cannot arrange files via AUX TC and I am not able to copy AUX Timecode to the Start Timecode field..

  • 2019.9 is buggy w AMA

    Working on a TV show multi cam w some AMA and some encoded.

    For the first time my MC is been crushing for a week when sharing sequences with oter editors working on previous versions

    w multicam groups that contain long recordings of multi channel sound.

    It crushes. I figured out ot was the audio doing it. I asked for a no audio version of the sequence

    relink the audio ( avoiding AMA) and it worked.

    still I find it buggy.

  • New install MC 2019.9 won't activate

    Activation issue with 2019.9: I deactivated and uninstalled 2019.7. Installed 2019.9 with no issues. Now when I try to launch, Avidlink pops up the activation choice window, but once selected, nothing happens, except activation choice window pops up again. The loop of frustration.... I'm on a Mac OS 10.14.2. Reboots make no difference. This is time critical as I'm starting a new project with a very tight deadline. Marianna...please help if you can.

  • MC 2019.7 Bug - deleting/"trashing" bin



    I'm having a bit of trouble deleting/"trashing" bins and folders within Media Composer 2019.7. When I hit delete, instead of creating a trash folder and removing the selected bin, nothing happens.


    I did not have this problem on the previous version of Media Composer.


    Has anyone else had this problem?

  • Monitoring in 5.1 w DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K

    Hello folks:

    Wondering if anyone can share details of the rig they use to monitor in 5.1 audio?  I'm using the DeckLink Mini Monitor 4K, SDI out, converted to HDMI with a BlackMagic SDI to HDMI convertor.  I've got an ARCAM 5.1 amp and speakers ready to go.

    Any tips on audio hardware to take discreet channels from the DeckLink and turn them into an AC3 optical feed that I can send to the Arcam amp?

    Any advice welcome.  Thanks in advance.

    Best, JIM.
