  • Renaming tracks in the timeline

    This is probably an easy one, but how can I get rid of the V1, A1, A2, when renaming tracks in the timeline? I only want to see the text that I'm putting in. Please take a look at the example below. Wink

    In some older YouTube videos I don't see this default track naming added to the replaced ones.

    I've searched in the Avid user guide and over here in this forum, but couldn't find the answer. It is right clicking on the preffered track, choose Rename Track, right? Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot in advanced!


  • Focusrite Clarett 2pre doesn‘t work as audio input

    Hi guys,

    is there any way to use my Focusrite Clarett 2pre thunderbolt audio interface for voice recordings with the punch in tool in MC 2018.09?

    My i/o hardware is Blackmagic Ultrastudio 4K which performs nice, but I can‘t use it within punch in tool.

    So I bought a Clarett 2pre and it‘s working like a charm except in media composer. 

    In the audio settings the device doesn‘t show up Sad

    I‘m working with an iMac 5K (2017), macOS Sierra and Blackmagic Ultrastudio 4K. 

    Any ideas?


    thanks, Ben



    when I disconnect or disable the Ultrastudio 4K, the Focusrite audio interface appears as an input option of the punch in tool!

    But as soon as Ultrastudio is active, it‘s gonna be the only option in audio input/punch in settings....


  • Error Initialising bin Indexer Unable to set root path: /

    I have recently updated MC (after uninstalling everything and restarting), then installed new version and every project I open has this error message: Error Initialising bin Indexer Unable to set root path: /

    Is this a drive permissions issue? It doesn't affect my other computer at all (running the same version of the software).

    Running El Capitan and was on 8.5, but tried installing 2018.9 and 8.9 and both have same message, so it seems as though it's the Mac blocking something rather than MC?

    Any suggestions welcome!

  • AMA Linked Prores 444 Export Issues

    I'm doing same as source exports of AMA linked sequences with effects for online.

    I've run about a million tests using MediaInfo as my double-check.

    If I export an AMA linked sequence Same as Source without any effects, it'll render out at Prores 444 and Mediainfo confirms that the output is 444.

    If I export and AMA linked sequence with even 1 effect - a resize let's say - the output is the Prores 444 codec, but MediaInfo reports that it is actually operating in 4:2:2 space.

    My sequence is 3.2k, RGB709. The Media Creation Setting is set to 16bit rendering. The default render codec across the board is Prores444.

    The only setting I can think of that could fix the issues is Format -> Maximum Bit Depth Output, which is greyed out and set to 10... Anyone know how to either enable this setting or export a sequence at truly 444 color space?

    All the other methods I've used have had issues as well. MXF OP1a, Avid Media Encode, Timeline mixdown...

    Same as source is most promising because it gives me the output I expect, but not if any effect is involved.

    Thanks for any advice.

  • Avid Media Composer 8.8.5 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6

    Hello everyone!

    I have Media Composer 8.8.5 and I'll need to upgrade to macOS Sierra.

    The documentation says that this version of Media Composer is compatible with 10.12.5. Unfortunately, the only version I was able to get from Apple was 10.12.6.

    Has anyone used Media Composer 8.8.5 with macOS 10.12.6? Are they compatible, or will I have to install version 10.12.5, instead?

    Thank you in advance.

  • Crashing when importing media


    I try to import MOVs. But the MC 2018.8.0 crashes after a few minutes. I have updated the profile, restarted and all the common rest.

    Anyone out there with the same issue and a solution?


    Thanks for help.


  • Picture playback issues

    I posted this in the wrong forum so this is a report....


    MC 2018.9.0, Mac Pro late 2013, 12 gigs ram, highsierra


    I created picture dailies from resolve and synced them with imported audio and the picture does not play back.


    Playback is fine from the same Master clips w/o syncing to audio. Audio clips play fine alone too. TC for both is 23.98. 


    I'm hoping this is an easy one......

  • 8.9.4 Adding markers/locators bug?



    Anyone else experiencing markers/locators not being added correctly in the source window?


    The playhead just jumps and adds the locator in a diferent place, or not at all. Record monitor seems fine.



  • Position Bar snap on Command

    My fingers are telling me I use to be able to snap to a cut or a IN ou OUT point by pressing the "Command" key... It does not seem to work anymore. 

    All I can see in the settings is the "Position bar snap" under Timeline settings, but this activate the snapping ALL the time.

    Am I going crazy or there is a way to do this ?

  • Avid Script Tool Not Linking



    So I'm having a bit of a weird issue I've never really seen before. I have an editor working from home and he's trying to use some scripts we've created here at the office (we're working on 8.9.4 in the office he's on 2018.7.1 at home) The problem is now when he's using scripts at home when he double clicks on a marker it's taking him about 5-10 seconds behind where the script mark is on the clip. I've tried replicating the problem here at the office using his portable hard drive and the projects he uses at home to no avail. All the scripts are working fine here. So has anyone seen this? Do you know of a fix? Is this a bug in the newer avids? Any help would be apprecaited! Thank you!!!
