  • Avid crash on clicking Export File
    Hi everybody, I'm having a really frustrating problem lately with Avid on export. Can't figure a timing when this starts to happen, but at some point all my projects start to crash when i get to "Export File". I reinstalled my system clean with Big Sur 11.4 and Avid 2021.6. But the problem started to appear again in the new projects. After a bit of time, i cant export anything. Going into another project and opening export from it sometimes helps until it doesnt and the other project is crashign as well. My workflow mostly starts from prores422 proxy linked file on set, then recomposed using 1080p/25 MXF transcodes from Davinci of Arri Alexa/Sony Venice or RED, sometimes a few linked files. I'm doing mostly commercials of 1min and 30seconds timelines. Using Macbook Pro 15 2018, project files are located in local drive /Documents folder synced to iCloud drive. All the media is on the Samsung T7 2TB drive. Big Sur 11.4 and Avid 2021.6.   Anyone had this weird bug? Some advice would be really helpful!
  • Can I open another Avid project during Background Transcoding

    If I'm start Background Transcoding in one Avid project, can I close that project and open another Avid project?

    I'm running MC 2018.12.13 on a Mac Pro Late 2013, OS 10.14.6.

    If I was running MC 2021, could I open another Avid project while background transcoding?

  • Mac v PC buying in next month

    Hi All

    A well worn topic I am sure. Simply can the M1 Macs run Avid Media composer now ? I believe the answer is no. May have to buy a PC for the first time. Ascribing no blame here just a fact. My iMac is growng old. Loved it but time to move on.

  • Avid 2021.6 Shared project between Mojave/Big Sur


    Anyone knows if is there any problem if my assistant and me work on a shared project with Avid Media Composer 2021.6 but on different MacOS versions. Due software and hardware compatibility my assistant needs keep his iMac on Mojave and I would rather keep mine on Big Sur? I was looking for information with no really conclusive results.

    Thank you in advance!

  • For the life of me I can't get Avid not to crash

    I want to get the trial up and running before committing to a sub or buying outright but for the life of me I can't get this program not to crash on boot up.  The fact that Avid won't even help you unless you have an account and then has paid tier support after that is insane.  It's been a nightmare trying to sort this out through their knowledge base, bot, or phone line.  Now that my rant for the tech team that will never care is out of the way...

    First, I had Avid link stuck on syncing for my ultimate trial.  I closed it out in the activity monitor, cleared my cache, and then relogged in.  Now for Media Composer Ultimate it just says UNAVAILABLE in red even though my trial goes through a couple weeks in October.  So I belive it's just trying to load up Media Composer First, which from what I can tell is the full program installed, they just block priveleges to XYZ as the install files are the same size.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times.  But during the load screen it crashes on me every time and says it has "quit unexpectedly".  I logged into my account on my partner's Mac and it loaded up Media Composer First just fine.  Is there any way to figure out what the hang up is on my own without subscribing first since Avid tech support is non-existent (and I'd be lowest tier support at best and who knows how much help that is)?

  • SYS_ERROR, OSErr:-43


    I'm getting these random error pop-ups since yesterday: SYS_ERROR, OSErr:-43.

    I'm running OSX Catalina 10.15.7 and Avid MC 2021.5.0.55349.0.

    Nothing has changed in months - same external hard disk, same hardware, cutting in the same project.

    What's wrong?

  • EDL with 24hrs TimeCode

    Hi everyone,

    I have a problem. The camera recorded some clips with timecode starting with 23:53:59:29 to 24:10:20:10 for example. But when I create the EDL the 24 hrs are changed to 00 hrs.

    I know I can change the EDL in text edit in order to change the 24 hour to 00 but, is there a way to export the EDL directly with this modification instead of doing it manual?

    Thanks you in advanced



  • Get rid of Audio on Subclips

    Hey dear friends,


    this issue really bugs me:
    I am working for an editor who first said she wanted all audio on the subclip, but noch after she saw the first 3 shootingdays she wants only the mixdown.

    She already edited with these subclips and now I have a huge amount of work ahead, which I would like to avoid.

    Since the Unlink-modify-relink method doesn't work for subclips I really don't want to create new subclips with only 2 audio tracks and re edit everything she did.

    Is there another way? She still wants to double match frame to get to the original audio master clip.

    Thank you very much, your help is very much appreciated. 

  • MDVx - change "Unmanaged" to specific project?

    This is a fantastic utility and a worthy successor to MediaMover. Does anyone know a way to "re-associate" files from the generic "unmanaged" to a specific project? Somehow some files come up as "unmanaged" but upon closer inspection, you can see the specific project it should be associated with. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

  • AMA link issues after Tentacle Sync Studio

    As part of our workflow I sync camera (Sony FS7, AVC Intra 100 1080p) and sound  via tentacle sync studio and export the resulting files as new clips- either AVC Intra 100 or pass through depending on camera. 

    This works fine from my old MacPro (Mid 2010) running MacOS Sierra with MC 2019.12.4- files link fine and from there I can consolidate them to our server.


    However, I'm on the road at the moment and was trying to get ahead by sorting out some rushes on my MacBook Pro (Mid 2014) running Big Sur. Same procedure- sync camera and sound and export new files- I've tried both passthrough and re-encoding them to ProRes 422. So when I try to link to these files (MC 2021.6.0 can't go back because of OS) - about half of them work while the others say they can't be linked and Avid suggests installing an AMA plugin- but they are definitely the exact same formats- files names are no different or longer, they also won't import directly. I've tried re-encoding again with Compressor and the same problem persists.


    The original files will link and consolidate fine! Anyone else come across this? (Brand new here so I hope I'm in the right place for this...)
