  • 2024.2 release

    Let me just say that even though 2024.2 seems like a small release, to me it is one of the best releases in recent years.

    Every new feature fits perfectly into my workflow. Transcription export to subcap is fantastic. Now I can translate a subtitle file and re-import it. The other features are also more than welcome.

    Good to see the roadmap going in the right direction again.

  • PhraseFind AI Index takes over CPU on Mac Studio

    Anyone else finding the AvidPhoneticIndexer overwhleming the CPU on their Mac Studio M1 (more than 1,800%)?

    Causes playback to struggle.  I have to turn it off.  I'm in the middle of a project, so I'm reluctant to do the upgrade to 2024.2, but perhaps this update fixes this issue?

  • ReadMe file for 2024.2?

    Please post that to the Avid Knowledge Base. Thanks.

    If it's there already, and I've missed it, apologies.


  • 2 Adobe PP features trying to find on Avid MC ?

    Avid has been such a positive force in my work life and I am trying to find a couple features in Media Composer that I use simply and regularly in Adobe Premiere Pro.

    I take the whole AI thing and editing with a grain of salt but I use both Adobe PP and Avid regularly for the same types of projects. I am primarily an offline TV and Film Editor so my music and sound mixes are temp but really need to be pretty good to lock a show and send to producers. This always includes a temp music/sfx/graphics mix and and a dialogue edit and sweetning. Like I said I take the AI and editing thing with a grain of salt. At the end of the day you have to choose 3 points and edit but here are a few things your competition are doing and none of it requires purchasing expensive third party plugins and packages for hundreds and thousands (which I will not do) it is all in the Adobe Creative Cloud ie audio and video plugins and a apps that are fully integrated.  For a similair subscription price to Avid MC you get so much more. You don't pay more than the subscription price.

    I must say that Adobe PP doesn't come close to Avid in trim mode (which is the bomb) or Project and media management (which is the bomb). It is such a pain in the $%# to share assets among Adobe projects. Avid does it so well. Here are a few very practical simple things I do on Adobe PP that I am trying to find Avid equivalents for without having to go to a third party software or buy and expensive plugin. If there even is one. They are as follows:

    Adobe PP has an audio tool called "Remix" in PP which allows you to shorten or lengthen a full song to fit whatever length you want. The software calculates the edits. I must repeat this is for temp use. ie this music is stripped out upon lock and replaced by a pro. Exceptionally useful for me and a monumental time saver. It can be crude at times but easilly refinable. Does MC have same???

    The second thing they have and Adobe describes this as an AI tool is noise reduction. I get some tracks that are pretty noisey because you might be shooting next to costruction, airport,traffic etc. Most tracks are great but It's unavoidable. Adobe's denoising button does a remarkably good utilitarian job with a simple press of a button. Remember I am an offline editor. I have an Avid third party plug in which I paid extra for which is often crashy and very clunky to use. This feature is built into the Adobe editing software. Also there audio suite i pretty darn good.

    Does or can Avid do these two things as easily and cheaply and simply as I do on Adobe PP? I cannot find these two features in MC. Yes Avid has a noise reduction plug in but it is nowhere as good as the Adobe version. I know MC has things close to what I am asking for but does it have the ability to do exactly the same without going to a third party app or an expensive third party plugin.

    All the best and thanks for all your great help.

  • Bug Report: Status bar not updating with sequences selected in Frame View

    Running Avid Media Composer 2022.12.6 on Ventura 13.6.1.

    When in Frame view, the status bar showing number of selected clips and duration displays incorrect information. This seems to only be when a sequence is in the bin.

    Correct information in the status bar seems to be displayed in the Text View mode.

    Let me know if you need any more info!


    I wonder if this bug is present in 2023/2024?

  • What is the phone number for Avid Sales?

    I discovered I can no longer automatically renew my annual membership online unless I pay in euros and it won't take my payment since I pay in U.S. dollars.   It does not allow me to change the currency.  Also I can't find the phone number for Avid Sales on the Avid web site.  I tried googling and it only gives me the phone number for Avid Support of which I have to pay $25 to speak to support.

    I want to speak to sales so I can subscribe to a membership that does not require me to pay a fee to speak to someone.  I also don't want to create an online "case" because nobody ever calls me back.

  • 2023.12.0 File Insert Edit issue

    MC 2023.12.0  Intel iMac Big Sur

    I have been trying to use the File Insert Edit tool on a DNx HD HQX 29.97p file for a couple of days.  I always get the following:

    "Insert edit export failed. File is not supported for insert edit."

    Out of frustration I uninstalled and installed 2023.3.1 and it works now.

    Seems like a bug to me.


  • Safe to use MacOS Sonoma?

    Hi all,

    I skipped Ventura so I've been on Monterey for a while. I'm currently in between projects and I just discovered that Sonoma has been qualified for use. Are people liking it? Is Media Composer stable? Safe to upgrade without breaking things? What's been peoples' experiences with the newest MacOS? All opinions are welcome!
