  • Errors when trying to subclip AMA sequences as AAF for Resolve round trip

    Hey there! I've been having issues trying to export an AMA sequence as AAF for Resolve round trip. When I try to bring my AAF into Resolve, it's saying that lots of clips aren't found, however when I go to grade them, it appears they're all there. But when I render as an Avid AAF sequence with file name set as "SourceName", I get a trillion errors when trying to import the AAF back into Avid:

    "****Sub clip conflict found.*****

    The Clip you are importing "(clip name / every single one)" conflicts with one already found in the system. Do you want to replace the original with the one you are importing?"

    I'm naturally frightened to hit yes or yes to all, but when I click "no to all", the shots that I specifically colored all show up in that new AAF time line as MEDIA OFFLINE (while they deilver what I assume are repeats of the original subclip files all in the GRADED folder I made). Are these files the same name as my subclips so I can match them when I relink the sequence? Would it be easier to bring in a whole new timeline over my original sequence's audio rather than trying to relink!?

    In general I'm having a lot of issues just performing this round trip while following the instructuons here (which have been the same in other tutorial): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElWk3b9CZaY ; when I try to export with "Link to media" selected as export method, it tells me I need to have audio linked as well. And then when I try to return the AAF sequence into Avid, I'm having all the problems I said before. 

    I'd really appreciate any help or direction, thanks!!!



  • MC 21.12.2 can no longer be shut down


    Since installing MC 21.12.2, the AVID MediaComposer can no longer be shut down and I have to force it to close.

    I configured my cutting station a year ago to be able to use Titler plus and Marquee again:

    MACOS 10.14.6
    AVIDMC 21.12.2

    I then let the support contract expire after 8 years because it was my plan to make ends meet with this configuration for a few years. And because I didn't want to and couldn't work with the Titler+ and I didn't have to renew my BCC Effects every year.

    But since then I've had the problem that the AVID MediaComposer can no longer be shut down and I have to force it to close because the program no longer reacts. I tried different settings, also new ones, as well as different and new projects. Also a downgrade to 21.12.0 or 20.12. didn't change anything like a complete reinstall. Now in the last year the AVID suddenly could not be started 3 times (last sommer once and two times this winter) and I had to reinstall the program. Only when I had really deleted all the old AVID data from the hard drive manually before the new installation did the program run again after the new installation.

    I've tried different things and talked to some people. All without success. Does anyone know the problem and can maybe help me? That would be great, thanks a million!

    Greetings Frank

  • After Effects export format not recognized by UME

    What codec and wrapper should I choose from those available in After Effects in order to import files into Media Composer 2022.7?  QuickTime is the only obvious choice of wrapper with either DNxSQ or ProRes, but the Source Browser indicates that the resulting clips can't be linked.  The Animation codec doesn't work either.  I realize that 32-bit QuickTime is obsolete, but which of the formats available in the current After Effects will work?


    Mac Studio with M1 Ultra, OS 12.4, Media Composer 2022.7


  • Create a master list of source files that includes total duration

    Hello, I have searched the forums and couldn't find anything that addressed this specifically so hopefully it is not a duplicate thread. 


    I'm assisting on a feature documentary project that uses a lot of archival material. Most of this we have received low res. I have been creating a list of all the source files used in the edit by exporting an AAF and then re-importing that into an empty bin and exporting the bin as a txt file. I then upload this txt file onto airtable after converting to csv. This has been very useful for letting the archival team know what clips are currently in the edit. 


    We are starting to lock though and people would like to know durations. I can obviously export an EDL, but as this breaks the video down into events for each edit point and the editor has made significant cuts to the archival material the list is huge and reqquires the durations to be manually added up. if I select the durations or in - out columns in the bin, this doesn't work as duration is still for the entire clip and in-out is not working either. 


    I'm hoping that somwhere out there exists a way to generate a total duration or timecode range used in an EDL into a simple csv document. I have resolve and premiere pro as well in case there is a way to re-route the aaf through a third party app

  • ALT Key is working as "Previous trim"?



    I'm a Windows 11 user and I recently switched from Premiere Pro to Media Composer.  I hadn't touched MC since college in 2017, but now I'm re-discovering how sophisticated the software is, and I find myself editing with more joy.


    But I came across a small issue - The Alt key seems to behave weird.


    Whenever I click on timeline tab to highlight it and press Alt key, it somehow seems to behave as "Go to previous trim".  It does function as a modifier key, but it's pretty inconvenient when the playhead constantly tries to go back to the beginning of the timeline.


    Alt key works fine with other NLEs so I'm wondering if it's some settings that are causing this issue.  

    I'm using MC 2022.12.


    I'd really appreciate if you could help me out!

  • I purchased MC but Avid keeps launching MCFirst

    As title says I paid for a year subscription to Media Composer but after I download and install, the MC First software launces. VERY frustrating!

  • Best Instagram workflow?



    I'm sure there are lots of editors on here who have to deliver square format versions of the films they're editing.

    I need to make some 1080 x 1080 content from some 4k cuts. 

    I haven't quite nailed the best way to do this...


    I was wondering if anyone could pass on some tips for best workflow, like:

    - Do people tend to make a mask to lay over the sequence, and help recompose shots?

    - Frameflex the best way to reframe shots?

    - Best export settings?

    Any other best practise appreciated!
