  • Source Settings FRAME FLEX used on the transcoded proxy

    Hello guys!!!!

    I have used Source Settings FRAME FLEX effect on the transcoded proxy files !...  not the camera original file.

    Now I realize that...  on the process to relinking to 4k fottage, the FrameFlex effect I applied to the proxy files,  does not apply automatically to the 4K camera original files.

    (Because they are just two different source files.)

    Is there a way to copy the Frame Flex effect? So Ican applay it to the source files? 

    Thanks !!!!!

  • 2019.6

    Trancoding information incorrect during transcode.  The total Clip information and the "Clips - multitracks simultaneously) is reporting swapped out.  Should be 4 of 12 clips (4 - multitracks simultaneously)

  • What does Avid need most RAM, CPU or GPU ( buying new Mac)



    I am am looking to upgrade my 2014 iMac but I have a limited budget and don’t really know where I will get the biggest performance gains with Avid, should I focus on RAM, GPU or CPU?

    I am looking at either a base configuration iMac Pro, species up 2019 iMac or a 12 core, D700 2013 Mac Pro. I am not fussed about buying 6 year old tech if it will be great at what I need (but only really would be looking at 8 or 12 core on the Mac Pro).

    I am not concerned with benchmarks and scores I just want the best Mac for Avid. I cut hour long docs and drama docs for a living and the occasional low budget feature and plan to be running 2016.6.

    So will mostly be using proxies not RAW files but do need speed for exporting, encoding etc.


    Eventually will look at a new Mac Pro but can not afford one just yet...


    Any advice is greatly appreciated!




  • Updater-File-Download broken, again


    I just wanted to update one of my Dongle-systems to 2018.12.6 and again Avid Link tells me, that the Dongle expired.

    So I went to MyAvid.com to download the updater file, entered my Dongle Serial number an got: 

    • Your product is not supported for redemption. Please contact support.
    I had this issue with the last update to 2018.9 with a few systems. The support told me that they had to fix the Download function in my account. Updating this particular sytem is really urgent in this case. I really don't want to have to contact the support for every update :( Doyle
  • Layered Effect Handling

    Please add a button in all effects that lets you choose to include all layers below of just the layer in which the effect is added to (current layer).  It is rediculous that you are so limited in the creative proccess because your effects tend to effect all layer below (backrounds). I cant animate an object and then move it around without moving the backround!  I have a basketball which I want to grab from a scene and make it go through the hoop in the bckround.  I can isolate the ball but if I mov it, the backround moves with it. You need to bring your effect handling to better standards!

  • BUG - All AVCHD background transcodes fail every time

    Got a bug that's persisted for a few versions.  Every time i try to background-transcode AVCHD media from a Canon XA25, all clips fail with the error "Exception: Failed to build pipes for play operation - see console for details."  And nothing appears in the Console, as far as I can tell.

    This persists in MC 2019.6, and has been present for at least a few iterations of v2018.

    This has been the case on a few different systems, not necessarily ones in my profile.  But the one I've tried most recently is iMac Pro 2017, macOS 10.13.6, 3GHz Xeon W, 64 GB RAM. Raw media stored on Facilis Terrablock.

    Foreground transcode works great, but obviously is far from ideal when the media is for multi-hour conferences.

    Background porcesses work OK for other formats; consolidate is good, and transcode is good for things like XDCamEX, MOV-wrapped H.264 media, and others.

  • exporting captions and matte

    Hi everyone.  Is it possible in Medica Composer to export the titles generated by the subcap effect as a video track with just the captions and an accompanying matte?  It's for the purpose of providing to an animator who is rendering the main video from his software.


  • exporting QT Reference with AMA footage

    Hi there.

    I'm working on an animated film for a client.  My animator gives me the video and I'm using Avid to do sound, sfx, and captions.

    My goal is to avoid transcoding unnecessarily.  So I was trying to export a QT reference that I would then use with MPEG streamclip to export an MP4.

    I realise that you can't do that. My normal workflow is to do a Video Mixdown of course. But transcoding the animated video seems to affect the colour.



  • Media Composer/Davinci Resolve Roadtrip Luminance Problem

    I am a bit frustrated now since I have been trying to fix this issue for the entire day...

    I want to do a roadtrip from Media Composer to Davinci for color work and at the end back to Media Composer for online stuff. 

    My problem is that I can not figure out how to get the graded Resolve timeline into Media Composer without the blacks beeing to high for some weird reason that I do not really fully understand. 

    For example I have a graphic in the sequence in Davinci that has a black background. The black background touches 0 in the Luminance Waveform in Davinci. but when I export it as DNxHR 444 12bit (for example as MXF OP1a) and link it in Avid the blacks are not at 0 but a bit higher resulting in the entire short film looking too flat. 

    I am working in YCbCr 709 Color Space in Avid and the Timeline Color Space in Davinci is Rec709 Gamma 2.4 (Color Science Davinci YRGB)

    I would be very helpful if someone got an idea what I am doing wrong.


  • MC 2019.6 Worst installation/update EVER!

    Installed new MC 2019.6 on three Mac systems. One older iMac, one new iMac and a Macbook Pro 2018.

    All systems had installations issues.

    Older iMac can not run new MC at all.

    It lacks with only one videotrack. Just one layer of colorgrading and you have a spinning wheel and no play at all.

    New iMac the application manager said it failed to do the update.

    It was installed though, and runs good... so far.

    Macbook Pro same as new iMac. Application manager said is failed the update, but the program was installed.

    But source/recorder monitor are all black when playing clips. Totally useless.


    This is a mess. Used a lot of time uninstalling and reinstalling older version !!
