  • Quicktime Live Link - is there a trick to this?

    I'm posting a comment on the Forum because I haven't found anything on the forums that applied to my situation and I'm stumped.  I had an Avid DNX codec file (.mxf extension) with an alpha channel created in After Effects that's linked into my bin and used in a sequence.  I checked "Quicktime Live Link" upon linking in the source browser.  I'm using MC 2018.3 and After Effects CC2018 on Windows 10.  I now need to change the file and would like to simply re-render/overwrite the file with AE.  Avid is supposed to simply "refresh" automatically without any other steps and I should see the changes within MC instantly.  Right?  AE can't render the file because it would seem MC won't let go of the file. AE says it can't overwrite because it doesn't have permission to access the file.  I tried clearing my source and record monitors.  No dice.

    Is there a trick to this?  I just can't get it to work unless I render as a new file name and swap manually in Avid.

  • Possible to Customize Pulldown Menu Item List?

    I'd like to eliminate a multitude of unnecessary items that show up in my pull-down menus and also along the top of my timeline.  I usually use only two or three on any menu and would like to avoid moving down a long list each time.  Can I customize?  Can't seem to find direction in Help, etc.

  • BLACKOUT! Exception: std::exception, what:clCreateContext

    Exception: std::exception, what:clCreateContext

    is what MC tells me on my laptop, it used to work just fine...

    Now there is no playback of video whatsoever.

    Can anyone help me with this please? I was going to edit during a vacation, now that seems to be problematic... This even shows up when Media Offline, so it has nothing to do with rights?

    MC 8.9.4, now trying to update to 2018.03 now.

  • Crash on Full Screen

    I just updated to the new 2018.2 with a clean install that support was helping me on. I created a new user profile. Everything is fine except when I go to full screen nothing plays and then it crashes. I did not have a problem before upgrade to 2018.2 with this system.

    I tried admin user, reboot, color space change Ycbcr 709 and RGB 709, on settings/full screen playback I have left 0, right 1920, top 0, bottom 1080. am I missing a settings with this new install?



  • FrameFlex Problem


    I have a problem regarding the FrameFlex settings.

    I'am editing a feature film with a MediaComposer 2018.3. I used to crop all my material with FrameFlex from 16:9 to Scope. Now I'm suddenly not able to do it anymore. Attached you will find a picture of the problem.

    I can still "strech" or "center crop" my material, but with "Pillarbox/Letterbox" nothing happens. I already tried to change the settings to my master clips. It didn't help.

    Does anyone know this problem?

    Thank you!

  • h.264 in & out: which ist the fastest way?

    I have to ingest a +2 hour program (*.mov, h264) into the Avid. then simply remove some parts of the program and make a new h264/*.mov file for the client. No fx, no renders.

    What would be the smartest and fastest way to get this done?

    I would love to do it in PrPro but there is no CC on this system.

  • Media Composer 2018 installation issues via Application Manager

    Hello Avid Comms

    Just wondering if anyone out there is aware of this issue. Upgraded via App Manager from 8.10 to 2018.2 on a Z840 and the install just dropped out. In all fairness, the machine just dropped out completely on restart (which I think may be a PCI issue with the old DX PCI card needing swopping now according to REV C of the config guidelines. 

    thing is now I can't install either v2018 or v8.10 either via app manager or installation package. Each time the install starts, goes through the motions then get a RED 'X' by the install dialogue and essentially it doesn't install.

    Have had brief convo with our support and they said it may be a Windows registry issue or an Application manager issue and probably best to flag it with you guys.

    I've tried unistalling all avid apps including iLok, even deleting all Avid related folder from Windows and still no joy. Basically fails after installing app manager.

     Can get more spex or screengrabs if this helps.
