  • Interface language???



    so we updated to Media Composer 20.8.0 only to discover that now all the interface and Menus are written in our local language (French, as windows local language is). Well, it's been years that we totally let go the possibility to have the interface other than in english, and as a matter of fact, we're used to it and are now totally lost with all the menus in French :S

    We've looked into Preferences Menus of Avid MC and didn't find any option to set the interfae language.

    How can we turn the interface language back to english? And please don't tell us we have to deinstall, turn windows locale language to english and reinstall.


    Thank you in advance for your help


  • User Settings Go Blank

    I have a user running Avid 2020.8 on a Virtual Machine in Windows 10 Pro connected to a Nexis. He is encountering an issue where, after working in Media Composer for a few hours, he will open his User Settings and find that his settings are blank. The only way to fix this is to close the project and relaunch it. Has anyone encountered this issue and have any fixes?

  • Best way to get 9:16 out of 16:9 HD?

    Its a social media thing as turning the phone through 90 degrees is too much!

    So I started off a new project in 1080x1920 format and bought in my 1920x1080 sequence and frame flexed it via crop.  This of course pushes the original 1080 16:9 height to be the 1920 new height so it all gets a bit soggy! This is not the way I thought! 

    What i really want to do is mask the 1920 sides and crop them off later keeping my native 1080 pic height.  I think the maths are 606w x 1080 height to give a 9:16 frame? So have punched this into mask margins and can adjust my landscape pic framing to be less than awful within this frame!

    How do i get that out then as a 9:16 MOV though and clip the sides off?

  • HP Z4 Configuration advice


    I am in the process of buying myself an HP Z4 workstation for Media Composer and wanted some advice if the configuration I'm going for is sufficient for my needs.


    For my own projects, which is probably most of the stuff is be doing, it would be mainly HD material, that is transcode myself if I can't work native, but if I do I'd wanna be able to conform/relink to fill HD and finish.

    Footage might come from sources like a Canon 5D for example.

    There might be an occasion where I would get 4K footage and ideally I'd be able to transcode that, so I can work on it. If possible that on a short sequence I can relink and finish that myself, then great. But in the unlikely event of really have to finish in 4K is probably take it into a big suite.


    If I get to use my avid for my usual work, is probably get stuff on a drive that's already been transcoded to DNx36 or something to edit. They would reconfirm or relink on their end once I'm finished.

    And I don't think for most TV programmes I work on they'd finish in 4K, more likely just full HD

    So yeah the bulk would just be HD, possibly transcoded to work with, unless it's a small project and my machine can handle editing in native.

    The configuration I'm looking at is

    HP Z4 I9-10920X 3.5GHZ 12C

    1TB M.2 Z DRIVE

    32Gb or 64 GB RAM



    Would this work for my needs, do I need 64GB or will 32GB be enough, would the RTX 4000 be overkill and the P2200 sufficient, what is a good media storage option for me?

    I'm gratefull for any advice


  • Avid background services stuck at "pending"

    Hi all,


    I'm having an interesting error here, WheneverI try to transcode anything or render any effects using the background render feature, it gets stuck on "pending". I was wondering how i'd be able to rectify this issue?



  • Effect of changing raster using Format tab

    It says in the timeline window that my project is 1080p/25. If I change it to 1080i/50 using the Format tab, what happens in terms of quality, rendering etc., or does the change only effect downstream hardware?

    I've got an Intensity Pro 4K connected with the S-Video outputs to my monitor and I can only get an output if change the raster to 25i PAL, 25p PAL or 1080i/50. My monitor is blank with the project set to 1080p/25.


  • Avid media composer frame flex colour adaptor query
    Hi, Apologies for the dumb question...  I was wondering why avid media composer puts frame flex colour adapters to my raw media? I understand that they are some sort of luts put on automatically by the software? I have an option to remove them in source settings but I thought i'd come here for some insight before I did that. My project settings are 1920x1080 at 29.97 fps, Raw media is also 1920x1080 at 19.97 Philip
  • Braw and Avid stability

    I've been getting a lot of lock ups in Avid (2020.6) lately, and keep clueing into the fact that "oh, ya, i'm using Braw links" 

    Files seem to play fine for 5, 10, 15 mins, then .... whitescreen, with no recovery.  I actually find Avid pretty good a coming back to life in other instances if it goes white screen on me, but not with Braw on the timeline.

    If i transcode, the crashes seem to go away.

    Anyone else having similar issues?

  • Audio Delay Compensation

    Is there a way of delaying the video to compensate for an audio plugin that's used for an entire track which then delays the audio?

    For example, I was using iZtope RX6's De-click for an entire track and it delays the audio. It does give you a precise measure of the delay but not sure what to so with that number.

    The workaround is to put the effect on each clip and render.
