  • Multicam Weird Behaviour

    I just started a new Project, which is a simple 2 Camera Multicam. I have grouped the 2 video clips. Made a new sequence and inserted the group clip.

    MC has a very different behaviour from what I worked last time (about a month ago). 

    Last time, when I was playing back just by pressing the numbers in the numeric keypad I could select the cameras. Now it doesn't work while in playback mode.

    Also when playing if I select the Up or Down keys (which refer to Previous/Next in Group) the playback stops. Is that normal behaviour?


    I figured it out. When you are not playing back Numeric 1 is Camera 1, Numeric 2 is Camera 2. But when you are playing back Numeric 7 is Camera 1 and Numeric 8 is Camera 2.

    My problem is solved but I'm leaving this for anyone who might search for it.



  • Way to find out what AVID are working on



    Is there a place where I can see what features avid are developing? I would be very interested in that.

  • New AJA Unified Software v16.0

    Aja has released a new driver and firmware package v16.0 which contains everythin.

        It is recommended to set the Genlock setting to Auto for all AJA devices.  For Io 4K Plus and Avid DNxIV only, see your manual for additional options and feature details.
        Using older drivers in combination with v16.0 or later is not a supported configuration and will likely cause disruptive results.

    Release Notes:  Please read the Windows Release Notes for complete details.

    New Features and Changes in v16.0:

    •     HDR Over SDI with Avid Media Composer - VPID signaling is now available for SDR/HDR Transfer Characteristics, Colorimetry, and Luminance overSDI, bringing flexible output options to your AJA device. HDMI ports that were already HDR compatible will work simultaneously, resulting in HDR output via both SDI and HDMI.
    •     HDR support with Avid Media Composer
    •     Native 8K support for Avid Media Composer

  • Editing master clips

    I am working on my first project, a music video.  I have a music audio clip that contains several takes and some pauses.  Can I edit out the pauses and put markers in the master clip, or can I do that only in sequences?

  • PFN_List_Corrupt Blue Screen

    Dear Avid Community,

    I am having a serious issue with my Avid and the Nitris DX accelerator box.  Eveytime I leave the Avid Media Composer (current version), the entire system crashed with a PFN_List_Corrupt blue screen.  The Nitis DX drivers are up-to-date.  What needs to be done to correct this problem; please instruct.



  • Avid Titler + Slow performance

    Hi all,


    I'm getting really slow playback performance the second I add a titler + effect onto my sequence. I have to render the titler+ effect in order to preview my title in real time. 


    For context, I'm on a 1920x1080 timeline, with DNxHD SQ footage.


    I'm on 2020.2 too. is anyone else having slow performance with titler +?

  • No dongle update

    I cannot update my dongle through Avid Link. I see No avd. file. If I go to my master account it is no possible to  download the avd. file. Am I doing something wrong ? 

  • For those of us who use QT and QT reference

    I have read many posts on workflows and am confused as to why moving away from QT and QT reference leads to such complicated workflows. For years I have simply imported MP4s, edited and then output as a QT reference to TMPGe to create the final MP4.  The question now, what is the easiest way to import MP4s and when ready, send the sequence out to make a MP4 for delivery.  Appreciate that the software can now do 64 bit 8k etc. but feel that for many of us not creating Hollywood feature films, the process has gotten harder and longer when not using QT.  Thanks in advance. 

  • "1" folder in Mediafiles


    I work as a post production assistant in a company. For each projet, we have a shared workspace that any editing room can access.

    In each workspace, we have an AvidMediafiles folder.

    When creating transcodes, the MXF files go to the "nameoftheeditingroom".1 folder, inside the Avidmediafiles folder.

    However, I noticed a few days ago that the MXF I created in the past few days go to a mere "1" folder, and not "nameoftheeditingroom".1 folder.

    I had to change the name of the folder as a consequence. 

    Does anyone know how to name this folder by default to "nameoftheeditingroom".1 ?

    Thank you in advance for your answer!


  • Same as Source Export Issues

    Hi Friends!

    I am trying to export a sequence as Same as Source, simply because the customized options do not look as good to me. but whenever I use this option, upon playback, the resulting qt file stalls and is not fluid. It freezes and then picks up again. By the way I should mention that when I select Same as Source,  MC prompts me to use DNX145 so I agree. For some reason when I customize to do a DNX145 export myself, it does not look as good as when it is exported via the Same as Source option, even though it defaults to the same thing.  Anyway, is this stalling and freezing on playback an issue with quicktime? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling quicktime to no avail. I am running an old version of Media Composer, MC7, but it has been a workhorse until now. Right here on the last hurdle of this marathon project.....  Any help would ge greatly appreciated.
