  • Dell Workstation 7770 and Dell Dock WD19DCS

    I'm about to buy a new workstation.


    I was wondering if anyone uses the Dell Performance Dock model WD19DCS with Media Composer?


    Any issues? 


    Thanks in advance.

  • NEED ADVICE/SUGGESTIONS for editing when each clip has multiple mics/audio tracks

    I'm editing a low-budget film, and the sound house wants to be given a final sequence with all the individual mics on seperate (unmixed) tracks, which will make cutting a scene very cumbersome.

    Production sound recordist used 2 booms and Lavs for each character; takes have been imported and synced into Media Composer so that each source clip has tracks for each mic; so if there's only two characters, source track A1 - boom 1, A2 - boom 2, A3 - actor 1's Lav, A4 - actor 2's Lav, etc etc . 4 characters = 6 tracks for 1 take.

    I'm used to production recordists providing a mixed track which I edit with. So if I want to overlap dialog, I cut first shot's A1 onto Record A1, click and drag the timeline's Source A1 to A2 and cut 2nd shot's A1 onto A2. All adjustments are easy peasy.

    But with this show, the simplest audio editing requires clicking and dragging at minimum source A1-4 to A5-8, inserting, roping 4 tracks just to adjust edits, or selecting 4 tracks to slide around . . . you all know focusing on editing a scene means focusing on the scene, and this is not conducive to that!

    Yes, what I need is what many have asked for but MC can't do -- nesting multiple audio tracks down to 1. Then, when the show was locked, I could go through and "un-nest" all the dialog tracks. But since MC can't do that, IS THERE ANY WORKAROUND??? (sorry, didn't mean to scream.)

    This is all because a) the sound house, to save production money, only wants to get a sequence and media for what's in the show, and not have to load up all source takes and tracks, and b) production recordist didn't make a mix track.

    At the risk of sounding like a prima donna, how would you editors handle this situation? Is there some way to use 5- or 7-channel audio to temporarily combine the different mics into one track, and then later . . . "uncombine" them?

    I hope my explanation isn't muddled. THANK YOU one and all.

  • Red dot in timelime where I'm under specifications

  • Rough edges of alpha graphics

    Hello! I used Resolve for finishing (Color Grading and adding graphical elements) and I haven't had any problems with it. I've started use MC for finishing and got some problems with alpha. The main problem is rough edges of graphical elements. The second problem is low performance with linked alpha graphics. I hadn't had any problems in Premiere or Resolve on this machine but in Avid I have to render video segments with alpha graphics all the time.

    But the performance is not a big problem but the rough shapes of alpha graphics is a big problem for me. I hope there are some settings or effects to resolve my problems. 

    Thank you!

    The upper example is Resolve, the bottom is Avid MC.

  • Program & Source Monitors Blank



    Just updated to 2022.10 but this was an issue that popped up before I did so to see if that cleared the issue. I get audio when playing the timeline but the program monitor is blank and grey. Same goes with the source monitor if I load a clip into it. The monitor button is selected on my video track. Still learning Avid so not sure if this is a settings issue or if it's a bug. Here's a photo. Thanks!


  • Running Media Composer on Unqualified Hardware

    Hi all,


    I've got a Macbook Pro 16'' M1 with 16 gigabytes of RAM. The qualified hardware PDF on Avid's site says I'd need a Macbook Pro with 32 gigs of RAM. Is there any chance I could run Media Composer on my laptop, or is the qualified hardware dead set?
