  • Timeline Setting display "Show Effect Contents"

    Jumped a few versions recently. Currently on 2021.9

    I'm missing the Timeline Display option "Show Effect Contents" Is it a bug that it's not there or has it been removed permanently? Seems to still be in this versions User Guide

    It seemed to be a bug in 2019.7:

    Bug Number: MCDEV-11146.  Removed Show Position and Show Effect Contents from the Timeline settings.


  • How Do I Change The Timeline Font?

    You would think the setting should be in the Timeline Settings section when you right click on the timeline. But there is no mention of fonts in either menu tab (Display or Edit).


    I am not sure how the font changed, but now it is hard to read the text on each track now, because either the font is too small now, or the font itself.

  • Migrating Media from Older Isis Server

    Hi, my client needs to move all the media off an older Unity Isis server. They no longer have support for this system but they need to move all the media from it. When they attempt to copy the media, from a PC they get error message "Error 0x8007045D: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". On the Mac it says "'file' can't be read or written. (Error code-36)". When we attempted to copy/paste the media, the Mac gave the same code, then pasted a corrupt file.

    On the PC, it does allow you to move small filess like jpg and png but not footage.

    Here are the specs if helpful:

    EVO 16 Bay Base 16X12TB – 2X10GbE Optical;

    EVO Base System: 3U, 64bit Multi-core CPU, 16 Bay,

    192 TB RAW (16 x 12TB SATA 6Gb/s), 4 x 16b Ethernet,

    EVO Ethernet Expansion: Ports (iSCSI/NAS), 2 x 10GbE

    Optical, Asset Management, Cloud Access, Avid Project/Bin Sharing,

    Adobe and Apple Project Sharing, File/Volume Sharing, NAS (AFP/SMB/NFS/SFTP) and SAN in the same box.

    Can anyone share any tips on getting around these codes to move the media to another drive? Thanks!

  • Relink to avid media files without the original project

    I have a couple of projects worth of footage saved as avid media files but I can't find the original  (or any version of ) project files.  Is there a way to link to the footage (once it's an avid media file) or import it so I have access without the original project?

    I am creating new content so I don't actually need the original projects but I do need access to the media.

    Thanks for any help.

  • Relink to AMA when not originally linked

    I received a project where they set it up like this:  

    1. Made proxies in Resolve (Avid Media)

    2. Imported those to Avid

    3. Edit, edit, edit.

    4. Give it to me to online.  

    If the clips weren't originally brought into Avid via AMA but the clips names are "similar,"  they added a "_P" at the end, is there any real way to link those proxy files back to the original AMA clips?

    Oh yes I'll also be onlning in Premiere :) 

  • Double Exposure

    Hi there!

    I am looking for a way to create a double exposure effect inside Mediacomposer, True Detective Opener like. I found out how to do it in After Effects, but have to find a way to do it in MC, because not every company I work for has AE. 

    Has any one an idea? Is there maybe a workaround with Sapphire FX?


    Thanks a lot!


  • Avid breaking Windows Audio service after install

    Hi All
    I've just reimage a windows machine after thinking this was hardware related.

    I have a windows machine on a secure network, which had been running MC 2019.6 fine

    i.e. lots of AD security permissions, no internet.

    We've decided to upgrade to 2021.6 the machine is on the secure network sound works but as soon as i install Avid MC 2021.6 it disables the Windows Audio service. I've tried re-enabling it and reisntalling the driver but it's still broken.
    I've unistalled MC to see if that would resolve but it hasn't.
    What is looks like now is that the serice is running but no audio plays, If i right click on the audio icon and go to Sounds -> Right click on my audio device and click test. I get the error:
    "Failed to play test tone"

    The only way i've been able to resolve this issue is to reimage the machine but again as soon as i install MC it breaks it.
    What permissions do MC need to fix this for the user in Windows?
    I've been stuck on this for 3 days now. Simply changing the service to Local system account hasn't done anything.
    I'm also an administraotor on this domain when installing MC

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Relinking un-consolidated sequence to consolidated media

    Is there a way to relink un-consolidated sequence to consolidated media. I'm onlining a show and they have gone back to an earlier cut that was not consolidated.

    Thanks in advance

  • Prog Track CC

    I am on a sequence and did some Color Correcting on V1 with Prog Track enabled.

    Then I messed around with the Color Correction on V2 with Prog Track enable, but I don't like what I did on V2. How can I remove the CC from only V2 and not all Video tracks of the sequence?

  • ERROR - Essential Resource Not Available?


    After my version of AMC 8.5 simply stopped running, I wnet ahead and UNinstalled that and purchased the latest AMC. Install seemed to go okay but when I boot it, I get an error saying "EssentialResourceNotAvailableError." I find nothing online referring to this. It's a BRAND NEW install! Any ideas what's going on? Thanks.
