  • Where is my renewal codes?

    Purchased 2x Avid Standard Support for Media Composer (1-Year) last Sunday from B&H. How long more do I have to wait to get the codes emailed to me?

  • Exporting clips

    Hey guys!  I have an old project that was recorded on DV tape.  I recently opened it up in media composer and it opens perfectly after 15 years!  That is truly amazing!  I think all footage was saved as .OMF

    Here is what I want to do:

    I would like to export all of the footage out avid in a lossless format.  There is quite a bit of clips.

    I have tried two different methods.  One was exporting quicktime same as source.  It seems to export lossless but I am not sure.  For some reason it looked deinterlaced.  Does quicktime deinterlace content. The other method was to export an AAF file.  I transcoded the media to DV25 in order to get the clips out.  This footage was all interlaced.   

    Any ideas on how to export?

  • Avid Link and MC issue

    Hey,

    I can not log into MC now. Had it working 20 minutes ago. I did a reboot and now it says AVID Activation with Avid Link. And it won't activate. 

    I'm in the middle of an edit and this is happening. Please help!

    thanks

  • Avid GPU Performance

    Hi Everyone

    I'm hoping to get a bit of advice.

    I've just upgraded my computer to the latest Intel 10-core CPU with 32GB RAM, SSD scratch drive and a 10TB RAID 0 media drive.

    I decided to stick with the Quadro K620 I had in my last build.

    My question is, for general editing (no heavy effects, just 1080/4K documentary style editing), will upgrading the GPU to a P2200 or similiar actually improve performance?

    From my understanding, Avid mainly uses the GPU for effects rather than playback so I'm not sure upgrading would be of benefit.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated :) 

  • Avid Media Composer and 4K computer screens

     

    Is Avid now supporting 4K or higher resolution computer screens in a decent way? I Couldn’t find much online, and what I have been reading from some time ago, was not so good.

    I am updating my editing suite and want to buy a new screen. Because of a bug in Media composer, that sets my saved two screen layout back to the default one screen every time I start Media Composer, I was first leaning forwards to buy a Dell U4919DW 49” Ultrawide monitor (2K QHD 5120 x 1440). This way I would have two 27” screens without a bezel on one monitor.

    But after some further online research I found out that for less than the price of the ultrawide I can buy two Dell U2720Q (4K 3840 x 2160) screens. This means that I get a lot more screen estate for my money.

    The screens will only be used for the Avid interface, not as a preview or program monitor. Other applications that I use are Pro Tools, Photoshop, After Effects, etc.

    Can anyone confirm that two 4K 3840 x 2160 screens (this means 7680 x 2160) will be working fine without any zooming or scaling? I hate to buy something new and then take two steps back to get it work properly. Or am I living too much with my head into the clouds and is Avid still running behind on this in 2020?

    If you had the choice, which one would you prefer? The two 4K’s, or would it be better to stick with the ultrawide with less resolution for now?

    I am running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 1909 OS Build 18363.535 and a NVIDIA Quadro P4000 on a HP Z840.

    Thanks in advanced!

  • warning, Windows 10 2004 not compatible with older versions of MC

    Hi community,

    I'm putting this warning out for all of those thinking of upgrading to windows10 2004. I tried this yesterday on some HP z420 and Z4's running a mix of windows 7 and windows 10 1803 through 1909 and several versions of MC 8.x

    I have not come to any conclusions what the cause is but all these systems BSOD out when booting after the update to 2004 including when doing a clean install of windows10 2004 and re-installing media composer. I suspect either Sentinel/Pace, ilok or some other drivers included.

    The good news is that windows is capable reverting back the upgrade. Still... Microsoft doing a 'Catalina'?

  • Go Pro 8 Imports

    Hi All,

    I ingest a large amount of Go Pro 8 footage into a project. via source brower On 2019.12.1 and also 2020.6 I'm get random TOD codes. It does seem related to differing frame rates. Yet when I look in Media Info or Video Spec it brings up correct Time of Day Code.

    Anyone else seeing this...puzzled...Harry

  • Flipping images in groups

    Hello, 

     

    I'm working on AVID 8.9.4 and I need to group some footage that was shot upside down. I try to flip it using frame flex before I transcode it. The transcodes look good, the sub clips look good too, but the minute I group them, they are back to being upside down. What gives? Is there anyways around this? Am I forgetting a step here? Thanks

  • Audio Clip Levels Wrong on Rendered Audio Clips

    Anyone else seeing this?

    On 2020.5 and 2020.6 I am experiencing a problematic issue with clip levels and rendered audio clips.

    For instance, I add a piece of sound to a sequence, adjust the CLIP level to -20dB, add an EQ effect to take off the low end (50Hz slider all the way down).

    As long as the EQ is not rendered, all is fine, but as soon as you render the EQ effect, it appears that the clip level is applied twice, and the resulting playback level is -40dB in stead of -20.

    This does not happen on 2020.4, but does happen on 2020.5 and 2020.6.

    This also happens with AudioSuite effects.

    This is quite an issue, as it is impossible to revise older projects, as a rerender of any audio effects will completely change the mix.

     

    MC 2020.5 and 2020.6, Win 10 Prof, z840 dual E5-2640v4, 64GB RAM, ISIS media storage (project is running on a local drive).

     

    Hope this can be addressed soon, as it is quite a serious bug without any usable workarounds, and a recipe for disaster in specific workflows.
