  • Any VTR Engineers out there?

    I have a tape stuck in my Digibeta DVW-A510P player. The tape has come off the spool and is flapping around inside the cassette. All the tape is back in the cassette (no tape threaded around the head). The cassette is stuck in the lower position with the cassette flap open. I've tried the restart with eject button pressed to no avail - the spool just continues to rotate at alarming speed! The manual guide for winding the cassette manually does not seem to be applicable to my machine as the seems no access to remove the side panels. Any ideas anyone?

  • Quick question on editing zoom recordings 25fps to 29.97

    Hi I have a very simple question which I am embarrassed to even ask at this point.  I guess I am going to ask anyway so I dont have issues.

    I Did an interview with an artist on zoom, it recorded at 1280x720 25fps.  

    I am cutting an epk for him.  I have never actually had to use 25 fps ever before.


    I made a 1920x1080i project and linked to the main clip.  I have since made about a dozen sequences by topic.

    Before I go any further do i need to do anything else with the footage.  Its zoom and zoom gets a little sloppy anyway but the footage if you are watching really close when he is talking goes a little out of synch.  

    I am making a number of comps in after effects to use as B-Roll and I have 3 music videos for the artist in 1920x1080i 29.97  


    So I guess my basic question is should I leave my project at 1920x1080i 29.97 or change it to 1080p 29.97  Do I need to promote the motion effect and render it for each clip?  Can I just leave as is then do video mixdowns at the end and then export that way.


    I hope this wasn't confusing and it is a really elementary question that I should absolutely know but I just want to make sure.  Thanks for your responses in advance.

  • When switching from UHD to 1080p, display enlarges now

    Just "upgraded" to latest avid version from 2020.12.

    Now for some reason, when I go from a UHD format setting to 1080p, the display enlarges/zooms in.

    Why. This hadn't happened on any previous version of Avid. and I can't seem to find any setting that corresponds to this.

    I have to finish and master in different resolutions, and this mkaes it pretty impossible to do so.

    Magnifying out revelas the image is  now cropped. Not to mention you've semeed to take away the ability to contrl+click on the record monitor and magnify. I get I can map it to my key board, but over a decade of muscle memory, really makes this annoying. 

  • How can I contact customer support with an issue I need solving?

    This really a question for customer support, but I can't find an email address.

    I have a redundant account which I need deleting so I can use the email address with my active account.

    How do i create a support ticket?  (I'm on a month to month subscription which is currently inactive.)



  • Export only two audio tracks


    I'm trying to export a project wih 4 sound track as mxf

    but  AMC 2021.5 export only a1 and a2 and not a3 and a4

    these are the setting

    where I'm wrong?



  • What has happened to all the latest version stickies?

    Did I miss something? It's quite useful and normal to have pinned posts showing the latest versions, especially for Avid since there are so manySmile And now we're at the 25th September, I wonder if Avid would have been wiser to call the next version 2021.10 on that webinarYes

  • Effect Editor Disappearing

    Hey all,

    From time to time my effect editor tab will disspear from my saved bin layouts. It's back again. After trying over and over to drag the window to my tab and saving the bin layout and setting. It still dissapears. 

    I tried a different user setting and the same issue is happening. I also trashed the MCState file in my setting folder to see if that helped and it didn't.

    Any suggestions?



  • 2019.12 trim/segment mode bug


    I'm cutting at a facility that's running 2019.12 on PC at the moment and struggling with what appears to be a bug.  When I leave trim mode it activates segment mode and I then have to deativate segment mode either by clicking in the TC track or using a keyboard shortcut.  I use trim A LOT and I'm finding it's both massively inefficient plus I seem to be getting RSI from all the additional clicks.  The facility is reluctant to change the version as it's a very big project with multiple edits running (they haven't ruled it out though), so could anyone help with a workaround please?



  • Avid - two reference monitors


    Currently avid is feeding my one reference monitor via BM Ultrastudio Monitor (HDMI). But I would like to also have it connected to my LG Oled as a second client monitor. My plan is to use SDI out from my ultrastudio and play it via Micro Converter SDI to HDMI (I only need HD res) to my TV. Is Avid capable of feeding two reference monitors? Or there’s maybe something wrong with this setup I’m about to use?


  • Old MXF Files from ARRI Camera not readable in MC2020.12

    Hello, I just moved a projekt from 8.x MacOS to PC 2020.12. Exerything went smoothly except for old stock shots (ca. 2012) that cause the system to crash when they are opened. Or linked. They were already in the Avid Media files folders in MXF 185x and now show up as unspported format in the Bins.They were created by the ARRI Camera or exporter.

    AMA linking will not work (unsupported format)

    they open fine in Resolve, and even copying Audio and Video into a new MXF file unsing ffmpeg works immediately.

    But is there any way to just open them? They worked in the 8.5 Mac version. Am I missing some sort of plug in?

    Thank you in advance.
