    In a quest to see what files will work in MC (or in MC after conversion) leaves only one file type that is a problem....HEVC file with alpha.   They link fine and can be seen fine but there is no alpha.

    The only other file that was an issue was GoPro.  MC will not link or transcode them.  But Shutter Encoder will output GoPro files with alpha just fine to QT animation (or MP4 if alpha is not needed).  Then its easy to use them in MC.

    Is there an answer to this small HEVC w/alpha problem?

    BTW...meanwhile, RGBKeyer in MC is making a nice alpha cut with the HEVC files.....so, its really not a problem for MC with any file type...it just takes a little work for GoPro and HEVC files with alpha.

  • Timewarp: Speed Vs Position

    Don't know exactly if there's a workaround, or if this is a new feature request.

    From time to time I need to rebuild from 0 a series of dynamically timewarped clips, so I use AMC Timewarp, editing using the Position window, together with awesome Blend-X plugin using Difference as key option.

    That's good, sometimes needs a lot of time but results are 100% as the original timewarps.

    My question is: why data (keyframes) edited in the Position window cannot be passed and modified in the Speed window?

    I mean, if I open both Speed/Position, both are displaying the same data in a different way, but if I switch the edit mode from Position to Speed, all keyframes disappear and the curve is completely deleted.

    Personally I think that this interchangable feature could be very useful to refine curve using Speed window, doing the same in Position is not so intuitive.



  • Audio keyframes

    Hey people


    I have been editing for over 28 years now and recently discovered the advantages of audio ducking. But right from when the key frames were intoduced for audio gain I stuggled to work with them. I found them way too fifddly for quick audio adjustment and as I often lasso my cuts to enter trim mode, I found them in the way and being slected rather than the cut point ...etc... Also found I neede to expand the audio track so I could adjust the levels but on busy timelines with 24 audio tracks, the timeline realestate was being eaten up too quickly... SO I did not stick with it.

    BUT there must be a better way. So Can anyone advise me on the best way to quickly an easily use the audio keyframes. Aslo a quick way to reset the track so that the audio ducking keys can be removed at once. 





  • Mixed i and P timeline - best way to output P?

    Right mix of 17 cams.  I need to work in i as the majority are i and seem to get artefacts when exporting if working in P.

    Its music so need to output P really - what the best way to achieve that from within Avid and without any Saphire plugins etc?  Been a while since I did it as always have to work in i for TV!  Cheers.


  • Phrase Find

    Did my first Phrase Find search today. Is it possible to Filter out Linked clips from results? Or to only search one MultiGroup?

  • Changing font color

    Creating a title page in Avid titler, I am pretty sure I was once able to change the font color on selected words within a sentence or paragraph. Now, if I try to change the color on a word in a sentence the entire sentence changes.  Is this normal?

  • New bin opening in project not selected folder

    Hi everyone, my company upgraded to avid 2022 a few months ago, and this problem keeps on happening. Whenever I click on a dated folder to make a bin, the first bin opens in the folder, but when I make a second one (we do AMAs and MD (transcoded) separately) it opens in the project instead of the selected folder. Usually i have to delete the bin or move it over, but I'm wondering if anyone else has this issue or if it is a specific bug, I would just like both bins to open in the folder. Thanks

  • MC 2022.12 will not launch on Windows 11 machine

    I'm a little frustrated, because after updating to Avid 2022.12, Media Composer will no longer launch on my machine. When I click the icon, it throws up a useless error box and asks me to send the error to Avid (I have). I'm at a loss - can anyone help me figure out what steps to take to even know what's happening?

    Here are my system specs:

    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-9900K CPU @ 3.60GHz   3.60 GHz

    Installed RAM 64.0 GB (63.9 GB usable)

    System type 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor

    nVidia GeForce GTX 1070 Ti 8GB

    Edition Windows 11 Pro

    Version 22H2

    Installed on ‎9/‎30/‎2022

    OS build 22621.1413

    Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22639.1000.0

    Also - and I'm not sure this is related - but Avid Link will no longer download anything. Every time I try to update Link or MC, it starts to download, and then tells me that the download failed while providing zero other information. This is, as you can imagine, not helpful. I've had to visit the Avid download center through my web browser to download update files.



  • Color Corrected clip gets corrupted

    We have had this problem for awhile.  Color correct all the clips.  Everything is fine.

    Go to export out the sequence....and after the export is done....certain clips have this Red Black Red stripes.  No video...just these colors.


    I found another string that talked about it...but no solutions other than...match the footage and re-insert it and re-color correct.  But why does the export blow it up ?
