  • Deck Configuration missing 2020.10

    I went to capture some DVcam today, I can find no deck configuration in 2020.10 settings. I cannot auto-configure from capture either. It was all there in 2020.9. 

  • Source Browser.


    I don't see in Link -> Source browser -> Text View nothing.

    I can't choose columns.

    Can anyone help me?



  • Support renewal time...

    So it's £380 ($385 via videoguys) to renew support for another year and £308 ($299) to cross grade to an annual subscription.

    The 'support' is effectively an annual subscription anyway, and I can see that the cross grade only buys one year at the discounted rate (to encourage folks off the perpetual license?)

    So what to do? Fact is that Productions has made Premiere much more usable, so I've been on that much more recently. I'm minded to let support lapse, stick with whatever Avid version is current, and think that I can always rent by the month/year if I ever need to get back on the horse.

    Anything I'll lose by doing that? 

  • How can I import the video to timeline don't need to dragg with mouse?

    Hi,can the video in the bin or the video clip marked with markin markout in the preview monitor be directly imported to the editing timeline instead of dragging with the mouse?

  • ProRes Export issues

    4 different boxes trying to export ProRes (Windows) through Media Composer.  

    If I try to export a 45 min 1080 program to Prores, I have success if I do a stereo output.

    If I try to do Direct output for a 10 channel output, I get either a Memory error, or a consistancy check error on 3 of the 4 boxes.

    Box 1- Home made i9 with 64 gigs ram and Radeo VII graphics card. -Errors out.

    Box 2- 1 year old HP Z4 Workstation Intel Xeon 3.7 ghz with 32 gigs ram  Quadro P2000 graphics card- Errors out

    Box 3- same as box 2, but with a P4000 graphics card - Errors out.

    Box 4- has a Xeon gold 5118 2.3 ghz (dual processors) 128 gigs of ram, and 2080Ti graphics card.  This is the only box that completes the output.

    All boxes are exporting to 10 shared storage. Boxes 2,3,4 are at one facility. Box 1 at a different facility.

    Exports seem to go about 3/4 of the way through before erroring out.

    Is this simply a ram issue? Do I need 128 gigs to get this to work, or is this a video card issue?

    What resource is Avid more dependant on for this type of export?   

    I have had this happen over several shows, different lengths of programs.  The only consistancy really is the direct output seems to put a huge stress on something somewhere. 

  • HP Workstation with Xeon or i9?

    Hi everybody,


    I'm thinking about buying a new workstation to replace my HP z440 - which is still pretty great, to be honest.  I would just like to speed up the rendering out process a bit if possible, since I have to upload rough cuts every few days.  

    So the idea is to get a bit more power with the new HP z4.  There's a model called 9LM35EA#ABD that runs with 14 cores which sounds like a substential upgrade from the 6 cores I have right now.  But - it's intel i9 and no longer Xeon.  I  have no idea how that impacts the overall performance - I understand that i9 chips mean there's no ECC Ram etc, but I can't really tell if that will be an issue with stability etc.  I have been editing with HP Xeon workstations for 15 years now.


    So - is anyone here using an i9 workstation?   Is Xeon for some reason still superior with less cores?  Will the render out process still take just as long no matter how many cores and GHz's you throw at it?  

    Thanks so much everyone!



  • Interplay - checking in subclips and media



    I was wondering if there is a way to create a subclip and check that into Interplay without interplay taking both the subclip and the parent clip?


    I don't want to check in a huge clip if I am just using a small portion of it due to limited interplay space.


    Kind regards

  • AMC Hangs on Reboot after deleting *.pmr files



    I needed more space on two of my internal drives, so I got larger ones (10 TB) and did a sector-by-sector cloning of them. Everything seemed fine but when I go to launch AMC now, I get an error message saying there are *.pmr files corrupt in one of the Avid Mediafiles folders. I deleted the local msmMMOB and msmFMID files assuming AMC would rebuild them.

    When I launched, AMC started to rebuild the files and then just hung there (stating something like 38 seconds of 1:47 total). I left it alone for an hour and was still hung with no change.





  • no risk to delete this?

    need to free upp some space in a project that is under production

    if I use Media Tool and delete files with this criteria, that should be quite risk free?
