  • Can Symphony export a grade as a .cube ?

    I can't seem to find any information on this, so here goes.

    My DOP likes my grading of his shoot so much, that he wants it as a lut so he can view it on his onset monitor(s) while shooting.

    Can Avid Symphony actually export a grade as a cube or aml ? As in resolve, premiere and so on ...?





  • Symphony option $99

     I see videoguys.com have got the symphony option for $99 

    for Meadia Composer owners who have an active standard support contract



  • ScriptSync floating license usage

    Hello all-

    We're considering purchasing a floating license for ScriptSync, since not all of our editors need this feature and the assistant editors helping them move from machine to machine.

    In this scenario, when is a ScriptSync license considered "in use"? Does simply launching Media Composer consume a license, or is it only used while bins are being searched and indexed?

    Likewise with PhraseFind: Is the license only used to build the phoenetic index, or is it always in use regardless of the indexed status of the project?

    Thanks in advance,


    PS- this post also appears in the 'Licensing Options' forum... Sorry for the cross-post.

  • Problem with phrasefind in modified project

    Hi. I have worked in 1080p project. Then director of the film desided to reformat film to 2K format. Format we most liked was 2K 2048x1024 (2:1). But there in no such option in Format tub. So I have builded new project with custom dimensions and the same name as old project and copied folders with bins in new project.

    After that I have new project with new desired dimension. But I can't search cilps and phrasefind can't index cilps even when I have moved them to new bins.

    How can I refresh cilps to be seen by phrasefind?

  • Update to the SS FAQ

    Thanks to Job for his catch - there was an error in the FAQ for SS..... which was correct in th AvidBlogs.


    ScriptSync, you _can_ use multiple languages within a single project. 

    ScriptSync does not automatically index all audio in a project (as PhraseFind does), but rather lets you manually index (selections of) clips/takes in a script. Each time you perform ScriptSync on sections/takes/clips in a script, you can tell it which language to use at that particular moment. This even lets you ScriptSync the middle part of a take as one language, the beginning of the same take as another language, and the end of the take as a third language. 

    Thanks Job and this has been fixed!!!!!!


  • New Virtual Machine option for Media Composer - Late Q2 2017

    New Virtual Machine option for Media Composer 

    Avid is actively working on a new licensing option to allow Media Composer to work in a virtual environment.  Users can just spin up a new version of Media Composer off a virtualized server.  

    Here is some background on the enviroment:

    What is VM?  A virtual machine (VM) is an emulation of a computer system as a substitute for a real (physical) machine.  VM’s provide the functionality needed to run entire operating systems and the applications and programs that run within them. A virtual machine, usually known as a “guest,” is created within another computing environment referred to as a "host." Multiple virtual machines can exist within a single host at one time.  A hypervisor facilitates abstraction of physical hardware resources allowing users to create and manage virtual machines as well as manage allocation of physical resources.

    What is PCoIP?  PC-over-IP,  is a high performance display protocol used to  deliver a virtual desktop to an endpoint device. 

    What is VDI? Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI)  is a desktop virtualization approach in which a desktop operating system runs and is managed in a data center.  The desktop image is delivered over a network to an endpoint device, which allows the user to interact with the OS and its applications as if it were running locally.   All of the data still resides in the data center. 

    When will this be available?  Late Q2 2017

    Questions, let me or RalphC know


  • Find - Markers Wildcards

    Does anyone know if there are any "Wildcards" that can be used to FIND MARKERS. 

    I think it would be very helpful to be able to pull up ALL MARKERS in a project with choice for all bins or just open bins.

    Also would be helpful to use "Wildcards" in all other FIND functions...

    Also while I am at it -  Would really love to see same sift controls as in bins menu instead of just 1 column filter for sifting results in FIND and PHRASEFIND Functions!

    Thanks for listening!
