  • Shifting between Unity and Single User Workstation

    Hi. I´m working on a Mac based Avid Media Composer 2018.xx Unity System. Sometime I have to work at Home on an

    Mac Single User Avid Media Composer 2018.4.0 system.

    I copy the whole Project on another external Drive and take it home.

    The Video Files are all Online but Audio is always offline. This happens also when switching From Mac to Windows inside the same Unity envoirement.

    There is a Omfi Media Files Folder and in the Mac Unity the Files are placed in the specivic Worksation Folder and in the single unity the files are directly in the Omfi folder.

    The files stay offline regardless i copy or transfer the files into the direct Omfi folder. The Avid creates a .mdb file.

    if i load that .mdb file into a bin it shows all the audio files - but offline.

    i can´t relink them nor get them updatet. i have to re-batch all files to get them online.

    But this can´t be the way.


    Does anyone have the same issue or knows what i´m doing wrong?

    Hope i discribed my problem properly.


  • Avid Unity Attic (Not Auto Saving)

    Hey gang, Here's the rundown. Working on a feature documentary. Avid crashed and we came to find out that the previous 3 hours of work wasn't auto saved in the attic. For some reason it was only the bin that was most important...the assembly cuts. The bin itself is probably one of our biggest so I dont know if this has anything to do with it. The other bins have been auto-saving just fine...one of them being the title bin which has about 400 titles in it. Is there a reason why this would be happening?

    We're working from the ISIS storage system. There are a total of 4 avids sharing it at the moment, three of which are being used for the documentary. And it seems that two systems didn't get any autosaves for the past 3 hours. Everything previous to this is entirely fine.

    We've reached the maximum amount of files per attic bin but I thought that it would just delete the least recent and create an auto save for the most recent file.

    We're just trying to figure out why and how to prevent this from happening again. Especially when it gets down to the crucial cuts.

  • QNAP TS 873U-RP

    Just purchased, IT set up as nas for 2 users but MC does not recognise the nas. Any papers on getting MC working with NAS?

  • Avid Unity not booting and sounds continuous two beeps

    We have an ancient Avid Unity (2 racks mirrored, main and slave).


    This morning the main rack had frozen and on reboot the main rack emits a continuous one pair beeps (sounds like an alarm) and the rack doesn't reboot at all - black screen.


    I noticed also that one of the fans had stopped, so I'm turning to you fabulous people to wonder whether any of you had come across this in the last few years. Is it likely to be power, CPU, motherboard or memory problems? I'm thinking that the lack of one of the main fans might have overheated the internals. Hopefully thet boot up disc will still be OK.


    We're trying to eek out a little more usage of Unity in the knowledge that we will have to upgrade to something far more simple in the next few months. We're only a small production company that tends to use only two Avid MC seats at one time.


    Many thanks, in hope!

  • Avid Unity Media Engine Software

  • reset password on Videoraid sr?

    Using a avid Videoraid SR 24TB/2 volumes raid 5, I had one drive go bad so I was going to pop it out but accidentally popped out the wrong drive. Put it back in but this took the entire volume offline. 
    No help from Avid since it's end of life. 
    Anyone have any ideas how to get the one drive or the volume back online so I can replace the bad drive?
    Also does anyone know how to reset the login and password thru network login?


  • Avid Videoraid SR power supply

    Anyone have a power supply off a Avid videoraid SR unit that they are not using, LOL! I need one.



  • Intel Optane drive memory

    I just found out that there is a new technology called Optane that "accelerates your HDD", so your normal drive runs nearly as much as a SSD, for a 70$US 32gb memory card.

    Check it out if you have a M.2 memory slot on your motherboard, looks like it may be worth it. I'll have this new setup pretty soon, will give it a try on a 10 TB HD. If it's as good as it says then I think it should make a big improvement on Avid projects, especially in multi-layer !!!

    Anybody working with this?

  • Nexis 2018.5 bug

    If I use the workspace duplicate button, the permissions are visually copied. However, once you actually create the workspace the duplicate does NOT have any permission set.

    Switching back to classic mode (Flash) the duplicate function works as expected.
