  • Backwards compatibility of projects in an Interplay environment

    Hi All,

    A combination of unfortunate events caused one of our clients to end up in a difficult situation. Details on that in another rant soon to come. What matters for all users is to avoid using Nexis client 2021.5 through 2021.8.1 at all cost on any server or client.

    This customer decided this summer it was time to upgrade from MC 2018.12.15 + Interplay 2018.11 to MC 2021.6 with Interplay 2021.3. For various reasons/bugs this upgrade exposed some issues that hopefully will be resolved soon in the next patches of Media composer and Media Indexer (The media indexer fix has already been released when I write this but not tested yet)

    The ongoing problems made the customer decide to roll back to MC 2018.12.15 with Media Indexer 2018.11.1 on client and server leaving interplay engine in the unsupported updated 2021.3 version. Of course rolling back is and was never supported. Avid support also confirmed. Practically though moving projects and bins between newer and older versions wasn't causing mayor issues. This has changed!

    What the current cause is of the observed problems: Random Media offline, remains difficult to determine. The redesign of Dynamic relink seems to play a role but it might also be caused by non dynamic relink related bugs in MC 2021.6. Because of the unsupportedness of the setup now support can't help.

    This is both a request for information if anybody has any knowledge he/she can share on this matter and a warning to hold back on upgrading mediacentral systems until Avid has released further patches on the media composer side (and Nexis!).



  • Media imported into Media Composer/Nexis, appears as offline media in UX Cloud-RESOLVED-

    We have just started using UX Cloud for our clients and ironing out issues.  One we have is that when Media is imported into Media Composer onto our Nexis, the bin and clip appear in the UX Cloud via the web browser, but the media is offline.  Is there something I am missing out like caching, saving,updating or refreshing the project?

  • Organizing Media, Projects vs Catalogs

    Hello! Long time lurker, first time poster.

    I have a question about organizing files in Interplay (soon to be Media Central, is Media Central...?). We just did a big update to our Avid network. Jumped from MC 8.9.4 to 2021.5. Upgraded ISIS to NEXIS. And we're getting ready to update to CloudUX this fall.

    With this update, I am taking over some of the media managment aspects for the station. We had a an Avid trainer go over the basics of the MC update for everyone, then some more backend training for a couple of us that deal with the maintenance side. So I'm also just learning a lot about Interplay and NEXIS in general. One thing that was mentioned was using Catalogs for media that gets reused by multiple projects (ex.: logos, voiceovers) opposed to Projects, which we currently do. In the MediaCentral | Production Management Best Practices Guide, on page 12 it says that "The administrator uses the default Catalogs folder for common elements that might be used by different projects." but doesn't explain why.

    So my question is: What is the difference in Interplay between Projects and Catalogs? Is it a simple organization tool like folders in Windows or are the two treated differently somehow?


    One project I'm leading is organizing footage into an internal stock footage library, so I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly at the start for long term success. (Any tips about this, I'd appreciate!)

  • Filter Search Results by Growing File - Cloud UX

    Hi all;

    I'm currently working in a busy new News studio, and am having to regularly troubleshoot problems I'm having with our ingest server (Woody Live in this instance).

    Before production properly kicked off, it was often enough to just go to the search app in Cloud UX and filter media brought in to the system in the last hour, and I could quite easily spot the growing file icons indicating ongoing captures.

    Now production is fully underway however, it's becoming increasing difficult to spot growing files in the mass of media that's coming in.

    So my question is, is there an easy way to filter search lists based on growing file status?

    I've had a bit of a poke around, but couldn't see anything obvious.


    Thanks in advance!



  • Does anyone actually use Cloud Remote?

    We are starting to use it in our facility, but I cannot see many people taljing about it/asking questions etc.


    Is there anyone out there?



  • Op1A MXF to bin


    I've got a bunch of Composer friendly Op1A files converted with a 3rd party transcoder. In an Interplay environment, how can I get the clip structure into a bin without the db files that are generated on standalone systems?

    Standalone composer creates the PMR and MDB files, and I can usually just drag them into a bin to build the clips - but interplay uses media indexing service and these files are not present or necessary.

    thanks in advance.

  • MediaCentral + LiveU

    Hi guys,

    Has anyone had any experiences with ingesting live feeds from LiveU device into MediaCentral?

    I saw this post here https://videstream.com/news/avid-liveu-enabled-secure-remote-ip-contribution-through-mediacentral/ that's its now possible.

    We are looking at purchasing a LiveU device and wanted anyones feedback on whether it's stable and easy enough to do?


  • Mediacentral users can see all folders (including no access ones)


    We are working with Interplay Assist and Mediacentral. In interplay administrator I have some folders with "No access" permissions. It works well on assist, but not in Media Central. In MC the users can read and use them .


    Can you help me?
