  • 2023.12.0 File Insert Edit issue

    MC 2023.12.0  Intel iMac Big Sur

    I have been trying to use the File Insert Edit tool on a DNx HD HQX 29.97p file for a couple of days.  I always get the following:

    "Insert edit export failed. File is not supported for insert edit."

    Out of frustration I uninstalled and installed 2023.3.1 and it works now.

    Seems like a bug to me.


  • Safe to use MacOS Sonoma?

    Hi all,

    I skipped Ventura so I've been on Monterey for a while. I'm currently in between projects and I just discovered that Sonoma has been qualified for use. Are people liking it? Is Media Composer stable? Safe to upgrade without breaking things? What's been peoples' experiences with the newest MacOS? All opinions are welcome!

  • Error when transcoding

    Hi community, I'm trying to transcode an AMA clip and I keep getting the same error message:

    exception: sys_error, oserr:-5000

    Both the source clip and Avid Media Files folder I am trying to transcode to are on an external G-Raid. 

    I've checked the permissions on the G-Raid and there is complete Read/Write access

    Does anyone know what might be causing this issue?



  • Avid Media Files Location 2023

    Hi, I'm used to working on a Nexis however I'm in between jobs and taking the time to get to know Avid 2023.

    Just imported some footage and the Avid Media Files folder is now located in the users > shared > Avid Media Composer folder... didn't it used to be located in Documents?

    Can I move the AMF folder to the documents folder?


  • Media Composer 2023.12 Upon Quitting get Error


    Not a huge deal but upon quitting the new Media Composer 2023.12 I get the following error message, it doesn't affect me while working as it only happens upon trying to quit the program:




    Recently updated from a good stable 2022.7.  Running a Mac Studio M1 Ultra 64gb RAM, OS Monterey 12.7.3, Blackmagic UltraStudio 4K, Desktop Video Version 12.4, Avid Media Composer 2023.12 and with an Edit Share server with Edit Share Connect v2022.2.1


    Any ideas what could be causing the error upon quitting the program?

  • I/O gear for MC 2023 on MAC M2

    I'm currently running MC 2023.12 on my 2023, 16" M2 MBPro with no problems at all. But I'd like to add I/O gear to send picture to a client monitor, and sound to external speakers. In the paast, I've used AJA and Blackmagic devices, but I'm seeing some feeedback online that the currrent versions aren't compatible with MC on Apple silicon. And I know Avid has discontinued the Artist I/O boxes. Anybody have experience with this?

  • MXF OP1a ProRes HQ export failure

    I'm attempting to export MXF OP1a ProRes HQ with 12 channels of audio. My output sequence is composed of Apple ProResHQ Mixdowns/Imported media. The export process happens without any error messages however it results in a file that is only approximately 300 kb and obvisouly can not be opened. This is a new project. I've successfully done this type of export with a different CODEC however this ProRes is giving me all sorts of grief. Anyone encountered somthing similar and recall a fix? I've also submitted to support.


    MC 2022.7

    OS 12.6.6

  • Media Composer 2020.4 or earlier installer



    Does anyone happen to have a MC installer version 2020.4 or earlier?


    I have a perpetual licence till that version but since all the oled versions of Media Composer are not anymore downloadable from Avid, I cannot install it anymore.


    Maybe someone could share an installer?



  • Use keyboard shortcuts to map settings

    Does anyone have a way to map certain SETTINGS to keyboard shortcuts?  For example:

    I use my computer monitor for Full Screen playback, but I also like to use my external bigscreen OLED.  To change the setting for that I have to open Settings, then User, then Full Screen Playback, then choose my monitor and close the window.  Not to mention switching it all back the way it was once I'm done.

    Another example:

    Before I playback on my OLED I must set the Desktop Play Delay to 7 frames.  So: Settings, then the Fullscreen Playback choices listed above, THEN the Desktop Play Delay setting, THEN change my WORKSPACE to expand my TIMELINE and hide the MC SOURCE/RECORD monitors so they won't be 7 frames behind the OLED during playback.

    I suppose I could figure out a way to do it with macros and defined click areas, but I thought I'd ask everyone here first.


  • Batch create subclips (for CLIPS)

    I finally upgraded to 2023.12 and was trying out the "what's new" features.

    The "batch create subclips" option (for CLIPS) is flummoxing me a bit. from what I can see from my tests (on a single master clip)

     - sublips are created only if In-OUT points are present.

    - does not create subclips based on scene change

    - does not create subclips based on MARKERS!


    If more than one Master clip is selected - it will create subclips from all the selected master clips - but again, provided In-OUT points are present.

    Is this how it is meant to work?

    So what does the option "for entire clip" mean? Selecting that just creates a sublip of the entire clip. This might be useful for workflows where the only subclips are used... but little else...

    ...perhaps I'm missing something
