  • Relink to AMA when not originally linked

    I received a project where they set it up like this:  

    1. Made proxies in Resolve (Avid Media)

    2. Imported those to Avid

    3. Edit, edit, edit.

    4. Give it to me to online.  

    If the clips weren't originally brought into Avid via AMA but the clips names are "similar,"  they added a "_P" at the end, is there any real way to link those proxy files back to the original AMA clips?

    Oh yes I'll also be onlning in Premiere :) 

  • Double Exposure

    Hi there!

    I am looking for a way to create a double exposure effect inside Mediacomposer, True Detective Opener like. I found out how to do it in After Effects, but have to find a way to do it in MC, because not every company I work for has AE. 

    Has any one an idea? Is there maybe a workaround with Sapphire FX?


    Thanks a lot!


  • Avid breaking Windows Audio service after install

    Hi All
    I've just reimage a windows machine after thinking this was hardware related.

    I have a windows machine on a secure network, which had been running MC 2019.6 fine

    i.e. lots of AD security permissions, no internet.

    We've decided to upgrade to 2021.6 the machine is on the secure network sound works but as soon as i install Avid MC 2021.6 it disables the Windows Audio service. I've tried re-enabling it and reisntalling the driver but it's still broken.
    I've unistalled MC to see if that would resolve but it hasn't.
    What is looks like now is that the serice is running but no audio plays, If i right click on the audio icon and go to Sounds -> Right click on my audio device and click test. I get the error:
    "Failed to play test tone"

    The only way i've been able to resolve this issue is to reimage the machine but again as soon as i install MC it breaks it.
    What permissions do MC need to fix this for the user in Windows?
    I've been stuck on this for 3 days now. Simply changing the service to Local system account hasn't done anything.
    I'm also an administraotor on this domain when installing MC

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Relinking un-consolidated sequence to consolidated media

    Thanks in advance

  • Prog Track CC

    I am on a sequence and did some Color Correcting on V1 with Prog Track enabled.

    Then I messed around with the Color Correction on V2 with Prog Track enable, but I don't like what I did on V2. How can I remove the CC from only V2 and not all Video tracks of the sequence?

  • ERROR - Essential Resource Not Available?


    After my version of AMC 8.5 simply stopped running, I wnet ahead and UNinstalled that and purchased the latest AMC. Install seemed to go okay but when I boot it, I get an error saying "EssentialResourceNotAvailableError." I find nothing online referring to this. It's a BRAND NEW install! Any ideas what's going on? Thanks.


  • AMC 8.5.0 Exception: AMPI subsystem error


    Suddenly AMC wil not open - it cycles through normally but just about when it should get to the initial select project screen, I get the foll.owing -

    "Exception: AMPI subsystem error, ErrorMessage: Assertion in “..\..\Sys\Win32\Sys_FileLocUtilsWin32.cpp”, line 339"

    After some research and tyring to force Avid to rebuild my databases by deleting the MMOB and MFID files, still get the same halt and error. Looked into advice that I should delete the DSM file(s) but I couldn't find any such file on my system

    I was wanting to try reinstalling but Avid doesn't recognize my academic status so I have to wait for someone to verify me... ugh. 

    Anyway, any ideas on how to get past the error? 

    Thanks as always.

  • Struggling to isolate Avid on one monitor.

    Hi, Under "host panels" I'm trying to de-select display 2 but it's greyed out. Is there any way to get around this? See screenshot attached.




  • Autosync: which audio clips where used?


    after autosyncing, how can I know which Audioclips where used in the synced clip? If I select Clip-Name in the sequence settings, I just get the name of the synced clip, and not of the source audioclip(s)...!?
