  • Red dot in timelime where I'm under specifications

  • Rough edges of alpha graphics

    Hello! I used Resolve for finishing (Color Grading and adding graphical elements) and I haven't had any problems with it. I've started use MC for finishing and got some problems with alpha. The main problem is rough edges of graphical elements. The second problem is low performance with linked alpha graphics. I hadn't had any problems in Premiere or Resolve on this machine but in Avid I have to render video segments with alpha graphics all the time.

    But the performance is not a big problem but the rough shapes of alpha graphics is a big problem for me. I hope there are some settings or effects to resolve my problems. 

    Thank you!

    The upper example is Resolve, the bottom is Avid MC.

  • Program & Source Monitors Blank



    Just updated to 2022.10 but this was an issue that popped up before I did so to see if that cleared the issue. I get audio when playing the timeline but the program monitor is blank and grey. Same goes with the source monitor if I load a clip into it. The monitor button is selected on my video track. Still learning Avid so not sure if this is a settings issue or if it's a bug. Here's a photo. Thanks!


  • Running Media Composer on Unqualified Hardware

    Hi all,


    I've got a Macbook Pro 16'' M1 with 16 gigabytes of RAM. The qualified hardware PDF on Avid's site says I'd need a Macbook Pro with 32 gigs of RAM. Is there any chance I could run Media Composer on my laptop, or is the qualified hardware dead set?




  • Exporting Timeline template and mediacreationtool for a specific user


    Is there a way to export mediacreation tool and timeline setting for a specific user so when re-install media composer on another conputer with the same user name I have already ready to use it?



  • Media composer 2020.10 Where timeline templates are saved?

    Hi ,

    Would like to know where the timeline templates are saved. Unlucly I delete the to audio track of the clips. I tried to reinstall Media Composer but I hadnt't success.



  • AvidDownloads files need to be retained?


    While searching for files related to my hanging while loading issue, I came across files located at C:\AvidDownloads, with subdirectories "Downloads" (containing zipped files) and "EX" containing what appear to be unzipped files related to the Downloads directory. I'm speculating these are the directories that Link places files into when updating Media Composer.

    Are there any reasons to retain these? They are just eating up storage. Surely the installed application files live somewhere else, right? (assuming I used the default installation locations)

  • subcaps stylesheets

    I've been on 2022.10 Since it came out, and have just recently noticed that all my stylesheets from the previous version have disappeared.  PITA, but not insurmountable.

    But I'm not finding when I create a new style sheet it is not staying with my profile. It seems to be married to a project instead.  Typically they would stay with your user profile, so you didn't have to recreate them everytime you jumped to a different episode.


    I guess it is possible that years ago, i moved them from a project setting to a user setting somehow, but i'm not even sure where they are in the settings tab.
