  • mc 2021.9 version will not open

    im trying the new avid versions and avid is opening and loading everything fine but it gets stuck just a second before the windows where you can choose your projects is loaded. that window not showing up at all. 

    when it stops responding nothing happens. and when I click the mouse on the screen it gets grey and I get the message in the top corner: avid stop responding then I need to exit the program with the task manager. no need to restart my computer.

    I tried to uninstall and install older versions but the same issue occurred. only versions 2018... work ok and avid open like allways. i tried to delete the ama folder, and remove all avx2 plugins but it did not help.  

    i'm using Windows 10 Pro Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2640 v2 @ 2.00GHz   2.00 GHz  (2 processors) 64 gb ram any suggestions?


  • 2021.9 Import Bug?


    I normally import stuff by just dragging it from explorer/finder (ALT/OPT + Drag for AMA Linking).
    I personally just find it better than the contextual menu or source browser.

    I noticed after upgrading to 2021.9... That this does not work.

    Specifically with Matte Keys.

    Still works on video and audio, but does not work with Matte Keys. Can't even AMA link them. I Have to navigate the source browser and link/transcode them instead of just importing them.

    Even the contextual menu for import does not work.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I'm on the latest W10 and MC build.

  • iZotope RX Standard 8 and 9 with Media Composer 2018.12.8

    When I uninstalled iZotope 7 and installed iZotope 8, I found the Clip FX Breath Control 7 was still there along with Breath Control 8. Now that I replaced 8 with 9, Breath Control 9 has been added to the list. All the other Clip FX are replaced by the most recent version except that one.

    iZotope Support suggested I rescan plug-ins, but I think only Pro Tools allows that, not Media Composer. 

    I haven't ever used Breath Control. All the other FX seem to be working. I am just wondering if this will cause problems down the road.

  • JKL Functions

    Hi All,

    I'm having problems with the JKL 50-75-125 speed functions.

    They cease to work at random times.

    More so with large project file sizes.

    I found a work around goto Settings/Trim Settings/Features and toggle JKL Trim off and on.

    And it then continues to work nine times out of ten.

    Did a clean install Twice new users and new projects.


    Anyone else having these problems? 



  • SMPTE bars and tone leaders - Templates

    Hi all, 


    Might anyone have/know of a library of universal SMPTE leader templates in 23.98fps, 25fps, 29fps drop-frame, and 30fps with bars and tone that they're willing to share?


    Thanks in advance :) 


    Can't upgrade because avid link is stuck in synchronizing account.  Read some previous posts about task manager and stoped it, but re booted still not synching.    Help would be appreciated


    thank you


    I'll be the first to admit that the science of codecs and wrappers aren't my strong point.


    I have a blackmagic 12g video assist that will record in DNxHD HQX or DNxHD HQX in an MXF wrapper.

    Does it make any difference as to which one I edit with inside of avid?



  • Fresh Install Issue: Background Queue Not Functioning


    I've had an open ticket with Avid (and tried Elite phone support to no avail) for two weeks now, and I'm still no closer to solving one of two fresh install issues that I've encountered (I say that mostly to indicate that I have gone the support route first here).

    I have two new HP Z6 machines with Windows 10 Pro, and neither of them installed Avid to allow background transcodes to function.

    Avid 1's issue was that the BG services would not stay on for more than a few seconds, and I eventually found a forum where someone had pointed out that many fresh installs lack an .ini file in the Program Data folder (Avid Editor Transcode, to be exact).  Once I created that .ini in Notepad and placed it, it worked literally immediately.

    However, on Avid 2, the services work fine, but a new error prompts:

    The Production Services Engine was unable to make a connection.

    Here's what I've tried so far, which Avid has also recommended, to no avail:

    I've cleanly uninstalled every version with regedits and restarts at the front and back of every install.  I've also tried three versions of Avid (our company doesn't use the latest version, but I did try that installation first for testing purposes):

    Avid 8.4.2

    Avid 2018.12.15

    Avid 2021.9

    I've installed as a separate, new Admin user (per their instructions), and no clean uninstall/reinstall has resulted in any difference in any version.

    Has anyone had any experience with this?  Avid has gone completely silent on this for nearly a week, and as the sole point of ingest at my company, being able to set up BG transcodes and queueing is paramount to my workflow, and I'd love to get that back now that I've gotten two smoking fast machines.

    Thank you for any input and advice.

  • ALT+drag not duplicating seqs

    After 3 years of doggedly sticking to MC2018, I've decided to finally move on to MC2021!

    However, I'm finding that ALT+dragging a clip or sequence no longer duplicates it.

    Has that feature genuinely gone?

  • Timeline has a lot of black behind the footage

    My timeline has a lot of black behind my footage. How do I get rid of it?
