Urgent: Can't reactivate following upgrade - Avid broken

When I tried to restart after upgrade it said something about my licence being invalid (can't remember now exactly) I tried the trick of deactivating and reactivating but now I can't reactivate at all. When I put my valid system ID and activation ID it gives...

Re: Relink 4k footage to dnx36 1080p transcoded files

It depends on how you made the DNx36 media. Normaaly ther clips would retain Source file name and source path. A lot of Post houses copy The source path (the card effectively) to tape id or something similar. Never use tape name for file based media! The clip name is then irrelevant.

I noticed that there are some clips with the same name, I don't know if Avid will have problems when I'm going to relink the final edit. Is the relink procedure based on clip name or am I wrong?

Re: Mixed Aspect Ratio Media Query

Thanks to everyone for such fast replies. We've experimented with graphics on the sides but the director isn't crazy about it. If we can't get a decent upconversion (enough to make it look close to HD - we're not trying to make it look like the 4K...), we'll stick with the back. I'll try the fixes yu've all sugegsted and...
