    Media Creation Setting

    There used to be a setting in the "Settings" tab titled "Media Creation". Avid editors used to be able to go to this setting and pre-select the drive they wanted Titles, Renders, and Efx to go to.

     

    Sadly, the Media Creation setting is no longer there.

     

    But! I have good news! The exact same task can be accomplished by clicking on a blank setting at the top of the "Settings" tab. Why did avid chose to remove the name from this setting and have all these options live under a mysterious un-named blank setting tab? Was it an act of intentional disobediance to make life harder for Avid Editors? Or was it simply a mistake? Perhaps we will never know.

    Huh..?  What version?  It's there for me up to MC 8.7.  Also viewable by hitting Cmd+5.  I can't ever remember any time when it went away.

    (SYSTEM 1) iMac Late 2012 27" (13,2), Mac OS X 10.11.6, Avid Media Composer 8.7.2, Intel Core i7 3.4 GHz, 32 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2 GB... [view my complete system specs]

    Re: Media Creation Setting

    Sorry - just realized I'm in the "Mac" section of the forums. I use Mac at home, but switch to a PC when I come into the office. Maybe it's just a PC glitch. I'm on 8.7.2.44855 on a PC today and just spent an hour trying to figure out where these settings went.

    I see Media Creation (as usual) in my Settings with both 8.7.2 and 8.8 on W7 SP1 machines here.

    Edit add. From the Project windows Hamburger menu have you go "All settings" selected
