    Re: MC 8.9.1 XAVC-S support. Good, but lacking common metadata.

    Hey Bart

    Good to know the ins and outs here....    MC 8.9.1 was where we added the advanced XAVC-s support

    Using the Avid Generic Plug-In’s - Avid continues working to remove dependencies on QuickTime libraries. With this release, theAvid Generic plug-in natively supports the following format for linking and playing.

    XAVC-S (mp4)   - this is a HUGE add!!!!!

    H.264 (.mov and .mp4) 

    However older versions have more tweaking done to them. 8.9.4 being the best with the following

    Previewing In-Progress Sequences and Clips While Exporting

    This feature allows you to link to a file that is still being exported (on another system). As the file is

    being exported, you can link to that file and immediately play and use the media up to the point

    where it is currently exported. The duration of the completed exported portion of the sequence or clip

    is automatically updated so you can scrub further as the export process continues up to the point

    where the entire clip is available. An icon shows the clips as in progress. Once complete the clip has

    the regular icon.

    Previewing in progress sequences and clips is currently supported in the following projects when

    performing an AMA File Export to XAVC 4K Intra CBG Class resolutions using the Avid Media

    Processor plug-in.

    • 2K 2048x1080 (23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, 59.94p)

    • UHD 3840x2160 (23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, 59.94p)

    • 4K 4096x2160 (23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, 59.94p)

    In unsupported projects, the Avid Media Processor plug-in option is grayed out in the AMA File

    Export menu.

    Video Data Rate Column Heading

    You can now choose to display an additional bin column heading. The Video Data rate column

    displays the data rate of a linked clip. If no information is derived from the clip, the column is left

    blank.

    Support for Playback of 4 Streams of XAVC-I

    This release of the editing application supports playback of 4 streams of XAVC-I in an UHD 59.94p

    project.

    The minimum system required to support 4 streams of playback:

    • Dual Xeon Gold 6154 3.0 Ghz, turbo up to 3.7Ghz 18-core

    • 96GB (12 x 8GB) DDR4 2666 ECC memory

    • AMD WX7100 Graphics card

     

     

    Can you upgrade?

    just dropping in to point out that MC2018.2 still does NOT have timecode support for Sony A7S and A7R mp4 files.
