    MC 8.9.3 NOW AVAILABLE - 30 OCT 2017

    Media Composer v8.9.3 is being released today, October 30th, 2017.  

    Location at Launch:  Media Composer v8.9.3 will be available from My Avid account, Application Manager, and the Avid Download Center (login and password required), Monday, October 30th, 2017 @12:00 PM EDT.  

    Installer:  There is a Media Composer v8.9.3 Mac and v8.9.3 Win Installer. 

    What’s New in v8.9.3: The following has been changed in this release.

    • Effects Parameters Update - With this release, the following effect parameters have been updated to include a decimal for better precision.
    • Move Clips Up and Down in the Timeline - Two new commands allow you to easily move clips up and down the Timeline.
    • Color Info Tool Setting - A new setting has been added to the Effect Editor that allows you to disable the Color Info Tool from automatically launching when you access a color picker.
    • Dynamic Shuttle - With this release, you can use the Dynamic Play Forward and Dynamic Play Reverse buttons to adjust play speeds at smaller increments than with the usual J and L keys.
    • Audio Pitch Correction - This release includes an Audio Pitch Correction option. Go to the Audio Settings in the Project window.
    • Color Correction Presets - A number of color correction presets have been added to the effects library.
    • Adjusting FrameFlex Parameters - With this release, using the Shift key while adjusting the X, Y, Size, and Z Rotation framing parameters, allows for a more controlled adjustment.
    • Tool Palette Update - This release includes changes to accessing the Tool Palette.
    • Motion Adapters and Source Settings Support for Matte Key Effects - In previous releases, Motion Adapter effects were not applied to clips with Matte Key effects. With
    • this release, Matte Key’s support Motion Adapters. Adapters are applied to both the graphic fill and alpha sub tracks.
    • Relinking Across Frame Rates - With this release, you can relink across different frame rates. A new option has been added to the Relink dialog box that allows you to relink to clips across different frame rates

    What’s Fixed in v8.9.3:

    • Bug Number: MCCET-2091. You might have received an “EXCEPTION: CM_NO_SOURCE” error when adding filler to the start of an audio track containing an Audio
    • Track Effect.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-2093. (Mac) You could not open a bin by accessing the Finder and double clicking a bin from the Avid Projects folder.
    • Bug Number: IPI-1784. The length of spanned P2 clips were different when you checked the clips into Avid Interplay.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-1953. You could not always smoothly drag The Tool Palette Fast Menu to open the Tool Palette. There is a new Tool Palette button that properly opens the Tool Palette. See “Tool Palette Update” in the Media Composer v8.9.3 “What’s New”.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-1912. You might have experienced a delay when opening the project window if an Avid Nitris DX was connected.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-1869. In some instances, while in Script View or Frame View, the thumbnails might not display clearly. This is because the application prioritizes displaying the thumbnails faster rather than having the best resolution for the thumbnails. A new option, “Faster thumbnails” has been added to the Bin menu. For bins with a lot of thumbnails, it is best to leave this option enabled. If you prefer better resolution for the thumbnails displayed in a bin, deselect Faster thumbnails from the Bin menu. This option only applies to the currently selected Bin.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-1966. (Avid DNxIO) If the Source/Record monitor was minimized, the client monitor might not have updated properly.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-2070. In some instances Media Composer would hang when applying a Timewarp effect.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-1735. (Avid Nitris DX) If you had a master clip with a D-track loaded in the Source monitor, and you had a sequence without a D-track, the client monitor would flash black if you switched from the Source monitor to the Record monitor.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-2004. The “Allow 16 channel output” setting in the Audio Project Settings was not sticking.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-2047. If you copied a 3D Matte key from one clip and applied it to another, the 3D Matte key did not apply properly.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-2020. You could not successfully import XDCAM media if “Enable legacy XDCAM import” and “Enable legacy P2 import” were selected in the Link Settings menu.
    • Bug Number: EPIC-1856. When your locale was set to German, Spanish, or Italian, a number of Media Composer dialog boxes displayed cut off text. Avid has made improvements when displaying these languages so the text is displayed properly. Also, a number of dialogs now include tool tips in the appropriate language. Avid will continue to make improvements with subsequent releases.

    Known Limitations:

    • Bug Number: MCDEV-8421. It is not recommended to use Avid Media Composer v8.9.3 with Media Indexer v3.8.1.
    • Bug Number: DAMAN-1927. (Mac) In some instances, the Canon AMA plug-in causes the editing application to crash. Remove the plug-in if the system continues to crash.
    • Bug Number: MCDEV-8397. In some instances, when loading media into the Source or Record monitors, you might have received an “STD Exception” error.   Workaround: The current workaround for this issue is to disabled the Dual Copy Engine option in the Video Display Settings

    Documentation:  The What’s New Guide and ReadMe for Media Composer v8.9.3 will be posted to the Media Composer 8.x Documentation page on the Knowledge Base at launch.

    Re: MC 8.9.3 NOW AVAILABLE - 30 OCT 2017

    How come (for example) MCCET-1914 - XDCAM HD 50Mbit unable Archive or Transcode with IP transcode was presented in last weeks technical seminar as a fix in MC but is missing is this readme?

    Could be an error on the technical seminar side where the fix is related to Interplay and not MC but as I'm having issues at one site that might be related to this, I'm wondering.

    I'm slowly loosing my patience with the MC + 'IP 3.6 and up' soap series of bugs, fixes that do not work and patches which Avid employees themselves have to label as 'do not use, it breaks...'

    Re: MC 8.9.3 NOW AVAILABLE - 30 OCT 2017

    We have two Avids running 8.9.3 as a test. Both machines get a Runtime error when scrubbing over an unrendered Boris Red effect. If it was previously rendered it is fine.  Any ideas?

    I've just installed 8.9.3 on my work system (Windows 7 SP1 on and HP Z840) and the Color Correction Presets are not showing up in the Filters Tab.

    Any ideas?

    False alarm. Rebooted the software and now they're there.

    Note that with the new "relink across rates" feature, there's now an outdated error message.  When transcoding to a different frame rate, the error message currently warns users that the resulting clip won't be able to be relinked.  This is no longer the case.

    Re: MC 8.9.3 NOW AVAILABLE - 30 OCT 2017

    I have installed this over 8.5 (the version that was pre Source Browser that I was forced to keep running as this was giving me big issues with OP Process running in a loop caning my system - documented elsewhere here ).  Thankfully that is gone with this version but on every previous project I open I get a few RTTI pop up errors and a few of these:

    Is this to be expected opening older version projects or is there something I can do to avoid it - its always disconcerting!
