    Update : Media Composer 2018.12.4 -- Reinstated :) --

    ***  Due to issues relating to deleting media, Avid is removing the 2018.12.4 release from the download center.  We will fix the issues and replace with 2018.12.5 as soon as we can. No timeframe yet.

    Marianna

    ----------------

     

    Location at Launch: Updates to Media Composer (subscription and perpetual) will be released on the Avid Download Center (login and password required) only.

     

    Installer/Patch:  Installing the Editing Application:  The Windows version of Media Composer v2018.12.4 is a patch release. You must have v2018.12.3 already installed. Then use the 2018.12.4 patch to update to this release. 

     

    What is fixed:  The issues Media Composer 2018.12.4 addresses are:

     

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2822. In some instances, the .mxf extension was not appended using Send to Export, therefore “Auto Launch” could not open mxf files.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2927. Intermittently, saving bins resulted in Exception errors.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2902. In some instances, a video mixdown included the effects from an upper nested layer.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2897. After importing, certain WAV files may have had an incorrect start time.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2748. If a sequence with media from a P2 card was loaded into the Source or Record monitor, relinking to add an extra clip would take too long.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2867. In some instances, rendering some effects on linked H264 media resulted in mixed up frames.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2862. (Windows 10) The Audio Tool was not updating when scrubbing with CAPS lock enabled.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2937. In some instances, if you captured with a single track that was not A1, the capture would abort immediately.

    -  Bug Number: MCDEV-10869. Clicking the yellow bin lock icon maximized bins that were minimized.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2967. (Avid Artist DNxIO and DNxIQ) Audio meter levels were not displayed in the Audio tool when recording.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2952. The Audio Punch-In Tool did not remember the last bin selected.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2914. In some instances, when exporting JPG, if you changed the name of the export, the file may have been unusable.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2942. You could not perform an insert edit export of DNxHR HQX media.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2946. (Interplay) In some instances, Media Composer would crash during check-in of sequence.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2910. Importing a non-shared user profile created a duplicate and prevented the application from closing.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2913. The Property Merge window would inadvertently appear when checking in a clip for first time into Interplay.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2901. Media Composer would hang when playing back an Avid Titler + title in the effect editor.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2729. You might not have received the correct find results when searching group clips in PhraseFind.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2931. After upgrading from Media Composer v2018.12.1 to v2018.12.2 or v2018.12.3, batch re-import of Matte Key clips was not working.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2878. The UHD video output is converted to HD when consolidating HD media in a UHD project.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2859. Switching camera angles in Multicam stopped playback if the group contained mixed frame rates.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2857. If you were working on a system using Chinese locale, you might have experienced consolidate and transcode audio issues.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2957. Insert Edit Export failed if only video tracks were selected.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2966. You might have been unable to import an EDL.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2915. The metadata might have been incorrect after importing an ALE.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2841. Saved presets did not always retain the last keyframe.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2805. The Raster Dimension column in a bin was incorrect for thin raster media.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2925. In some cases, after performing a render operation, the green dot remained in the Timeline on PNG clips including a Matte Key effect.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2930. You might have seen performance issues when editing a long AVC Long GOP 25 clip.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2973. Changes to Audio Reference Level settings changes were not properly reflected when you switched between Normal and Narrow Mixer View.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2960. (Mac v10.14.x) When linking to media on a shared network drive, the UNC path in the Drive column might have had the network user name in the path.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2732. When consolidating AVC Long GOP subclips created new master clips that were too long. A new check box has been added to the Consolidate/Transcode dialog boxes. Select the “Re-encode AVC Long GOP media to ensure shortest subclip durations” option when you consolidating AVC Long GOP subclips.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2923. (Mac) You might have received “not authorized” errors when trying to use PhraseFind or ScriptSync.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2947. You might have received errors when trying to set target the Dynamic Relink settings in an SD 25i PAL project.

    -  Bug Number: MCCET-2936. If Dynamic Relink was enabled, imported DaVinci Resolve AAF media was offline.

    Hi. I think I just found a FATAL flaw in your release. I can no longer delete media. I am going to report this bug immediately. 

    The Avid Case #03700551

    I cannot delete ANY master clips from a bin. However, I can delete motion effects clips.

    I CAN delete via Media Tool. The workaround is to delete the media in the Media Tool. Once the media is gone, the empty master clip in the bin can be deleted.

    We are on Windows 10.

    Thanks,

    Marc

    I can confirm a similar issue on the Mac side. Deleting a consolidated clip in the bin causes an instant crash.

    Linked clips appear to delete normally.

    Re: Media Composer 2012.12.4 AVAILABLE 9 May 2019

    I can confirm, we're also having issues with 2018.12.4 on Mac OS. There's a noticable decline in performance (lots of Pinwheeling/rainbow wheeling) when opening bins and clicking on the interface. 

    We've also are unable to delete title files without crashing the system.

    Found a couple more bugs as well:

    FATAL: Removing an effect while in Color Correction mode (Symphony) instantly crashes system.

    MAJOR, but not fatal: After a few commands mouse cursor no longer changes to the selected Smart Tool, so you don't know what's active without looking at the Smart Tool panel.

    Re: Media Composer 2012.12.4 AVAILABLE 9 May 2019

    Avid link 2019.3 reports the update, but there's no mean to download it. I installed Avid link 2019.4, and the update is not even reported, what is this? No sign of 2019.12.4 in MyAvid as well... The product is in the Download centre anyway. Given the feedback here I give up. Nevertheless Avid link needs some refinements, and MyAvid has to be in sync with the download centre.

    This update seems to have some major issues and needs to be pulled immediately.

    @luca.mg: I agree, Avid link need some refinement. My nr.1 request is that the app keeps you logged in. Currently it logs you out regularely and you have to manually log in again. This is extremely annoying.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.12.4 AVAILABLE 9 May 2019

    Hi,

    Marianna, I confirm the same deletion issue with MC 2018.12.4 software only on Windows 10 Pro (1809).

    I imported a Color Bars in a new 1080i/59.94 project type in DNxHD 145 (C drive).

    Tried to delete the Master clip in the Bin.

    Avid Console and EventLog.log contain:

    20190510083714 FatalExcpt Exception: Structured Exception, ExceptionCode:3221225477, ExceptionString:ACCESS_VIOLATION, FaultAddress:00000000016DABEB, MiniDumpFileName:3618bbf6-13d2-4a28-b468-e3e1bc03997b.dmp 18.12.4.51790 

    And you have the Crash report window that appear.

    Media can be deleted from the Media Tool.

    Thanks!

    Ok,

    I second that this patch needs to be pulled A.S.A.P.

    All actions that require deletion of data in bins result in an instant crash of MC. Tested on multiple systems.

    This time I'm really wondering how this version made it to a release candidate. Super Angry

    Take it easy Jeroen, things happen! The 2018.12.4 bug fixes were plenty, I'm more on the sad side than angry. Looking forward for taking a test drive of the 2019.x release, Marianna wrote somewhere in the forums that it brings along a new playback engine, fingers crossed...

    Hey Jeroen, Luca et al....

    With the significant issues with 2018.12.4 and deletion of clips,  we are going to pull 2018.12.4 from Download center. 

    We will fix this and follow up with a 2018.12.5 but not sure when yet.

    Thank you all for your comments and opinions..... It matters and this is one of the threads that caused them to pull it.

    THANK YOU

    Marianna.
