    Re: Media Composer 2012.12.4 AVAILABLE 9 May 2019

    HI there

    We've installed it on quite a few machines, and I think we can't just roll back a patch we have to uninstall and reinstall and all the plugins etc 

    If it's going to be a while is it possible to have a rollback patch so 2018.12.3 becomes 2018.12.5 ?

    Nige, if you’re Mac based you should be able to just run the Media Composer uninstalled in Applications/Avid_Uninstallers and then run the 2018.12.3 installer. As long as you don’t manually remove plugins from Avid’s Application support folder they should be fine.

    Yes they do. But if you buy a new car for example, you do not have to ask: 'Does it come with wheels? Are they round and will they last for more than 3km or miles?' These aspects are within the realm of common sense.

    I expect a company like Avid to have a software development business model + communication and testing procedures in place for all their products that are used in professional environments that prevents these essential functional issues from being missed.

    Crossing my fingers is not a viable method on which I can decide to roll out a piece of software be it in a multi million $ broadcast environment or a small single seat production house on a deadline. Only testing is and always was. And that most definitly also applies to Avid,

    wow. this is so far beyond the realm of acceptable. we've been waiting for this patch to fix bin save bugs since january, we can't go back to 2018.11 because of new features and macos support, and we get a release with a basic function completely broken. not cool.

    Yes, this is a huge bummer. However, the workaround mentioned in the first post does work. You can delete anything in Media Tool. I created a "temp" bin that has all the clips I want to delete while I am editing. But I am rolling back to 2018.12.3 in case there is something else not yet discovered.

    If uninstalling on many systems is an issue, then using the workaround is the most effective use of anyone's time.

    Hmmmm, looking at the download center, that timeframe was probably wishful thinking. Is there a new eta that can be shared?

    Downloading and testing... Do not see a readme yet but considering the short time since the bug discovery and the quick new .5 release I expect this will come in a few days.

    When you have timecode generator on sequence, and it isn't rendered, when you do a mixdown the timecode field just says n.a. on the mixdown, you need to render it first, then mixdown.

    I think I saw this was a bug a few point releases back, was hoping it would be fixed on this one, but unfortunately not. Sad
