    The cursor bug I reported for 2018.12.4 (after a few commands the cursor does not change to smart tool cursors) is still there...

    Ramster92, I noticed this in 12.4 but didn't have time to report it. I also opened a case for the same thing in 2018.12.5. It happens after you render a few times. The mouse cursor no longer changes from the computer default no matter what tool you are using. You must restart the application to get it to come back. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

    The patch did not install. I got an error message 

    "Database: Transformation: One line is not available and cannot be updated. Table: RemoveFile"

    I uninstalled MC2018.12.3 and re-installed it, however, the patch still creates the same error.

     

    Why do we not get a full installer?

    Posted this on the 2018.12.4 thread, is still relevant for .5:

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

    This is MCCET-3004. Caused by installation of 2018.12.3 on non-English system locale.

     

    WORKAROUND:

    Switch to the English locale and reinstall MC 2018.12.3, then apply the 2018.12.5 patch.

    I followed your proposal, and made the english version as override version. I made a fresh installation of MC 2018.12.3, checked the content in the file International\xml, and run the patch Update 2018.12.5 with no success. I still get the samde error.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.12.5 AVAILABLE 14 May 2019

    Hi all,

    I have found something weird in 2018.12.5.

    I am trying to export a timeline of 47,5 minutes to SD H264. On all the machines that I just had updated to 2018.12.5 I get a error: Exception: Sequence too long.

    So I tested it on one machine that still had my previous version, 8.8.5, same H264 SD export settings. And that just works without getting any exception error.

    In 2018.12.5 I tried to make a audio mixdown on that same sequence and also Exception too long sequence errors.

    Is this a bug? Does anyone else has these kind of problems? This is strange behaviour.

     

    update

    I have narrowed down my problem. This probleem seems to be groups related. After doing a commit multicam edit I could make mixdown and export again. However I am afraid to use commit multicam after a bug I found on 8.8.5. In that version, if you do a commit multicam edit on a grouped clip that has timewarp effect on it it randomly picks a other shot that is in your project. 

    So the solution is: if you run into this problem. Do commit multicam edit before export. Be sure to check if your grouped clips still match with the original sequence to make sure the bug I described above has been solved.
