    Re: Media Composer 2018.4 Released and FAQ

    That's what I did wrong.  I had saved it to a "Downloads" folder on my desktop.   When I extracted directly to the "C" drive I did not get the error and I have all 18,051 files.

    Is this something new?
    Doubtful.  More likely to allow simplification or unified install instructions.

    UPDATE: I installed the latest version of MC without first uninstalling the old version and everything went okay.

    Terry,

    I love your pup.  Great choice.  Most of us would be intimidated to speak in the presence of a "Genius"

    Thanks, Denny.  I had forgotten the link was still up.  Sadly, I lost him a little while ago...he's now romping across the clouds with an endless supply of dog biscuits.    His corner in the editing room is so empty...  Looking to get a new assistant this Spring.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.4 Released and FAQ

    Hello Marianna ,

    I have one question about the subscription. The Media COmposer FAQ for 2018 states that a subsribtion cannot be used on more than one computer.

    Does that mean a user can longer sign out of thier system at work and sign in on their system at home? IOW, the soiftware is only being used on one system at a time.

    Hi, Marianna!

    Question about a smooth transition if I choose to abandon my current $50/mo subscription (annual is up in December).  Since I'm an independent as a hobby and do not collaborate, the $20/plan suits my needs.  If I let this expire without renewal, will I have a difficult process immediately buying the annual $20/mo subscription?  Or will the new subscription be seamless under my current Avid membership?

    No. Nothing changes. You can only activate the subscription on one system at any time.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.4 Released and FAQ

    Tried the new Alpha RLE Compression feature on 2018.4 which worked well and created sequence and exported.

    then I closed Avid and opened again and now I get an error message ALPHA RLE COMPRESSION NOT RECOGNIZED which causes media composer to hang and crash.

    Any suggestions as to how to get back in without going and finding the media and deleting it please ?

    Still can't get the new RLE Compression feature to work on any of the numerous media composers we have.

    It always says its not a recognized compression when going back in to projects. ?

    No you can still activate and deactivate and move it around - that means that you cant install and activate on more than one at a time!

    Marianna: I installed 2018.4 (and AppMan 2018.4.3) - on launch it says "released past your contract exp date..." (which is 12/2/2018). Do I need a versioner for my dongle? If so, where do I get it? Do not see any reference to it. NOTE: Perpetual license on PC.

    My apologies for missing this one....   Subscriotions and perpetuals can be used on more than one computer as long as they are ONLY activated on one at a time.

    Ronn

    Each year you have to "phone home" so to speak and let the server, MY Avid and dongle or sw licening server KNOW you updated.  If yo have a dongle, then you need to blast it.  SW licensing - deactivate then reactivate.

    Hope all is well...

    Re: Media Composer 2018.4 Released and FAQ

    Hi, I'm using MC 2018.4 and all was well until this morning, when, suddenly MC refused to play anything but the stereo track on my timeline.  We're finishing up a film with multiple audio tracks that were all playing fine on Friday. Tried another simpler project with a single auido track. Won't play. The Mixer shows there is audio on the track/s in both cases.  Any idea what is going on here?
