    Re: Media Composer 2018.8 released 8/13/18

    This version (2018.8) works for me, but some things don't work well:

    - Phrasefind is always searching the whole project, even if 'current bin' is selected. I always have to wade through a lot of irrelevant results which defeats the purpose. I wish I had the option to Phrasefind through just the current clip BTW.

    - Live Timeline always zooms out to a portion of the timeline that already has been played back. I wish it would at least center, or show me what's ahead.

    - In general this version is slowed down considerably by waveform display.

    - When opening Sift Bin Contents the current keyword is not selected anymore, unlike what happens with Find. This is a drag, because generally I want to be able to type a new keyword rightaway, without having to backspace-erase the old keyword.

    I look forward to the next version.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.8 released 8/13/18

    Hi!

    Finally got MC First 2018.8 up and running (was very happy that the case was opened and resolved), but now the blue playback position indicator freezes during playback - it doesn't matter whether in the composer (source window) or the timeline. I've linked to clips that are on a 12TB G-Raid. The media files ae also on the raid,  as well my project files. Does this have something to do with bug MCCET-2524? For several days all was fine then suddenly this started happening. Recently it was even impossible to pause the playback and I had to force quit the app.

    Does anyone know any solution(s) please? Thank you!

    Sus

    Grrrrr.

    MC 2018.8 was not working on OSX 10.10.5, it crashed.

     

    The "solution" for Avid is that 2018.9 is official NOT working below OSX 10.11..... When you try to install you get a warning about this and it jumps out of the installer.

     

    Not in the mood to fix this guys?

    2018.9 did not solve this issue.

    Its official not working now on OSX below El Capitain (10.11)

    The installer stops working after a warning that your OS is outdated.

    Not a nice "solution" because i dont need a big and bulky OSX on my laptop.

    OS 10.10.x was problematic so it was not on the 2018.8 or 2018.9 ReadMe as approved.  you need to go to 10.11 or higher.

    Sorry but thats what you need to do.
