    Re: Media Composer v2019.6 -- NOW AVAILABLE -- w/new UI

    That was on my home computer. Now, at work, with a different Mac and a different NewBlue account, I get the same error:

    Unable to activate because of failure to communicate with AvidELF.

    These problems have magically gone away after a couple of days on both systems. Weird.

    I've realised the smart tools on the timeline have gone the way of the dodo, so I've had to remap them to (a vastly decreased amount of) mappable buttons...

    They are common buttons now. Segment and trim tools with right-click options. By default you should find them above the timeline.

    The Smart Segment and Trim Tools are accessed by a right-click. Transition effect adjustment seems to be on by default. Make sure you create entirely new user settings and also trash the old site setting file or you may not see the correct UI.

    Thanks for this - turns out I havent been seeing the correct UI and had to map these myself manually.. Didn't realise we had to trash all our old settings and start from scratch *sigh*

    And (on squinting at the new UI), the button to toggle transition effect adjustment is right there in the Timeline Toolbar. With the very limited highlight colours in this version it is very difficult to tell which button is highlighted.

    Hi,

    Still the problems are not solved with the Subcap font styling. In 8.9.4 this works fine. In the latest version the settings react completely different. The space between the letters is to big for example when using helvetica neue 67 (standard broadcast subtitle font). Can you please add support for letterspacing in the next release so we can control the font in any way.

    Can you email me this info and your System ID please so I can get a case started and a bug logged.

    Re: Media Composer v2019.6 -- NOW AVAILABLE -- w/new UI

    Is anyone else having an issue in the new UI where both source and timeline windows are blank black screens on first load of Edit workspace in a project? Switching to Colour workspace brings everything back up and then switching back to Edit it's good to go. Not a huge issue but a little annoying...

    Re: Media Composer v2019.6 -- NOW AVAILABLE -- w/new UI

    Hello Mikej,

      You must create a new user. Select File > Settings, click the User tab and create a new User Profile after upgrading to the latest MC, What OS version do you use?

     

     

     

    Thanks,
