    Wow, I just found a bug inside the first 2 minutes of working with 2019.9 - Effects Fade doesn't work with alpha channel elements in the timeline. When I select my alpha element in the timeline click on Effects Fade, I get a message: "The Effect doesn't allow the fade"

    Update: I did a full uninstall and had to manually delete a series of folders from the C: drive. Then I re-installed 2019.9.  I also Imported my user settings rather than copying them in the folder.

    This issue persists.

    Marianna,


    I have opened a Case : 03795340 - I have a quicktime alpha element (lower 3rd) in a 1080p 29.97 timeline. I click on my Effects Fade button when it happens. I can add dissovles. I can adjust keyframes. But the effect button doesn't work.

    Bug #2 - The Audio waveform in your timeline will disappear after an edit with a dissolve. If you have a same track (add edit) dissolve that ENDs at the cut, all the Audio Waveform data disappears from the rest of your timeline. If you add a dissolve that STARTs at the cut, then the Audio data does NOT disappear. All I am doing is adjusting volume.

    This is case #03795520

    Update: I did a full uninstall and had to manually delete a series of folders from the C: drive. Then I re-installed 2019.9. This issue seems to have gone away. I also Imported my user settings rather than copying them in the folder.

    Marc

    There is a 3rd smaller bug I am not reporting yet. It has to do with a button icon sticking to your timline slots even when you did not program it or actively remove it with the Command Palette. (This bug is still around).

    Bug #3 - You cannot add a dissolve to the end of a master clip. You have to add one at the front, then you can add it at the back. If it is at the very end of your timeline, you can add a center dissolve and then change it to end at the edit. In order to get a dissolve at the end of a clip, I have to be one frame AFTER the clip to add it. The "sensing" of where a dissolve would go at an edit point has disappeared and you must be exact to get the dissolve to appear. Otherwise, Avid "dings" at you until you get it to stick.

    Edit: You cannot add a dissolve ANYWHERE unless you are AFTER the edit point, but not BEFORE it.

    Case #03795648

    If AMA prores clips are grouped together and put in a timeline and the clip's audio waveform is shown, Avid intermittently displays a crash error. Clicking cancel or send report allows you to continue to work until it crashes again.

    Turning off the waveforms stops the crashing.

    Re: MEDIA COMPOSER 2019.9 AVAILABLE TODAY 30 SEPTEMBER 2019

    I'm having a new issue with MC 2019.9 on Windows 10:

    When doing a OP1a MXF or Quicktime DNxHD 145 output, my VO track gets truncated by about two seconds at the head. The audio underneath is okay. My sequence is fairly simple with only 6 total audio tracks.

    Doing an audio mixdown results in the same truncated audio.

    I've tried two different projects and both had the VO trucated, but if I output the same sequence with MC 2019.7, the audio exports intact.

    Systems tested are HP Z840s with 32 GB RAM.

    Thank you, Marianna. 

    I've just exported the same sequence on MC 2019.9 on MacOS 10.14.6 and it came out fine, so this issue could to be specific to Windows version.

    Not sure if a bug or a "feature" in 2019.9
    In SubCap generator, when you first load the settings, if you single click the opacity of the subtitle box, the icon(dot) turns pink you type the number and that number is put into the caption, and the opacity doesnt change. If you double click the icon(dot) you can then type your number and it changes the value. After that initial double click, just a single click allows the value change again.
