    Media Compposer 2019.11 available.

    Great news…….  a new November release of Media Composer has just launched.  
     
    Status of Support Plan: The ability to launch this Media Composer 2019.11 software is dependent on the status of a customer’s Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released - today November 18th, 2019.
     
    Location at Launch: Updates to Media Composer are available from Avid Link, MyAvid Master Account and the Avid Download Center (login and password required).
     
    What’s Changed in 2019.11:  The following has changed in Media Composer v2019.11.
     
    IMPORTANT: macOS Support

    - Media Composer v2019.11 does NOT currently support macOS v10.15 (Catalina).
     

    Drawing Shapes and Text with Titler+

    -  In previous releases, when working with shapes in Avid Titler+, drawing a shape displayed in the middle of the screen. You could then move the shape to the desired location. With this release, you can simply draw the shape at the desired location.  
    -  When creating text with Titler+, simply click and type. There is no need to draw a box first.
     
    Additional Support for XAVC HD Intra (CBG) Class Resolutions

    -  Additional XAVC HD Intra CBG resolutions are supported with this release. The following table lists the XAVC HD Intra CBG Class resolutions.  
     
    Note that XAVC HD Intra CBG Class 200 MXF is not supported for OP1a export or media creation. It is supported for OP-Atom media creation.

    I will agree that taking care of all the bugs first is more important than making it compatible to Catalina.

    Oh gawd, I downloaded Catalina on my Mom's iMac (she doesn't have Avid).  I was not aware that this new OS is buggy.

    Re: Media Compposer 2019.11 available.

    Well, 2019.11 is two steps forward, one step backward.

    Source and/or Record goes black after a while, there are already some reports about this.

    MC sometimes hangs at start up, for me it is during loading BCC.avx.

    Bins become unresponive after Transcode/Consolidate, after these sometimes you can't do anything in the bin. Selecting clips or sequences is grey instead of my chosen highlight color, closing with cmd+w is not possible, saving does not help, you have to close by clicking the x. After reopening everything is fine.

    Saved toolsets still get lost, I don't know how often I arranged my windows and tool but after a while the tool are gone again. For me it happens with the AudioTool, AudioSuite, EQs, TC-Window. I arrange them, so I habve them in sight and after a couple of days they are gone again.

     

    2019.11 is still better than the versions before but not quite perfect.

    Re: Media Compposer 2019.11 available.

    Been using 2019 for the past 48 hours and beginning to like it. When I use the "Find Bin" button, it automatically opens the bin in a new Bin Container. Is there a setting somewhere that forces the bin to open in the Bin Container which is already opened?
