    Title tool positioning shifts from Media Composer to Symphony

    When passing chyron titles from offline to online, the text shifts. In Avid Media Composer offline, 2-line texts (top and bottom) lined up perfectly vertically, but when we bring it to online (symphony), the texts shift slightly and no longer line up. Since we have hundreds of titles that have to be re-created, it wastes hours of online time to fix each title.

    Both systems are PC xw8600s. In offline, we create titles at 10:1m in a SD project, in Online, we recreate them in a 1920x1080i HD project. In symphony, the titles look lined up when opened in the title tool, but when saved they shift so that they are no longer lined up vertically. Perhaps this is simply a symphony issue?

    We didn't have this problem before we upgraded from Avid 3.0.5 to Avid 4.05 for both Media Composer and symphony.

    Thanks,

    Kent

    This is a running bug that comes and goes.

     

    The question is, does anyone else still see this in 5?

    Is there a workaround for users who cannot upgrade for a while?

    Thanks,

    Yes, plus I would normally fix this kind of problem by using a text w/o source file in a bin and ctrl+double click to apply it to multiple text clips simultaneously.  Now when I ctrl+double click it brings up the text editor.  Is there a new way to apply the text attributes to multiple clips?
