  • Re: Length difference of MC timeline and export

    When I look at your screen shot, I see a colon separator in the Master Timecode window. This indicates non-drop frame time code, which will not be time accurate. In the bin with the sequence, modify the start time code of the sequence so that it shows a semicolon, rather than a colon. This should force it to drop-frame time code, which should give you

  • Re: Length difference of MC timeline and export

    Since the separator in your time code is a colon, rather than a semi-colon, it indicates non-drop frame time code. This is a confusing relic of the past, but suffice it to say that changing the timeline to drop-frame time code (by making the separator a semi-colon), your timeline time should then be accurate to actual time. Go to the bin with your sequence

    The new update, 2018.12.1, solved the issue for me. The sequences/projects affected are no longer having the problem. Tim..

    Same problem. OS 10.14.2. iMac Retina 5k, 27-inch, late 2015. I was able to work around by clicking Debugger several times. I had to fix a few edits, so many cycles of the Debugger button got me through it enough to re-output with the fixes and finish the project. I tried making a new project with 2018.12 and editing the existing tracks of the sequence

  • Re: Multigrouping Avid 2018 without Pluraleyes

    If Premiere is allowing you to create the synched tracks, but you wamt to multicam in Avid, you can always sync in Premiere, then output the entire 1 hour track as a "same as source." Then just bring in the 5 1hour clips and multigroup those for your edit. Waveform synching can be a bit sloppy (a few frames either way is common). i do a lot

  • Re: Media Composer 2018.4 Released and FAQ

    Hi Mariana. Would also like to know about the educational version (for faculty). I currently have the educational version with Symphony included. I also have Script Sync and Phrasefind options. What will happen with the educational version?

  • Re: Apple ProRes

    I thought the same thing about the "double" export years ago when I first started doing it. I do a lot of 1-hour shows with mixed ProRes and DNx files. In my exprience, it is faster to do a video mixdown of the entire program to ProRes, cut it onto a new video track, then export same as source, than it is to simply export to ProRes Quicktime

  • Re: Best XDCAM XAVC WORKFLOW

    My workflow is to edit, either AMA if I am doing a doc with fewer tracks and lots of footage, or transcode if I am doing multicam or lots of effects, then do a video mixdown to the resolution/format to which I will be delivering. For example, I shoot on XAVC, transcode or edit AMA, then do a video mixdown to ProRes, since that is a common delivery format

  • Re: Color Correction Error

    There are many apects that seem to be different problems, but when you get the "color correction can't be added to filler" error, it might be because you have a track selected that does not have a video clip on that frame of the timeline where you are applying the color correction. In other words, if you have three video tracks with clips

  • Re: GoPro 6 and HEVC

    If you are doing much transcoding, check out EditReady. I'll often use the rewrap function when transferring XAVC-S or GoPro files to my Raid drive (straight from my original). It takes about the same amount of time as simply copying the files, and it seems to clear up a lot of hiccups that seem to plague the more consumer-based formats. Since I
