  • Re: Default Dissolves in Media Composer

    +1 this needs to be added to the list. I don't use the other transition types as it takes too long to select every time and when I do it is quite easy to miss one or two and have different crossfade types by accident as it always reverts back to "Dissolve" instead of the crossfade type I currently am using for the edit.
  • Re: Is My Computer Too Fast For Avid Media Composer

    I think the original point I was trying to make is to answer cls105's original question and that is, he was not sure if MC could use more than 14 cores (24 treads) and if cores over clocks is better and if having more core’s is currently useful in day to day use. My answer as an independent editor is yes as 20% of the time. I am using background

    I can't speak for the 2nd gen Threadrippers or the 32core with the funny memory layout but this is on a background transcode of Sony XAVC-L 50 10bit to Avid DNxL 365x 1080p50 If i do the same transcode in foreground then it is only 80-90% utilization. If I use the Nablet Plug in then its only 50% utilization. Also to note that your i9-7940 and mine

    @cls105 [quote user="cls105"]I am curious if media composer will use 18 cores.[/quote] It defitely uses 32 threads on Threadripper. I saw an avid demo of a duel 28 Xeon playback 8k in real time using all 56 cores at near max. I can't find the youtube video anymore but it was impressive. The Puget Systems 16 core recomendation is only partly

  • Re: Any way to have background trascoding continue while im playing my timeline?

    Hi On the background render icon in the timeline (the green circle) > Right Click and select “Open Background Services” > Deselect “Enable Pausing of Background Services” It is also a good idea to also deselect “Always Stop Avid Background Services Upon Exit” so that if you have transcoding jobs the application

  • Re: Export As: h.264 MP4 but NOT Quicktime

    The simple answer is export .mov and just change the file extension to .mp4 All the solutions previously discussed are also a good options. My workflow is to export .mxf same as source and then use that as master to create all export derivatives in Adobe media encoder with Voukoder HEVNC Plug in. The .mxf export is what is archived with the project

  • Re: Antimatte or Paint to create basic mask

    If you do not have the symphony mask option the “Spot Color Effect" under image in the effect’s pallet is your fastest and simplest option, Just Alt double click on the spot color effect and make your adjustments. I previously used paint but the render time on a single core was way long and I had to duplicate the clip and the existing

  • Re: Source Colour space for 10 bit stills

    Hi DStone I don’t think rec 2020 will work for now as yet there is still no way I can convert stills to rec 2020 or rec 709. I will just convert stills to sRGB. Its not too serious as the output is still 8bit 422. My projects and all the footage I receive from our camera’s is 10bit rec 709 though. I thought I was just missing something.

  • Re: Source Colour space for 10 bit stills

    [quote user="Joachim Claus"] Try the source color space setting: "Rec. 709 [video levels]". This will import colors without modification to video levels. Joachim [/quote] Hi Joachim This is the exact issue; Avid MC is not reading the colour space of the file as there is no source colour profile for the standard images except sRGB

  • Source Colour space for 10 bit stills

    Hi I am getting a colour shift when importing 16bit uncompressed .tiff files saved with either ProPhoto or Adobe RGB (1998) colour profiles and can't find a source colourspace in "Source Settings" The images are being exported from Capture One Pro. What is the best way to deal with it whithout going 8bit sRGB? Thanks
