    Media Composer 2018.12.7 Available 8.8.19

    Media Composer 2018.12.7 Avialable 8.8.19

    As part of Avid’s Long Term Maintenance Release commitment, Media Composer 2018.12.7 launched today, Thursday August 8. 2019.

    Location at Launch: The Updates to Media Composer 2018.12.7 ( Mac and Win ) is available from the Avid Download Center (login and password required) only. The Download Center is accessible via the MyAvid Master Account.

    Status of Support Plan:  The ability to launch this Media Composer 2018.12.7 software is dependent on the status of your Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released.  

    Changed in Media Composer 2018.12.7:  The following has changed with this release.

     -  Simplified Installer - A change has been made to the Installer to remove an install menu window. When you download Media Composer v2018.12.7, simply double-click Install Media Composer.exe to install Media Composer. 

    -  Open I/O NDI Plug-In - In previous releases, the Open NDI Plug-In was automatically installed when you installed Media Composer.  With this release, you have the option to install or not during the install process.  For details on this plug-in, see “Support for NewTek NDI Video over IP” in the Media Composer Help. 

    Fixes:  there are a lot of fixes in this release.   See attached ReadMe 

    Enjoy all of you on the old UI.

    Re: Media Composer 2018.12.7 Available 8.8.19


    it seems to be that 


      Bug Number: MCCET-3004. In the previous release, you could not use the patch installer if you were using a non-English locale.



    is not fixed with the new Open I/O NDI Plug-In Installer.

    I have some german friends on PC wich are getting an error. It roughly translates to

    The help string Open I/O NDI for the DlgTitle control in the EnterpriseAdminConfig dialog box does not contain a delimiter.

    I seems to be affecting the Full Installer also.

    I can't reproduce this on Mac but I thought I just pass on the information.

    This has happened to me before with an upgrade, and again is happening with 2019.7   

    When I import an AAF with closed captioning data, the data media shows "offline".   I've noticed this when a major upgrade has happened before.  Is this a bug experienced by anyone else?


    Thanks so much.

    We're still on 2018.5 as most versions after that added more bugs than fixes. Is there a general consensus on this latest version?
