    Bug in windows.  If I control A to select all clips in bin, then right click, all the other clips are de-selected.

    work around is to not right click, and use clip in menu instead.

    not the case on my system, but related to this:

    It's still a bug and should get fixed, but yeah there are workarounds.

    What type of file is it?

    Can you link to it? If you can link and transcode the result is the same as importing, but faster.

    It's an Apple Pro Res 4444 file with a matte key - a keyable graphic (like a lower third)

     

    I can link to it, that works but I can't transcode it - it won't let me do that because it has a matte attached to it.

    Re: MEDIA COMPOSER 2020.4 NOW AVAILABLE 27 APR 2020

    Would like to see a version that saves the UI layout across multiple screens (all set to same resolution). Tested on multiple systems with multi screens, upon each launch media composer will only load to one screen. Tried many times to save workspaces and check/de-check the host panels. The only way media composer remembers the UI layout is if every panel is undocked like the old media composer. This issue is currently happening on all 2019 versions and the new 2020 version. Very annoying. Please fix. It would be really nice if everytime we opened media composer the user doesn't have to reconfigure the UI because media composer doesn't remember "oh yeah there's 3 or 4 monitors". It's a pain in the ass actually, like everytime we launch media composer we have to reconfigure the UI!? I love media composer and do like the new UI but good grief, please fix the silly nonsense with the UI on launch. Other than that, liking all the updates on this version so far.

    Not seeing that here on a three monitor setup. Are Your screens configured as left to right starting from # 1 in the Windows control panel?

    Re: MEDIA COMPOSER 2020.4 NOW AVAILABLE 27 APR 2020

    Thank you, however yes the screens are configured in the way you described. I believe the reason your setup saves across 3 screens is because windows like the timeline/composer/timecode etc are undocked from the main UI panel. If the minus, enlarge, close app icons are not in the top right corner of your third screen but are in the top right of your first screen then that is the case. What I'm trying to do is span the main UI over all four screens then dock everything within, which works great until I relaunch and then have to reconfigure again. The reason I don't work the other way is because I really dont enjoy bins and panels going behind one another anymore since we have four screens worth of real estate. But thank you for helping, I'd really like to see this issue resolved and was hoping we had something configured wrong but so far that hasn't been the case.

    Potential Bug with Version 2020.4

    In a bin with multiple items if a person selects them all (Ctrl+A) or selects more than 1 then right clicks on either the color column (to quickly organize by color) or right clicks the column which indicates with an icon whether the file is a sequence, linked media, transcoded media, fx etc... all media/sequences/fx/etc in that bin will deselect other than the one the mouse pointer was hovering over.

    To my knowledge if a person wants to change the color for instance it will have to be done on an individual basis with version 2020.4. I say this is a potential bug so others can check on their systems. I simply rolled back to V2019.12 and the problem went away leading me to believe it is likely a bug. If anyone else checks this on their V2020.4 I'd appreciate it if they would confirm or unconfirm it being an issue on their system. Just remember to right click on either the color column or media icon column not the name column (that seems to work properly and keep all items in bin selected) Thank you.
