    Re: Media Composer 2020.4

    Philo Calhoun:

    No. I have quick time installed now and in past and link or import does not work. You can't manually reimport or link either.

    Philo Calhoun:

    I always liked Avid Media Composer for its stability and ability to open older projects. I'm hoping Avid will release a fix allowing link or importing of H264 files in at least some wrapper. Meanwhile, it looks like the only option is to open older projects with offline footage and to use some other program to transcode the footage to some codec that Avid will import.

    This is not a limitation in MC 2020.x. Something is wrong on your system.

    Maybe I don't understand the problem, but based on your description and the documentation of how the UME/QuickTime linking behavior is supposed to work, it seems like something is not working the way it is supposed to.

    I haven't found it in the Read Me file - but is there a way to export Same as Source in this new build?

    Re: Media Composer 2020.4

    I had similar problem... Have you tried simply renaming the MXF folder in your Avid MediaFiles to UME? Then I found that simply opening the Media Tool suddenly reconnected everything.

    Re: Media Composer 2020.4

    Unfortunately that did not work with me. It seems any previous AMA link that used quicktime will not relink with UME either through the relink menu or the right mouse click>relink to file command. I have to create a new link with the same file and then overwrite this clip onto the timeline. UME also is much pickier than quicktime on files, and some require re-saving in photoshop or Davinci Resolve.

    Re: Media Composer 2020.4

    My MC 2020.4 is crashing during the log in.

    The only clue I have is that it seems to be hanging up while this is on the screen:

    Initializing plug-in: nablet_MVP_MVP_MSP_XAVC_XDCAM.avx

     

    Note: I do have OS 10.15.4

    I have also turned off background services as indictaed in the README.

    What have I missed?

    Re: Media Composer 2020.4

    Ahhh.... bingo. Looks like they sent out an email on Jan 25th, that I either missed or ignored. Specifically says there's a fix for Catalina.

    Works now.

     

    Thank you!

    Re: Media Composer 2020.4

    I hope it can be useful: it is a short tutorial I made to show how to relink via UME. I tested it on Mojave (with h264 media) but it should work on Catalina. The difference should be that on Catalina you have to relink offline media. If you are on Mojave your media are not offline but are linked via old AMA QT engine.

    Hope it helps!
