    Bugs and issues with avid 2020.4

    Hi all Avid 2020.4 here are a few bugs that I'm encountered 

    1. Trying to batch transcode (with keep original frame rate) files and after a few transcodes I'm receiving this error message. i've changed from UME link to quick time, still did the same thing, opened a project with the same FPS still did it. Picture included. 

    Also it linked some files twice once in two different video links. 

    2. When i mark a few clips in the bin and try to right click the marks disappear and only one file is marked. the only time that it works is if I keep pressing the shift on my keyboard while I press the right click. 

    3. When i try to press on the color box and right click it doesn't give me the color but gives me the right click menu. Only when I press on another line in the bin and then return to the line it gives me the option.  

     

    If you haven't insights about this bugs and how it can be avoided.

    Re: Bugs and issues with avid 2020.4

    hi, same problems here and a lot more;

    your #1 is like https://community.avid.com/forums/t/199518.aspx on the mac forum, looks like a general problem with UME

    #2 same here - my workaround is mark all clips and use the top menu and not the right mouse button - or map the desired command a shortcut on the keyboard problem here now i dont have any keys left :/

    #3 i use clip color - but this only works for 1 clip cause i cant find a command for shortcut on keyboard

    for me other glitches in 2020.04:

    #4 cant import mp3 (!!!!!) i have to link them and consolidate. if i dont consolidate and cut with the linked mp3 during 2-3 hours working i cant set the volume.

    #5 cant link or import a lot of mp4s and movs now. maybe 8from 10 dont work. on my last 2018.10 setup fails 1 or 2 from 10 to import.

    #6 much more render time with some bcc2020 effects

    #7 not usable quick titler - i still use the marquee

    #8 coming from 2018.10 the floating bins are a mess

    #9 nice new mov exporter - but for me CBR export fails - the exported file has often a 30x9 ratio or something - VBR works fine

    Re: Bugs and issues with avid 2020.4

    Thank you for showing me that I'm not the only one that is experiencing these things. 

    The floating windows and the way they are disappearing is driving me nuts. 

    The mp3 bug i have to see, if that happens that's a major deal breaker for me to go back to the old version which worked fine.


    I hope they are going to treat these bugs.

    One thing you should do if going from 2018.x is to create a new user profile. Some of the window problems are related to the user profile.

    These two are known bugs. I saw a post somewhere (sorry that I don't remember if it was here or on Facebook) that they are fixed in the next update, which is supposed to come before the end of May 2020.

    Re: Bugs and issues with avid 2020.4

    The "Frames Get Stuck Inside Decoder" bug using UME on some Mp4's is still going on w/ 2020.5. I had trouble with this on a Catalina Mac w/ 2020.4 and am now having trouble with this on a Win 10 PC w/ 2020.5.

    Have to use the Source Browser and switch the Plugin to QT manually. This has worked so far on PC, but did not work on the Mac side.

    Hey there... I created a case so support can check this and see why 2020.4 and 2020.5 are having this issue with MP3 and mono.

    Re: Bugs and issues with avid 2020.4

    Thanks.


    The linked MP3 File is stereo:



    but audio mixer ignores the volume. you can set the level in the mixer but its still now difference. so you cant mix

     



    but u can consolidate the file. the consolidate window says 1of 2 but he is ready after 1 track.


    in the end the sound is left and right the same signal.
