    Re: Media Composer 2020.8 Available Now - 25 Aug 2020

    I installed MC 2020.8 this afternoon.  Upgrading from  MC 2018.12. 

    There are a couple of things I can't find. 

    1)  2020.6 included (I think) export to mp4.  I can't find it anywhere in 2020.8.

    2)  Effects pallate can be opened in the "tools" dropdown.  But the Control-B command isn't functional.

    3)  Title + doesn't open on the button or on the pulldown. 

    I'm sure I'll find a few more things as I work through it.

    there's mp4 within a mov container

    that's CTRL-8

    Thanks for the help with mp4.  Sorry for typo.  Sometimes a B looks like an 8.  Especialy after a long day.
