    New avid online > offline workflow

    Hi all, 

    I'm looking to setup that cool online > offline workflow, where you can attach a masterclip with offline proxy media. 

    There should be a right click setting in media composer called "create proxies". 

    Does this feature work on standalone media composer enterprise licensed systems, or do you need a nexis system to deploy this workflow?

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe you need NEXIS | EDGE which requires Media Composer Enterprise and NEXIS Shared Storage.

    Hi Bob, 

    I'm a little confused now, I created a support case and the rep told me this: 

     

    Hi,

     

    Media Composer | Enterprise has the feature to create a proxy as a standalone.

    Did you try with an am Enterprise license?

     

    He mentioned it is possible to deploy this workflow without a NEXIS shared storage system.

    Correct. You need MC | Enterprise. You need Nexis Edge if you want to implement a proxy + remote workflow syncing.

    Re: New avid online > offline workflow

    And yea, it is incredibly poor decision by Avid to limit the proxy workflow to the Enterprise edition. I'm pretty sure 95% of users would love to use it and not just the 5% (or less) of the Enterprise license owners.

    Okay well this support rep was a bit of a redherring...

    He assured me that it would be possible to deploy the proxy online>offline one click workflow on a standalone media composer enterprise system, without a Nexis. 

    BTW... are Nexis and Nexis edge the same server?

    AFAIK, for the full remote cloud editing thing, you need Nexis, Enterprise plus some sort of server to share the proxies on.

    Yes, you can do proxy workflow without Nexis or Nexis Edge.

    You need Edge if you are doing proxy and remote workflow (the workflow demonstrated in Avid.com website).

    There are other remote workflows but the one that allows proxy creation/playback/download from remote workflow, that requires Edge.

     

    Nexis and Nexis Edge are two different servers.

    Edge runs on a Windows based server.

    Re: New avid online > offline workflow

    I see! 

    So to confirm... the proxy workflow where you simply attach a proxy file to a master clip is available in media composer enterprise standalone?

    How would I set that up?

    When I right click I don't see a create proxies option like outlined in one of avid's videos describing this workflow

    I think Philip that when you transcode a master clip to make a proxy Avid tracks the linkage and this gives you the option to later right click and select what media that master clip is working from. 

    This is just a simpler way of using the relink option.

    Yes it is a shame its not available to standard users but if you are working with a range of products at a range of cost points you will always have "must have" features not available in the lower cost products. Its inevitable.

    Hey Pat, 

    I was under the impression that creating a proxy clip attached to a masterclip required a different workflow. See this screenshot attached, where there is a create proxy option under right click. 

    I'm running Media Composer Enterprise Standalone, but I do not have that option in my menu

    Re: New avid online > offline workflow

    Hey all!

    So I got to the bottom of this. 

    You do not need a Nexis Edge server to deploy the new online > offline workflow. 

    You need Media Composer Enterprise to activate this proxy feature. 

    You need to be running the 2022.10 + (I was running an older version that did not support this feature)

    See screenshot attached. 

    HOW COOL IS THAT?  NO CONFORM!
