    How to stop MC from updating my sequences...again

    This has probably been posted before, but is there any way of avoiding this? MC 5.0.3 seems to decide at random when it needs to make copies of my sequences for no reason, making a mess of my bins and housekeeping. Really annoying!

    MC 5.0.3 on Win 7 Pro 64bit

    I'm now on 5.0.3.7r and the problem seems less. I say less because I've still had an instance ysterday where MC wanted to duplicate a sequence. Under what circumstances would it want to do this?

    Re: How to stop MC from updating my sequences...again

    Did it try to duplicate a sequence that MC 5 had already duplicated before? Is this an old project started in a version of MC before MC5?

    The project was created in MC 5.0.3. It is the first copy that was made of the sequence (original sequence was being copied for the first time)

    Re: How to stop MC from updating my sequences...again

    I wonder which effect is being updated to 'Advanced keyframes'. There was a problem with the head/tail fade effect - perhaps that's the one being updated (again)?

    Where do you guys find the latest version of MC?

    Everytime I go into my download center I don't see 5.0.3.x I only see 5.0.3. Like this...

    Please don't hijack a thread - start a new one? To answer your question, patches are applied to full releases. The current full release is 5.0.3, the current patch for 5.0.3 is 5.0.3.7r. Patches are found in the patch download area. Full releases are found in the full release download area. The very first topic in this forum reads 'Looking for the latest patches?' - I'd start there.

    Goood luck.

    Re: How to stop MC from updating my sequences...again

    sorry about that. I din't think I was hijacking a thread.

    We are human beings and when we talk we pick up on things being said, comment and ask questions. It's just a natural thing I did no offence intended.

    Thanks.

    Re: How to stop MC from updating my sequences...again

    yeah might be the head/tail fade...I use that a lot. And the sequence was pre-5.0.3.7r

    Re: How to stop MC from updating my sequences...again

    I recall a defect one or two patches ago where they promoted the head/tail fade but removed the start/end keyframes. This has been fixed but the side effect of this may be that pre-existing head/tail fades need to be updated ;-)

    I'm just guessing.

    Cheers
