    Re: MC 2019.7 now available

    This has happened to me before with an upgrade, and again is happening with 2019.7   

    When I import an AAF with closed captioning data, the data media shows "offline".   I've noticed this when a major upgrade has happened before.  Is this a bug experienced by anyone else?


    Thanks so much.

    Looks like there is a 2019.8 available. Weird that those major updates no longer get posted here - the info is on the PC side of the forum.

    Re: MC 2019.7 now available

    using 2019.8.0 but still has the same problem.  I can import the AAF (or it seems) into the bin.  Yet when i use the inspector, it says D1 Offline.  When I edit this file into the sequence, it is RED, and is Media Offline.  Naturally the captions don't work.  

    Interesting that when I open a project made in 2018 (with media still available on my drives), and the AAF caption file is in that 2018 project, 2019 recognizes it and plays the D1 caption file back properly.  I just can't import a new AAF caption file into 2019.

    So I submitted a case, but all I see is that the case is in a que.  So for the time being, gone back to 2018, but sure would like to try 2019, as the interface looks nice to me.
