    MEDIA COMPOSER 2019.12.1 AVAILABLE TODAY 4 MAY 2020

    Today, May 4, 2020 at 12:00 noon ET, we launched a new Media Composer Long Stream Maintenance Release - Media Composer v2019.12.1.  

     

    Location at Launch:  Media Composer v2019.12.1 (Mac and PC) is available on the Download Center at launch.  

     

    ReadMe:  Media Composer 2019 Documentation Page 

     

    IMPORTANT INSTALLER INFO (Windows) Only a patch installer is provided for Media Composer v2019.12.1. You must have v2019.12 already installed. Then use the 2019.12.1 patch to update to v2019.12.1. 

     

    • Bug Number: MCCET-3332. AAF exports from Media Composer v2018.12.8 and v2019.9 did not import into Pro Tools.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3403. If you had many bins and at least one folder, the Sidebar and Project window bin list scrolled to the top when you closed a bin.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3451. The AudioSuite Vari-Fi effect was not working correctly.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3442. The AudioSuite Reverse effect was not working correctly.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3316. When working with the SubCap effect, the Outline Weight behaved differently in Media Composer v2018.x and above (the space between the letters became larger) compared to Media Composer v8.x. In order to fix this, the Outline Weight includes two options to choose from: Basic Outline and Basic Outline (extra spacing.)
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3448. You might have received “Assertion failed” errors and audio channels offline when opening a sequence restored from archive.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3421. In some instances, the bin would hang or crash when trying to open the bin.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3414. In some instances, you might have seen banding issues after rendering or performing video mixdowns.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3279. A new setting has been added to Trim Settings. The “Sync Rollers at Position In Filler” puts sync rollers at the blue bar in filler just like non-filler. This makes sure markers in filler will stay in sync with other tracks as they are trimmed. This option is defaulted off.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3233. If there was filler between segments, jumping to specific timecode did not work properly.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3482. When working with Dynamic Relink, if relink was set to Highest Quality and you do not have access to the drive containing the highest quality media, you received a “cannot find file requested” error message rather than remain linked to the lower resolution media.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3115. In some instances, Import and Export Options windows were unresponsive.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3069. (NRCS Tool) You might have experienced issues on your first attempt at scrolling down and clicking at the bottom of the Story Panel.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3439. If Run Length Endcoded (RLE) was enabled in the Import Setting, you might have received errors or a system hang when importing MOV files.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3487. Assigned local clip colors changed to default when the volume was adjusted.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3461. Audio frames might have been missing after performing a mixed down or an export.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3553. The editing application would sometimes crash when switching between bin layouts.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3564. When XAVC files were linked when Dynamic Relink was enabled, that Data track displays as Media Offline.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3329. With certain keystroke combinations you might have experienced behavior such as slow motion frames or K not stopping playback.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3434. There was no audio when linking and importing .mts and .m2ts files on Media Composer v2019.12.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3485. Media checked into Interplay as XAVC I CBG Class 100, was checked out in new project as AVC-Intra 100.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3455. Dynamic Relink will now properly relink to either XAVC 100 or XAVC HD Intra CBG Class 100.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3537. Saving a new workspace with single monitor selected, switches back to dual monitor unless you re-save the workspace.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3562. Media Composer crashed to BreakPad during Send To Playback if background check in was enabled.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3545. Duplicate shortcut (Ctrl+D) was not working in Script View.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3307. When working in the Color Workspace, user interface responsiveness was slower in the Effects Editor window than in the Color Correction window.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3227. Media Creation Settings were not retained when added to Site Settings.
    • Bug Number: MCCET- 3427. In some instances, when performing a Send to Playback, even if the Minimum Resolution warning threshold was enabled in the Transfer Settings, the warning did not appear if the Timeline contained proxy resolutions.
    • Bug Number: MCCET-3436. Remapped keyboard shortcuts did not work when Bin Container Sidebar was the active window.

    What's the purpose of maintaining Long Stream Maintenance Releases for 2019.12.x when it's natural update is 2020.4? Surely as it's the new interface? Is it not confusing? Do both these Long Stream Maintenance Releases (2018 & 2019) include the new DNxH codecs?

    It's the last version that will work on Windows 7. That might be important for some people.

    As I understand it now, the main reason is for support on pre Catalina Mac and 32bit Quicktime compatibility. I doubt Windows 7 is the main reason Mtahir since Microsoft are ending support for that next January. It's more like users on Win 7 would be assumed to continue with 2018.

    I'm on Windows 7 at the moment as I build my Windows 10 paritition. I'm currently using 2019.12.1. I would have installed 2020.4.

    I did ask if it could be installed on Windows 7, assuming it wouldn't be supported if a user ran into problems, but I never got a reply. I don't know whether it's using something specific to Windows 10 or it hasn't been tested on Windows 7 and therefore isn't supported.

    Windows 7 and 8 is no longer supported - any longer..... so 2020.4 is a no go.   ReadMe doc's are always a good bet to inform.

    2020.4 -Windows v10 64-bit v1809 or later (Professional and Enterprise).

    Thanks for the info. I did read the docs. I was just curious as to whether it was simply untested on Windows 7 and therefore not supported, or if it relied on something specific in Windows 10 to operate correctly.

    I remember with DaVinci Resolve 14, I believe, which was Windows 10 only, you could install it on Windows 7 but H264 export failed. The explanation was it was using something specific in Windows 10.
