    Import Issues MC 2020.5 with Catalina 10.15.5

    tdalauro - I just got a brand new MaBook Pro today and downloaded Avid 2020.5. Running on 10.15.5 Mac OS Catalina. I'm trying to import both MPEG - 4 H.264 files and Quicktime H.264 files and I can't link or import like I used to in older versions of Avid. Trying to do some reading now but if you have any suggestions on workflow or what I should use to convert and ingest the files I would greatly appreciate the feedback.

    There are many changes in Media Composer 2020 on Catalina. Start on page 3 of the What's New document for a list:

    "My God! What have I done?"    Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime

    This summarize very well my expression when yesterday I upgraded my MacBookPro with Mojave 10.14.6/AMC 2020.4, to Catalina 10.15.5/AMC 2020.5...

    No more mp4, mp3 and lot of other containers, all cannot be linked/transcoded or imported.

    Same files on 2020.5/Windows platform works fine.

    And... "Once in a lifetime..." I didn't backupped MacHD (with Bootcamp) before OS update.

    Need to find a way to turn back to Mojave.

    Reinstalled from scratch Mojave 10.14.6 and AMC 2020.5 with Media Composer Legacy Components 2020.4, my dear old but friendly Title Tool.

    All is back to normality, no more problems linking, transcoding and importing as in 10.15.5.

    I'll wait better times for Catalina.
