    Re: MC/SN 5.5.3.6 Patch File NOW AVAILABLE

    I see a bug in MC 5.5.3.6

    1) Create a new sequence in 720P 59.94 project

    2) Launch a title tool like you are going to make a title

    3) Type a couple letters into the title tool like "ABCD"

    4) Try to change the color of that text to black in the title tool

    5) Try to change the color back to white or any other color, it won't let you, it'll stay stuck on black

     

    This is on MC 5.5.3.6 on 10.6.8 OSX

    This bug is showing up on all of our systems as well.  We're a 1080 23.976 project.  Anyone know if they're working on it - should we downgrade back to 5.5.3.5?

    Re: MC/SN 5.5.3.6 Patch File NOW AVAILABLE

    I am currently running MC5.5 on a MBP and will soon be transfering to an iMac with no optical drive. I'll need to install this patch as well at some point. What's the best way to get 5.5 running on the new machine?

    Can this even be done or do I need to upgrade to 6.5?

    I'm on to v6.5 so I don't know if the color picker issue is still a problem or not in v5.5.3.6, but the workaround was to use Apple's Color Picker, which did work.  It's a bit of a pain, but not debilitating.

    I did this and it worked, however...

    Please note for future late 2012 27" iMac Fusion Drive users, you will get the follwoing error message: "No media can be written to any mounted drive. Please check permissions" if you attempt to use the internal fusion drive to store your media. You will need to use an external hard drive for your footage to import and mount. Once I pointed Avid to my external hard drive, everything worked well on Moutain Lion. Thanks all.

    Fix is in the Avid kb however recommendations are to never store media on your internal ( boot ) drive.

    Agreed, I just hadn't encountered that error message before on other rigs.

    I highly reccommend this model iMac for editing with Avid, Resolve or Premiere. Whatever you throw at it, handles it like a boss.

    Thanks for the heads up, me myself are waiting for them to release something that can replace my 17 " MBP.

    Apple seem to have cancelled out that line however so maybe next mobile one will become a PC lap and. if so, I´ll take a very close look at your tip, that is, if that new MacPro won´t all of a sudden against all odds finally show up ..

    Re: MC/SN 5.5.3.6 Patch File NOW AVAILABLE

    Does anyone know if this patch addresses errors with EDL Manager ?

    I'm getting these errors on complex timelines. Please see links to screen shots:

    http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8509/8518144782_325bb8d668_b.jpg

    http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8231/8517539324_180e364762_b.jpg

    http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8510/8516425261_8cb753a6d2_o.png

    It's only on this one particular timeline that this error is occuring, but not other sequences in the project. 

    Does anyone know how to find where the problematic clip(s) or effect(s) could be?

    If this is indeed something that can be solved by a patch, I'd really appreciate some help understanding how the patches work. I'm new to Avid, and an assistant. Do I have to Uninstall Avid and then install the download patch? I've never don't anything like this so I really need some direction.

    Thanks.

    Nahbi:

    If you are on a Mac, each "patch" is actually the same as a full version install, requiring that you uninstall the current version first, using the uninstaller file in the applications folder.

    If you are on a PC, the main version is installed, like 6.5.0, then the patch file is applied on top of it, like 6.5.2. Any previous patches for the main version need to be removed first before the latest patch is installed. All patches are cumulative, meaning you need only install the latest one to get all of the fixes from previous patch files.
