    Media Composer | First 2018.7.1 (Mac Only) fix released today

    Media Composer | First 2018.7.1 (Mac Only) fix released today

    Avid is pleased to announce that we have resolved the issue reported by many Mac users on this forum relating to some issues with sluggishness on playback in Media Composer | First 2018.7. In some instances, it would take as much as 10 seconds between selecting “Play” and the start of video playback.   

    Yesterday (Thursday, July 19th, 2018) we released Media Composer | First 2018.7.1, which resolves this issue and tested it overnight.  Note: that this software update is a Mac-only update; there is no PC version of 2018.7.1 since PC users are not experiencing the problem.

    Launch Time:  We launched this release Media Composer | First 2018.7.1 (Mac Only) at 3:00 pm ET today.

    Mac OS:  This issue would only occur on Media Composer | First 2018.7 and Mac OS 10.13.4 and higher.

    Issue Resolved:

    • Bug Number: MCCET-2558. (Mac OS 10.13.4 and higher) In some instances, start of play would take approximately 10 seconds before playback began.

    ReadMe:  Attached

    Video Satellite: Do NOT update to this release if you use the Video Satellite feature with Pro Tools.

    How to obtain this release:  

    1.  Customers who have already installed the latest version of Media Composer| First 2018.7 (Mac) will be notified of the availability of the upgrade via the Application Manager. The Apps tab also provides a link to download and install the update when desired.
