    was it 4:2:2 10bit or 4:2:0 8 bit?

     

    the 4:2:2 10 bit is H265 - no go in avid as it doesn't recognize H265 (yet or ?...)

    the 4:2:0 8 bit is H264 - good to go

    Re: Media Composer 2019.12 Available - 23 Dec 2019

    Here is a bug on this version.  It was in the last versions too.

    If you have a bin with a bunch of clips and you write something in the comment column, you don't see the text updating as your're typing.  You only see the text you've written once you hit return.  This is on mac and pc.

    Thank You

    Not seeing this - is there a set of steps you could describe just in case I am misunderstanding?

    I think there is something misunderstanding.

    He gave me a material that was shot with a Canon Xf-705 camera.

    The codes are Canon X-HEVC, 3840x2160p50 with 4: 2: 2 sampling rate with MXF (OP1A) 152Mbps.

    MC 2019.2 can neither link nor import via Canon AMA 3.5.

    The Canon XF Utility, version 3.5 with the Canon X-HEVC 1.0 decoder, can be used to script nicely.

    I deduce from this that AVID MC 2019.12 is not suitable for cutting the material of a camera released more than a year ago. I think this is outrageous neglect by za AVID.

    What is the solution to this problem?

    Preliminary file conversion excluded!

    I hope I am well aware of my problem.

    Hi!

    The topic mentioned does not provide any solution to the problem, just a try. So there was no CANON XF-705 X-HEVC source material available. Do I still ask AVID experts if they haven't been able to find a workable solution in more than a year? So far, the collaboration between Canon and AVID has been exemplary in the coherence of product development. What can happen? Why do our users see the damage to their inertia?

    Enyedi,

    In that same thread that I pointed to, Powerfreak reports that it does work with the XF-705. He's not using the AMA plug-in from the Avid website, but one from the Canon website. Here's the link:

    Hi!

     

    The above link says it was supposed to work because they couldn't test it. They had no XF-705 Matter. I've also downloaded both the Utility and the Canon Media Access for AVID AMA plugin from Canon. version 3.5. Today I tried it on an HP z420 AVID certified workstation on MC2019.12 but still not working.

    I continue to ask that AVID and CANON do not resolve this issue together. so I don't want to use Edius for my work.

    Enyedi,

    Can you upload some Xf705 media for testing? Also, Powerefreak (in the other thread) had tested it and reported that it does work. What is your workflow for ingesting the Canon media?
