    Media Composer v2018.11 -- NOW AVAILABLE

    Avid is pleased to announce the latest release of Media Composer v2018.11 on November 20th, 2018. The software is available through My Avid, Avid Application Manager, or the Download Center (login and password required). You must have a current Support & Upgrade plan to run the latest software.

    + OS SUPPORT:
    This release adds support for macOS 10.14.1 (Mojave), while including macOS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) as well as 10.12.6 (Sierra), and 10.11.6 (El Capitan).

     

    + NEW FEATURES:
    - DNxUncompressed is available at any ratser dimension (HD, 2K, UHD, etc).
    - Show Four-Frame Display is now OFF by default.

     

    + MOJAVE USERS:
    Please note you may experience a significant delay in trying to install the application the first time, and the Finder may hang. Allow the process to complete after several minutes and you should be able to install successfully.

     

    + NITRIS DX/MOJO DX USERS:
    Please note the DX driver is NOT automatically selected in the install process.
    Within the MC installer, when you get to Installation Type, be sure to select the Avid DX Driver under Media Composer Editing Application.

     

    + BUG FIXES:
    This release addresses 16 bugs since the last release, including:

    - In some instances, the editing application would crash if you were trimming with the mouse and Caps Lock was on
    - Audio might not have played back if you were in trim mode and pitch correction was enabled
    - In some instances, exporting a QT Reference file with AIFF-C audio would crash Media Composer




    + FOR MORE INFORMATION:
    See the ReadMe or What's New documents published on the Knowledge Base prior to upgrading if you have any questions.

    If you have general issues with installing or running the release, post them here. If you think you have found additional bugs, please start a new thread.

    Installed 2018.11 and MC crashed on opening a project.

    Downgraded back to 2018.9 and everything went smoothly.

    I don't use 2018.10 because there's a bug with Caps lock and trimming.

    2018.11 resolves the trim/caps lock bug.

    Did you uninstall the software or did you use App Manager to update?

    Just a few thoughts 

    I have installed the new version on Mojave. It seems stable. No crashes so far.. not using all feature obviously, so not sure about bugs. The way I'm setup it works fine. Enjoying the live timeline. Not sure why that took so long...  So far so good... it's slower to open and when it auto saves - slighty annoying. Close down is also slower.

    someone said earlier . make a version with all bugs fixed before adding new features. I so agree with that.

    Re: Media Composer v2018.11 -- NOW AVAILABLE

    I've just run into a reoccuring issue with 2018.11.  I'm cutting on a sequence with only one audio track in the timeline and no video.  A couple of minutes into cutting with caps lock on for audio scrubbing and I get the spinny beach ball that never goes away.  I have to force quit.  This only is an issue if I have hardware enabled.  Once I disable it I can work fine.

     

    Here is my system info:

    Re: Media Composer v2018.11 -- NOW AVAILABLE

    When adding multiple Audio keyframes to clips on one track I can not anylonger select a single keyframe, all is selected automatically. I have not experienced this in previous version.

    Or am I doing something wrong?

    Regards
