    MC 2019.11 Now Available!

    Great news…….  a new November release of Media Composer has just launched. 
     
    Status of Support Plan: The ability to launch this Media Composer 2019.11 software is dependent on the status of a customer’s Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released - today November 18th, 2019.
     
    Location at Launch: Updates to Media Composer are available from Avid Link, MyAvid Master Account and the Avid Download Center (login and password required).
     
    What’s Changed in 2019.11:  The following has changed in Media Composer v2019.11.
     
    IMPORTANT: macOS Support

    - Media Composer v2019.11 does NOT currently support macOS v10.15 (Catalina).
     

    Drawing Shapes and Text with Titler+

    -  In previous releases, when working with shapes in Avid Titler+, drawing a shape displayed in the middle of the screen. You could then move the shape to the desired location. With this release, you can simply draw the shape at the desired location. 
    -  When creating text with Titler+, simply click and type. There is no need to draw a box first.

    Did you try unpacking the .zip file from the root level of your C:\ drive?  ( C:\Media_Composer_2019.11_Win.zip)?

    Nice to see that avid STILL can't sort out AMA'ing H264 files correctly.
    There's still a 1 or 2 frame difference in duration when AMA'ing with avid generic plugin compared to quicktime plugin.

    Re: MC 2019.11 Now Available!

    I've asked before and I'll ask again, is there no way that 'new' updates or important Avid/MC posts can also be added to/copied to and pinned to the Mac forum? Appreciate different moderates etc., add to or respond to either the PC or Mac side of MC forum, but rarely did this use to be the case. Sorry for the rant and posting this on in the PC forum.

    Hey Ant....

    Got the engineers ear on this one....Do you have a recipe or a sample file perhaps?  If so, if nothing else, they can try your file and see if we can still repro...

    Marianna,

    I suspect AntCaladine's problem is the same one I have been corresponding about with support for MONTHS, and you may remember the threads/PMs.  I'm working in 2019.9 currently and thought a solution was just around the corner, last I was told anyway, so I checked this forum post.  The engineers need to understand that this ongoing Quicktime file linking issue is a BIG MESS to those of us who have to work with MP4's and such.  File support + accurate timecode is kinda essential in a professional video editing system.

    Just today I brought a project back online (originally cut in MC 2018.12.6) in which I had been so careful to not link any video assets with Avid Generic plugin. However I quickly discovered that some of my JPEGs were unintentionally linked with Avid Generic Plugin, and mysteriously, the files wouldn't link again even though there wasn't an obvious time code discrepancy in the bin.  Had to relink via QUICKTIME plugin in the source browser instead (because Avid Generic wouldn't even load these jpegs in the source monitor for some strange reason) then relink the original clips to those newly linked instances - so I found a path to get the job done.  But when deadlines are tight it's a big pain in the butt to have to fiddle with files that in any other version of MC would just - POOF - relink immediately and without fuss.

    Re: MC 2019.11 Now Available!

    Ive been manaully relinking timelines for months now - ever since Avid finally decided to fix the Canon AVC timecode probelm - where all the files came in with 00;00;00;00 TC. Of course after dozens of projects and I don't even know how long - at some point it got fixed.

    Try bringing those files back online thru AMA now - giant mess. Nothing wil relink- I've tried every possible combination I could find, all the TC's are now correct which messes EVERYTHING up and all of my old sequences need to be relinked by hand.

    I am having the same problem with error showing up when I extract the downloaded file. So, not being too familiar with computer procedure, what do you mean/and how do I unzip the file from - C:\Media_Composer_2019.aa_Win.zip?

    You can try to create a new folder in C: example. C:/NewFolder then copy paste the downloaded zip file then extract.

    Hell will freeze over before this gets fixed.

    And if they fix this problem, all files previously linked with the generic plugin won't link anymore.

    Also: don't work with linked clips.
