  • Re: MC 2018.12 ProRes export problems

    Another factor (undocumented as far as I am aware, but confirmed by tests I performed a few years ago) is that the use of a Custom... QT export (i.e. by configuring the Quicktime-provided dialog box that appears) is *always* an 8-bit export regardless of the source codec or the chosen destination codec . I doubt this has changed since I performed these

  • Avid Titler+ - The good, the not-so-good and the ugly...

    My first impressions of Titler+ - Wow great at last, over 20 years after Unicode became a standard, we at last have a modern Title Tool, rewritten, with a modern(ish) interface. So I can add titles in all scripts, with diacritics, in Cyrillic, in arabic…. No more fiddling around with photoshop, exporting, importing. Hurray! - Toolbox nicely laid

  • Re: Resolve to Avid / tape name column

    If the Tape name says msmMMOB.xxx, it means that "Assist using reel names from the:" in Resolve was not checked and correctly configured - this happens when the Tape name in the MXF file is empty - refer to the above posts for info how to correctly configure Resolve. If you are not using Resolve, then you should find a way of having a valid

  • MC 8.5 Read Audio Timecode

    Hi all, Holding back on installing 8.5 for the moment... but I noticed in the "What's new" guide, with the reshuffling of the menus, certain features are seemingly lost. Notably for the Read Audio Timecode. It used to be in Special/Read Audio Timecode, but the column indicating where it is now is empty. Can anyone with 8.5 installed confirm

  • Re: Scan lists with handles

    For anyone fed up with the missing features from list tool (which is otherwise a great idea, it is unfortunate that Avid didn't go all the way... ) and wishing to install Filmscribe from an earlier system concurrently with Avid 8.3.1 or later...: On a system with Filmscribe installed copy the Avid Filmscribe folder to somewhere, eg. an external

  • Re: Scan lists with handles

    This is a fault with the List tool, I've submitted a support case. As with change lists, multiple sequence reels are also not supported. Switching to Filmscribe and it's possible, and I have handles - not ideal as a workaround as I don't think you can install Filmscribe on the same drive as MC 8.3.1 (Filmscribe uses shared libraries - so

  • Scan lists with handles

    Hello all, I'm using Avid 8.3.1. I'm trying to generate Scan lists with handles - but whatever I do, Avid seems to ignore the handles specified in the List tool. Does anyone have any workarounds or tips? Janusz

  • Recovering Quicklook for DNxHD on OS X 10.9-10.10

    Posting a little tip that corrects a little annoyance with Mavericks and Yosemite. It is no longer possible to preview DNxHD Quicktimes (and all other QTs in codecs other than Prores ou H264) with the space-bar. It turns out that the old behaviour can be recovered by "transplanting" the quicklook components that handle quicktime files from

  • Re: Why Does Color Correct Cause Banding?

    One other thing to wary of when bringing in QT footage via AMA, although this is less important for the OP's case which is already in 8-bit, is that as if Avid for some reason uses what it calls "Sample provider mode", the footage will be brought in as 8-bit, even if it is a 10-bit codec, with no warning. In some cases an AMA Link to Prores

  • Re: Stuff I wish they'd fix

    I thought I'd chime in with some thoughts/explanations regarding the perf slip issue and its implications. As a film editor and a developer with detailed knowledge of AAF/OMF/MXF I hope to give a slightly different angle as I'm both a user but understand the technical difficulties involved. This is going to be a long post, but I will conclude
