    HEVC and Media Composer

    Footage shot on an iPhone (13) at 1920x1080 won't import or link in the Media Composer v2021.9. 

    Drastic Reaction has a plug-in for $99.  Anyone have experience with the plug-in?  Is there an Avid workaround or procedure?

    Re: HEVC and Media Composer

    Avid added a feature called UME (universal media engine) in 2020.4. 

    Linking via UME rather than AMA allows you to link to HEVC material. You can also do a UME export and export H.265

    The plugin is targeted at versions of media composer prior to 2020.4

    Are you sure the codec is of the clip is HEVC? If it it, it should link. Are you able to send me the video, I could try to ingest it on my end?

    Correction* it was 2020.6 which was the first version of UME.

    Also make sure you LINK not IMPORT the HEVC clip.

    Thank you!  Wow, that was great.  I'm trying now.  Will let you know.

     

    UPDATE:

    Worked like a dream (almost).  Footage is blown out.  

    These clips don't appear to import easily.  Linking and transcoding is probably the best bet if you don't like editing with linked clips.

    There was a fix:

    Siredit:

    click the AMA file, select Source Setting..., under the 'Color Encoding' tab (the default tab) click the box 'Bypass all color transformations', problem should be solved. Cheers.

    Re: HEVC and Media Composer

    I’m dealing with that issue too. I’ve been transcoding them to prores or h264 in Media Encoder. Then doing the usual AMA/transcode into avid. Its been working fine, HOWEVER, audio can get wonky and out of sync sometimes with iPhone footage, so always double check it. Theres a setting on iphones that make the frame rate variable by default. Lord knows the cast I’m dealing with aint listening to our instructions when they’re shooting their own content from home smh
