  • Re: Media Composer 2018.12 Now Available

    Mask Margin still works for me in 2018.12: From the Format dialog, enable Mask Margins and set to some choice (I used 2:1 for testing). Right-click in the Record monitor and chose Target Mask->Mix to White. The mask appears on the monitor. Export using the Source Browser and set the export option to Enable Mask. The result is a masked video.

  • Re: License sharing

    If you have a perpetual license, this lets you run the last version for which you paid maintenance, and any previous version. If you have a subscription license, then you can only run the version you have. If you have a dongle, just unplug it from the current system and plug it into your laptop.

  • Re: Media Composer 2018.12 Now Available

    I am seeing aliased edges in 4K projects (set the font size to something like 960). The short term fix is to set the softness of the face to 3 (may also have to do it for anything else that shows the jagged edges). There are a number of unexpected limitations. First and foremost is that most of the parameters cannot be keyframed. For me, that's

I've cut a 2 hour shot down to about 30 minutes in about 30 minutes. Of course it was nothing but straight cuts, and in linear order (2 cuts and extract, 2 cuts and extract,

  • Re: Source Browser shows “Last Modified” aka Date of Shoot...?

    [quote user="Telegram!"]My minor discovery, I think, was that we can look up a non-supported plug-in's original date, the same one that is shown at the PC finder level.[/quote] OK, I see what you mean. The Last Modified date in the source browser matches the shoot date in my XAVC-S as well. So the plug-in sees the metadata, and simply

  • Re: Source Browser shows “Last Modified” aka Date of Shoot...?

    Metadata support is somewhat lacking in MC. It all depends on what populates the metadata fields, and that's generally the plugin which links/imports the data (including whatever native ingesters are built into MC). For example, if I use MediaInfo on my XAVC-S clips, it shows me the the shoot date encoded in the metadata. This does not get populated

    Greg, You should not post your system ID, serial #, and Email on a public forum. I've edited the post to remove them and forwarded the info off to Marianna.

  • Re: GoPro 100fps 'Can't be linked'

    Try manually selecting the plug-in to use (right-click on the file in the Source Browser and choose Link With; try the generic plug-in first, and if that doesn't work try the QT plug-in). If neither works, you'll have to either re-wrap the media into a QT MOV file (very fast to do, but may be slow to edit in MC), or transcode to something else

  • Re: Tape based acquisition and editing - a dinoaurs perspective

    I've a long term personal project where I've been archiving my own tape library (hundreds of hours) to BluRay disks in the original DV or HDV CODECs (no transcoding, just a literal dump to disk), along with capturing all the old Hi-8 tapes and dumping to disk. It's a lot of disks, and not a very fast solution, but it's what I've
