    Re: Media Composer 2020.12 Available NOW - 21 Dec 2020

    You're not alone. Same problem with markers here.

    Anyone having MC crash when using "Set Name column for selected clips..." - or Labroll column or something?

    Welcome to the forums Polar-Bear, You might be better off by posting over the Mac side of the forums. As for the fonts issue, I've read somewhere that there might be troubles with some fonts on the Mac, You have to use the bold flavour as a workaround, don't know if this applies to Your setup though.

    Thank you! About to continue the discussion there. Sorry.

    Yes! I am having the same issue. Couldn't find a workaround so I just downgraded to 2020.10.

    I've been in contact with support. MC crashing when using "set ... column" is a known bug (MCCET-3945) and will hopefully be fixed soon.

    Re: Media Composer 2020.12 Available NOW - 21 Dec 2020

    I am about to upgrade from 2018.12.2   I just never did because this version was stable and I had two jobs going that I couldnt have disruptions.

     

    Now I have the time to update.  Does anyone have any advice?  Is there anything special I need to do when updating?  Do I need to deactivate my current avid before updating?  I haven't updated in a while and cant remember the steps!  

     

    any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Todd

    Todd H:
    Does anyone have any advice?  Is there anything special I need to do when updating?  Do I need to deactivate my current avid before updating?

    I've never deactivated and never had a problem. As long as you're upgrading on the same computer you should be fine. I've also never done anything special before upgrading, aside from creating new user settings when Avid says it's mandatory.

    Since you're going from the old UI to the new one, you have to create new user settings. The new UI isn't that different, but if you're not good with change, you might want to look at a guide/tutorial: https://youtu.be/QzZuE5AK2Mk

    You could also rename your 'Avid Projects' folder to 'xAvid Projects' to make sure it's extra safe, but this is not a requirement, and I don't always do it.

    As for the steps, I just download the update, unzip it, and run the installer, which takes care of the rest. It will ask you if you want to deactivate, but you don't have to.

    thank you for the quick reply.  I deactivated and uninstalled.  Then installed and had zero problems!  my projects worked fine and even my keyboard shortcuts were still in tact somehow!!

    Hi Marianna, did this issue with Marker get looked into?  I have the same problem.  I create a new marker be then have to click in the dialogue box to be able to write - previously I could just create a maerker and begin typing.

    Hi all,

    Has anybody had issues with changing bulk values in a bin. Setting disk label for multiple items in a bin at once gives me the wheel of death. Bulk Edit works but I'd like to avoid the extra clicks and use a very simple age old function. 

    Thanks!

    If it's via the menu option "Set ... column for selected clips" then it's a known bug: MCCET-3945

    Super annoying, hope, that will be fixed soon. Wasn't it the same in an older version of Avid? Hmm

    Why does the readme say "Windows v10 64-bit v1809 or later".  It should specify the latest windows build that it works on.

    Its much more accurate on the Mac OS builds: "Macintosh 10.13.6, 10.14.6, 10.15.6, 10.15.7, 11.1"

    Possibly because Windows updates are seldom as catastrophic as Mac updates?

    Re: Media Composer 2020.12 Available NOW - 21 Dec 2020

    Carl!!

    Kicking the tires on 2020.12 for the first time today - struggling with one thing: when I switch workspaces from edit to effect or color correction, I see the project window disappears unless I open it myself -- instead I just see the effects palette. On the edit workspace, I've set up the window to sort of mimic old versions - Project, Effects and Settings tabbed in one window. But in those other workspaces, it doesn't seem to want to let me add the project window to the tabbed window with Effect Palette and Settings - it's a minor thing... but annoying. Any tips?
