    Media Composer 2022.12 Available Today - 27 Dec 2022

    Great News!!! Avid is pleased to announce the release of  Media Composer 2022.12 today Tuesday, December 27th, 2022. Important note on the New Feature Export Pro Tools Session. The ability for Media Composer to export directly to Pro Tools is only going to be in Media Composer Ultimate and Media Composer Enterprise licenses.

    Location at Launch: The Media Composer 2022.12 (Mac and PC) is available in your MyAvid Master Accounts, through the Avid Link application itself, and from the Download Center. 

    Status of Support Plan: The ability to launch this Media Composer 2022.12 software is dependent on the status of your Upgrade and Support Plan on the date this software version is released. Media Composer 2022.12 is released on Tuesday December 27th, 2022 12pm EDT.

    Media Composer Notes

    Media Composer v2022.10 does not support MediaCentral | Production Management.

    MCDEV-11537 If you intend to use full-frame stereoscopic with an Avid Artist DNxIQ, you may want to remain with Media Composer v2018.12.x until the issues with Stereoscopic support are resolved in a future version.

    New in Media Composer v2022.12: The following are new for Media Composer v2022.12:

    • Export Pro Tools Session. Projects that require additional audio editing, mixing, and picture turnover to a sound department, are now able to move their sessions more easily to Pro Tools by outputting a Pro Tools Session file (.ptx) from Media Composer. Users familiar with AAF export will notice similarities to that process, although a Pro Tools Session file includes options that optimize interchange with Pro Tools. Export of Pro Tools Session files is limited to Media Composer | Ultimate and Media Composer | Enterprise licenses.

    After completing the export process and opening a session in Pro Tools, you will notice that some new items were created. The inclusion of these new tracks and folders simplifies the setup of a Pro Tools session by automating several time-consuming tasks that were once done manually.

    • Support for Avid MBOX Studio. Media Composer supports the new Avid MBOX Studio USB audio interface for both Windows and macOS. Connecting the Avid MBOX Studio to Media Composer gives you up to 8 channels of input and output (depending on configuration and additional hardware), including multi-channel, “surround sound” playback on both macOS and Windows. Up to 4 channels can be used for punch-ins, with zero-latency for mixing and monitoring.

    • Mounting UNC Drives in Media Composer. When using storage volumes with drive letters, the number of drives you can mount is limited and hard to maintain over a network. UNC (Universal Naming Convention) paths resolve these issues and are the standard for identifying servers and other resources in a local network. Previously, only NEXIS workspaces could mount drives with UNC paths. In the latest version of Media Composer, available UNC drives will be displayed in the appropriate menus and available for any read and write operations.

    • Go to Previous Selected Clip and Go to Next Selected Clip. With the new “Go to Previous Selected Clip” and “Go to Next Selected Clip” commands, users can move forward and backward in the Timeline, depending on their selection. Once selected, the position indicator moves to the head of the corresponding clip. If multiple clips are selected in the Timeline, you can use this feature to toggle easily between two positions or move sequentially through your selections. “Go to Next Selected Clip” and “Go to Previous Selected Clip” are both available in the Command Palette and mappable to a keyboard shortcut or as a button in the Tool Palette.

    • Creation Date Column Added to Markers Window. The Markers window now contains a Creation Date column, which is available for the first time in the Media Composer user interface. This is particularly useful when looking for the latest notes and comments that were added as markers, or when looking to identify changes made on a specific day.

    • Bin Map State. When creating a new bin, the Bin Map will be turned off by default, until activated by the user. The current state of a bin, including its Bin Map state, is still remembered for each bin. In addition, a new option to set whether the Bin Map is on by default for all new bins has been added to the Bins tab in the Interface settings with the “Default Bin Map on for new Bins” checkbox.

    • Lassoing Bins and Folders in the Bin Container Sidebar. When making selections in the Bin Container, you can now start by clicking and dragging from the area to the left of the bin icons. In some instances, this makes it easier to grab several items, especially when there are a large number of files that go over the height of the bin and the selection starts from the top.

    • Dragging from Any Column in a Bin. It is now possible to drag an item within a bin and from a bin, regardless of which column you have clicked on. This eliminates the frustration of clicking on a column that might accidentally put you into text edit mode, such as in the Name column, and reduces the risk of overwriting important metadata in those columns. Once you’ve identified an item you want to drag, simply click anywhere in one of its columns and move it while continuing to hold down the mouse button.

    • Ignore Multichannel Audio Layout From File. Whenever a linked media file contains multichannel audio, Media Composer preserves those channels by default. With the new “Ignore Multichannel Audio Layout from File” checkbox, in the Link Options tab of the Link Settings window, you now have the ability to override this default behavior and use the custom settings you’ve made in the “Set Multichannel Audio” dialog box, which is accessed via the “Edit” button in the same window.

    What’s Fixed in 2022.12: The following has been fixed.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4433. Audio playback was faster than normal for clips created with Interplay Capture and AirSpeed Multi Stream.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4786. Metadata for imported .wav files was interpreted incorrectly, causing a change in track order and appearance of track names.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4613. In some instances, switching from Live Mix to Clip mode in the Audio mixer caused an "Assertion failed: IsValidPanCoefficientValue (newCoefficient)" error.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4635. Adding an effect to a clip with Three Tone, HSL Color Correction applied caused the Color Correction controls to stop working.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4809. In some instances, audio for proxy media experienced playback errors, including distorted sound and playback that stopped unexpectedly.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4504. Frame thumbnails in the Markers window, for markers on the lower tracks of the Timeline, displayed an image from the topmost track.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4826. (macOS) Switching between user profiles with specific strings of Japanese characters in their name was not possible due to an issue with UTF-8 encoding.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4641. In some instances, user interface and playback would slow down and stop responding if sequences contained certain effects, such as the Safe Color Limiter.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4672. Timeline would center around the blue bar (current position indicator) while zooming in and out during playback and did not retain the position selected by user when “Timeline Movement During Play” was set to “Scroll”. Media Composer now retains the position selected by user and the blue bar is centered when playback is stopped.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4430. aNested clips that contained offline media appeared colored, as though they were online, even if missing media was located in a nested layer.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4858. Switching Audio Punch-in tool from Live mode to Auto mode caused an "Assertion failed: IsValidPanCoefficientValue (newCoefficient)" error.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4734. New bin names did not update properly while the Source Browser was open.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4774. NDI and SRT options were deselected after restarting Media Composer with Multiplex I/O active.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4843. Floating bins changed position and size each time a project was closed and reopened.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4770. Mask Margins were visible over the color correction monitors (such as the vectorscope and waveform monitors) in the Composer window.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4708. (macOS) When windows were floating in Media Composer and another application was running in the background, switching focus and bringing that application to the front required two mouse clicks.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4796. (macOS) Assets in a bin could not be selected after Option + Right-clicking on the Color column and making a selection with the color wheel.

    EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED that Avid has not made Pro Tools Session exports available to perpetual users. What a SLAP in the face to those that have supported Avid over the years. Don't tell us that it can't be done. Tell us that it will be added in the next release. Be like Blackmagic, NOT ADOBE!

     

    As Avid goes the Adobe route, Blackmagic Design are investing in a $200 piece of software with free updates and a "will" to further upset the industry. Avid should think along these lines to attract NEW users, not us OLD folk who grew up with Avid.  

     

    The one thing Avid has not had for years and when its finally introduced, you have to SUBSCRIBE to Ultimate or Enterprise. What a crock!

    As someone who just gave up on trying to be a new user, I can assure you that Avid feels much worse than Adobe to a newcomer.

    Thx Carl,

    I don't believe my eyes. Thank you Avid. Even after XX years.

    Also very disappointed.

    The message to the owner of perpetual licenses is disturbing. I may reconsider my long term commitment to MC if I am under the impression that significant features - in particular in terms of workflow - will be available to subscribers only.

    We need a clear statement of the future of perpetual licenses and which features will be reserved to subscriptions.

    Re: Media Composer 2022.12 Available Today - 27 Dec 2022

    Another dissapointed user.

     

    I have been using MC for over 20 years and have owned my personal copy for over 12 years. The "improvements" that have been fed to the masses in the past few years were a very deceiding factor in my decision not to renew my perpttual licence a few days ago.

     

    The disaster that is Titler+ shines once again in the latest release with a total absence on the part of Avid of even the smallest of corrections to the long list of well documented failures and omissions by countless users since it was forced upon the user base.

     

    I have been moving my projects slowly, but surely, during the past 18 months over to Resolve and don't regret having spent the time doing it. I will keep ma perpetual copy for all my older projects just in case, but it will spend more time collecting dust than being put to use.

     

    I wish you all a very Happy New Year and success with your lives in 2023.

    And another. 

    I have been an Avid customer for nearly 20 years and have come to the same decision not to renew my perpetual licence when it expired a few days ago. 

    I too have moved over to Resolve, which is now a very capable editor as well as the best colour grading program out there.

    The contrast between Blackmagic's approach and Avid's is very pronounced. Resolve Studio is a one-off payment of $299 with no charge for new versions, and a considerable amount of development and new features added each year, wheras Avid expects me to pay $499 annually for precious little in the way of improvements to the program over the last few years.

    Resolve's editor has improved to the point that there is very little one can do in Avid that is much different in Resolve and the ability to do colour corrercting, compositing and audio all in one program without round-tripping is a massive advantage to Resolve, not to mention a Titler that actually works.

    Sad to see how Avid has lost it's way and essentially now ignores anything but the major broadcast facility market.

    Re: Media Composer 2022.12 Available Today - 27 Dec 2022

    I've been trialling 2022.10.  10 mins into a simple session just now it bombed out and again I lost some work; waveforms are terribly slow/non existet and there is a saving delay bug.  None of this was the case with 2018.15 and my dongle.  There was a reason I held off but I clearly havent held off long enough - and I still hate the new bin system - unfindable bins hidden behind others is not progress. Still not getting my head around it and cant lay my workspaces out as I want them (effects pallette on left mon for eg).  I will ask to trial this new version and if it remains buggy and forces a sub based approach too then I too am done afgter 20yrs +

    I just thought I'd chip in and add that we moved from 2018.12 x this year to 2021.12 x and we were very twitchy about it after all the discussions, however it has been pretty pain free and some of the features are really handy for us. Prores exports from a PC is a major big deal. ( resolve on a PC doesn't do this which is very annoying BTW)

    We have't found it any less reliable than 2018.12 just different 

    Despite this I would also say that the unfindable bins and things behind things is truly bizarre and infuriating- and something you don't see in any other software anywhere that i've come across. 

    I think we have found the younger people with less Avid history have adapted better to the new UI. I'm not one of these!

    I think we have found the younger people with less Avid history have adapted better to the new UI.

    Just wanted to speak up for the old guys who've been on Media Composer since 1996 who have no trouble with the UI changes. I like having docked bins, tabbed bins, and workspaces set up for different screen setups and different workflows.

    That's not to say there aren't areas that can be improved; there definitely are.

    {yell at cloud} First off, make the legacy Title Tool work with current systems.

    Next, launch Titler+ into the Sun and add a chapter to the Charter of the United Nations forbidding all the people of the Earth from ever speaking of it again. 

    Then I'd fix the licensing, which is an overcomplicated mess. Step off the path of 'here's a basic Media Composer and here are all the options you can buy separately'. We've walked that path before with Xpress Pro, and all it did was piss people off while adding to the complexity of products and pricing. Avid should offer Media Composer, and with that you get all the bells and whistles - ScriptSync, Phrasefind, ProTools export, bin sharing, and whatever other options there are currently or in the future.

    There should be daily/weekly/monthly/yearly subscriptions, and you should be able to run any version that exists while your subscription is active (assuming your computer meets the specifications for the version you want to run).

    While your subscription is active you should not have to connect to the internet, or log in to any apps or websites. (The only exception to this is if you want to switch computers, in which case whatever computer is being used should automatically connect to the internet and take control of the active subscription.)

    Of course I'm a television editor, and I know nothing about programming or running a company. If anyone would like to offer counter-arguments to any of this, please address them to that brick wall over there ------>
