    What’s Fixed in 2023.3: The following has been fixed.

     

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4850. Opening another sequence while in the Color Correction workspace caused the Edit workspace to load and altered the layout of the original Color Correction workspace.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4760. (MediaCentral | Production Management) In some instances, logging out of Production Management with media status indicators for Resolution enabled (black "dots" in columns within the Production Management Window) caused the application to hang.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4521. (MediaCentral | Production Management) The media status indicator in the Production Management Window, represented by a black dot in the corresponding format column, did not display properly when media was online and available.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4628. AAF files exported from Media Composer and opened in Pro Tools caused some values to change for fades, clip gain, and other audio parameters.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4784. Spanned media did not link properly and would revert to media offline when Dynamic Relink was enabled.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4870. Labels were inverted in the surround sound pan controls of the Audio Mixer for tracks panned between the front and rear (f/r) speaker positions. Although the labels were incorrect, pan controls for the Y-axis position of the panner were not affected.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4816. Group clips were incorrectly scaled in the Record monitor if a gap existed before the clips in a sequence and the resolution of clips did not match the project settings.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4882. MultiGroup clips with audio waveforms enabled caused Media Composer to crash.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4915. When performing a Dynamic Relink operation, audio was offline for clips with audio tracks not starting at A1.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4957. Adding a Baselight or Magic Bullet Looks effect to a sequence caused "an unrecoverable error has occurred" or "a serious error has occurred" message to appear when relaunching a project with that same sequence already opened.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4503. Audio clip gain values were lost and returned to unity gain if the clip was re-rendered, after making an adjustment to any plug-ins that were already applied and rendered.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4970. (MediaCentral | Production Management) Ingesting P2 files and creating sequences of clips using third-party MintUpload software caused an "Assertion failed: *expectedBytesRead" error.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4602. Master Caption List was out of order when the SubCap effect was placed on two tracks and some captions were muted.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4803. Linking or Importing Apple ProRes 4444 Mov files created with an Arri Alexa Mini caused Media Composer to quit unexpectedly if QuickTime was installed.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4407. Selecting multiple lines of dialog in the Script window and pressing the spacebar (or right-clicking and selecting "play" from the context menu) caused the incorrect line of dialog to play back.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-5029. When using “Transcode on Send to Playback" with a sequence that has Group clips, the Send to Playback would fail.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-4953. (MediaCentral | Production Management) Audio waveforms for linked clips were very slow to draw, which significantly impacted performance and the ability to work within the interface.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-3909. Media Composer appeared to hang on launch when using a checked-out license with no VPN connection to the license server.

    ·         Bug Number: MCCET-5027. The Timecode Window, accessed via the Tools menu, would not redraw properly after changing the size of its font, which affected the amount of black space in the window.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-17005. Splitter in Effect Palette changed position after a restart.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-15381. Highlighted text in the Comment field of the Marker tool was white on white and difficult to read when using dark interface skins.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-15832. Track names containing dots caused a triangle to appear on the Track Selector panel.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-16738. "Sync Lock All Tracks" button command did not work if Timecode (TC) track was hidden.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-17162. The Lock/Unlock Sequence commands, activated by Option+Right-Clicking (macOS) or Alt+Right-Clicking in the Track Control panel, did not lock all tracks and displayed inconsistent messaging.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-16680. Fast Menu and Quick Find Field were not always visible in the Markers tool or Timeline Clip Notes windows, until windows were resized to show scrollbar.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-15189. Source Browser would not attach as expected to other tools and windows via its tab in the vertical title bar.

    ·         Bug Number: MCDEV-17579. Double-clicking on a search results multiple times in the Find window caused the bin containing the clip to eventually float and close.

    Incredibly disappointing to see nothing new on the Titler+ front.   It's six years now since Apple told the developer community that support for 32-bit apps would end, meaning the old TItle Tool would die.

    SIX.

    WHOLE.

    YEARS.

    Re: Media Composer 2023.3 - Available Now

    On the positive side, it seems that AVID heard complaints about the protools session export feature limited to subscription only. Now it is written that "Pro Tools Session Export is now available for owners of pre-existing perpetual licenses of Media Composer | Ultimate and Media Composer | Enterprise."

    Thanks! Next step hopefully will be native support...perhaps previewed during NAB?

    Doesn't export audio properly. This version is unusable for me. I went back to 2022.12.2 here the export is correct.

    Details please?

    Could be something specific to your setup or if it is a larger issue then those details are necessary to reproduce and fix.

    Re: Media Composer 2023.3 - Available Now

    My system is:

    iMac Pro 3GHz, Radeon Pro 56, 64GB Ram.

    macOS Ventura 13.1

    Avid artist DNxID, Deskop Video 12.4.2

    Attempting to install 2023.3 via Avid Link.

    Media composer stops when starting AMPIPluginDSM.avx

    I downloaded Avid 2023.03 from the Avid Download Center

    I uninstalled avid and reinstalled it.

    I created a new user. and deleted system files.

    Avid 2023.03 started successfully.

    Export my sequence created in previous version as MP4.

    It failed.

    I exported again to DNxHD SQ. The image was exported correctly, but the sound was distorted (low level and rumbling)

    Again exported to waw file. I also got distorted sound.

    I uninstalled 2023.3 and installed 2022.12.2

    I exported my sequence, this export was correct.

    Just updated Mac OS to Ventura 13.3.1 and installed MC 2023.3. My iMac has a Bootcamp partition and MC hangs on 'Initializing Avid Media Access Volume Manager'. I have to Force Quit. If I unmount the Bootcamp partition, MC launches OK. I have a similar setup on a MacBook with Monterey (12.5.1) and MC 2012.12.4 and it runs OK (with a short delay) at 'Initializing Avid Media Access Volume Manager'. I realise that this is an unusual setup but I thought I'd report it.

    Hi,

    Have you tried rebuilding AMA management?

    Thanks - that was the first thing I did. Also trashed MCState but no good. I will delete the Bootcamp partition, I think, as it was only there for testing purposes.

    Re: Media Composer 2023.3 - Available Now

    I removed the Bootcamp partition with some difficulty (if anyone needs to do this, follow Apple's instructions - don't do as I do and try to remove the partition using Disk Utility). I was left with 100Gb of 'free space' I could not use.

    Anyway. I reinstalled MC 2023.3 and it mostly works fine with one exception - the Source Browser does not work as expected. I'll post a new mesage about that.
