    I'm one of the lucky ones, just minor problems. But I have never tried SR MFX... but do you AMA them? just wondering since Sony hasn't released the plugin for MC7

    Re: IS MC 7 Tested before releasing?

    Is MC7 tested before releasing?  No, Avid enjoy making life hard for their users!  Of course it's tested.

    This sort of a problem is usually related to software conflicts or a bad install.  The first thing that I would try would be to completely uninstall MC, delete any Avid program directories, and re-install, having first read the Avid installation guide.

    That will usually sort out this sort of problem.  Although I did come across a problem here with the current Sony AMA code.  Henrik may have hit the nail on the head.

    [EDIT] It appears that the correct XDCAM plug ins from Sony will not be available until the end of this month.  If I recall correctly Sony were late last time too.  Is there a pattern here? [END EDIT]

    Note

    Supported Avid Products: Media Composer 6.5, Symphony 6.5. The current plug-in does not officially support Avid Media Composer 7. An update to add support for Avid Media Composer 7 is expected to release near the end of July.

    Re: IS MC 7 Tested before releasing?

    I would not be suprised that MC 7.0 was released with known bugs.

    Commercial calendar doesnt take care of final product quality.

    It was the case for MC6.0. For exemple the keyboard langage. That was an issue clearly identified by beta users. But it took months before that was fixed. I was so desapointed by that bad commercial behaviour.

    The AMA plugin not being released by a third-party vendor is not a bug.  Would you rather they kept MC7 back and waited for all the plugins to be ready?  What if I want background transcoding now, and I don't care about Sony AMA plugins because I don't use Sony cameras?

    Wow.  I find that comment laughable.  I guess Avid is the only commercial software to be released with bugs.  At least Avid is honest enough to tell you about the known bugs in the Readme file that no one reads and then tells you which bugs it fixed in each update.

    While generally doing an exceptional job, one component Avid is unable to test thoroughly is the user.

    Re: IS MC 7 Tested before releasing?

    Even though I have downloaded MC7 I have not installed it yet because of all the AMA issues that can arise from waiting for the camera manufacturerrs to provide a working plugin. Also, I never install a brand new x.0 release unless I critically need an item in the new release. Better to stick with what is working and not cause myself and my clients any grief.

    I may install the trial version on my laptop if I get some extra time and run through some of the new features. It seems that there are enough issues with MC7, AMA plugins, hardware compatability to wait until a X.1 release. Looking forward to "testing" the new MC7 and making sure it will run smoothly before I put it online for a client.

    Re: IS MC 7 Tested before releasing?

    For What It's Worth, I've got MC 7 running on a very low-end system and it's running fine. Subjectively the performance is faster than 6.5 And not having to wait for the audio graph to update every time I shift the timeline is worth the install all by itself.
