    MC7 & OSX 10.8.4 - Can't consolidate footage from CF card

    Hi,

    Our typical workflow (using Avid 6.5.2):

    Start new project in MC.  Create 'Footage' bin.  

    Insert CF card into card reader.  CF card will automatically open a new bin in project.  

    Drag files from CF bin to Footage bin.  Right click on files in Footage bin and select Consolidate.  Files go to big RAID in Server Room.  

     

    This works.  But now we have upgraded to MC 7 and OSX 10.8.4.   I'm pretty sure I successfully consolidated footage with my system when it was still MC 6.5.2 and OSX 10.8.4.   Anyway now it won't work, here is the error:

    (see attached screenshot)

    "Assertion failed: audioDesc && (0 < audioDesc->GetNumChannels0)

    File:

    /Volumes/Data/Snapshots/relengsnow3_1372098296/coresw/ame/Projects/Mac/_/_/src/msm/MultipleDescriptor.c, Line 462"

    I tried on two indentical systems.  Didn't work.  I have other system still on MC 6.5.2 and OSX 10.7.   It worked.

    So I can keep that system around and do all my consolidating with it, but hopefully soon they will fix this?  Anyone have similar experience or can shed some light?    Also,  when is the horizontal timeline scrolling coming back....

    Thanks!

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Yes, I was having the same problem consolidating clips from an F3.  It seems like only spanned clips are the problem as I was able to consolidate non-spanned clips.  I made the decision to go back to 6.5.3 until some of these bugs are worked out.  Good luck.

    Ok, guess it helps knowing I'm not the only one, I'll use my old system as a workaround for now.

    thanks for the reply Edit225,

    cheers,
