    Re: Deal breaker: no PhraseFind or ScriptSync in v8.0??

    That sounds good on paper but with the world moving to 4k acquisition I'm finding that I have to use MC in a proxy workflow using Resolve to create the full rez master. It would be more efficent to use MC to edit and finish in 4k but that isn't an option right now when working on a documentary project where PF is a major benefit.

    I suspect if PF doesn't return by the end of 2015 I'll be forced to move to another editing platform that provides both 4k and phonic search support. If Avid announced today that it was done wtih Nexidia then I would move on to something else sooner. I've resisted moving on because Avid is my favorite editor. PF is such an important feature since it saves the cost of having everything transcribed. This is a key factor in being cost effective as a freelance editor.

    It is quite frustrating to move away from a platoform that I've invested tens of thousands of dollars in and start over. But thats the past and I have to look at what I can do to keep my customers served.

    It still sucks.

    One workaround would be to dual-boot with MC7 and MC8, activating as needed (or just leaving a dongle in there).  Use MC7 for content work and PhraseFind, and then move to MC8 and switch to a 4K project for finishing/output.

    FAR from ideal, but a possible workaround/compromise that lets you stay in MC end-to-end.

    Any news on PhraseFind?  It has been awhile since last report....

    I had hoped it would have been resolved by now. I'm in the process of moving on to another product.

    Not sure how that would help. Only MC offered options like these inside the application.

    That said, I share your frustration.

    I am not sure what the issue is here.  PF can simply be a plug in from Nexidia that you buy if you want and if not, then don't.  Buyer beware on versions.  Call me crazy that it seems pretty simple....

    Script Sync is the bigger issue. We use it all the time, and multiple editors depend on being able to match transcoded scripts to video interview quickly.

    I would be happy just paying Nexidia for that option instead of paying though avid, but it doesn't seem like it's even an option.

    I don't think PF can be implemented with the Avid's AVX architecture for plug-ins. It probably has to be part of the software itself.

    Boris now offers PF for Fnal Cut Pro & Adobe Premiere....

    How would one use Nexidia's product in Avid Bins w/o it being built into core Avid Program?

    Boris Soundbite -- "powered by Nexidia" I might add -- unfortunately is Mac only, not integrated, "might" work with MXF files with additional codecs installed, and only exports to FCP and Premiere via XML. Not perfect but at least it's something. See http://www.borisfx.com/Soundbite/

    The point though is if Boris, who I assume has less operating revenue than Avid, can figure out how to license Nexidia technology, why can't Avid?

    My OP is from over a year ago (!) and still no solution or official statement from Avid. Wow. I assume all of these Oscar nominated features cut with Media Composer are perpetually stuck on v7?

    Re: Deal breaker: no PhraseFind or ScriptSync in v8.0??

    i agree and i am working on doc with over 25000 of footage. I began it with PF and would really love to get it back....

     

    Here is a little update on product i found.  I wish this was resonably priced in outboard version but check out crazy price list in video. There isn't even a standalone filmmaker option....
