    Media Composer 8.4.2 Now Available (23 Sep 2015)

    Media Composer 8.4.2 is now available from the Avid Download Center.

    https://www.avid.com/US/support/downloads

    Who is this for?  

    This update is for Media Composer v8.4.x customers who are either on an active Subscription or Upgrade & Support Plan as of September 23, 2015.

    Fixes include:

    * The aspect ratio did not appear correctly for edit while capture clips. In some instances a 16:9 clip would appear as 4:3 in Media Composer.

    * In some instances, Media Composer would freeze when exporting XDCAM 50 media to ISIS storage.

    * If you were in RGB 709 color space with bit depth set to 12 bit and video quality menu set to 12 bit, and you performed a playback from Frame View, made an edit in Trim mode and exit, or selected Source Settings and then exited, you received a “Two Exception:Tee build” error.

    * The resulting image was distorted when you used the Spot Color Correction effect with a shape tool.

    * (Artist DNxIO) You might have experienced dropped frame when playing back 1 Stream of 4K 59.94P AMA XAVC-I in full resolution 8-bit.

    Thank you for these improvements.
    But we are still waiting for Win 10 compatibility and rectify the many serious errors,
    such as editing ability with AVCHD
    Intelace of Panasonic GH4 camcorder
    or better cooperation with Full HD IPB codecs that camera (like MP4 or MOV).
    And in this, new 8.4.2 version I found new bug.
    I can't now change the sound level by moving many sound markers on the timeline.
    Earlier it was possible.


    Best Regards.

    Download not possible.

    When I go to download center, I´m asked to link my account (although I did this before and downloaded previous versions without problems), but the link (to link account) doesn´t work. Create new account doesn´t work either. I tried with Firefox, Explorer, Chrome -. nothing works.

    Again it's very annoying!! that avid does not relate to the issues we raise here. Since version 8.4 came out I mentioned about a serious bug in the title tool with the Hebrew language and it turns out that there is a problem with other languages as well. I also mentioned this when the 8.4.1 version came out and still now when version 8.4.2. Avid didn't fix this bug. Very disappointing!!

    You are right , this is very disappointing. 

    We have 10 Avid system and we work mostly in french and english but since version 8.4 it is useless. Since some of our projetcs are new saison from older show , all the text for credit and titile are formated.

    Can we have a date for that fix...

    Maybe Avid decided that M.C is now for English speaking only and forgot to tell us..

    Sure would be nice to have a timeline for the fix to some of these issues - even an acknowledgement on a list of known defects.

    Re: Media Composer 8.4.2 Now Available (23 Sep 2015)

    Downoaded 8.4.2 the other night and it all went pretty well straight forward,  didn't have to re-load New Blue Squeeze etc.etc so didn't miss a beat, bit unfair to label it "useless" maybe, 

    Not looking for a ding just thought to acknowledge the effort the hard working folk are putting into it,looks ok to me but then again I'm not dealing with the issues raised like other languages and the like.

    Just an ordinary enough user and it is looking pretty good at least so far...etc etc...
