    Seriously!

    Is it me or is this forum site buggy as hell.

    I haven't posted anything in awhile and forgot to always copy my text before pressing send.

    Well after writing a stupid long tirade about my Transcode issues it all went to crap after pressing send :P

    It's 2017 and I'm still having these issues.

    Using Chrome on Windows 7.

    I've had the same issues on Safari/Chrome on Mac.

    Re: Seriously!

    It crashed again but this time I copied the text:

     

    Okay, lets try this again.

    I was trying to find a quicker solution to transcoding a 20 day RED HELIUM shoot.

    First attempt was RESOLVE 12.5 using AVID AAF. 92 clips took about 2.4 hours.

    I ran into an issue with the MXFs in AVID due to a bug in RESOLVE using the AUDIO SYNC option.

    So I went and did the same 92 clip transcode in AVID.

    Well that was taking way too long and gave up after 4 hours and only 6 clips to show for.

    I did some digging around and noticed that the transcode was correct but the sizing was the same.

    From RESOLVE I chose 1080p HD.

    I thought AVID transcode would take the PROJECT SETTINGS as file size?

    I am using MC 8.9.3. If anyone has any tips on this please send.

    Another issue is when using AUDIO SYNC in AVID, some of the clips would be shorter in time length.

    This is with the original LINKED RED files. Same issues with the RESOLVE export.

    Its all moot anyways since those shortened files didn't SYNC correctly.

    I really would have liked to do the AUDIO SYNC in RESOLVE then export to AVID AAF.

    I also found a bug from RESOLVE. If you dont select the AUDIO option in AVID AAF & MXF, the AAF file does not export a timeline. Your stuck with a folder full of MXFs.

    All these issues were non existent in the past using AVID MC 8.4 and RESOLVE 12.5.

    But that was with RED MX and REDONE files.

    Re: Seriously!

    It works if you type in less than 1 min then press send.

    For me, anything past a minute the *** thing crashes :P

      Not happening here, you can try to put a check on the "Remember me" when you log into your Avid master account.

    I reported this years ago and I guess its still an issue.

    I just have to remember to copy the text prior.

    Re: Seriously!

    As far as the site crashes it must be me.

    I cant say its platform specific since I've experienced it on both Mac and PC.

    I know I just need to be more patient with this site.

    Apologies for the site rant.

    I just checked in Media Creation and applied sixteenth.

    The transcode still came out as 6K pixel res.

    The only good thing is that the new transcode worked with audio sync.

    It seems to not work as well on the AMA version along with the imported audio.

    For that one I got to use the Slip Perf.

    I ended up exporting MXFs from Resolve in HD and synced in Avid.

    The sync success rate was about 80%.

    Now I am trying to figure out slip perf in 8.9.3.

    Ill post that as a new topic.

    Thanks everyone for replying.

    Copying this post now before pressing "Post" :)
