    Re: Media Composer 2018.12.5 AVAILABLE 14 May 2019

    HP z440 and z420, 2018.12.5 W7 x64, MXo2 mini.  Both PCs after patching, after cutting a multicam clip into a timeline, when the caps lock is enabled and the timeline played, the app crashes straight to desktop.  Repeatable.  And I did make a new user and trash the prefs.

    MC/SN 2018.6+7+8+9+12 x 16 Z400/420/440/800/820 PC's on W7 x64. 2 x Mac, 4 x PT 2019.5 HDX, S6 , X-MON, all on PCs. NEXIS E4 & ISIS 5000 X 2. [view my complete system specs]

    Marianna, why do we not get a full installer for MC 2018.12.5? The update patch makes a lot peaople problems. Waiting for 2019.6 is not a solution, as that version will be totally different. I want to have the current 2018 version running.

    Rihafilm:
    Hopefully we don't have to wait that long to get a fix for the cursor bug...

    We wait for over 9 months for some severe bugs, such as HW-I/O and Insert-Edit, to name just two, and not to speak about Titler+ which is buggy since over 5 months.

    My personal opinion is, that overall quality of MC has dropped and slowly approaches consumer stuff.

    I am also worried  about the develpment cycle of MC.

    Having 30+ MC Ultimate seats, and paying the annual subscriptions on each, we have not been able to roll out a stable version for over a year, probably longer than that.

     

    I have no problem paying for that development to happen, but at the moment I cannot see the value in having a subscription, when each new version released seems to have some problem that makes it not worthwhile to upgrade.

    We are keen to start using the new grouping tools and features.

     

    Can I ask someone from Avid: will 2018.12 be a sustaining release - i.e. will you keep releasing patches to address bugs, like you used to do? While 2019 looks good, there is no way we are upgrading to that until it has established itself.

    From the Continuation Engineering team..... the PC is easier to patch so that is why they did it.  If that version had improvements then they woud have done it as a full installer.  Mac has to be a full installer all the time.

    2019.6 will be full installers.  

    THats what I was told.

    2018.x and 2019.x are 2 completely different code based and are developed by 2 dofferent teams of engineers.  2018.x will ccontinue to be updated with fixes but NO improvements - while 2019.6 which we have been working on for quite a while will be the new UI, processor capable, etc... release.

    Hi Marianna,

    with great interest I read the article (link above), and I am glad, that MC 2018.12.x will continue to receive updates with bug fixes. 

    There is then a reason more to get the latest update with its bug fixes (2018.12.5) as a usable full installer. Currently installation of the Patch-installer does not work for languages other then US-english. Again, I ask you to make sure, that we, the users, get installable updates.

     

    Best regards,

    Posted this on the 2018.12.4 thread, is still relevant for .5:

    When you have timecode generator on sequence, and it isn't rendered, when you do a mixdown the timecode field just says n.a. on the mixdown, you need to render it first, then mixdown.

    I think I saw this was identifued as a bug a few point releases back, was hoping it would be fixed on this one, but unfortunately not. Sad

    I have a similar problem when exporting to QT h264. The TC generator must be rendered.

    Hi,

    Patch 2018.12.5 will also not install on our Win7 system.

     

    Just to make sure, are you trying to install it over 2018.12.3? If so, what happens when you try? Is there an error message?

    Joachim Claus:

    The patch did not install. I got an error message 

    "Database: Transformation: One line is not available and cannot be updated. Table: RemoveFile"

     

     

    For those ones who have the same problem with the patch installer, here is the procedure to solve it, and get MC 2018.12.5 Patch installed successfully:

    1. Uninstall MC 2018.12.3

    2. Change Windows 10 Region Scheme from German (Germany) to English(US), and reboot the system. =================================================================== . ************************************************************************************************* ===========================================================================
    • 3. Make sure the Avid MC locale has the default set to English (C:\Program Files\Avid Media Composer\SupportingFiles\International\xml\override.xml).
    • 4. Install MC 2018.12.3, and reboot the system.
    • 5. Install MC 2018.12.5 Patch.
    • 6. Reset Windows 10 Region Scheme back to German(Germany), and reboot the system.

    Good luck,
