    MC8 timeline shows duplicate audio tracks

    Hi all -

    I've been working in a Media Composer timeline with several audio tracks - a mix of both stereo and mono - which I inherited from a previous editor. Yesterday I added three more stereo audio tracks, but for some reason I see a duplicate of each of those three tracks in my timeline. These duplicates cannot be deleted - for example, deleting one track labeled A17 also deletes the other A17. 

    My first thought was to go to the Timeline Fast Menu (hamburger) > Show Track, and then deselect the repeated audio tracks. It worked and I even saved the timeline view setting afterwards. BUT as soon as I used a different view setting (for example, I have one with waveforms and one without) and then switched back to the newly saved setting, the duplicates were back. I have restarted both the software alone and the entire computer, as well as created a new sequence, but I am not having any luck. I've attached two screenshots of the issue below. 

    I'm hoping someone can explain why this is happening and suggest a solution, if one exists! I feel like I'm probably missing something very straightforward!

    Many thanks in advance

    -Rebecca

    Try renaming the duplicate tracks only and see what happens.

    MacPro, MacBook Pro and a Cube (masquerading as a kleenex dispenser). [view my complete system specs]

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    Update: 

    I created a new project and copied over all the bins from the old one. The duplicated tracks are no longer showing in the timeline, although they do still appear under Fast Menu > Show Track. I can deal with that though!

    Re: MC8 timeline shows duplicate audio tracks

    Hello,

    Had the same problem in avid MC 7.0.4 and Avid MC 7.0.4.2 on Mac OSX 10.7.5

    This was caused by corupted MCstate files in /Applications/Avid Media Composer/...  and /Users/Shared/AvidMediacomposer/..

    After deleting the MCstate files, the project came back whitout the duplicate tracks

     

    MY systems are MacPro ( old and new ) Imac i7, 16GB mem, osx10.7 - osx 10.10

     

     

    MacPro 2011 model 3.3GHz quadcore 16GB memory, Apple raid card, Kona3 card, 10Gb/s network OSX 10.7 MacPro 2010 model 2.4GHz 8-core, 20GB memory, Nitris... [view my complete system specs]

    Just had similar issue in MC 8.6.5 on OSX 10.9.5. Tracks 21-28 appeared twice and mirrored each other (mark, lift, solo, etc)

    Deleting MCstate fixed the issue! Thank you!
