    Media Composer 8.8.4 NOW AVAILABLE - 6 June 2017

    We are pleased to announce the release of Media Composer v8.8.4.  

    Location:  Media Composer v8.8.4 will be available from My Avid Master Accounts, Application Manager, and the Avid Download Center (login and password required) as of today (6/6/17 ) at 12:00 noon ET.  

    Changed: Installer & Patch:  There is a Media Composer v8.8.4 Mac and Win Installer as well as a Media Composer v8.8.4 Patch ( Win only).  No Mac patch at this time.

    Changed in v8.8.4: The following has been changed in this release.

    Blur Effect - With this release, the Fixed Aspect option has been added to the Blur effect to allow you to lock X and Y to the same values.

    Fixed in v8.8.4:  The following has been fixed in this release.

    -  In some instances, performing a slip trim might not have updated the trim window during the trim.

    -  Opening the Effect Editor after audio levels were adjusted and a Timewarp Effect was applied resulted in “Unavailable Effect” appeared in the Effect Editor instead of the Timewarp properties.

    -  In some instances, AudioSuite effects may have become un-rendered after performing a trim, lift or Add Edit in film projects. This has been fixed for effects rendered in 8.8.4 and later. Note that if you bring a sequence created in Media Composer v8.8.4, and open it in an earlier version of the editing application, the AudioSuite effects might be un-rendered.

    -  In some instances, loading AVC Intra RGB 4:4:4 media would cause Media Composer to crash.

    -  Performing a background render on a New Blue Title resulted in a watermarked effect. Fixed in Media Composer v8.8.4

    -  You might have received an assertion error when changing the color encoding or FrameFlex settings for an AMA linked high frame rate clip.

    -  With AJA I/O hardware connected, you could select resolutions that should not have been available.

    -  With Dupe Detection enabled, the editing application was slow when selecting segments in a sequence with multiple tracks of video and audio.

    -  You could not enter values into FrameFlex formats when the decimal was a comma.

    -  In some instances, the system crashed linking DNxHD QuickTime files or resulted in white noise on audio tracks.

    -  Matte keys did not consolidate using background consolidate.

    -  When working in a Japanese locale, the word “Dissolve” in the List Tool was displayed incorrectly.

    -  Grid settings reset to default after quitting out of a project

    -  In some instances, black or filler was corrupted when adding multiple effects.

    -  The “Close All Bins But Active” option did not work when working in a Japanese locale.

    -  Disabled muted clips were still showing when pressing Next in Group using keyboard shortcuts.

    -  The AudioSuite Signal Generator effect could not be rendered.

    -  UHD resolutions were not available in Dynamic relink settings.

    -  Resizing a bin was slow for bins that contained sources in a workspace that was not mounted.

    -  In some instances, after performing a video mix-down, the Wrong Format slide would appear when loading the sequence.

    -  You could not link PSD files from the Source Browser. Fixed in Media Composer v8.8.4

    -  The Media Composer source monitor would display the “Capture in Progress” slide for portions of the media that were no longer in progress.

    -  Searching with PhraseFind was not working properly with Chinese and Japanese.

    -  In some instances, you might have received an exception error when linking AVC Intra from a Canon C300 MKll camera.

    -  In some instances, the track numbers set for audio clips did not match when performing an Auto-sequence.

    -  If you dragged the end of a take line up so it went over existing marks, then dragged it back down without letting go of mouse, the Script marks were deleted.

    -  Inserting or deleting lines of script text did not reposition slate thumbnails.

    ReadMe:  The ReadMe is posted to The Media Composer 8.x Documentation page on the Knowledge Base.

    Re: Media Composer 8.8.4 NOW AVAILABLE - 6 June 2017

    I did a full uninstall of MC8.8.3 before performing the installation of 8.8.4.

    But when installing MC8.8.4, the installation creates a strange 718 bytes file located in C: Users. The file doesn't have an extension and is called by my name (Sylvain).

    When I restart my computer, Windows will ask "Choose the program you want to use to open this file". So, to solve this issue, I renamed the file by adding the extension .txt

    I opened the file and it is related to “Avid Editor Transcode Status” and “Stopping Editor Transcode Services”

    Same here with a 'Jeroen' file. It is just a log file. I must admit that the location of the file is bizar and probably an 'ooops' of some sort.
