    The recording of the webminar can now be found at https://www.avid.com/online-learning-webinars Personally I'm looking forward to Baselight for Avid version 5.3 :-)
  • Re: On-screen countdown clock

    How long do you need the countdown to be? Could an animated progress bar do the job? That can be created with a Paint Effect in a minute and easily reused.

  • Re: Does the Video Quality Menu affect Mixdowns

    Short update: In version 2018.12.11 of Media Composer Video Quality does not - as far as I can tell - affect mixdown quality :-) Instead the precission (bit depth) the images are processed with is the same as for rendering: Media Tool --> Render --> Effects Processing.

  • Re: Background Bin Save is a disaster

    I've just been upgraded to 2018.12.11 and it seems that turning off background save from the console now is persistent.

Additionally the save progress box now includes the text

    [quote user="Telegram!"] Is there an easy to understand explanation for the Rekink settings: "Ignore Extension" and "Ignore Characters After..." ? What issue or workflow does it address?

    [quote user="jef"] I will try and replicate this if I have a chance this week. [/quote] Digging up an old thread here :-) Did you by any chance have a chance to replicate this? [quote user="jef"] Second you wrote about mixdown to an 8-bit codec. That should always create a banding issue with certain grads so I am not sure what you

    On streaming: BBC states that " High-quality BBC iPlayer programmes stream at up to 5 Mbps or megabits (5000 kbps) and our standard quality version is 1.5 Mbps (1500 kbps)."

  • Re: Adding a control point in Symphony without moving it...

    As Pat wrote it's not impressive with Symphony. I spoke to some guys from Avid about this at IBC some years back and they didn't seem to care the least :-/ I almost exclusively use Artist Color with Baselight for Avid and that works very well.
