[Avid-L2] Re: MC 7 first issue on test drive

 

Yes.  I started the thread and the issue was resolved by a total manual uninstall of MC7 and reinstall.


Here is the procedure given to me by Avid support:

  it would be worth trying a manual/full uninstall of the Editing software. Once this is done, you can reinstall and see if the performance is improved.    PLEASE DEACTIVATE YOUR SOFTWARE AND OPTIONS BEFORE PERFORMING THESE STEPS!    These instructions will remove Licensing files as well as Avid License Control which could be dangerous if you have any other products installed!  PLEASE USE WITH CAUTION.    Below are the steps/files to remove your Editor software from the system. These should be done after running the Media Composer or Symphony Uninstaller located in the Avid_Uninstallers folder.    In Lion and SnowLeopard we use the receipts database.  To see what pkgs(packages) are installed, please enter this command in the terminal      pkgutil --pkgs|grep com.avid      From a terminal window, you'll need to do a sudo to remove these:      (replace "Symphony" for MediaComposer where appropriate)  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.MediaComposerapplications.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.MediaComposerlibrary.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.MediaComposersystem.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.MediaComposeruninstaller.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.avidcodecspe  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.avidfilmscribe.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.avidlogexchange.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.edlmanager.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.sharedcomponents.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.paceap.pkg.eden.licensed  sudo pkgutil --forget com.paceap.pkg.InterLokExtensions  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.licensecontrol.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.osx.utilities.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.DXDriver.pkg    sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.tmp.thirdparty.pkg  sudo pkgutil –-forget com.avid.tmp.pace.pkg  sudo pkgutil --forget com.avid.Interplay.EditorTranscode.pkg        Folders/Files to Manually Remove:       /Applications / Avid / EditorTranscode      /Applications / Avid Media Composer (or Avid Symphony)      /Applications / Avid_Uninstallers / Avid Media Composer (or Avid Symphony)      /Applications / Utilities / Avid_Utilities  (**This will remove Avid License Control**)        /System / Extensions / Digi*.kext, Avid*.kext        /Library / CFMSupport / DigiCFMShim        /Library / Applications Support / Avid  (this will remove Avid Licensing files)      /Library / Applications Support / Digidesign        /Library / StartupItems / Digi*.*      /Library / StartupItems / Digi*.*       /Library / LaunchAgents / com.avid.interplay.dmfservice.plist     /Library / LaunchAgents / com.avid.interplay.editortranscode.plist     /Library / LaunchAgents / com.avid.transcodeserviceworker.plis       /Library / LauchDaemons / com.avid.interplay.editorbroker.plist     /Library / LauchDaemons / com.avid.interplay.editortranscodestatus.plist    If the icon is still in the dock, you should be able to right+click and "Remove from Dock" and it will disappear.

RE: Re: [Avid-L2] RE: Re: OT: Kammes makes the local newz....

 

We had no idea this was happened, and since it was hosted on Vimeo there was no way to monetize it anyway. Learned a lot from that.

[Avid-L2] Re: OT: Toslink vs. HDMI Arc for audio monitoring?

 

Manufacturers tend to implement ARC differently. The behavior of that HDMI port on your monitor might be defined in a setup screen -- or it may be automatically "sensed" based on what is connected to it. For more information, you might want to read this:

http://hdguru.com/what-is-hdmi-arc-and-what-does-it-do-for-your-hdtv/

It is true that TOSLINK does not support the bandwidth required for lossless versions of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Depending on your setup, you might want to consider purchasing an inexpensive HDMI-compatible AV Receiver (Denon is a good place to start your research) that will act as your HDMI switch, that will support lossless surround formats -- and that might provide some level of automated calibration (although manual calibration is typically superior).

Depending on the actual source of your OTA programming (monitor or external box), you might still need to grapple with that OTA audio -- but, depending on your monitor's ARC implementation (see article linked above) and your AV Receiver's capabilities, that issue might be addressable using ARC from your monitor back to the AV Receiver.

We had an Editors' Lounge video go viral. The PreNAB panel of 2011 bagged 2 million views. All because of our predictions of what FCPX would be.

Nearly 1.2 million views now and that doesnt count the other sites that rip it and host it.

Wow I see Phillip but where's the rest of the Editor's Lounge crowd? Or did you make them all work behind the scenes? What would it have looked like in 8K? Hmmmm I wish my wedding had only cost 8K. Congrats and what a fun little video that brings me and I bet many back to their wedding day.
