    Source Browser does not show media in text view

    Posted initaially in PC forum as OP was having same problem, but no answers thus far.

    I'm stumped. In exploring Media Composer | First, I accidentally deleted or removed all columns in Source Browser in Text View. Now nothing appears in Text View (Frame View works as expected; I can see media icons) and no way to restore columns-I've right-clicked all over the interface, nada.

    Tried trashing any settings file I could find. Updated MCF to 2020.12 from 2020.6; no change. I suspect it's a user setting, and I'd try to make a new User, but can't find how to do that, either, there doesn't seem to be the usual drop-down menu for Users.

    Any thoughts? Thx.

    Hi Chris,

      The settings should be in the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Avid Media Composer

    Hi, RalphC, thanks for the response. I'm on a Mac. Would you be referring to:

    Macintosh HD>Users>Shared>AvidMediaComposer>AvidUsers>MC1?

    I see a setting file there with my email address as the user name, which is the one that loads when I open a project, no opportunity to pick a different user, and no way to change it or make a new one in the Avid application. Maybe with MC First that is not an option?

    Within thie user folder inside the MC1 folder there is: MarqueeUserFiles folder (empty), a settings.xml file with my email address, an .ave file with my email addfress, MCState and Media Tool.avb.

    Which setting(s) file(s) should I delete to clear the problem I described having  in the Browser (no columns in Text view)?

    Assuming no one know the answer to this, at this point, I would like to escalate it to Avid Support. But can I do this for a "free" Avid application?

    thanks,

    Chris

    Re: Source Browser does not show media in text view

    I have solved this issue, sort-of. I backed up, then deleted my Settings.xml file in Shared-Avid Media Composer-Avid Users-MC1 folder (on a Mac).

    Upon re-launching MC First, a new settings file was created, and the Source Browser again showed columns in Text View. But I had to rebulid all my settings as there doesn't seem to be a way to import settings.

    I think this is possibly a bug, in that if you delete all columns by right-clicking on any column and deselecting all, you cannot get them back. 

    Now, if I could just get Quad Split to work in Multicam in the source monitor...
