    Difficulty Exporting

    I have AvidMediaComposer|First and can't seem to export my final sequence. Unlike in the past when I could go into File>Output>Export, all I can find is a "publish to" option. I attempted to "publish to" youtube, my desktop, and a SD card but every time Avid crashed immediately after I clicked ok. I have tried transcoding, doing V/A mixdown, and changing the video dimenisions between H.264 and DNxHD, but nothing seems to make a difference. Long story short, is there a quick and easy export option like in the 2018 version, or do I need to do something further? Could it have something to do with using the free "First" version rather than Media Composer? In the past I was using Media Composer 2018 on a Mac desktop in my school, now I am using 2021.5 First on my macbook pro.

    MC First has limitations over regular MC so yes you have less options. But it shoukd still work.

    You should have to option to export as a file (even if its called publishing it)

    You haven't listed you system specs mac PC OS version etc.
