  • 8.6 Source Browser extreme sluggishness

    I feel like a beta tester. Ever since AMA was introduced, the AMA, later Link setting defaulted to 'Automatically Link to volume'. This made sense in the beginning as all you could really do was mount a P2 card or XDCAM cartridge and let Media Composer process the links. These days, personally...

  • Media Composer UNC path support regression (Windows)

    Hello, Since the "Source Browser" was introduced in 8.6 it's apparently no longer possible to link files using UNC path. If I try to copy/past a UNC path in the Source Browser's address bar I get an "unsupported path" error message. Is there another way? (mounting the UNC...

  • Source browser wont link to H264 files

    MC 8.6.4 Windows 10 (Edit 3 in my specs) Client has sent me some H264 (.MP4) files, which I expected to be able to link to, however Source Browser says they cant be linked to. I transferred the project, on an external drive, to my MC 7.6.4 (Edit 1 in my specs) and the files linked and played fine. Moved...

  • Media Composer not Linking files properly in 8.6

    So, just posting for everyone's reference. I had a client that could see an XDCAM XAVC file properly. Weird part is that you could doubleclick on the file and it would load in the source monitor, but nothing else would work, couldn't link it or edit to a timeline. Eventually it would go offline...

  • Can't launch Source Browser

    MC on MBP 10.11.6 I can't seem to get the Source Browser to open up. I get a beachball and then "Not Responding" when I have to force quit. This evening I uninstalled MC using the provided uninstaller. It had been fully up to date at that point, can't remember the exact...

  • Avid 8 Source Browser Crashes, along with Media Cache Setting

    When I attempt to link to media via the Source Browser, Avid freezes and then crashes out. I have tried to change the Cache size in the Media Cache setting, but this also does not open and just crashes Avid. Are there any suggestions on fixing this?

  • Re: AMA and Link replaced by SOURCE BROWSER

    Thanks and I appreciate your comments, however I've been cutting XDCAM footage on Avid for at least three years for CBS so it looks like the problem is a fundemental flaw with Avid's newer releases including 8.x To put it in perspective professionally, I've been cutting on Media Composer...

  • Using Source Browser to Link to media on a network share

    Hi Team, I'm having issues adapting our workflow to this new Source Browser in Avid 8.6, and I'm hoping I'm missing something really obvious. We usually create a share on our Evo server > Create a Shortcut > Store the shortcut in a folder called "EVO" on our C:\ e.g. "C...

  • Re: Refresh Source Browser

    Did my first upgrade to 8.6.1 from 8.5.3 on Win7. We operate in a completely shared environment. We use a number of NAS systems for all of our non-Avid media. If I launch Avid and then mount a NAS share as a Windows drive the Source Browser will not see the drive. I have tried the suggestions from this...

  • Source browser lockup
