Performing a Background Render
This release supports rendering effects in the background while you continue to work in Media Composer. Once a job is submitted into the background, you can continue to work and check the render progress in the Background Queue window. Once the job is completed, the sequence will link to the new pre-computes and the effect icons will reflect the rendered state.
A Favorite Bin is a bin that you can easily access regardless of what project you are in. A Favorite Bin can hold any items that a regular bin can hold, such as clips, sequences, effects templates, and titles. You might want to create a Favorite Bin to hold often used music, transitions, and templates. A Favorite Bin can reside on local or shared storage. You can create multiple Favorite Bins. The list of Favorite Bins is stored in the current user setting. You can choose to have the Favorite Bins folder appear at the top or the bottom of the Project Window.
Select Project Window Improvements
The Select Project Window has been expanded to allow for longer project names. Additionally, when you click to select a project, a project summary for that project will appear in the Select Project Window.
Searching for Marker Comment Text
You can search for text within the Marker Comment field across all sequences and master clips within the project, including opened or closed bins.
Image Cache Setting
With this release, Media Composer now allows you to establish how much memory can be utilized for caching thumbnails in memory as well as disk. Caching images in memory allows thumbnails to quickly be recalled as you load or scroll in bins or sequences. Saving them to the disk cache allows them to be recalled after relaunching the application and can avoid the need for the application to have to create them again.
Quick Filter in the Project Window
A quick filter text box has been added to the Project window. This allows you to quickly filter out bins in the Project window leaving only those bins in a flattened view that match the filter criteria. This is helpful when you have a large number of bins in a project and want to quickly filter for specific bins.
Warning When Changing the Project Rate
In previous releases, you did not receive a warning message when changing the project rate. With this release of the editing application, if you change the project rate you will receive a warning message. For example if you change a project from 50i to 25p, you will receive the following message: WARNING: Effective image update rate changing from 50 fps to 25 fps. This message is informational. Click OK to continue.
Support for DPX Files with DMF
With this release, DPX files are now supported with Dynamic Media Folders. The AIS (Avid Image Sequencer) Settings have be en added to the DMF Profile editor and allow users to specify Reel and timecode extraction as well as establish starting frame count and FPS. See “Creating a Dynamic Media Folder” in the Help.
When you are working with DPX files and DMF, drop the folder containing the .dpx files into the DMF watch folder rather than individual .dpx files. This will allow each group of consecutive dpx files in that folder to be managed as individual master clips.
