Media Composer Generates iXML Metadata When Creating WAV Media
WAV media generated using Audio Export, as well as managed media in OMF (Wave) format, will include iXML metadata that follows the iXML standard as published by Gallery UK and commonly used in audio field recorders. Included in the iXML are certain audio-relevant bin columns, such as scene and take information, markers, track names, and a SMPTE standard unique media identifier. This data can be used by downstream applications. Pro Tools, for example, will bring in the Scene, Take, and Track Name information.

Refreshing Locked Scripts
Your Avid editing application uses a locking mechanism to help you keep track of who is currently working in a shared script. Only one user can edit the script, but multiple users can read the script This release includes two new script lock icon colors and status updates in the script titles to help you see the status of the Avid shared scripts.

This feature will only be enabled when the Project is stored on an Avid NEXIS or Avid ISIS workspace.

A new script lock icon color (yellow) has been added that indicates the owner of the shared script has made changes to the script. You will also notice that the script title provides a status in parentheses indicating that the locked script has been modified. If you click the yellow icon, the script refreshes and the new refreshed script displays the updated content and returns the icon red.

A new script lock icon color (blue) has been added that indicates that the owner of the shared script lock has released the lock and the script is now available for read/write. If you click the blue icon, you now control the script and the icon turns green. You can make changes in the script until you release the lock or close the script.

You can release the lock by Alt + clicking the green icon.

In addition, a Cancel option has been added to the dialog when you choose to close a locked script.
  • Save Script As - choose if you want to save the script including any changes as a new script.
  • Don’t Save - choose if you do not want to save any changes you might have made.
  • Cancel - choose if you want to keep the locked script open and then decide where to save any script changes.
Color Adapters Listed in the Effect Editor
With this release, when editing in the Timeline, color adapters applied to clips are listed in the Effect Editor. This makes it easier to see which color adapter has been applied to clips. Previous releases simply displayed “Color Adapter” in the Effect Editor.
