dTective & Media Composer 2019.x and 2020.x

Ocean Systems recommends that dTective® users leveraging archive-R, hold off on upgrading their systems to Media Composer 2019.x or 2020.x until further notice.

Initial testing indicates that all dTective® and ClearID® effects work as intended with Media Composer 2019.x & 2020.x, however, “archive-R” currently does NOT support either.  Furthermore, 2020.x introduces Avid’s new media engine replacing QuickTime, which may also impact your workflows.

archive-R supports ALL versions of Media Composer up to 2018.12.12 (released August, 2020).

If you were unaware, Avid is now supporting three long-term support branches; 2018.x, 2019.x, and 2020.x
