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, 2020.x or 2021.x until further notice.

Alll dTective® and ClearID® effects work as intended with Media Composer 2019.x, 2020.x & 2021.x, however, “archive-R” currently does NOT support them.  Furthermore, 2020.x introduces Avid’s new Universal Media Engine (UME) replacing QuickTime, which may also impact your workflows; UME is FAST!

archive-R supports ALL versions of Media Composer up to 2018.12.14 (released December, 2020).

If you were unaware, Avid is now supporting three long-term support branches; 2019.x, 2020.x and 2021.x

As of MC 2020.9 Windows 7 is no longer supported.
