    Would be fab to be able to view the genre of the audio tracks.  At the minute you can see name, file size, file type, date, tags, rating and duration.

    Re: What is missing in Avid Studio?

    Sylvain P:

    - Multicam editing

    - Quick Transition tool, like in Liquid

    - The possibility to have source and program monitor at the same time.

    - Bring back the multiple sequences.

     

    More professional tools, in future versions.

    - Eventually, P2 support and XDCamEX support.

    - A timewarp, time-remapping.

    - Secondary color correction.

    Exactly! Yes

    1. A tickmark in the Library on scenes/clips that are used in the project's timeline.

    2. Ripple transitions.

    I am aware of there being workarounds but those need more time and/or mouse clicks. 

     

    What is the workaround for #1?  This feature is important...especially when you have large projects. Crying

    - The ability to view the source timecode of the clips that are on the timeline.

    - The possibility to put a video or audio effect on the track header.

    Creating a tag named: "Used in project" and applying that tag to scenes/clips/photos when you add them to the timeline would be one way to work around the problem.

    Furthermore using that tag as a filter would allow you to get only used or only not used scenes/clips/stills in the library.

    that's a massive amount of effort to only partially offset some incredibly obvious and egregious omissions from AS.

    Until and if these issues are addressed and patched, AS seems unsuited to complicated edits.

    Yes I agree and that's why I called it a workaround.   Wink

    Re: What is missing in Avid Studio?

    Hmmm. For almost every video I upload, I use the Grab feature in S12.1 to make a HD 16:9 thumbnail still. I use it to extend frames for dissolves. I use it to save frames as stills, since the HDV quality is quite good.

    I'm awaiting my AS disk, and wondering why I have to give this up.

    yes -- thats another PS feature that I use regularly.

    It seems for some time, at least for me, that I will continue to do my editing in PS14 -- and perhaps use AS for  multitrack montage and some effects etc.

    Avid needs to clearly state its recognition that essential parts of AS are not now in the program -- and decisively declare its intention to soon issue a patch for these missing features

    That won't happen, even if they completely agree with your sentiments.  No software developer will give out marketing information for competitive reasons.  However, from a customer service perspective, I would hope that these comments and identified shortcomings are noted and acted upon by the appropriate people in Avid.

    Re: What is missing in Avid Studio?

    I am trying to 'grab' a still from the timeline and I have seen the advice on using the 'Export' button but this seems to take it as a movie!  Can you provide a 'step by step', please.

    • set the scrubber in the export window at the position you want to grab the still
    • press i to set the inpoint
    • select export to file
    • select type = image (or picture) I've translated from a German system
    • if needed select a preset ar customize it
    • click Export and give a filename

    Thanks. Setting in-point was my missing part. At times one starts to fondly remember Studio14.

    I'm glad AS has this capability -- but this sequence of steps seems much more complicated and less organic than Pinnacle Studio's "Grab"  frame feature.

    Why change from an existing simple yet powerful functionality -- to one that requires 6 steps and needs to be explained because its not natural or user friendly ??

    Re: What is missing in Avid Studio?

    Did you ever count the steps needed in Pinnacle Studio to have the same result?

    1. set scrubber to the position want
    2. select "Grab Image" from the Toolbox menu
    3. click "record"
    4. click "save" and give determine path and filename

    But I agree with you, it could be more simple in AS.

    In theory:

    1. set scrubber to the position want
    2. click the frame grab button located over the timeline and determine path and filename
    3. done

    Re: What is missing in Avid Studio?

    Re snapshots,

    When I thought that I had found a shortcoming in MediaComposer that was available in Liquid, a very worthy contributor on that forum suggested that I 'google' the term 'frame shots'.

    Solved my problemSmile

    Only Liquid 8.0, other wise it's perfect as Studio 16

    Ingolf, I was also missing the 'inpoint' step, many thanks.

    Ability to combine clips appears to be missing in AS

    If you use timed scene detection on import - I can't then find the ability to combine scenes as required. e.g. if you import with 10sec scenes and then find you need a transition very close to the start of a scene,  Studio easily allowed you to combine scenes and then recut to suit. Combining scenes appears a no go in AS which to me sort of makes setting a fixed scene duration on import rather risky. 

     Am I missing something, or just need to re-think my workflow?

    Re: What is missing in AVID Studio ?

    Hello,

    Regarding "What is missing in AVID Studio", I done a full comparison and installed AVID Studio on a brand new computer, to check if there are some differences between upgrade and new install. There are few differences, I will post them later on (some files are changed/missing)...

    For the moment, if you are insterested, I present the number of effects that you should have. It's in FAQ #5 here.
