Growing File

  • Growing file sometimes becomes media offline while editing
  • Growing file sometimes goes offline while editing


  • When capture codec is set to DNxHD 145, clips captured at 1080i setting are created at 1080p.
  • If Capture panel and Edit to Tape panel are open at the same time, Capture panel will fail to capture video.
  • Capture Device in the capture window becomes Offline after closing the Edit to Tape panel
  • Crash on batch capture with tape deck connected via SDI. Error message: [….SrcManualRecorderUtilities.cpp-348]


  • [FCP XML Export] No audio with clip if track is muted at export with XML
  • OMF Export does not trim audio properly if audio comes from multicamera sequences
  • FCP XML’s sometimes lose the correct output assignment and panning information on import.
  • Sequence previews are used during movie export regardless of the “Use Previews” Export Settings option being selected or not.
  • Some muxed h264 CBR exports are longer than the original source material
  • Duration of H264 encodes is shorter than the source by up to a second.

Smart Render: Media from some decks does not smart render properly

Control Surface

  • Faders on control surface do not work with an adaptive clip in a multichannel sequence.
  • Some control surface faders for Clip Mixer are not updated when switching between sequences for Clip Volume value of 0.0
  • Toggle Control Surface Clip Mixer Mode button assignment provides no visual feedback.
  • Mute Buttons do not update correctly for some control surface interfaces

Edit to Tape

  • Edit to Tape Panel: after edit is complete, edit data remains stored in deck, and deck often remains in Insert or Assemble mode. Causes tape export failure on some decks.
  • Edit to Tape panel: “Delay Movie Start by [x] frames” is not properly honored in some case
  • Audio tracks in Edit to Tape panel do not default  to A1 through A4 when switch from “Insert” to “assemble,” then back to Insert
  • Export to Tape panel: when switching from Assemble to Insert, all audio channels are selected, even when the channels are unsupported.

Transmit: Occasional crash on toggling Transmit during timeline playback [Mac only]


  • After external I/O device is disconnected, CTI sometimes fails to move
  • after stopping playback, AVC-Intra and DVCPro HD files take 15 – 20 seconds to render frames for playback
  • Some XDCAM QT MOV clips show Media Pending graphic for extended period and exhibit poor scrubbing and playback

  • Poor quality audio when using some USB microphones in conjunction with a capture card
  • Audio distortion with audio enabled on some capture cards
  • Adaptive clips exported to Audition lose audio when channels are remapped.

  • Crash with error message “[….SrcContentAudioSequenceContent.cpp-903]”


  • Timecode for some DPX clips is not handled properly
  • Premiere does not read correct start timecode from .mp4 files from some cameras

Merged Clips: “Reveal in Project” does not work with Merged Clips


  • Media not relink-able after converting a project from CS6 to CS7: Error message “Cannot Link Media: The selected file cannot be linked because it has 2 audio channels and the clip was created with 1 audio channels”
  • “Log Note” in Clip Metadata is lost after relinking

Sequence Settings: New Sequence from Clip: Some stereo clips yield a sequence with audio set to 10 Channel Mono


  • The Timeline panel does not redraw correctly after audio keyframes are deleted.
  • Relevant menu options are unavailable when an empty timeline has focus.
  • Record Voice Over does not work when an Out point is set in Timeline
  • New audio tracks initialize at minimum track height in cases where they should be expanded
  • Crash on undoing a razor edit with with multiple clips selected, with error message “../Src/Sequence/PersistentGroup.cpp-108” or “../Inc/Sequence/TrackItemGroup.h-215”


  • Upon flattening a multicam sequence, transitions are applied on the wrong layers.  Can lead to crash with error message […SrcSequenceActionSequenceAddTransitionAction.cpp-57″.]
  • “Extend Previous Edit”: command can result in incorrect media being used.
  • Duplicate frame indicators are shown in Multicam edits where clips from different cameras have overlapping timecode
  • When a given multicam sequence is already loaded in the Source monitor, the Match Frame command does not auto-select the correct camera
  • Multicam project lost all multicamera source synchronization after re-recording cuts then save/reopen project

Sync by Audio

  • When syncing by audio fails, user receives no notification
  • If a track in the Timeline contains multiple copies of a source clip, then Synchronize by Audio can sync to wrong clip
  • Syncing by audio can move audio track items that are on the same track in the Timeline but not selected
