Fusion Connect 9.0.2 with Media Composer 2018.5?

PostMon Jun 04, 2018 7:11 pm

Anyone here have any problems running Fusion Connect 9.0.2 with Media Composer 2018.5?

I can't seem to get it to work - generates the media on the MC side but when I click 'Edit' to have MC open Fusion, nothing happens - it doesn't even try to do anything from all appearances.

I've got Fusion Studio 9.0.2 installed w/ dongle. I also have Resolve 15b4 installed on this machine. VFX Connect from Resolve seems to work fine with Resolve 9.0.2 but not the automation from Media Composer.

Looking for confirmation from someone using both MC 2018.5 and Fusion Studio.

Thanks folks

I just reproduced this issue on my other Windows 10 machine so it's not machine specific (they do both have Resolve 15 b4 installed so there's that - no idea if this could be related). Hard to know if it's broken on the Avid side or the BMD side).

I have this issue confirmed by someone over in the Avid community. Speculation is that it is somehow related to recent changes in BM desktop software compatible with MC 2018.5 and the DNxIO hardware. Not sure if BMD monitors these threads but if so it would be nice to hear some feedback.

I don't use any external hardware so what I'm seeing may be just the software side effect of an only incidentally related change by either BMD or more than likely Avid. What a crock.

Steve,
Just curious. Is this problem new as of MC '18.5? What was the last version of MC w/which FuCon worked properly?

TIA,

Looks like it's working with 2018.5 (my mistake). I believe it's broken with a beta release after 2018.5. Let's see what happens when a real release hits the streets.

OK - now that Media Composer 2018.7 is released publicly I see that it has the described problem with Fusion Connect. Evidently this is a bug in Fusion Connect (go figure).
