Media Composer will only read media if there is a specific file path on a hard drive. That file path is the same for both Macs and PCs though the slashes go in different directions. From the root level of any hard drive your media must be as follows:. Otherwise, the file path has to be exactly like this down to the character.

Note: there is no space in MediaFiles. If your file path is incorrect, fix it. Once the file path is fixed, launch Media Composer. Sometimes Media Composer likes to ignore the database files it has for one reason or another.

Delete them. In my shared storage environment, my computer is named AVID4. The other systems in my shared storage environment are AVID1. Media Composer will now re-index your media. A couple dialogue boxes will automatically appear on launch. This may take a few minutes depending on the amount of media. Chances are your media is back online.

Media Composer uses User Profiles so that an editor can change preferences, screen layouts, keyboard shortcuts and other settings so the preferred look and feel is always the same. Occasionally, User Profiles get corrupted causing a wide variety of issues. Some examples include not allowing you to import an alpha channel on an image, or continually defaulting new audio files to OMF media instead of MXF media.

With the guess-and-check formula, you work the problem backwards to try to find the answer. You can do the same thing in Media Composer to find a corrupt clip. If you have a corrupt clip, Media Composer should give you an error and not copy it to the Source Monitor.

If it does copy to the Source Monitor, you more than likely do not have a corrupt clip. So we need to narrow in on it. Keeping all the tracks selected, put an in-point at the beginning of your timeline and an out-point halfway through the sequence. This is where you start guessing at an answer. If no error, do the same thing for the second half of the sequence. Once you find the half with the error do the same thing again.

From here, use the Match Frame tool which is found in the Command Palette to individually load each clip around that time into the Source Monitor.

However, when I try today it just says “Your trial period has ended” and gives me several options to pick from, when I choose Electronic Activation which is what I used to activate the license in the first place it just brings me to Avid Link which shows me a screen saying that Avid MC is open.

Then when I try open it from the ‘Products’ tab in Avid Link it just brings me back to the original message on MC of “Your trial period has ended”. So I’m stuck in this cycle. Please can you help resolve this so that I am not wasting the time I have with this annual license and so I can finish my project in time to meet my deadline. Thank you, Solomon.

First thing is to make sure you’re on the latest version of Avid Link, which is If you are, the next thing to try is when you double click Media Composer to open it, immediately hold down the ‘w’ key, which should bring up the box that asks how you want to activate Media Composer, or if you want to run in trial mode.

If that doesn’t work, create a case on the MyAvid support portal and someone will get to you asap. He is Avid’s customer advocate, and can help you.

I have tried all of those things already unfortunately as well as uninstalling Avid MC and reinstalling it, restarting my computer several times. Yet nothing seems to work. I just saw that the original poster had the same problem I am having. This just kicked in for me this morning. And, while I can work, the extra steps to get into the app are going to be a giant pain in the butt going forward.

Trial Period Ended – Avid Community – Do more, stress less

 

The other two systems we updated are not having this issue since the trial period was never used, but the same installer was used on all of them. I have a thread going with Tech support now, but I wanted to say that reinstalling with the full version did not fix the problem. This doesn’t make any sense to me. AFAIK, there is no “trial” version or “full” version. It’s the same software, it just depends if you use a license code to activate it or not.

We have the same problem on our symphony system. We had to use the trial version for a few days because Avid had a typo on our system ID in the versioner file. That has been resolved but now we get the same error you are. I talked to avid support and they don’t have a solution for me yet. The licensing is held in the settings folder. Delete everything but the ones that say default.

Then relaunch. If you are dongle licensed, then it should be happy. I have the same problem as the original post and tried going to the settings folder as suggested by someone- except for I could not find such a folder under Media Composer. I found a settings folder under avid xpress pro, but I upgraded to MC 3. I have upgraded the dongle and it recognizes the dongle. I had a project I was desperate to finish so I did use the trial version of MC 3.

I now hit ok when it tells me the activation has failed and then a dialog box with options comes up and I hit the “I am upgrading from a previous version” button and mc loads. When the program loads it says it is registered in my name so it seems that the activation ought to have worked. How can I get rid of that “activation has failed” and “the trial version period is over” messages?
