Avid Xpress Pro / Media Composer Real-Time Playback

Avid%20Timeline.gif

Have you ever wondered what the different colored bars mean at the bottom of your timeline after playback ends. Well, those little bars are an indicator about the difficulties that your avid application is having during playback. This can help you determine the important parts to render or help you find problems tha may come up later during playback.

Red bars mark the ranges where the Avid editing application was unable to display frames.

Yellow bars mark the ranges that caused difficulty for the Avid editing application during playback because of processor limitations. No frames were dropped; this is only a warning.

Blue bars mark the location of frames that caused difficulty for the Avid editing application because of disk speed limitations. No frames were dropped; this is only a warning.

If you find that your playback information often includes blue bars, it is likely that replacing your media disks with faster drives will improve the Avid editing application's ability to play back effects in real time.
