    Fellow Bovines who know MUCH more than me…

    WHAT does this mean and what, if any action, does it mean I should do?

    Set persistent image cache limit: 200.0 MB in /Users/Shared/AvidMediaComposer/AvidImageCache
    WARNING: Requested LocateBuffer size 2048MB is the same as current size 2048MB.

    Version of Operating System?
    Version of Media Composer?
    What were you doing at the time to create the error message?

    Mac OS10.14.5

    MC 2019.8.0

    Had the Console window open. It did not open on its own.

    Had just completed re-creating multiple directory dbs in attempt to recover several Media Offline files which seemed to have just vanished on their own from a previous project while leaving most of a timeline in place. (Which didn’t work.)

    Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Hmmmm… didn’t help as much I would have liked, but maybe others have an idea. In recreating the db, was it refreshing existing links or just AMA linking anew and going from there?

    All .xmf files. No AMA.

    If you look at the MediaTool, is all the media there?
