    I just installed MC 5.5. When applying the color correction tool I always get a green dot as icon. Not the colored icon from older versions. Is there any way to get the icon back instead of the green dot?

    Not sure what is happening here. The green dot in the centre of a clip signifies a motion adapter. It means that the format of the clip differs from that of the sequence and Avid is changing it in some way to match.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately I cannot provide you with a hardcopy. I am sitting here at my Broadcasters set. No way to get something out.
    But it is wired. Sometimes I get the green spot (the same as with motion clips) and a green line under the clip. Some minutes later the old icon for color correction. I cannot find a rule when I get what.
    Any ideas????

    In Symphony, you get Green Line and dot for source color correction, blue for Local (timeline) corrections, and the familiar color correction icon for color corrections that go on top of other effects. Was this project ever opened on a Symphony?

    It has never been on a Symphony. It comes from MC 5.x. I am using the MC 5.5.3.
