macOS 10.14 Mojave Support

macOS 10.14 Mojave is due to be released on September 24.

At this stage it is not supported by any version of DIVA.

It is also unlikely, looking at previously releases, that Avid will support it out of the gate. From testing the Mojave betas with Media Composer, I would also expect this to be true.

We’re working hard to update DIVA Client to provide Mojave support, and hope to have something available before the end of the year.

Avid have released Media Composer 2018.10 today, with Mojave support.

At this time we still do not support it. We are working on a new cross platform client which will support it.

We’re hoping to have a beta of our new client this month. We need to get favourites implemented, and ensure the installer and update systems are working correctly first.

Today we got the new client running in a live site for the first time. We’ll be extending that test tonight and tomorrow, where we’ll run the new client in a heavy load situation for a day before we offer it elsewhere.

It appears that DAVE is no longer compatible with Mojave. With DAVE installed, when you mount a drive, you will get an error that “smb:// is not supported”.

Without DAVE installed when saving a Media Composer project you get a “this project is temporarily locked and cannot be saved” error message. The bins do get saved, and this error can be ignored, but it’s rather annoying.

If running our DIVAFS bin locking system then you will not receive this error.
It would mean converting all your drives to support bin locking. We also have minimum OS and MC requirements to run DIVAFS, so you will have to ensure your whole site is upgraded first to ensure it will work.
