    Avid MC5 doesn't play and crashes

    Hi, I'm having a bit of an issue, I just installed Avid MC 5.5 on my Mac Book Pro, it opens just fine and I can navigate my projects perfectly, change settings, import new media ... but as soon as I try to play any of it, in the timeline or viewing monitor Avid stops working, it gives me the spinning wheel of death and I'm forced to quit.

    Can someone help please, I ran the trial version on the same computer for a month and it worked just fine ...

    Thanks :-)

    not an apple type of person... but as I understand it OSX 10.7 is Lion???? then you need 5.5.3

     

    Win8 64bit, SSD systemdrives - MC 8 + Symphony option, Nitris DX, i7 3930K (GA-X79-UD7), 16GB, Quadro 2000 - Symphony 6.0.3, DeckLink Studio, HP Z400... [view my complete system specs]

    MC 5.5.2 is not qualified to run on Lion.  MC 5.5.3 is, but only 10.7, not 10.7.1 or 10.7.2.  At a minimum you should upgrade to 5.5.3.  If that doesn't help, you'll need to roll back to 10.7 temporarily.

    Symphony 8.8.x w/Avid Nitris DX, HP z420, Windows 10, QT v7.7.x, Hexa Core 3.2GHz, 16GB RAM, nVidia Quadro Series 2000 w/353.82. 2TB Boot, 2 x 3TB internal... [view my complete system specs]

    10.7 is Lion yes. I will try to up grade my Avid and/or change Lion.

    Thanks so much !
