    Can't work with that version. When zooming timeline, it's dissapearing and appears a message.

    Exception: CORE_SEGMENT_NOT_FOUND, classname:TLtrack, methodName:DrawSegDupZones

     

    And it's depends from the height of video track. With narrow tracks everything is fine but with thick ones appears that bug.

    Very glitchy so far, to the point of being unworkable.

    I updated to 2018.7 and OS 10.13.5 last night. This morning, when I try to play in the source window my whole computer freezes for about 10 or 12 seconds. Background music stops, mouse freezes...then everything comes back. It happens irregularly, but frequently. No crashes yet -- but very very slow going. Grateful I don't have a deadline today.

    Same here. My CPU usage goes to max after 10 seconds or so and then avid starts dropping frames. Never had a problem before. Using an iMac.

    AVID, could you tell me where to download an older version please. I can't edit with this one.

    I imagine the issue has something to do with the new live timeline features.
