    MC won't stop playback

    Anyone else experiencing this since .8? 


    I am playing a sequnce and then the MC shuts me out and keeps playing and won’t let me stop. No amount of clicking anywhere in any window in the application or outside of it or even hiding it will force it to stop.
    Force-quitting gets me out, of course. But if I haven’t saved recently, that’s  a terrible choice.
    Instead, if power down a drive it needs for playback it chokes and stops and lets me back “in”.

    Re: MC won't stop playback

    I had this problem.  I believe it is the "live timeline" that is the problem.  For me it seemed to be because of waveforms being on.  The Avid expends CPU cycles on waveform and playback and has no time left for you!  This is my theory, not necessarily the truth.

    I found I could sometimes get out of the loop by pressing my hotkey for turning off waveforms, or clicking the close bin button, or trying to quit.   Eventually a dialog box or "saving..." would interrupt the playback.

    I downgraded to 2018.5 because of this.

    Have it as well, turning off waveform seems to help... Annoying though!

    Correction, not displaying waveforms doesn´t stop this from happening.

    I have to drag this thread back up, because this issue is happening on our show. Editor has complained to me about it and trying to see if there is a solution. We've both had it happen when playing back JKL stop functioning. 

    His settings are brand-new built-in version 2018.10.

    Ah, nope. I still have the issue. Turning the hardware off doesn´t help either.

    Restarting MC every 20 minutes, it´s no fun. I´m reinstalling an old version. Please fix this.

    Re: MC won't stop playback

    I can cofirm this. MC 2018.9, two systems until now.

    On one system we had this with music tracks, MC becomes unresponive and plays the music in loop and on the other system some clips have to play till the end. You can't do anything during playback, MC becomes responive again after the clip reaches the end.

    Both MacPro 2013 with MojoDX. MacOS 10.13.6 with MC2018.9.
