    I'm having a major issue with group clips. I cannot get the command "Next in group" or "Previous in Group" to work. No matter if it is an icon or a keyboard shortcut.

    Thanks Marianna.

    I've narrowed down the issue and there is a work around.

    Problem: You cannot toggle a group clip in the source side if there is no sequence loaded in the record side.

    Solution: Load any sequence or create a new one.

    So for majority of time this is not a major issue.

    Re: Media Composer v8.8.2 | NOW AVILABLE

    Thx for your reply!

    this is the message I get (in swedish):  - Avid MC has unexpectedly been terminated -  "send crash report"

     

    I have a nested clip on videotrack 2 with two filters (3D PIP and Color Correction) - when I try to add a third filter (Blur) the system crashes.

    I´m running an Imac 5K 27", 32 RAM, AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4096 MB , macOS Sierra
