    This release addresses several bugs since the last release, including:

    - When in Bin text view, you might have seen a horizontal row of black artifacts when resizing the bin.
    - When in the Effect Editor, pressing the period key would re4set the slider value to zero.

    + FOR MORE INFORMATION:

    Re: Media Composer v2018.1 -- NOW AVAILABLE

    Hi

    I'm trying to install MC18.1 and iMac hangs on the reboot. Won't boot at all.

    This is on a new iMac - 3.6Ghz i7 with 32GB RAM, Mac OS 10.13.3.

    I had previously installed  Nexis Client v7.10 and PT v18.1. Both apps functioned fine.

    Any advice appreciated

    Haven't heard of an issue with the full computer not rebooting.

    Have you tried safe mode or recovery mode?

    Safe mode stalls at the same point - about 3/4 of the way along the progress bar.

    Tried resetting NVRAM and SMC - no difference.

    Tried booting in "verbose mode" - last line says "IOConsole users g!)ScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0"

    There appears to be no local recovery partition, and I can't boot system to enable Wifi or set ethernet connection :(


    Going to have to re-install from a bootable USB drive, and install all over again.....

    Yeah, I'm guessing your issue is larger than MC. Let us know how the reinstall works.
