    One thing I didnt ask you....   are you also using Pro Tools?  If so, users were advised NOT update to this release if you use the Video Satellite feature with Pro Tools.

    I am going to have your case looked at more closely....

    you can download 2018.5 from the download center - it is at the very bottom of the MC folder.

    Re: Media Composer v2018.7 -- NOW AVAILABLE!

    After a couple uninstalls and reinstalls (using Avid apps) and removing some cache files, the problem persists. I downloaded MC 2018.5 and it too lags badly with playing - so it must be the OSX update itself that caused the problem (10.13.6). I discovered I can scrub the timeline my moving the mouse, but playing with hitting the play button, spacebar or jkl editing basically is so slow to make editing unfeasable.

    Hello :)

    Just popping my head in to say that I'm also unable to use this version, but not because of sluggishness. When playing down any timeline, this happens almost immediately...

    So I guess I'll be rolling back to .5 as well!

    I'm also seeing in other threads that people are talking about a 2018.7.1 patch? I am not seeing this patch in Application Manager?

    Head to the download center - log in to your My Avid and then click on the DL center and open the MC folder.  2018.7.1 is there.  It is also located in your MY Avid if your plan is still valid.

    Thank you, RobertM, fresh user settings do indeed fix this problem!

    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction! However, now that everything is going okay with fresh user settings I think I'll hold off unless any other problems pop up :)

    Ah, *** it... turns out this is still happening with fresh user settings!

     

    I'll try installing the patch over the weekend :)

    Re: Media Composer v2018.7 -- NOW AVAILABLE!

    Getting Segmentation fault often.  Might have something to do with Safari?

    When I change to Safari it crashes (not always). Can't figure it out, yet.

    Crashes also when I switch to other tools like Word.

    Re: Media Composer v2018.7 -- NOW AVAILABLE!

    2018.7.1 is still wonky, the patch hasn't fixed all the issues. Having very frequent dropped audio frames and timeline sluggishness, even when playing very simple sequences (like 1 track of audio only, for example). I'm going to downgrade back to 2018.5 for a second time, and wait for the next patch.

    I am on a 2017 iMac, 4.2 ghz quad core, 32 gb ram
