    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.
