    Sorry...I copied that from an older post and missed that. 10.13.6 is qualified; I changed the post to reflect that.

    any word on a blackmagic / Aja fix? 

     

    If so for BMD - which driver should we be on at this point?

    Re: Media Composer v2018.10 -- NOW AVAILABLE -- with Mojave support

    After 12hour testing with heavy timeline , BMD mini monitor and NEXIS - 

    1)2018.10 - is pretty much more responsive than all previous versions in multicam editing.

    2)continuous BMD playback is smoother than in many  previous versions

    3)Very stable version - no crashes

    4)Once happened - my blue position bar stopped moving  ( Bug Number: MCDEV-9676.) but in a minute works again - after app switch to desktop and back

    5)"Live timeline" in this version is more attractive and responsive

    6)"hide video" in source record monitor - does something weird

    7)NDi multicam mode playback - doesn't work. (tried just for fun)

    UPD:

    8)some interesting UI glitches introduced in this version -
    something like
    - if you drop many files in a bin to import - during import each new line in bin displays gfxtrash for a second
    - (once happened) red and yellow smart tool arrows (cursors) are not displayed while not dragging a segment  (FIX- restart app)

    9)blue timeline -position bar disappears (i can't see it on timeline) more often than in prev versions (FIX- restart app)

    10) in right click menu on timeline sometimes doesn't work 2nd level nested menus (at the same time when blue bar disappears or doesn't move) (FIX- restart app)

    11)sometimes  when i move mouse fast between windows up and down (timeline and source record mon for instance) application shows me a right-click menu. (FIX- restart app)

    looks like developers speeded up some UI things, but  some other new UI glitches was introduced too %)

    Re: Media Composer v2018.10 -- NOW AVAILABLE -- with Mojave support

    Well... All seemed to be well at first. But this version seems to hate it if I drag-trim a cut in the timeline. It crashes a lot. I've tried avoiding this by trimming with the keyboard, but dragging is very much a part of how I work. So sometimes I automatically drag a cut and BAM, it crashes (not everytime but a lot). I consider downgrading again.

    Hi Arnoud,

    have you seen this thread?: http://community.avid.com/forums/t/185854.aspx

    Sounds like the problem you are having - and that it is being taken care of.

    No, I hadn't. Thank you Cutyes. I was already doubting my Wacom driver, because I updated that at the same time! But now I now it's in this MC build.

    Cheers,
