    Media Composer 8.3 Crashing while importing Bars/Other Media

    I have the latest update for media composer installed on a 2012 MacPro 5,1 with Mountain Lion OS, 2.8GHz processor, 16gb of ram and a Nvidia Quadro 4000 video card.  Everytime I try to import bars the software crashes, and this is on a brand new projects.  I attempted to import a seperate video file with .h264 codec and it crashed as well. It even crashes when I import a screenshot I take from my computer desktop. 

    My next course of action is to reinstall AVID completely and use 8.2/8.1 and seeing if it happens in one of those versions as well. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Have you considered updating the OS to Mavericks or Yosemite?. A 2008 MacPro here with 10.10.1 Quadro 4000 and 8.3 is not having your troubles.

    Could also be worth your posting this in the Media Composer - Mac forum rather than the Media Composer -PC forum as more Mac users are likely to see it there

    I know we have an issue that is related to matertial on a NAS drive.  If what you are trying to import is on some shared drive, then try moving it locally and see if that helps.  Just a thought.

    I don't think 8.3 is qualified under Mountain Lion? In any case can a mod move this to the Mac forum..

    Can we go back to the way audio nodes used to be selected? Please? ie if you have audio nodes at the same time on selected tracks; then selecting 1 audio node selects them all at that time. Having to shift select nodes or add an in and out is time consuming and counter productive. At least make it an option.

    As per the current version matrix MC 8.3 is qualified under ML 10.8.5.
