    8.6 crashes on 'Initializing' at startup

    Hi. Anybody else experience intermittent crashes on 'Initializing' at startup? It happens most of the time, but not always.

    Any input or solution is appreciated. Thanks

    Re: 8.6 crashes on 'Initializing' at startup

    Yes, really frustrating!  This only happens on my Early 2013 Retina MacBook Pro.  My main machine(Mac Pro 2010) opens just fine.  It seems to always happen on Initialzing Capture Tool.  

    It will only launch 1 out of every 10 tries. And no rhyme or reason, I have tried reinstalling, which helps for the first launch, but then back to the same old problem.  Re-starting the computer seems to help once every 5th time.  I upgraded BMD Desktop Video, that seemed to help once.  

    Really, I have no idea, and the end result is I just cant use the software on my laptop!

    Someone Please help!

    Re: 8.6 crashes on 'Initializing' at startup

    Hi Andrew and all. Just wanted to update that i was able to fix the crash issue from MC 8.6 startup and it turns out it was caused by old versions of plug-ins that were no longer compatible with version 8.6 but had been compatible with my older version of MC. So try updating your MC plugins or remove them and see if that resolves your issue.

    Just some brief playing around on 8.6 seems to work fine. I hope it stays this way.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks mrak1979!  I have run across this before but it usualy crashes AVID at Initalizing AVX2 Effects.  Anyway, I went through it, upgraded and got rid of some old ones and all seems good now!

    Re: 8.6 crashes on 'Initializing' at startup

    Yes, this happened to me when upgraded to 8.5. Just happened to me again with 8.6, but this time I figured out which avx2 plug-ins needed to be replaced, and I was good to go.

    8.6.1 is out.

    Looks like it may address this issue.
