    Baselight for Avid - MC 2020.2 and Catalina

    Using a new MacBook Pro 16 with Media Composer 2020.2 beta. I am trying to install the Baselight for Avid plugin (latest version) without success. Initially, the BLA installer fails claiming that the MacOS is too new but their website claims support. I extracted the AVX plugin from inside the .pkg installer and copied it to the appropriate folder. MC starts up as it should but if I apply the BLA plugin to a clip, MC immediately crashes.

    I'm wondering if anyone else is dealing with this? Does it have to do with Avid reworking everything for Catalina or is it the actual plugin. I'll contact Filmlight support well but decided to check here first. Thanks!

    Yes, they (filmlight) needs to update their Avid BL plugin. We ran into the problem last week.

    Received this message from Filmlight support today:

    "Development just completed on Baselight Editions for Avid on Catalina recently
    and we are now in a brief period of testing before we release it to the web
    site."

    So it seems the next release will have everything back up and running.
