Fix 12.8+ Crash on Quit

I know it's not impacting everyone, but for me, going from 12.7.1 to 12.8.1 introduced a new crash which happens every time I try to quit the app: it just shows the generic 'Send to Avid' crash reporter. Apparently, the same happened for some others who tried 12.8.0 also. For me, it's completely tied to whether or not I have Guitar Rig 5.2.2 in my plugins folder or not, but there could well be other plugins related to ...more »

Terminal periodically opens

Sometimes a terminal suddenly pops up.

As it looks, it caused by some bug in the interaction between OS and Avid apps.

Maybe it's the Application Manager that causes all this trouble?

 

I see that some users have the same issue:

Pro Tools bugs

Collaboration tools do not work.

(This is a bug report which I prevoiusly posted in S3 bugs by mistake. Since posting this I've also tried relocating ProTools to the desktop and disabling my firewalls based on comments in other forums, to no effect) 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the "invite another user" and "artist chat" buttons create a blank popup window ...more »

Collaboration tools show blank window, no error message

64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel core i7-6700K CPU 4.00 GHz, 16 GB RAM, running ProTools 12.5.2 In collaboration tools, both the invite another user and artist chat buttons create a blank popup window that never populates (waited up to 20 minutes). No error message. I can close the window and carry on editing. None of the buttons in the track collaboration function appear to do anything at all, whether in the universal ...more »

Fix Crash: Navigating Mac File Selection by Keyboard

When in standard, Mac-driven file selection dialog windows (e.g. Create New, Open, Import Audio, etc.) using keyboard-based navigation (e.g. Left Arrow, Right Arrow, Cmd+Up, Cmd+Down, etc.) too rapidly causes the entire app to freeze for several seconds, then crash completely, presenting the standard 'Send to Avid' option. This is not only frustrating, but also a great way to lose work! Known to occur in Pro Tools 12.7.1, ...more »

Full Screen mode gone in 12.6.1 on MacOS 10.11.6

just installed 12.6.1 on MacOS El Capitan 10.11.6, upgraded from 12.5.2. Full screen mode no longer works. I click the green button, and it just (vaguely) maximizes the window, instead of entering full screen. (the old style green button behavior, like older OSX versions)

 

12.5.2 (and before, at least since 12.3 i think) worked fine in this regard.

 

EDIT: still broken in 12.7 on macOS 10.12.2 :(

Make faulty plugin RED after CPU error!

We've all been there... A CPU error stops playback and then the CPU meter is peaking, rendering the session unusable until we find the problem plugin(s). Usually it's ONE plugin that is malfunctioning. BUT, to find that plugin can take dozens of minutes! Is it possible to automatically colour the likely culprit(s) RED after a CPU error? This would be such a time saver for so, so many of us. Of course, we'd prefer no ...more »

Pro Tools 12 HD offline bounce bug

Offline bouncing a stereo file in Pro Tools HD 12.4 and 12.5 (not tested with earlier versions) results reproducibly the size of bounced left channel to be same than the source channel of the bounce, but right bounced channel is a bit larger (reported by Finder). Same happens with 5.1 files - the size of bounced left channel is the same than the original, all the other five are a bit larger. Pro Tools sees the bounced ...more »
