    crash when editing Vert Open effect

    Using Avid Media Composer 5.5.3.4 (latest patch) on a intel core 2 quad cpu q8200 2.33Ghz processor with 8gb Ram on Windows Ultimate 64 bit (but of course this version of avid does not take advantage of the 64)

    The applied affect does not play in the time line.  When I open the effects editor and try to set key frames, the following error pops up:

     

    Assertion failed !("WHo\'s calling this?!?!?")

    File:..\..\src\Consumers\EffectMan\ARealTimeEffect.c, line: 102

     

    Any clues what any of this means?  The Assertion sounds...... really weird.  And there is no such file on my computer.

    Just tested a few other effects - it does the same thing will all Edge Wipes and Spins but not Shape Wipes

    Just want to make sure you know that MC 5 and MC 6 are specifically qualified for W7 Professional 64, NOT Ultimate, as per the version matrix.

    Hmmm.... I figured that Professional was a minimum for some of the networking functions.  Anyone else run into this problem?  If so, are you running Ultimate or Professional?

    I'm by no means an expert on the subject, but IIRC, it has to do with turning off certain permissions profiles in Ultimate. Hopefully someone else can chime in about that.

    If you hear a solution, I'm all ears.  I have Home and Ultimate but not Pro.

    Re: crash when editing Vert Open effect

    Hello Larry,

    I wish to thank you for your tip in your answer about the problem: Assertion failed !("WHo\'s calling this?!?!?") File:..\..\src\Consumers\EffectMan\ARealTimeEffect.c, line: 102

    I have received (and with me some other guys I see on this forum) NO SOLUTION for this problem. With your tip about the persmissions I have found that my Avid MC program was reinstalled in a wrong way after my PC was repaired !  The program must be installed with an ADMINISTRATOR account and not with an "account with administrator privileges"   (cfr AMC Guide) !!!!! I have reinstalled AMC with a real ADMINISTRATOR account and now editing effects works fine again !  I will edit my original post with "solved" and the solution.

    Thans a lot !

    Johan
