    MC 8 Unusable/Unstable/Unreliable Unacceptable?

    This is my third or fourth post reagrding MC8, since rolling out an upgrade from MC 7.0.4 i have had nothing but trouble. With little to no help from Avid i am left with no option but to roll back ourt entire facility. There has been some grerat help from people on here. Some of the problems we are experiencing are Large projects/ bins taking an age to open. Sluggish playback of media - illustrated by red and yellow lines on the timeline Reverse playback judders, when first started, then catches up Forward playback judders, when first started, then catches up unexplained delay between source/record monitor and video display  Stepping/Juddering in the source and record monitors. Various crashes. Believe me i have tried many many different ways to remedy the faults.

    We've been using all flavors of MC v.8 thus far without the issues you describe.  However, we are still on Mountain Lion, so not sure if that is the issue.

    I'll give a +1 to running on Mt. Lion. We have been running all versions of 8 under 10.8.5 here without any issues. Except for a longer than normal launch time.
