    WHAT'S INCLUDED:

    There are a number of bug fixes, including:
    - In some instances, a LUT did not stay applied to multi-resolution clips.

    - With Matrox hardware attached, video playback was choppy.
    - Loading sequences with heavily nested rendered effects was extremely slow.
    - FilmScribe might have crashed when trying to preview a change list containing freeze frames and timewarps.

    NOTE: Customers with dual 6 core Mac Pro towers (Westmere) and the 2013 Mac Pro with a single 12 core CPU may experience performance issues with transcode, render, and playback on OS 10.10.  These degradations are typically seen with higher resolution material.  The issue has been logged with Apple and we are awaiting an update.

    Wow. Thanks Avid for the fixes and OS 10.10.2 support. I still have tearing problems in full screen, even with console command moncon off on my retina macbookpro and on external monitor. Tearing appears with Canon C300 25p 1080 AMA material aswell as DNXHD transcoded media. Compositor video is fine though.

    Thanks.

    Andre.

    Did you select "Flip on Vertical Sync" in the Full Screen Display dialog box?  That should address tearing.

    yes, that makes it better, but still there is awful tearing mostly in the lower third of the screen.

    Was hoping to get some clarification on the above note. Specificaly the sentence "These degradations are typically seen with higher resolution material".

    Does "higher resolution material" specifically mean "higher than 1080"? And when using the word "typically", does that mean this issue has been seen with projects at 1080 and/or below?

    Uninstall using the uninstaller. Repair permissions using Disk Utility. Download 7.0.4.3 from Download Center and install full version. If that doesn't work, we need more details: OS version, hardware configuration, error messages.etc.

    Did all the stuff suggested.

    On re-launch, I actually got to asking me to register. Skipped it.

    It started launching and then halfway through, crashed.

    Do you need the whole error message or just part of it?

    It's hard to fathom what's wrong without a extremely long thread, so I'd suggest calling Avid.  You do get a free call to Avid Support for installation troubleshooting.

    Do you know if this addresses a remapping "go to in mark" bug that appears to be on 7.0.4.2?

    Re: Media Composer v7.0.4.3 | PATCH AVAILABLE

    When will a patch for MC7 be available for 10.10.3?  I accidently upgraded before AVID approval and I -- like many others on this board -- are having infurating active window problems. 

    To quote another poster, "Everytime I open a new window (for example: export or transcode window), I get a "beep" when I click somewhere and nothing happens (the window is blocked for changes). It turns out that I first have to click the window on the upper bar and move it. Then MC notices the window as active and then I can do changes in the window."  Also, there is no render/import progress bar. 

    Please advise as this is extremely annoying.

    Not sure..Avid usually doesn't post until it's readily available.  I know they are looking at 10.10.3 with the next version of software.  Once they see what issues that may cause, revisions will *probably* ripple down to v8.x and v7.x.

    This should remind everyone of the importance of never upgrading your OS until you know the version of Avid is qualified for it.

    Good pratcise is to partition your hard drive and give Media Composer its own, with the required specs. Been doing that for years, most stable editing software around.

    And maybe you know, what about MC6? I have it on my second machine. Will it ever support Yosemite?
