    Unable to Consolidate older seq in 8.4.5 - destBitDepth > 0

    Hi All, 

    I encountered an error with 8.4.5 (it was the first 8.x version I'd upgraded this system too from 7.0.4) which I thought I would share because I tracked it down after a long time!

    I was consolidating finished sequences (that had been finished in MC7) and they would fail with an error:

    Assertion failed: destBitDepth > 0
    File: ..\..\src\ColorManagement\ColorSpaceDescriptor.cpp, Line: 365

    Unfortinately neither the error nor the Console offered any hint as to the specific clip at fault... But after much trial and error I discovered it was a title!

    I don't know, ultimately, which software version was used to create the Title Media in question, as it's a common element that's been in use through a number of versions, but simply marking around the entire timeline and re-creating the Title Media was enough to solve the issue (Clip -> Recreate Title Media). 

    Hopefully if anyone else comes across this issue then this post will show up in the search results.
