    video compression not recognized

    I've been working on a project for about 3 months and suddenly today all my most recent sequences won't load.

    I have about 30 versions of my sequence.  I can still load and play all the version until Version 23.  From that one on as soon as I load them I get the message: Video compression not recognizerd.....Line: 4885" and it won't let me play them at all.

    I'm on a 2017 iMac Pro running High Sierra.  I'm not sure what version of Composer I'm running - it's a license for Ultimate.

    The media is mostly 4K clips brought in at DNXHR LB (3840x2160)

     

    Any help?

    Thanks so much.

    You say "mostly" DNXHR. What is the other stuff, and when did it arrive in the Project? 

    Also, if you disable video tracks (the 'power' button in the expanded track panel) in sequences that won't play, can you then play them? If so, you can begin to narrow down the culprit(s) that are preventing playback, first by track and then by the 'divide and conquer' method.

    I'm assuming that some media has been added into the Project that is now misbehaving.
