    It's not user or project specific...

    So a fresh user setting and a new project still leave it stuck?

    I'd make sure the current project is backed up and uninstall and re-install MC.

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    Apparently there shold be a color presets files here:

    The Colour Correction Presets should be installed in Applications/Avid Media Composer/ Supporting Files/Avid_EffectsPresets/Color Correction Presets.aep

     

    But I don't have that, even with a fresh install...

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    Can you try opening the project with all bins closed?

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    I'm on a PC but I don't have that path. My color correction Presets.aep is at:

     

    C:\Users\Public\Documents\Avid Media Composer\Avid_EffectsPresets

    But if you did an uninstall (and then delete all the Avid media composer folders to clear any preferences) and re-installed anything missing should be replaced.

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    So switching off my AJA IO Express box makes the problem go away...

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    Hi James,

    did you leave it being stuck for a while? I once had that with a project whenever I had to switch between different 2018.x versions. After waiting a minute or two the - seemingly frozen - MC proceeded. Once I had done that, MC opened the project in regular time until I had to switch versions again.

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    I've left it for a few minutes.

     

    The fact that losing the AJA box fixes it means there must be some new clash - makes no sense as it was working fine..

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    I'd try uninstalling the AJA drivers. This should allow MC to launch in software mode.

    Then try re-installing the AJA drivers.

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    I've discovered that the problem is caused by the Mini-converter Analog-SDI (which I use to be able to record guide VO).

    If I switch it off all works fine.

    I haven't connected it since upgrading to MC2018.11

    Could the MC upgrade require an AJA driver upgrade, eveh though I didn't upgrade the OS?  I am on 12.3.0 firmware which is a little old but works fine without the converter connected.

    Re: Project opening stuck on Color Correction Presets

    I wonder if switching on / off the mini-conv is just like connecting / disconnecting any SDI signal to the IO Express.

    This thread by jef looks a lot like what you are seeing.
