    Media Composer 6.5.2 bugs / errorcode 4294967188

    We recently upgraded our 12 bays from 5.5 to 6.5.2 and have been having a lot of buggie issues from exporting to corrupt sequences to funky timeline scrolling issues.

    Not to mention the editor revolt I'm experiencing due to the new Mixer window and rubber banding changes.

    The latest is an error when trying to export to our server.  Something we did a hundred times a day with 5.5.

    We're still running Mac OSX 6.8.2 and our Unity is 5.0.  All editors created new settings in 6.5.2.

    Does anyone know of any patches yet for 6.5.2 or known problems?  Is this because I'm not running OSX 7.0.  

    I don't recall having this many bugs in an upgrade in years.

    Thanks in advance for words of wisdom.

    They really screwed up rubber banding in an effort to make it more functional... In so doing they actually messed up the ability to adjust key frames on multiple tracks simultaneosly. This is the main reason I have not gone to 6.5 even though I bought the upgrade (still using 6.03.3). Who tests this stuff before releasing, obviously nobody working in a real world situation? Or maybe Avid doesn't listen to what the beta testers have to say?

    Your export errors may well be related to being on 10.68 rather than 10.7 or 10.8, or the version of Quicktime. MC 6 is 64 bit and you are running on 32 bit OS. Exporting works pretty well on my system but I always re-start before doing an export as I often see errors if I don't.

    For others who might be getting this error - my problem was that I had my dimensions set up to something ridiculous accidentally (17239x1080 or some such).
