    Re: Avid FX 6.4 crashes MC 8.5.1

    I had similar issues a while back - I was told that the only solution was to upgrade to Boris Red!

    Re: Avid FX 6.4 crashes MC 8.5.1

    I'm having this same crashing problem on MC 8.5.3 with Avid FX 6.2.0.231. Both work fine on their own, but open Avid FX from within Avid and both crash.

    Has anyone made any progress on getting to the bottom of this?

    Re: Avid FX 6.4 crashes MC 8.5.1

    No progress at all.

    Sad, but it looks that for macOS Media Composer version 8.5.0 is end of the road for AvidFX plugin.

    Curiously: in PC Windows 7 environment AvidFX still works well even with latest AMC 8.6.3...

    Last AvidFX version 6.4 wasn't updated from years so its plugin interface was well known for Avid app developers I think. But Avid changed something in macOS AMC 8.5.1 and don't want to do anything with this in recent versions... This is message (blah, blah...) from Avid Customer Care:

    Avid FX 6.4 crashes MC 8.6.3 - Case : 03034481:

    "Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Avid Customer Care.

    Avid FX was discontinued a few years ago and is not qualified or tested with any version of Avid Media Composer past 7.0.x.

    Please check this link for confirmation:

    If I'm not mistaking Boris FX has replaced this with their current RED suite, although it seems that the information was removed from their website:

    Without any integrated compositing tools Avid MC falls way behind its competitors.
