    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    This issue came up in 2020.4, never got fixed in .5, .6, or .8. What's the status on this?

    In 2020.8, it seems only slightly better when operating a single monitor but still exists. Dual monitor setup is notably worse. For those looking for a workaround, albeit kind of insane, I did discover that by going to the menu, click avid media composer>about avid media composer window, clicking "ok," app switching (command-tab) to some other app, and using exposé in macOS (center mouse button for me) to get back into media composer - that has been able to give me control of the UI again. but it's a LOT of clicking to get there.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    You're a mad genius to have figured this out, David. This color picker lockup has been driving me nuts for months--knowing there's at least SOME workaround is slightly reassuring.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Running MC 2020.6.0. I was trying to show the T+to my students. But it has locked up four times when trying to use the color picker.  It's late October and this is still broken? A hot mess, just about sums it up. Actually it's a cold mess...

    Really glad I left this bread crumb. Just happened upon it again on an overnight edit. 2020.8 currently.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    I have this issue as well MC 2020.12, Mac OS 10.14.6.

    Essentially I am unable to use the Titler+ since it always results in having to force quit MC.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Did you try going to "about avid media composer" and command-tabbing out and back into Avid? It's a lot of clicking and tabbing but I've had success with that

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    I'm having the same issue.

    I am running MC 2020.12 and OS 10.15.7

    The Titler+ tool just won't respond to the colour picker tool and then locks up. It doesn't read as "not responding", but I can't get out of the Titler tool or do anything else.

    Is this a bug?

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Yes, it's a bug!  The solution is to disable the Colour Info tool in Effect Editor settings. The Colour Info Tool is ridiculous nonsense that is not needed or useful to 95% of users 95% of the time in my opinion.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Except when you need it or find it useful (teaching colour correction, for instance). But I guess we could turn it off in Effect Mode. But if we click once to choose a colour in T+, up it pops.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Agreed, CC is when it's likely to be needed. And there's a button on the Colour Correction tool to open it.

    But it gets in the way of colour picking in Spectramatte, or indeed of almost any colour in any effect. Grrr!

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Pardon the question, but how do you disable the colour info tool?

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    That worked. Now when selecting a color in the Effect Editor, it brings up the color picker from the Titler tool vs the OS. Good find!

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    2020.12... Liking all of the new tweaks to Title+. It's getting much closer to actually being useful, but this color picker lockup issue persists. At least for me. I disabled the Colour Info tool as suggested and yet the system continues to lock up after I try changing the color. Maybe not the first instance of color switching, but after two or three more selections... boom. Down it goes. So near and yet so far!
