    Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Mac OS 10.15.3. The 2020.4 Readme says:

    "Color Picker in Titler+ has been normalized like other pickers: click to pick a color, double-click to open the color chooser."

    I can do the one-click to sample but trying a double-click to bring up the chooser locks up the system completely after a couple of attempts. Done it three times in succession now. To clarify, this seems to be a problem when creating gradients. Just colouring the entire object with one colour seems to work. Gradients worked fine on earlier releases.

    Also, when it locks up, the Force Quit window does not say 'Not responding' but I have to Force Quit (now for the fifth time).

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    I am experiencing a similar issue with the color chooser. It appears to be opening behind the source/record window and I am unable to access it to choose a color and get stuck there. Generally having to force quit to move forward.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Hi guys,

    I just finished a job that gave me time to upgrade to 2020.4 on my personal system... and while I like a lot of the new improvements (it certainly feels snappier on my mid-2014 MBP!), I wanted to chime in on this particular point because I'd been reading about how the new Title Tool+ is something of a hot mess - and boy howdy it is, at least to my mind. Currently very anti-intuitive in its implememtation. Like Scully, I want to believe! But to the point... when I use the color picker in the mini control panel that appears for Title+, the Avid seems to lock up. I can move my cursor around and access the pull-down windows but all functions are greyed out. I can't close the color picker window, get out of effects mode, or quit the program, even though the program hasn't completely frozen up. And then I have to force quit.

    To my eyes, it looks like there's a bug or something is broken in how the controls in that mini control panel talks to the larger, regular effects control panel. Given what they're trying to do with Title+, to me it begs the question of why they don't integrate all those text controls into the single effects mode control window. Something like Premiere's implementation of title controls. Ah well, maybe in an upcoming revision, they'll iron this out. Till then, back to the good ole Title Tool for me.

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    I've had this happen once. I wasn't able to reproduce it again, so didn't report it as a bug. Sounds like I (or at any rate someone here) should!

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Thanks Marianna! Are those case numbers listed in the order of our names?

    BTW - I found a YouTube tutorial that had been listed in the forum a few weeks ago that was a solid introduction to Title+ and now that I'm learning it properly, I'm feeling much better about it as the title tool replacement. ✂️🤠👍🏼

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    A pity. I just finished a job having had to roll back to 2019.6... was excited to roll back up to 2020 and dig into the Title+ tool again.

    Maybe 2020.6 will be the cure!

    Re: Titler+ Colour Picker lockup

    Howdy All,

    Having this same issue here; choosing Color Picker brings up an RGB dialog screen, can't summon the Color-Wheel and crashes Media Composer. I previously could access the Color-Wheel in Titler+, but for some reason it's not responding now. Has there been any resolution to this problem? TIA
