Dived into 5.5 yesterday and after galloping along for a couple of hours I found something untoward regarding copy / past / cut etc. Seemingly any edit command causes Nuendo itself to freeze, and the only option is to crash it via task manager, at which point I get a windows dialog saying that Videoplayer.exe stopped working. All of my projects use video, output through a Black Magic Intensity and after much ado, I remembered a bug from a previous version and decided to uninstall quicktime, at which point the problem was gone. I then tried the installing the latest version of quicktime (7.69), and the problem returned. I then uninstalled that and tried an older version (7.55) and the problem was still there.
Essentially, with quicktime installed, I cannot copy/paste or cut which is a pretty big issue. Is anyone else seeing this? I installed Nunedo 5.5 x64 (which now supports Black Magic output) and this does not exhibit the issue however mid project and with loads of 32 bit plugins this isn’t really a solution at the moment.
I have now rolled back to 5.1.1 wherein another issue occurs, seemingly randomly, which has been cropping up at various times in the last few weeks. This is a hard crash, requiring hard reset, and happens at any point and seems not to be related to any particular action. Could be twice an hour, could be once or day or less. Now of course this could be hardware related in some way but after my 5.5 experience I wonder if quicktime might also be the culprit? However, with deadlines looming I haven’t got time to test so at the moment my only course of action is to soldier on and save often! Luckily my machine boots fast.
If anyone has any thoughts that’d be much appreciated, thanks.
