Hi @Uphys and @Pierre_Rosseau , that sounds extremely odd, I have never seen such a behavior in all my years with Steinberg’s software, even though I mostly use Nuendo I don’t see any reason why it should be any different, as they both share the same basic code.
Amm, the only thing that comes into mind is that probably something is causing the video engine to crash when you open certain projects, and from that point forward anything you do is affected by the lack of a working video engine. Could be that some video(s) you have in specific projects are somehow coded in a way that once the video engine tries to show them it renders it into a hang state, but as I said, I have never seen such behavior so I’m just throwing everything that comes to mind.
I would try a couple of things.
- “Hide” the videos associated with one of those problematic projects and load the project with those video files missing, then try importing a new video as I suggested above.
- if the first option fails, try to uninstall the software and download the latest version from Steinberg again. Maybe even try to load it without your personal preferences just to make sure.
Note that if you navigate: Studio>More Options>System component information. then click the Program Plug-ins tab, you should see a component named Video Player, and it should be checked to be active.
If you’re using hardware video playback monitoring as I do, such as Blackmagic Intensity Pro or other video monitoring methods such as AJA or other Blackmagic cards. make sure you have their latest drivers for your system.
