    Marquee not launching

    I am trying to use Marquee for the first time, and am having a heck of a time getting it to launch.  I am following the Avid PDF tutorial.  I am using Mac Media Composer 8.4.0 with OS 10.13.3  (OS High Sierra).

     

    I launch Media Composer with no problem.  I start with a new project.  I select NEW TITLE from the CLIP menu.  I get a dialog box asking me to select the title tool:  Marquee, Title Tool, or Titler Pro.  I select Marquee, my Mac accesses the hard drive, and then I am returned to the original source/record/timeline screen on Media Composer.  No error message, but no Marquee either.  

     

    I also read in the knowledge base that sometimes Marquee will fail to launch if there is not enough memory or open bins are too large.  I was in a new project with a practically empty bin, but just to be sure, I restarted my Mac and closed every application except MC and my Google Chrome.  Still nothing.

     

    When I try running the standard Title Tool, it launches just fine.

     

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Re: Marquee not launching

    On MAC High Sierra, you must be on one of the latest versions.  I believe 8.9.4 is the first version to work properly with Marquee but there may be an additional fix for Marquee on following versions.
