    MC|F 2018.4 crashes unless AMPIPluginDSM.avx removed from package

    I'm a certified Avid Pro Tools user (Operator: Music), and wanted to give MC|F a try, as a possible replacement to Adobe Premier. Unfortunately, the program quits unexpectedly at launch when initializing AMPIPluginDSM.avx.

     

    Removing AMPIPluginDSM.avx from the MC|F package allows the program to run, but with "limited audio capability."

     

    Other than stock plugins, I use several from FabFilter, plus RX6 Advanced (all of which are up to date). Pro Tools 2018.4 runs with no problems (I use it daily).

    Can someone point to some specific troubleshooting steps?

    Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue. When it occured in MC:F 2018.3, i would just try and launch it again. It would start up correctly after two or three attempts. But it seems to have gotten worse in 2018.4 (i am now using the regular MC though - but the loader codebase should be identical i think).

    It also appears to occur less when there are few plugins in AVX2_Plug-Ins. This is anecdotal though.

    I have not found a configuration where MC 2018.4 starts up reliably, every time, with full features and without a warning dialogue :-/

    Cheers

    Me too.

    Everytime I start it without exception. Gave up on on trying to use it and bought FC 10 Pro. Just downloaded 2018.4 hoping it was fixed but still bombs out with Ampiplugindsm.avx error.

     

    Mac Pro 2013+ 12GB ram 3.7GHz quad core xeon E5, AMD FirePro D300 2048 MB. Latest high Sierra with all updates. Allen and Heath QU32 desk. Nothing else much installed and Protools working great.

     

    I think my MAC is at the bottom end of the spec for MC but this looks more like a bug that a spec problem and FC x Pro works like a dream apart from it's poverty spec Audio subsystem.

     

    same in MC First and full version.

    Sadly, MC|F still fails for me, even with an empty AVX2_Plug-ins folder.

    Yikes. This doesn't bode well for my test! I'm not giving up yet, but this doesn't make me feel much better.

    I may end up like you. I downloaded the trial, but haven't activated it yet. I was really hoping to love MC, but it will be hard to if I can't launch it!

    It sounds an awful lot like this is a bug in AMPIPluginDSM.avx.
