"Segmentation fault" error message
on Sep 18, 2014 at 11:23:25 am

Have a Media Composer project file that gives me the following message and then crashes each time I open it:
"Segmentation fault" in thread "MainThread", at address 0x0

Another project seems to open fine.
Just consolidated about 50gb of files last night from the project with problems.

I deleted the database file from the Avid MediaFile MXF folder (1) and let it rebuild new ones.
I restarted my machine.

Still the same problem.

Hoping to not have to rebuild the whole project from scratch.
On a deadline for a client, of course!!

Thanks for any help, advice!

Ok...I *Might* have fixed it.
I seem to remember a similar problem from having "illegal" characters on files on the desktop.

I removed the "( )" characters from a file on my desktop, and so far, so good.
