The problem description (from AVID)

  • A license error message may appear during the launch of Media Composer on a Mac computer

  • Users who then reboot their system may get caught in a reboot loop cycle

What to do if you experience the problem (from AVID)

  • Some customer have reported that reinstalling their current version of macOS has fixed the issue

  • Please take care to not reformat the drives during OS install

  • Install only the macOS that you had been using before the issue arose - there is no need to upgrade your macOS to a newer version
