I removed the effect from the clips and when I try to add the effect again - just nothing happens. The effect is added (I can see it in the effect control panel) but the effect does not appear to visually change the clip in any way in the reference monitor.
Anyone else having issues of a similar nature? Or is my GPU just getting to old for the latest updates?
I agree with Ann ... and I hope NO user with paying clients ever updates to a new version of any software without testing it first. Make sure the auto-update is turned off in the Creative Cloud desktop app. And when allowing updates manually, make sure 'remove prior versions' is unchecked!
Always work client projects in the version the project was started in until you have thoroughly tested the new major upgrade with new projects.
When yo do migrate projects forward, create new projects in the new major version. Then use MediaBrowser panel to migrate to and import the previous project file's assets.
Your older project is still entirely usable. And this tends to be a more stable way to migrate forward.
