Mocha Pro Avid AVX Plugin crashes avid on boot up

I tried installing the latest, and then a couple different legacy boris fx mocha pro plugins to use in avid. (currently just a trial,but plan to purchase for multiple systems, avid/adobe)

But how come after installing it, avid just crashses!

Avid 8.9.4
OSX 10.11.6

The AVX plugin when it was crashing is located in /Library/ApplicationSupport/Avid/AVX2_Plug-ins/

Avid kept crashing until I deleted that boris folder. Then it booted up perfectly again…

What am I missing? I know this is an older version setup, so maybe I need mocha pro 5 instead of 6?

At work and they have us on these ancient machines. My home machine is much more updated… but I need this to work, at work…

Thanks in advance!

Hi there!

Mocha Pro only works in Avid Media Composer from macOS system version 10.12 and above:

Are work able to make an exception and update past 10.11 for your machine?

at home of course. But at work we currently can not. Strict versions. BUT I think we’re finally getting updates soon, so I may just have to count on that… Thanks for the info!
