PT 10 all black edit window
anybody else getting this graphical glitch?? it seems like after a while, and numerous tracks and/or plugins, the edit window is blacked out. i can stil lsee boards, like the groups and tracks on the left, and i can switch to mixer mode, which looks and responds fine. and playback and/or recording works flawlessly...it just seems to be the visual of the edit window. i've closed and reopened the session, same with pro tools...same with a restart...it's crazy...

im using a brand new late 2012 imac, 3.4 ghz i7, 8gb ram,OSX 10.8.3 running PT 10.3.5

First thing I would do is redownload a fresh copy of Pro Tools and then uninstall the Pro Tools you have now. Try reinstalling Pro Tools. Make sure your Mac is updated also.

I'm not sure if the bug you're describing is the same as something that occasionally happens to me?

Bug: sometimes the edit window goes dark, almost as if i've selected the entire timeline and every track.

Fix: A quick zoom in and out of the timeline.

Hope that's all it is for you (but maybe not...).

Re: PT 10 all black edit window
The same happens to me as well. The edit window goes black and when I try to select anything, it shows some random red lines and numbers on top of the timeline. Zooming in and out gets the screen back up, but it flickers and I start to get multiple errors.
It happens more often when I have multiple instances of Kontakt. Also, i keep getting errors while trying to save (not enough memory to translate the track).

I have 32gb of ram and I know PT 10 HD only handles up to 4gb max... I have no clue what could be happening. I have about 70 tracks and I am running a video too... (and it is compressed as DV)
Now the job is taking twice as long to complete and I have to restart the computer at least twice an hour in order to be stable for a short period of time.

Anyone experiencing similar problems?
