One thing AVID mentioned was this:
- Delete the "AvidVideoEngine" in "Macintosh HD/Users/Shared/"
..which works 75% of the time.

I just started getting this issue the first time I opened an older session that had video after upgrading to Mojave and PT 2019.5.

The trashing of the above folder, followed immediately by a restart worked, only for the issue to return the next day.

I trashed the folder again, restarted and it's been fine for a week now.
