Default Re: "The avid video engine was unable to stop" error

I think it's the video satellite link connecting the AVE to PT.
It is often related to drives. People who put the video on an SSD seem to have less issues. Is your video on your MBP internal drive?
I get this occasionally even with my super reliable AJA IOXT with PT 12.4 HDX.
Sometimes, disabling the video track blue button (or shift apple J) can help. Let the AVE gets its knickers out of a twist, then carry on.

ps Photojpeg is actively discouraged by Avid (read the docs)
H264 actually works well but can lag the processor, depends on how many frames are key frames and how fast your processor is etc.
