bcrichguitar: it looks like you had the "install video (software, driver, etc...)" option checked when you installed Pro Tools. I've made this mistake many times before. What I'd recommend - to avoid many other potential issues, and I know this sounds extreme, but it's really easy using the Pro Tools installer folder in your applications directory - is completely uninstalling Pro Tools and then carefully re-installing everything, reading all options and windows when installing. Make sure the video option is not selected.

Many, many other more experienced people are within this forum and may answer you eventually, however, I saw you had a lot of views and no replies, so I thought I'd offer my two cents. Hope this help and keeps you from becoming a PT hater just 'cause things didn't install as simply as some think they should. When installed correctly, as a newbie, you will find it's a great program for recording audio. Good luck fixing this. I'll check back...

BTW...congrats on being new to PT and I wish you the best of luck with your musical journey.

no need to uninstall and reinstall. Just remove the folder called video engine that in the same folder as Pro Tools application. that's it. If you don't want to delete it, just hide it in a new folder and call it hide video engine or something like that.
