    I keep getting the error message: ‘too many events were created’ every time I try to load my user settings. Previously, I would delete the MC State file and restart, and everything would be fine, but every time I close avid the error pops up again (and I delete the MC state and restart…getting sick of this patch)

    Does anyone know why this happens and how to do a permanent fix? Or must I rebuild my settings?

    You’ve probably already dealt with this, but you can try to delete your user folder and let it rebuild.

    To do this, quit MC. Then on the finder level, go inside your project and find the folder named “zYourUserName” (z followed by whatever your Avid user name is) and then go back into MC. That folder will be rebuilt. I am not certain it will fix this particular issue but it does clear things up for me at times when things are acting up.
