    Title Tool Crash MC 8.3.1


    I am using Media Composer 8.3.1 on my Late 2008 Macbook Pro (upgraded ram and harddrive recently). My OS is the most current Yosemite.  Every time I use Title Tool it will open up, let me create a title but then when I go to save it, the whole thing disappears and I get the spinning color wheel of death. When I close Title Tool it gives me a message asking if I'm sure I want to close it while it's trying to save a new title.  .... whether I force it closed or not it never gives me a title.  It never shows up in any of the bins, it's like I never made it.   

    Please help.  Do I need to download a patch? Or reinstall Title Tool or something? Which I'm not exactly sure how to uninstall and reinstall if that's what I need to do.  ... I'm sort of nervous around MC because it always seems to go haywire at some point despite which machine I'm working on.  I'm just at a loss.


    Many thanks.

    Ran into this at one point too. The answer was in where the title was being saved. It was defaulting to the main OS drive. Big mistake. So I changed it in the Media Creation settings to an external drive and all was fine.

    Many systems. Windows 7, Windows 10, and all flavors of macOS. Juts assume I'm running everything ;) [view my complete system specs]

    Thanks so much.  How do I change that?  I will look around and google it too but in the mean time thanks again for your help. 

    .............. nevermind, I found it.  It says that it's already going to my external hard drive. so I don't know.  Any other suggestions? 

    Many thanks!

    In your main project window go to the 'Settings' pull-down menu. Under 'Media Creation' you can choose destination drive for various types of new audio and video media
