Question: FCPX crashes while trying to open

I installed the FCPX 30 day trial, and it worked fine the day of. Today ( a day later), when I try launch it, it crashes and closes before I even click anything.

This is the error from the log:

Application Specific Information:

[FFHGRendererInfo initWithLocation:] CGLSetVirtualScreen failed - didn't expect to get here. Investigate why this code ran: [FFHGRendererInfo initWithLocation:] CGLSetVirtualScreen failed: loc=1, ctxt=0x7fd5ab01b600, err=10008

-[FFRendererInfo initWithLocation:], /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/Flexo/Flexo-30323.5.7/framework/image/FFH GRendererManager.mm:341

abort() called

MacBook Pro TouchBar and Touch ID, iOS 10.3.3, high sierra

I have encountered the same issue, and it happens when:

  • importing media to events
  • opening events which includes media

My MacBook Pro (15-inch 2017) is connect to LG UltraFine 5K display, so I disconnected it from my mac as you suggest.

FCPX starts and work with no problem when not connecting to a display. However, after connecting to a display the error always occurs.
