Video AI 5.1.1 Crashing when importing Tiff Sequences

I upgraded Video AI to version 5.1.1
now it cannot import Tiff sequences (UHD, 16bit), crashes immediately on [open]
it was working fine before the upgrade with the same files.
importing .mov works, I didn’t try other formats. (1.6 MB)

The team is looking into this now and trying to get a patch together quickly.

Same here.

I’m seeing the same issue importing both 8-bit sRGB TIFF files and JPEG files.

Unfortunately also seeing the same crash on 5.1.0. Downgraded to 5.0.4 - and I can now import a TIFF sequence ok.
