'Lot of L.A. post shops and people out on shows having their Macs slowly crash,' tweeted video post-production consultant Matt Penn.

The problem appears to be focused on 2013 models of a Mac desktop affectionately referred to as 'the trashcan,' due to its cylindrical appearance, that were reportedly running editing software from the company Avid and older versions of Mac OS. 

The company says it is currently aware of the issues and has launched an investigation.

'This issue is top priority for our engineering and support teams, who have been working diligently to determine and resolve the root cause,' said the company in a statement.

As reported by MacRumors, the issue may also be related to a software glitch created by an update to Apple's Safari browser that is causing Avid data to become corrupted.

Users who have been affected by the problems have been told to boot using their Mac's 'single-user' mode - holding command and 's' keys while booting - which will allow them to back up Avid data without triggering a shut down.
