Unable to open old .blend files after Filmic installed.
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system and graphics card

Windows 10 Pro + Titan

Blender Version
Broken: 2.78x
Worked: Not sure

Opening .blend files create prior to installing Filmic files causes Blender to crash (exit) without an error. Removing Filmic allows the files to be opened successfully. The converse is also true: opening files create while Filmic was installed in a version of Blender without Filmic installed causes the program to exit without an error message. The "problem" .blend files are those with VSE content saved in them. Those without seem to work ok.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
In a copy of Blender without Filmic installed

Create a .blend file with VSE content e.g. an image strip
Save the file

In a copy of Blender with Filmic installed

Open the file.

Hi Paul.

We didn't add filmic in Blender yet. It's an open todo with known issues. Please test this again after it gets officially added.
This bug tracker is for reports on official builds on blender.org only. (But I'll notify the developer of the potential issue, to test it well)
