Lightroom Crashes, New Updates Hate Sony Files

I updated to the LR Classic CC. Not only does it consistently crash when I try to upgrade the catalog, which I am prompted to do every time I open lightroom, but it crashes every single time I move from the library tab to the develop tab. I am running on Mac, using Sony files. I know that Sony files (including MTS video files) are also not working across all of the new updates.

Uncheck the option Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor.  Then update your graphics driver by going to the manufacturer's site (Windows) or updating to the most recent minor version of MacOS: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-gpu-faq.html#
