I shot a 3 cam shoot in 1080p60 – everything is working fine, running FCP 7 (last) 5,1 2010 machine, and I have a Intensity pro 4k card that displays 1080p60 great.
I put 2 SSD drives on a Sonnet card that creates a 800mbs Read and Write time and speed test is all green…
The problem I have is that every 15 min, I get the color beach ball spinning if I move the playhead around in the time line (normal editing, etc) – have to force quit everytime.
The question is, why? – Im not trying to edit in 4K – just in 1080p60. – I tried this on my 2012 laptop with a single SSD drive and same thing happens (more frequently)
is there a setting that I can check so it doesn’t have to work as hard maybe? – I have 10 audio tracks but only 4 at a time (the others are muted) – and just 3 layers, etc. Im not adding any filters, etc – just working with the raw footage, and one clip at a time (just cutting between shots)
Any ideas? – I hate having to restart every 15 mins
Thanks so much
