  • Avoid the 10.6.7 Update! Most bug filled update so far!

    Posted by Ben Balser on July 21, 2023 at 1:47 pm

    I’m reading on various forums that the latest 10.6.7 FCPX update is full of more bugs than ever. Lots of freezing, crashing, claiming your hardware suddenly can’t support 4K video, it’s horrible. Please avoid if you can!

    Kinda sad and worrisome that we can’t even trust Apple’s FCP bug fixes anymore. Are they not even putting in enough resources to do enough testing and QA before releasing?

    Meanwhile, Resolve just went through another round of public betas and a full release with new features.

    With smart bins, they now have smart collections, and they sort based on metadata. So now about the only difference is the magnetic timeline, which I’m overriding half the time anyway. When FCPX first came out, it was updating like crazy. But it was also an incomplete app at that time.

    Running on it on a few newer setups but most of the time on a 2013 Mac Pro and the only issue I have is it intermittently hangs. If you don’t want to wait, I just kill it and start over but if you wait it moves forward. Basic edits and adding captions have been the culprit of late.

    I honestly don’t see the same issues on a 2019 Mac Pro or M1 MBP 16″.

    Found a new bug exporting any FCP XML to Resolve 17.

    Yes, I haven’t updated for other reasons.

    Did anyone manage to import the newly fcpxmld xml into Resolve 17?

    And if R18 works, I might just pull the trigger.

    Here is the fix if you have access to XtoCC:

    I did a good ole fashioned pref trash, and a lot of the weirdness went away.

    There’s a Format Support update as well in the system updates.

    CRAP! I upgraded to 10.6.7 yesterday before I saw any of these warnings. Now my FCPX will not start up. It just locks up at the loading phase. How can I get back to 10.6.6?

    Delte all render files, delete preference files, that seems to help most folks. And update your Pro Video Format, too. Highly recommend FCP Library Manager from Arctic Whiteness.

    Did 10.6.8 improve all these issues? – I have just seen that 10.6.9 is just dropping (with iPhone 15 extras and some new logs being the main changes). Do people still think sticking to 10.6.5 is best, or have the new bugs resolved? Any issues with third party plug-ins found too? I’m not updating Ventura 13.3.1(a) after reading elsewhere on this forum that several plug-ins died with the update.

    I’m running Ventura 13.5.2 (current) with FCP 10.6.9 with no problem.

    Plugins I use: Waves, FXFactory, CoreMelt, motionVFX, a bunch I made myself in Motion, and a few stragglers from various known forum members. One bad experience with PixelFilmStudios put them on my blacklist. I do get an occasional crash from the CoreMelt plugs that aren’t ARM native yet (most are), since my primary rig is an M2 Studio, but even those are rare and harmless.

    Go through your plugins and make sure they’re up to date. Don’t upgrade in the middle of a project. Clone your boot drive and give it a whirl, just remember that any library you open will be modified for the new version, so maybe make a copy of one library and open the copy while you test.

    EDIT: there’s also a new Pro Video Formats update so if you update FCP, get the new format update (System settings / General / SW Update) to go with it.
