  • Can’t Work on Project – CRASH

    Posted by Fred Roberts on June 4, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Hello-

    Right now I cannot open FCPX. I’ve been working on a 15 minute project with a moderate amount of effects.

    Tried to edit today, and after opening, quits after trying to render.

    Ran Pro Maintinance Tools which generated this crash report:

    Effects Rendering

    This crash appears to have occurred while trying to render effects on a clip. Possible causes for this include corrupt or unsupported media, a bad filter, a graphics card issue or too many filters applied to a single clip.

    Suggested Actions

    Use Corrupt Clip Finder to check for corrupt media.
    If you are editing with long GOP media (H.264, HDV, MPEG-2, XDCAM, WMV, etc), consider letting Final Cut Pro X transcode them to ProRes for better performance.
    Consolidate filters where possible. For instance, if you have multiple color corrections on a single clip, try to achieve the same colors with just one filter.
    Remove third party filters from clips, or use Plugin Manager to disable them completely.
    Make sure you are running the latest version of OS X.

    I’ve deleted every render file.
    I’ve deleted every thumbnail file.
    I’ve trashed all preference files and caches.
    Deactivated all filters within FX Factory.
    No corrupt files found in Events or Projects folders.
    I’ve uninstalled, and reinstalled FCPX 10.0.4
    I’ve updated the OS to 10.7.4
    My external LaCie Rugged has only two folders on it, Events and Projects. The entire drive is for one project.

    Nothing. Crashes on open.

    I’m completely out of ideas. Anyone who can help me solve this will have a slave for life…or certainly my deep gratitude.

    Thank you.

    Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7.4), FCPX 10.0.4 / 2.93 GHz / 8GB Ram

    Remove all events and try to open FCPX. Confirms that the issue is related to an Event (and you may suspect which one). If it still crashes it may be a plist, XML, Cache, you missed or some other config issue.

    Also, can you export (or Share) instead of rendering?

    FCPX works a little differently than FCP7 and rendering your timeline isn’t as necessary if you don’t want to.

    Thanks I’ll try this.

    It crashes before I have a chance to select anything. It stays open the same amount of time each time I open the program. Crash report is always saying the same thing.

    Thanks.

    [Fred Roberts] “It crashes before I have a chance to select anything. It stays open the same amount of time each time I open the program. Crash report is always saying the same thing.”

    Turn off background rendering in prefs.

    Can’t really get that to stick before it crashes.

    Using Pro Maintenance Tools, the crash report focuses on this line:

    0 com.apple.Flexo 0x0000000100cc12ce -[FFEffectStack(Retiming) retimed] + 30

    I don’t have any THIRD PARTY retiming effects applied, but I have several clips retimed using FCPX native effect. How in the world would I be able to find the clip that has a native effect applied, and presumably try to disable it?

    I’ve exported an XML file, reimported it after removing the original project from the Projects Folder. Still crashes at the same time with the same crash report.

    I’m getting nowhere. I’m even afraid to start the edit over, the worst case scenario, for fear that this could happen again if I don’t find the culprit.

    Thanks for any support and ideas.

    Are you saying you can’t get to the prefs before it crashes?

    Did you move all of the Events and Projects out of the folders and relaunch FCPX?

    Easiest way to do this is make a folder called Final Cut Projects Disabled and Final Cut Events Disabled.

    Drag all the folders in your Final Cut Events and Projects folders in to the corresponding Disabled folders.

    Select all, command-r, anything that doesn’t have a green 100% marker is retimed. Find those clips, shift-n to reset the timing.

    Mine crashed on me yesterday.

    When I opened it back up it was like a brand new app.

    All events and projects gone.

    I restarted the computer and then everything was back to normal.

    I don’t know if you have tried a restart.

    Very scary.

    Yes have done this many times with no luck.

    Thank you.

    Make sure your computer is booted in 64 bit. If you have multiple projects, move them out of the folder they are stored in one at a time until FCP will open. Just went through this a few weeks ago. The editor was booting into 32 bit and creating multiple compound clips.
