FCP 5 on Macbook, 2 GHz, 1 GB. AJA Io LD connected to Sony DIgibeta. FCP crashes when I try to launch Log & Capture, no matter what Device Control / Capture presets I use. My ageing G4 Powerbook handles the device control fine but since it has a very slow processor and a broken screen with a large portal into the other dimension (also known as a big black bit) I’d rather use my new machine, if at all possible. Same problem exists when I try FCP 4. Very frustrating.
This has nothing to do with the processor.
The aja goes in FW 400 ? Do you have another FW 400 device attached?
Did you do a clean install on your System?
Are your Audio Video settings correct?
System settings checked?
No other FW device attached. All settings correct. System settings checked. Didn’t do a clean install of FCP but have only recently installed 5 anyway. In fact this is the first time I’ve tried to use it. It does exactly the same thing with 4.
