Newer, Faster Macbook Pro has poorer playback?
I just upgraded my Macbook Pro from the 2010 17″ i7 (dual core) to the current 17″ i7 (quad, 2.5). I also doubled my RAM to 8 gigs. I’m using the same external Glyph drive to play the same MXF ProRes files, but on the newer computer, I’m getting intermittent jerky playback that was not there on the other computer.
Is anyone successfully using this same computer? Has anyone else made this upgrade? Have you experienced this? Does anyone have any idea of why this is happening and what I can do to fix it?
