7D footage stutter/dropped frames in FCP Studio timeline
on Jan 12, 2010 at 7:55:18 am

Greetings,

I've successfully converted my 7D footage from H.264 to Apple ProRes422(HQ) mov files. However, each time I try to play one of the files in the FCP timeline, the image stutters and I get a 'dropped frames' error message. Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening?

Many thanks for sharing your time and expertise.

Kia

You need a faster (RAIDED) hard drive with a fast connection to support data throughput

Or a cheaper easier solution is to re-encode your H.264 to ProRes(LT).

I don't remember the numbers off the top of my head but ProRes HQ is about 220Mbs/sec, ProRes is about 140Mbs/sec and ProRes LT is about 100Mbs/sec.

SATA drives can handle ProRes and ProRes LT but generally not ProRes HQ. Unless your shooting out to film you don't need HQ anyway.
