Disable AppNap for FCP-X if you migrate to Mavericks!

Just passing on notes from other discussions.

In Mavericks - Apple enabled a new thing called App Nap to provide for better battery performance on laptops.

Unfortunately, unless you disable it for specific applications, it will interrupt backgound processes.

For FCP-X users, that means it can interrupt background rendering.

You can disable it by going to your Applications folder - selecting FCP-X and invoking Get Info - then you'll find a "disable App Nap" checkbox.

Disable it - and you won't have any rendering problems.

Again, this is only for those running Mavericks.

FWIW.

Thanks for the reminder. I've finally gotten around to doing it. I'm assuming it would also be a good idea for Compressor as well.

Have they really done it again?

Just as we are all settling down have they really released an OS which has created a whole bunch of new problems with FCPX?

Will they have time to patch these up before releasing 10.1?

It seems extraordinary that just as people are beginning to have faith in them again they bowl another Googly at us.

Sorry all you non cricket fans you'll just have to Google "Googly"!

[James Ewart] "Just as we are all settling down have they really released an OS which has created a whole bunch of new problems with FCPX?"

If by "whole bunch" you mean "one" (which is trivial to fix since they built in a system for fixing it at the same time) - then yes.
