Those of you experiencing beach balling in 10.1 upwards, just try this - I swear its made a difference to me.

Go to Preferences - Spotlight - Privacy and then add the location of the FCP X back up folder (its in user - movies - FCP Backups or something like that.

Maybe its just me but it seems to be snappier.

If this is all it takes, this will be fantastic.

What led you to this?

What is weird, over the last few days, I get a task bar that says FCPX is loading different Projects (old snapshot versions of my current timeline) when I am not even in that Event or viewing old projects.

Perhaps this will stall that effort!

I've seen another oddity. When copying footage from one library to another, it asks where you want it (internal or to some external location) and when I choose the internal library, it says "copying footage to library "Final Cut Pro." " Which is definitely not the name of my library.

How did you figure that one out? Trying it today...

I tried your suggestion out and beachballing is greatly reduced. Well done!

Best,
John

It was a bit of guess, but I couldn't work out what it might be writing to so early on in the process and it seemed a logical option.

Be interesting to know if it holds water.

Do you mean "FCPX_Autosave"?

The directory is called "Final Cut Pro Backups" by default it lives in the user - movies folder.

This did seem to work today. I had much less of the weird Kona flame outs.

Thanks for posting this.

Jeremy
