Question from a new member .
I'm cutting a project in FCPX on my mac running El Capitan OS . SPECS - (2.2ghz Intel core i7 , 8gb RAM, AMD Radeon HD6750M1024MB)
My problem is that i tried to import a file from an external drive where i keep all my media and rather than just what i needed, i accidentally highlighted the whole drive and now have thousands of photos from old time lapses as clips. (9999 to be exact). Now when i try to delete the clips it has created i just get stuck in beachball mode and have to force quit to get any responsiveness back.
When you have huge numbers of files and you want to delete them all at once, I've found that you sometimes just have to be patient. FCPX has to delete them and update the database and it can take quite some time.
Might be faster to create a new library and just copy over what you want to keep.
(For some reason I can't edit my own posts so apologies in advance for the stupid mistakes and bad English that I can't go back and fix)
