FCPX Flow transition is killing me
on Nov 18, 2017 at 5:54:49 pm

About three months ago I needed to use flow. I watched Simon demonstrate MFVX's tool and was impressed so I tried the one in FCPX. EVERYTIME I try to use it I got a beach ball. I chalked it up to my slow RAID.

Now I'm on a brand new Tech 24TB 8 drive RAID and it just happened again!

Anyone else having trouble with this?

It’s usually a very fast process

What kind of machine do you have? Have you contacted mvfx about it?

On what sort of footage- codec/resolution/length. Takes about 4 seconds on my stock MBP.

I was on a 2014 i7 iMac pro then moved to a 2013 Mac Pro 6 core 16 gb ram. Files are Pre res 422.

this is the flow that comes with FCPX. I will buy Simons on Monday, but I cannot figure out why this would be an issue.

Are the clips longer than an hour? What version of OSX & FCPX are you running?

Clues: The timeline is HD 1080 29.97 ,the clips in questions are full 4K 23.97 RED footage. I think I must be hitting a memory ceiling. Only 16GB on the mac pro.

Is there any background activity happening?

Have you tried on a 23.98 timeline first?

Yeah I would definitely boost the memory- 16GB is way low for a Mac Pro.

I have a mid 11 27" iMac with 24 GB of ram. I was trying to use compressor with FCPX still running and it virtually stopped. Now I close FCPX and everything else and compressor cranks along. So I think you are right that it is a memory issue. Turn on the activity monitor and it will indicate how much memory is being used.

I am planning to get a new "loaded" iMac. Should I plan on adding 64 MB of RAM (after market of course)? I expect to be using 4k in the future.

Also consider the best graphics card you can get.

iMac Pro is supposed to drop any day now- might want to wait a bit.
