delayed playback in FCP
on Apr 22, 2008 at 5:47:06 am

Playing DVCPro HD 720p in FCP. When I hit the spacebar, I wait anywhere from 5-20 seconds while the pinwheel spins... and then it goes. I can scrub like mad and get instant response.

Mac Pro 2.66 x 2
4 GB RAM
OSX 10.4.11
Kona LHe in slot 3 (4x)
Single SATA 3Gb drive for video in bay 2
FCP 5.1.4 with appropriate Kona driver

I've checked sequence settings. The Kona LHe is installed and set up according to AJA specs. Drive speed is near 50 MBps. No conflicts according to the AJA utility. It was working previously; I'm not sure what I did to break it. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Did you setup your PCIe slot configuration Utility properly?

Yes, I set it up according to the documentation on AJA's website.

That's the kind of thing that happens when your drive is asleep & has to wake up.

It's repeatable though, so unless my drive is falling asleep instantly (a narcoleptic hard drive?) I don't think that's it.

I changed to a different PCI Express Profile in the Expansion Slot Utility and it seems to have resolved the issue.

Okay, maybe not. It's back to it's old tricks. It's tough trying to edit when you have to wait 5-15 seconds every time you want to play a clip. I tried playing musical cards with the PCIe slots, but still no joy.

I purchased a program called Spotless that allows you to disable Spotlight completely. For some reason Spotlight's indexing wasn't playing nice with FCP. Now that Spotlight is disabled, FCP is working perfectly. Go figure.
