I am cutting a show in XDCAM 1080i 35Mb VBR codec. Everything looks great from the the show camera masters. I rendered some graphics in After Effects with the same codec settings. When I play these graphics, I get dropped frames after about 4-5 secs on any of the rendered clips.
My system uses a Fusion SATA RAID 0 with about 200MB read/write. 8 Core Mac. No other HD codecs have given me this problem. I am suspecting it may be AE, because if I render to Pro Res 422 and then let FCPro render the clips in the XDCAM sequence, they play fine.
