I'm having a weird issue in FCP 7. I'm throwing on some subtitles, and sometimes they have to render and sometimes they don't. It's video from the same interview clip and the titles are nothing fancy, just text without drop shadow or anything.
It's so strange – in one section of the timeline it will play back without render and in others it has to render. I tried copying the same clip with the same title to a later position in the timeline. Sure enough, in the later position it needed a render where as in the earlier position it didn't. Other than the position in the timeline, I can't see any difference.
It's first of all really annoying to have to render all the time, and secondly I'm a little concerned it's indicating some underlying issue with the footage or the sequence settings. Does anyone have any ideas?
We're editing on two machines and one had the wrong sequence settings a couple days ago, but we corrected that. Could that still be effecting this?
We're editing in Apple ProRes HQ 1920x1080 23.98fps. (The incorrect settings had been 1440x1080.)
