hello, i added a filter affect to a clip in final cut and i am getting a " dropped frames warning." it is telling me to either turn off unlimited rt, lower compression data rate, close open sequences.lower the preference for real time audio tracks, or increase the speed of your system. Where do i go to lower the compression data rate, and also where do i go to increase the speed of my system?
That almost always indicates that your hard drives do not have enough throughput. You'll need to spell out specifically what type of media drives (firewire 400, 800) you're using and what video codec you're editing if you want more precise help.
i went to the "about my macintosh" section, and it says about up to 800 mb / per sec under firewire. The camera im using is an panasonic AVCCAM HMC150. the files come out as MTS files. I then convert them in a program called cineform into MOV files. what do i do about the dropped files warning? My computer is a mac osx.
Obviously, this is a late response. However, my best guess (for anyone out there experiencing a similar hindrance) is that though the MTS files were converted to MOVs, they may not have been converted to ProRes, Final Cut's native codec.
