I have tre 54 minutes long clips (live gig). Two of them was shot on JVC Everio and one Panasonic AG-AF101. Now what i did was i converted them to Apple Pro Res 442 (Log & Transfer) Okey so each clip is like 80gb....
No when i start to cut everything works fine like 20 seconds and then it starts to freeze and then the picture stops but the sound keeps going.
I just bought two inner hardrives...could the be to slow for this? or did i format them wrong? I used ac OS Extended (Case Sensitive, Journaled)..

I bought two of them and selected the mirror backup setup so i don´t have to worry about dataloss...
It's your drives. ProRes 422 still needs a minimum sustained data rate. RAM won't help. No need to Mirror your drives. If you backed up your media from the cameras, your data is safe. Create a RAID 0 with your hard drives. If you want safe, get an external RAID 5 enclosure.

you were right about the hardrive. I ended the "raid" and took the mirror of. Then i formated the hardrive to HSF+ Mac OS extended (Journaled) and then copyed the material there. Now it works fine and i have no problems.
Harddrive datarate with "3" 442 pro res streams (70gb per clip) was 78mt/sec (624mb/sec).
