Final Cut Pro 7 "out of memory" when rendering?
on Oct 13, 2011 at 8:20:14 pm

This is weird.

I have some videos and a bunch of jpegs in a FCP7 timeline. The video is working fine. For the photos, though, I'm getting the red line to render. When I render, I'm getting an "out of memory" message. However, it's rendering video just fine.

I'm working on a MBP with 4GB of RAM. It's handled HD video flawlessly for years, so I'm not sure why it's not taking a liking to some JPEGs.

Any ideas what's going on here?

What are the pixel dimensions of the stills?

I'm on a different computer now, but they were "L" RAW files from a Canon 7D. The RAW files were edited in Photoshop and exported as full resolution JPEGs.

I'm not sure if this is correct, but Google tells me pixel size for the 7D is 5184 x 3456.

Oh, and I've used this approach before (Large RAW files exported as full resolution JPEGs)and it worked fine in FCP7.

What's even more confusing is FCP will render some of the JPEGs, but not all of them. (Even though they're all from the same shoot, from the same memory card, and were exported with the same settings......hmmm)

That's too large for FCP. FCP can only handle images at a maximum of 4000 pixels wide.

Increase your stills ram cache in the settings too.
Change the stills to 72 dpi
and 2-3000 wide, no bigger then needed for a move on them.
Things will go a lot smoother.

Try taking the stills into photoshop and taking the image size down to under 3k x 3k, the. Saving them as .png. For some reason FCP likes .png much better than anything else.
