I know this is a commonly asked question..

But I am going to keep it short and simple for you Pros' out there.

---------------------------------------------------------------
I have a MacBook Pro. I am running on Mac OS X Version 10.6.8


PROCESSOR: 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
MEMORY: 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
STARTUP DISK: Macintosh HD
---------------------------------------------------------------

I was editting in FCP7 and everything was fine until I messed with the settings. I shot footage with my GOPRO and the clips in the browser that I imported, everytime I try to view the clips they skip and lag.

The movie plays fine though in the timeline. Is there any hope?

Based upon your screenshots you've got loads of issues; primary among them is that you're trying to edit h.264, which is not an editing codec in FCP. You'll have to transcode all of that material to ProRes before editing. There are a zillion posts on the subject of transcoding h.264, so you'll have to do a search to see how that's done with Compressor or MPEG Streamclip.

Geez Wally, H.264. Who woulda' thunk it?

This is mention a million times a day. h.264 is not an editing codec for FCP 7. Transcode your clips to ProRes before you edit inside FCP. That should solve your problem.

Convert your mp3's to 16 bit 48k.

Although not supported, you can CUT GoPro stuff on FC without problem and even applying some basic filters, but don't try to go further.
To export, set the sequence to Prores, AND check Render in YUV.
I don't know why GoPro stuff asks for RGB rendering.

Actually, I'm going to disagree with Rafa on this one. While you can cut very limited amounts of h.264 on the timeline, anything over just a minute or two will make all kinds of things crap out in FCP. Hence the Out of Memory error message that is the subject of this thread.

Gotta agree with David. Even if you can cut some H.264, if you push your system enough it's going to crash. And then you risk corrupting your footage or your system files.

And I don't gonna disagree with David and Scott.
The GoPro sequences I've processed were no longer than a minute, but, believe me, I've been able to run NeatVideo on top (Prores sequence/High Precision) with no problems.
They were just test. If I had to do something longer, I'd transcode.

If you have Premiere Pro, it actually plays it pretty well. As does FCPX.

I just went through this with a large Avid project. Just needed to screen and make selects, as there's were many hours recorded. couldn't transcode it all. FCP 7 and Avid (via AMA) couldn't do it without instability.

A 64 bit app does the trick.

Multiple reasons whey go get this error and you look to have managed to have a lot of them. Is this your first FCP project? Look at it like a balance, you need equal things on both sides to optimize your workflow.

Still images are too large, the max image size you can bring into FCP is 4,000 x 4,000 but we've had issues with still over 2,000 x 2,000.

Why are you letterboxing your HD Ninja-ness into a DV/DVCPRO sequence? Match your sequence settings with your footage for starters. You won't have to render everything and if you need to deliver is some SD variant you out put it that way.

Use MPEGStreamclip to convert your footage to ProRes 422 and tell it to make the audio 16/48kHz (as mentioned). Match your sequence settings to your new ProRes footage.
