Has anyone experienced FCP7 crashing when editing multiple layers of Sapphire FX within the project timeline? Wondering whether it's Saphhire software or Apple hardware/software causing the sytem to crash when rendering.

Thanks.

I use Sapphire quite a bit and generally dont have any crashing issues but dont often use more than maybe 3 or 4 effects per shot max.

Which Sapphire version are you using and which effects are you applying to what type of media ?

There is a Sapphire forum they are a pretty helpful bunch

Thanks. I believe this might be a FC/hardware issue. We can do up to 3 Sapphire layers, but adding a 4th causes system crash. Our EP wants this crazy layered look for a network project and it requires up to 6 Sapphire fx on a clip.

Yeah I guess that might be taxing on your System/GPU - I tried putting 6 random Sapphire FX on a few HD clips - while it was a little like trying to wade through treacle I didnt get crashes and that was on a fairly old Macpro with an Nvidia 2800 GTS and a Kona 3

If you tell me the fx you are using in what order I could try them and see what happens just for the hell of it.

Did you try any SPEED changes along with the Sapphire layers? That seems to be the killer.

No didnt try that = but will give it a go - be interesting to see what I have to do to make it throw in the towel.
