FCP 7 viewer playback stops.
on Dec 22, 2011 at 6:18:35 pm

I have some videos converted to PRORES 422 HQ. When I bring them into the viewer and play them, the video stops 1 second in, but the audio keeps playing.

If I hit "L" to make the video play faster-no problems, it plays fine (but fast)

Once it's in the timeline it plays fine, only the viewer stops.

Tell us about the hard drive(s) on which your media is stored.

They're on my internal hard drive. I'm on a Mac Pro.

Our department upstairs transcoded all these videos, some of them play fine and I assume they used the same settings for all of them.

is 26.5 MB/sec too high?

[Mike Throck] "They're on my internal hard drive. I'm on a Mac Pro."

Internal "system drive" or do you mean a separate internal "media drive"?

If it's the former above, that's your problem. Video cannot playback from a busy system drive at speed without dropping frames. It's most likely doing so from the timeline because you have your RT settings set to "dynamic," which adjusts playback quality to allow for low system overhead (slow hard drive in this case).
