Final Cut Crash - Large Content Documentary Project
on Mar 9, 2012 at 4:08:40 pm

EDITORS & FINAL CUT PEOPLE:

We have a large content project with many sequences and a ton of footage (on a Mac Pro it takes probably 20 minutes to open the full project). The project is being run off a lacie 12tb 4big quadra w/firewire 800. We have roughly 9tb of footage. Almost everything is Prores footage, not a lot of stills, and nothing out of the ordinary.

The project crashes on us several times a day creating time lost as well as, at times, valuable edits lost because of the crash.

Any advice/solutions/fixes to make FCP more stable?

Help!

Divide your project in smaller segments and things will go faster and with less crashes.

SInce my DVD on this topic is no longer for sale (sold out, and the NLE is now EOL)...

As stated, divide the project into multiple parts. One project for the sequences, one for the footage, one for music and sound effects. One for stock footage. Part of the power of FCP comes from the ability to open multiple projects at one time.

Shane,

You're not updating it for "X"?

I'm not using "X," and don't have plans to unless I am hired on a job that uses it. But then I would be struggling because it is just THAT different.

Maybe I'll do one for Avid...

Danny,
What size is the project file?
Where do you run it from?

Neil.
