I recently did a clean install of Lion (upgraded from 10.6), reinstalled FCP studio (fcp7). Reinstalled all the updated drivers for the Kona LHi and our esata card.
Here is the issue. Sometimes when playing video in both view and timeline. The video plays jerky, but is fine on the broadcast monitor. If I shut FCP and restart it, it will play fine for a bit then go jerky again. Or if I go check my email and come back...jerky.
The footage is Prores 422 HQ, digged from an HDCAM (via sdi). The media is on an internal drive (not the masterHD) and has over 1.5 TB available (it's a 2tb drive). I moved the footage to an external esata drive and get the same thing. So I am thinking it's a lion issue or a drive issue.
Has anyone come across this? Do I need to go back to 10.6? HELP!
