FCP 7 beachballs when copying files in finder ?
on Jun 27, 2012 at 4:29:49 pm

this is new. anytime i do some copying in finder, FCP beachballs until the file transfer is done. This happens even when using drives FCP doesnt have access to.

never seen this behavior before but its pretty annoying.

Anyone else see this?

Post more about your setup there. What drives does FCP have no access to that you do on the same mac?

You're working on a LAN or are the media files locally stored? or? Also what codecs are you editing from and to?

im not on a SAN or shared storage setup. All local drives either esata or firewire 800 or internal.


working at any framerate although most everything here is XDCAM HD 422 60i.

Final cut has access to all the drives, but even when copying files from drives that FCP doesnt need to access,ie no files from that drive are in the prject and not set for scrath disk use, it still beach balls.
