Final Cut Pro Crashing issue.
on Sep 15, 2012 at 1:14:35 pm

Hey guys,

I have installed FCP 7 on my new Mac (old one is dead), but every time I try to open a project I created on my old Mac it instantly crashes. Is there any common reason for this? Really need to work on this project and can't.

Many thanks,

You have to do the usual troubleshooting. Trash your preferences. Invest in Pro Maintenance Tools from Digital Rebellion.

You mentioned "New Mac" What are the specs?

Does it crash if you open a new project?

Temporarily move your media from its original location and open the project. If it doesn't crash, you have corrupt media in your project.

Hi - Sorry for late reply, was in hospital for a week, very unexpectedly!

I have a Macbook Pro, HD version 10.7.4, 500GB, running OSX.

The project I'm trying to open on this Mac was created on my old one, which has perished. The FCP 7 on my new Mac is not from the same discs as those installed on my last Mac.

If I start a new project it works fine (apart from a few crashes when trying to launch the app) and re-opens fine, however i cannot open anything created on another copy of FCP.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated,

Thanks - R.
