Hey, I hope someone can help explain this one. I was running my project on a full spec tower mac, but due to travel and shooting, I migrated to my laptop with FCP 6.06. At first, every thing worked fine, but one day every time I stopped the play back of the edit, it came to rest on a white frame. When I export, all it exports is the white frame with sound. At first I thought it may be the drives, but they run fine, I resaved the project, ran them on a different project. No matter what I do, FCP see's a white frame when I halt the edit. No matter which media I use. I am not able to run it on another mac at the moment, as 6.06 only runs on Snow Leopard and every other Mac I have access to right now is Lion. Anyone know what is happening here?
thanks for your response. I was using MPEG 4, but I did change the export codec and its working to an extent, in that it is exporting the files now, when the computer doesn't crash. :)
However, the white frame problem persists in the edit itself, every time I stop playing the edit, it rests on a white frame, I am wondering if its because my laptop hasn't enough power, as it all ran perfectly on my tower.
