I'm on a Mac Pro Quad Core tower running OS 10.7.5, using FCP 7.
Just shot some Sony EX-1 footage that plays fine in the viewer. Have used this camera and this software often with no problems.
Just opened a new FCP project and imported this new footage. The video is not smooth but is playing in a "stuttered" fashion. I thought perhaps it needed to be rendered but that did not solve the problem. I closed the project and reopened it. Still stuttering.
I opened a recently completed project that used the same camera and now this older project is suddenly stuttering as well. I'm a bit flummoxed by this. Did an FCP setting change somewhere that I need to reset?
