Have edited a 7 min XDCAM video.
I insert this sequence into a new sequence, I'm adding names of people, im doing this by cutting the sequence, duplicating, adding blue to the duplicated, then adding text over it (so a blurred lower third).
When nesting the text, duped blurred layer, I get the beach ball of death for around 10mins! It does do it, just taking a very loooong time.
I have trashed prefs, repaired disc permissions etc... never had this issue with Snow Leopard?
I have a carbon copy clone of 10.6.8 - can i just wipe ML and jump back to Snowy? I am using a SSD / HDD combo on my Mac Pro...
