I haven't been editing for about 3-4 years and am starting to get back into it. I have an early 2009 2.23Ghz 8 core MAC Pro with 6GM RAM. I am also using my internal esata drives for speed.
When I work with 720 and 1080 I get the dropped frames error, sometimes only with the video and sound. It gets a little worse if I add supers, etc. I turned off unlimited RT and even turned off the audio waveforms.
Is there anything I can do to play back my video in real time? I have never tried prores yet, but should I trancode to 4:2:2 then back out to 720 or 1080?
I am also shooting with an HVX200 and try to use p and pn while recording to lower my data stream.
Any suggestions appreciated.
