Hey guys. I'm running into little here with FCP7 with some 5D footage. The client (collaborator really) wants it cut in Final Cut 7 and I haven't used it a while since I got into media composer. Now that I have to go back to final cut, I'm finding the playback unbearably choppy. I've transcoded to prores 422, LT, and proxy. Always choppy. When I take the footage into Premiere, it plays perfectly. Like butter.
What do you think is wrong? I took out all my plugins, I disabled cineform, the footage itself is great. Framerate is correct, the external hard drive isn't an issue (I put the footage on my desktop and on another drive, same results). When I play the footage outside of final cut pro, it's smooth!
I also installed quicktime player 7. Should I somehow uninstall the quicktime player that came with Maverick? I'm a little lost here and I want to get to work. Thanks guys.
FCP7 (7.0.3), Maverick, 5D footage (h264), converted to ProRes Proxy on external hard drive.
