I am sending/exporting a single audio (dialogue) file to STPv3 from FCPv7 in order to reduce the background/room noise level. I usually do this by selecting a region of pure room noise and using the 'Set noise' function. However although i can happily select a region of audio (dialogue) if i try to select a region of low level 'noise' I get the spinning wheel of doom for a couple of mins.
This renders the program entirely unusable and only recently (randomly?) started happening. I'm not aware of doing anything differently and been using this same set-up for years.
This seems to happen on all my audio files so not just one corrupt file.
However it only happens on the audio from camera A (Canon 7D) and NOT camera B (Canon ***).
No problem with audio from a different source Marantz or Zoom recorders)
If I re-save file (from .stap to .wav) = exactly same problem.
If i compress the whole track to raise entire levels = same problem.
I've done all the usual like rebooting machine and reloading everything.
Im totally foxed and any pointers gratefully received. I have a deadline and tearing hair out!
PS. I've since heard that apparently OS 10.9 has some issues with STP that weren't there with OS10.8 and that these bugs are unlikely to be fixed by Apple. Can anyone out there confirm or deny this rumour?!!
