Mac Pro Interface sluggishness (video plays fine)(ATI Radeon)
on May 9, 2013 at 3:52:16 pm

Hi all,
I've got a mac pro (specs below) that should be able to handle the software fine.

Video (even camera native stuff) plays back without a stutter, but the UX itself is sluggish. Any window resizing takes a second to snap to the pointer, clicking between clips and events takes a second, adding keywords is really slow (and the animation is not smooth). This is all with only a single event and project in the software.

I have an ATI card with seemingly adequate ram. I've looked all over the internet, and I know the pros aren't "optimized" like the iMacs are for FCPX, but...this seems unusual. Running FPX 10.0.8

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Max Pro
2 x 2.4 GhZ 6-core Intel Xeon
24 GB DDR3
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB
OS X 10.8.3

Anyone have any thoughts on this? It's really frustrating, and basically making the software unusable for me...

ok, just realized this might not be the appropriate forum. Gonna repost in the FCPX technique one. (there's no way to move a post, right?) My apologies, dear friends!
