Problem with freeze in full screen mode (sound is there)
on Feb 24, 2018 at 12:47:31 pm

The symptoms are generally as described here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/911467
No video, on stop the frame is updated.
I tried the advice described in the above thread, and I only managed to get another project (with another kind of footage) showing full screen video by reconstructing the FCP7 preferences.
However, on another roughly similar machine the problematic project shows fullscreen video properly.
Thank you in advance.
I'm on an MacBook Air w/macOS Sierra (10.12.6).

FCP 5.0.4 is a LONG time ago, but let's see if the same thing is there that's in FCP 7. VIDEO PLAYBACK>ALL FRAMES? Is that chosen?

Hi, thanks,
Sorry, I'm on FCP7, I just referred to a similar issue.
Yes, "All frames" chosen.

and what format is your source video?
and sequence settings?

is your external video playback setting the appropriate one?
if you're trying to play, for instance, PAL footage out via an NTSC setting, you can get the effect you describe.

Sorry I didn't add it, forgot while my post was in moderation. The sequence and footage date is as follows:
1920 x 1080, 25 fps, Apple ProRes 422, aspect: square, field dominance: upper (odd)
Sequence settings: HDTV 1080i (16:9)
Regards,

I'm not sure, however, if I'm checking the external video playback setting correctly, can I ask for a walkthrough?

But, the same happens with internal (laptop) screen.

Is video playback set to Digital Cinema Preview?

yes, View > Video Playback > Digital Cinema Desktop Preview - Main or - Full Screen, depending on the screen (monitor)

FCP7 is almost 8 years old. The Sierra OS is much newer. I suspect application - OS mismatch issues.

I don't recall if you've ever told us about the storage you're using and its throughput.

The point is the same setup plays full screen flawlessly on same-era (late 2010 IIRC) regular MacBook, which we worked on until my partner inadvertently updated to High Sierra. The project file is stored on internal disk, while the footage is on NTFS USB 2.0 HDD(s). Actually the one used with the MacBook Air in question is arguably much less cluttered/fragmented than the one used with regular MacBook.
The Air plays acceptably on external monitor in nearly-fullscreen size (but not in Fullscreen mode), while using Fullscreen it's just spectacularly frozen.
