Playback performance not perfect
on Sep 26, 2013 at 4:38:35 pm

I have two systems with FCX. On my 12-core (64GB RAM, Radeon HD5770 w/ 1024MB, Areca-driven 8-drive RAID 6 that gets about 700MB/Sec), the playback hitches and stutters every now and then.

Either it's a little hiccup in the audio, or a skipped frame, or maybe the audio goes out of sync for a short while and I have to stop to get it back again. I'm running an AJA iOExpress with the latest drivers.

This seems like a robust machine for the job and the drive is certainly up to the task.

Is Final Cut X just unable to provide perfect A/V Output like Final Cut 7 used to? Or, could I be missing something in the setup that is causing this?

I guess the first question should be, are any of you getting absolutely rock-solid playback performance, 100% of the time?
