FCP X Running Really Slow
on Apr 10, 2014 at 6:59:52 pm

I have a mac mini running mavericks with a 2.6 i7 processor and 16 GB of ram. I am cutting a project on a 1TB G tech drive over Firewire 800 with 30 percent of its space free.

The media is all 5D transcoded and optimized in FCPX at Pro Res.

I have tried turning off wave forms and downgrading clip appearance in the timeline all the way over to make them look like blank bars.

I am really frustrated and don't know why FCPX is still running slow.

In the past, FCP 7 would run faster with the same footage and hard drive, but with less ram and an older processor on a macbook pro laptop I used to use.

Can anyone help me with suggestions?
