Playing hundreds of clips at once in FCPX
on Oct 5, 2018 at 6:32:04 pm


I'm trying to make a video where 144 small clips play at once with no special effects or text. I bring each MP4 clip (mostly shot on smartphones) in and resize them to 11% and desaturate them. I then place them side by side. All was going well until I got to around the 100th and when I try to edit the clip or move it around, the viewer goes blank and I cant see where I'm placing the clips next to each other. When I delete about 20 or so clips, it seems to restore itself and work again. I'm new to FCP, so I'm wondering if there's a better way I could have built the timeline? Or is there a better workflow that would make FCPX work better?

I would really appreciate any help or point in the right direction.

Thanks so much,
