Do I need a New Computer?
on Sep 20, 2006 at 5:34:19 pm

I have a Dual 2GHz G5 with 2.5 GB of RAM. I use 2 Cinema Displays (19s I think)
I shoot in HD and am using FCP 5.1.1. My problem is once my videos get to about 10min on the time line things start slowing to a crawl. I have the RT set to SAFE and the Video Qulity set to LOW. I am not doing anything fancy, I lay the clips down and then lay 2 text clips (These are POP Warner football games so I have one text for down and togo then another text for score and quarter)
So the big question is am I just over the limits of what my system can handle?
