I've had this problem right from the start on my Mac. When I load in Final Cut Studio 2 it takes six seconds to open up a file in Finder.

I've had the machine tested etc. Had apple engineers in. They found nothing wrong with the machine. But when i load in Final Cut Studio 2... it takes six seconds to open up a file in finder. Other things seem to work OK.

Does anyone else have this problem? Can it be fixed?

Is it the FCP menus that are not showing up, or is it when you choose file open that it is not letting you see things?

There are no "technical solutions" to your "artistic problems".
Don't let technology get in the way of your creativity!

It's the files. When you open Finder it take six second to open a file.

Whether you run FCP or not, Finder takes six second to open a file.

But it was after installing FCP that this problem started... or rather, after updating FCP. When you install Final Cut Studio 2 it won't work properly unless you update it. Before updating Finder works relatively quickly. After updating it doesn't.
