I am working with FCP7 many years, so I know pretty much what am I doing. But, at the moment FCP wont work. Sometimes I get an Error message: Out of Memory - while render, sometimes it quits unexpected.
I am using footage as always from Nikon D800 and converted to FCP footage so I dont need render during montage.
I notice the software crashed when I insert simple Text or some of FX Factory or BorisFX effects. I did many projects with those effects with no problem.
I delete all 4 files from Preferences and trash it, I delete all old render files from Tools-Render Manager menu, made repair disk, check all with Repair Tool Pro ... But no success.
It is true, this troubles was started after upgrade from Yosemite to ElCaptain.

Any Idea, before I downgrade OSX? Uninstall and Instal FCP again before downgrade? Setup something?

Converted to what codec, specifically?

Neither one of those OS versions support FCP 7. In fact, more things tend to not work the further you get from a supported OS. It's VERY important to run your editing software on supported OS versions. IN this case, 10.6.8 or 10.7...10.8 is the farthest I'd go, as Compressor and Motion and QMaster break in 10.9.
