Apple Pro Res 4444 problem...
on Jul 31, 2014 at 10:22:15 pm

I have received a Apple Pro Res 4444 clip, but when I put it in my timeline using it with another clip (using the alpha channel), there seems to be glitches (split screen, green, colour changes etc etc...) which only go away once I render despite the render only being green...

Why won't it let me watch it properly without rendering?

Hi Oscar,

Sorry this probably won't help, but ProRes 4444 is very bandwidth intensive, so unless you have FAST harddrives and connection, then yes, FCP is going to stutter and glitch on playback. This is evident when you render that you do not have any issues. The green bar in FCP is telling you that the footage is the right type for the sequence, however it can't know if the speed of your drives are fast enough.

Good Luck,
