FCP7 problems
on Dec 8, 2016 at 2:54:22 pm

Hi, I'm using FCP7 for a multi-track (24 video tracks) edit and having problems!
I guess I shouldn't be surprised with such an old software, but are there any solutions to the constant 'out of memory' messages.
I'm running a 2 year old 27" iMac, with full RAM and an Apple SSD. The footage is all PR422 1080p. The footage is on an external USB3 drive.
I need to say also that I am not a professional video editor, I am in my later years and re-visiting my past occupation as an experimental film-maker.
Perhaps I also need to look at changing my NLE, what would the best one be that didn't require to much re-learning? Resolve or FCPX or Premiere?
Cheers

Do you have a lot of still images? They can present problems if they are scaled too large. Also, a simple restarting of the computer can help.

What Warren said. The most common reason I got OUT OF MEMORY messages, is when the stills were over 4000 pixels on any side. FCP 7 doesn't do larger than 4K...and that goes for stills too.

If an FCP7 project file is greater than 100MB (yes, MB) then you are prone to crash the application and memory errors.
I had that constantly while working on my documentary and discovered it in one of the Apple forums. What i had to do is to slim down the timeline. it may be cumbersome but works.
