Problems with FCP since upgrading to Intel Mac
on Jul 2, 2008 at 4:21:19 pm

I've been having problems with Final Cut Pro since upgrading to a 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo mac. I do a lot of exporting of video for the web where I export videos with an alpha channel background to an FLV file for Flash use. At first the capability to even export the FLVs was missing until I changed some things in Quicktime Pro. The problem I'm having now is that the percent completed timeline when exporting doesn't register anything, it just says that the job is 0% done until the export is finished. This has been okay when I'm exporting little 30 or 45 second clips. But I now have an 11 minute timeline and I can't tell if the percent completed bar is at 0% because that part just isn't working now or if it's at 0% because Fincal Cut has hung up ... which it's been doing, but I don't realize that until I go to Force Quit and see that it's not responding.

Has anyone else had to nurse Final Cut through an upgrade to an Intel Mac?


thanks,
Mark

Did you do a clean install of everything?

I used the Mac Migration feature to move contents from the old Mac to the new.

yeah, that could be a problem

It's always best to start fresh, especially going form PPC to intel.

Nope, don't do that. Start fresh with all the apps.

You can move all your documents and things like that, but never move the apps.

Also, make sure that you have at least Studio 5.1. Anything earlier will not run properly on an Intel box.

Another issue i have found when using the migration assistant going from PPC to Intel is the user preference files.

the apps for the most part should be ok because they are universal. However, if you have not cleaned out your cache files and preferences in your User Library they can cause all sorts of quirky issues.

Before you do a complete clean install, i would create a new user and test to see if the issues are still occurring.
