I just upgraded to FCE 4.0 from 3.5HD and now key-framed motion clips that worked fine before die repeatedly with dropped frames. I've set RT to safe and dynamic and the memory cache to 80%, and while FCE is resident on my hard drive the files are on the G-Raid linked by firewire (not USB) where the scratch disks, waveform and thumbnail caches, and autosave vault are pointed.

Will upgrading RAM to 4 GB help? How about a new 7200 rpm hard drive with 16 meg cache?

What else should I do?
MacBook 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.6.6), 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 DSRAM G-Raid 2 TB external
