This is a FCPX 10.0.6 problem, currently latest version, just upgragded from 10.0.5.

I have about 1.1TB of events on a Thunderbolt 6TB drive (Pagasus R6). This is a transition from an older 1TB drive that became too small.

I just imported about 50gb across maybe 100 clips, and as I try to move just one Event into their correct destination subfolders (I use Year-Month as my clip data structure in FCPX) then I get the "Loading Events" window which takes forever. The first 80 subfolders go fast, but by the time I get to the 90th, it takes as much as 10mn per folder, and FCPX crashes before finishing anyways.

I tried trashing the pref files, but to no avail. I am not displaying the waveforms.


So I am basically unable to manage my events at this point.




OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2

    Are there other (or MULTIPLE) projects loading? Or is it to just ONE project?


    The reason I ask is, loading slows down if you've numerous projects on the same drive. (If so, there are ways around this.)

    I guess I would use Event Manager X to move all but the most recent project and event to not-in-use status. Then sequentially bring events and projects on line and see how that affects loading and stability. In my case, I've definitely found 10.0.6 to be more flaky than previous versions and frequently using EMX to restore a semblance of predictability and responsiveness.


    Good luck.
