What is the model of your Mac (System Report>Hardware)?
Where are your events and projects located? If they are on a drive other than your start-up disk, what kind of a drive is it and how is it connected?
Can you edit single stream project's OK?

It's a 27" iMac quad core i7 2.8 GHz
The event is on an external FW 800 drive. The projects are on the same internal hard drive as the system but on a separate partition.
All other editing is perfectly fine.

We had a HPX 170 and 250 both shooting 720 DVCPRO 60p. Also a 7D also shooting 720 60p. Footage was initially imported as optimized media but the I tried transcoding to proxy in an attempt to get this angle viewer working.
WIlll I mess up my project if I move it en masse over to the other drive?

Say, coincidentally I just got a warning that the 500GB partition that the projects are on just hit the ceiling; 35 MB left! Will I compromise the project if I just move the FinalCutProjects folder over to the drive the Event is on?

There's an understatement! Yeah I've already cleared off a coupla hundred gigs. Found some massive redundancies. Rearranged others.
So I can't just move the discrete FInal Cut Projects folder over to another drive? There are no other projects in that folder besides this one in question. I've never noticed a menu item for such a manuever.

Select the project in the library and the move and copy functions will be in the File menu. Don't just move it because the file paths to media will change and you may have to reassign it. It's safest to copy it from within FCP. Verify the project integrity and then trash the old project.

Wow...discussions are finally back! That took a while...
...anyway...I'm sorry. I may have misled with that "This solved my question" but Mr. Wolsky must surely have helped plenty of people without receiving credit so let's just give him this one.
What I meant by that was that it answered my question about migrating a project from one drive to another without messing with my event. (boy I hate this terminology. If anything shouldn't Projects be called Events and vice versa? I think so. Regardless, they're dumb labels) I guess I should have rated it "This helped me."
But no, the freeze has NOT thawed. Even switching to Proxy media did not do the trick. I don't know that the full disc issue ever was in question in this regard anyway; it was just to darn full for any operational purposes. But I also had to move the projects as they were on my system disc. (or, more accurately, a partition thereof) And that didn't help the freeze either.
So I'm still editing blind, sort of. Fortunately it's just an interview. It's easy enough to do it without the footage being viewable in the angles viewer. If it were anything else it would be a much bigger problem, so I hope I can get this fixed soon.
