Hi,

I have recently upgraded to Mavericks and am now realising that FCP has slowed down considerably. I'm using a mac pro with 10GB RAM and haven't had problems with it before. Any idea on possible solutions? Anything I could do to boost my system a bit and work more comfortably until I upgrade to FCP X (if that's compatible!)

 

Here's my EtherCheck if that would be any help

 

Thank You

    try turning off time machine when you're working in fcp.  Try disconnecting from network (pull ethernet cable or turn off airport).  Check write and read speed of all drives.  Try disconnecting all peripherals including any external drives.   Run diskutility, disk repair on all drives.   run diskwarrior on all drives.   (http://alsoft.com/)
