STP reference the entire media of a clip edited in FCP . . . not just the edited portion. That can result in some large files being brought over. Also, when you send a clip over, use the base layer option if you can, or export an mp4 to bring in to STP.
If you're ready to do the post audio work on a finished FCP project, export an omf file. Close FCP, then open the omf file in STP. That can help.
Other "obvious" but still good to review considerations . . . have enough RAM? Is there enough disk space? Are you using a different media drive than where the system is located?MacPro Dual 2.6, Mac OS X (10.4.8), Final Cut Studio Suite 5.1
Currently Being ModeratedJul 31, 2008 11:59 AM (in response to jimi5150)i think the first possibilities applies for me, since my original audio files are huge, each exceeds an hour!
i tried the omf method, but it had its own problems. whenever added effects on certain clips, they would be removed, after i close the app and open it again... yes, i saved before quitting!
what i will try doing is to edit the sound scene by scene, so i will work on each scene individually on FCP and soundtrack Pro . hopefully, this will work!
ill let you know what will happen... and keep your suggestions coming!Intel MacPro, Mac OS X (10.5), 4GB RAM + 256 VGA + 600GB + Dual Display
