    Anyone get this issue resolved? Just bought a brand new Mac 12 Core OS 10.8.4 with FCP7 and 5870 graghic card. Tearing is annoying.

    Dont hold your breath... Apple wont waste time fixing this since they want you to buy Final Cut Pro X. Over 6000 views and NOT A PEEP from apple regarding this MASSIVE issue... -

    I emailed a few of the executives high up at Apple about this issue, not thinking of getting any responce what so ever ... got a telephone call the next day and said they are aware of the issue and offered up workarounds that I, and I'm sure all of us, have tried with no success.


    It's a graphic card driver issue with the new operating system ... that's why you're seeing "graphic driver" fixes on every single new build of OSX ... but it's not fixing the issue and they know it.


    Sad really .. seems easy enough to fix with a patch.


    I've tried almost every single card on the market, same issues no matter the performance of the card. I did find that a Mac Mini using the Intel 4000 HD graphics card did not have any tearing at all. Strange ... because every iMac, Macbook Pro and Mac Pro I've tried has the tearing issue.


    Apple did give me a direct line to call if the issue persists passed the new operating system updates, I'll give them a ring tomorrow and report back to the thread.

    Sad really.


    We play so much for this technology. We deserve to have this fixed. Thanks for trying to fix the issue.

    I felt the same way.  Maybe it's time ot cut it loose.  I've been using Premiere Pro CC since January and actually love it.  It's actually evolving into a faster and better program than FCP7.    Adobe has beenlistening to the creative community and FCP7 users in general and the recent updates, particularly this past months have addressed requests and issues by longtime FCP users.  Very solid.  The curve is nothing really..

    I just got rid of the tearing by changing a video setting.


    Go to to: View---> Video Playback ----> Cinema Desktop Preview - Full Screen


    View ----> External Video ------> All Frames


    Seems like the scaling refresh rate is not working well. I hope this solves it since a real fix may never arise.

    Left a voicemail then just got a call back from Apple. The lady from Apple said that the engineering team that is heading up the FCP department is aware of the issue and their solution would be to revert operating system back to Mtn. Lion to resolve the issue. Hmmmm. That's all I got.

  • motionfoundry Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Sorry  to say, they have no intention of fixing it.  They've moved on.   I'm using Mountain Lion and it is still happening.   I know it's hard but I think we have to move on from FCP7..  it's over.  Apple is only going to support OSX.  I'm using PPro cc now and really like it. 

  • ez0es Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. Well I guess I'll just have to deal with the banding....


    Can't thye make a patch for the OSX to stop the banding sheeeeesh. its so annoying.

  • motionfoundry Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    oops..  I meant  FCPX

  • behindTHEscenes5 Level 1 Level 1 (65 points)

    I, like most of us, have just continued to use FCP7 regardless of the banding. While it continues to happen, the amount at which it occurs really varies and I haven't been able to identity why. Like right now, for example, I'm working on a project that has little to no banding during playback. My workflow hasn't changed, so I don't understand why the banding would change either.


    Is Apple's logic here that if they neglect to fix FCP7 that we'll switch to FCPX? Because the reality is neglecting to fix FCP7 just drives users to Premiere and AVID.

  • motionfoundry Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    To be completely honest,  I transitioned to PPro in January and have been using it solely since about April.  PPro CC is frankly now a much faster and more powerful piece of software than FCP7.  Never thought I'd say that.   But having the 64bit capabilities with a CUDA card is just great.   The licensing is a great value now since you get 20+ programs with your subscription, AE, Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, etc.    Adobe has ****** off some old time Premiere Pro users because they have been listening and tweaking the new releases based on FCP7 users like us.  I really like the program now and how it integrates with After Effects, Photoshop and SpeedGrade.

    Has anyone down graded to snow leopard? has it worked? I am about to revert back to 10.6 if I can get a concensus that this soluation might work.


    I am currently transitioning to Ppro, althought I don't really like it as of right now. You need a filter to crop? really adobe? lol
