I upgraded to Mountain Lion and now whenever I select Optical Flow for retiming it quickly analyses the clip and just applies the Frame Blending effect.  I've upgraged to 10.8.1, Final Cut Pro X is completely updated, I've tried starting a new project and importing brand new clips...none of this is working.  Does anyone have a solution for this?  Thanks in advance.

    This problem has also crippled my normal workflow for the past few months, but thankfully I think it's been fixed. I ran the latest OSX software update 3 or 4 days ago (I think it's at 10.8.2 now), but was relulcant to check if optical flow was fixed because the notes about the update mentioned nothing about it. Yesterday, however, I dared to try using Optical flow on a clip just to humour myself, but it worked! Try running Software Update and see if that works for you.


    I'm still a little upset though that thoughout the past few months where FCPX users on Mountain Lion complained about this problem, Apple never said a word about acknowledging the issue, that a fix was on the way, or announced that the issue was fixed. I for one sent about 5 feedback bug reports every 2 weeks about the problem and never received a single response.

    it looks like, OF works only with Optimised Media.


    if I remember correctly, with OS10.7 it was possible to use 'straight from cam ACVCHD' too ....

    but I'm not sure, if I used that workflow. <scratching head>
