Hi FCPX users,

 

I've started many project with the older version 10.0.0.5 and have upgraded few days ago on the new 10.0.0.6

 

There are now a new export interface, and i would like to export my finished projects, so have choose the 720p preset.

 

It really seems that exporting my project are really slow, and i'm stucked on a 3 minutes projects that only arrived to 27% after 2 hours. I never had those kind of problem on my iMac (2011) with the older version.

 

I was proposed to duplicate the project, i do it (first option, only the project), but the problem was still there !

 

Some other solutions ?


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)

    Just a shot in the dark... delete the render files for that project and try again.

    Why not, i should find where deleting rendering files first

     

    I've also tryed to wait background rendering (10 minutes for 10 secondes, but still adter that)

    I've try to use Compressor... for my 3 minutes videos it announce me 2h50 and continue to grow !

    Quit FCP X, in the Finder navigate to your project folder and trash the "Render Files" folder inside it.

    I do it... but it's still really, really slow.
    close 2 hours for 30% of a 3min project !

    You ned to give the full specs of the media in your project and of the project properties also any filters and titles applied. There's no way to assign the problem without details of what you're doing.

     

    You might want to test with a simple project and see if you are have similar performance problems.

    Yep for sure so here is informations about those slow specific project.

     

    imported file was DVCPRO HD 1080i50, PCM linéaire 48khz 1440x1080 (converted from M2T file with iHDClip

    there are no specific filters. just text incrustation (but not on all the clip) and 1 green mask up a part of the video. Some of those project just have text incrustation. So i thought it was for now real basic thinks on this project. Previsualisation works well inside FCPX.

     

    May be the problem would be those imported files. I will test as soon as possible a more basic render from that file and from the same that i could now convert with "ClipWarp".

    Luis, Why do you recommend deleting project renders in the Finder (rather than FCP)?

    I ran 10 minute project with some text incrustation HDV 1080i 29.97 to Apple device 720p, it took 17 minutes to 50%, and then 10 seconds for the remainder to load to iTunes. I ran a master file to ProRes and it took seven minutes.

    Hi guys, I am having the same issue. After applying the latest update on my brand new fully loaded Mac Book Pro Retina it appears that share/export almost does not even work. When I send something to export it just sits at 0% in the Background tasks window. Even if it does export it takes almost 30 min or more for a 1080i 3min clip to export.

     

    I must say I think this is a major bug as the previous version did not have any of these issues.

     

    Thoughts?

     

    Thanks,

    Tom,

     

    I did however take your advice and deleted the render files and that allowed for it to export. Very odd? Also do you think that by having iMovie open at the same time might cause Final Cut Pro X to lockout from export as it might be competting with iMovie on render?

     

    Thanks,

    Are you doing anything while the background task is going on? I know it's called a background task, but if you do anything during export you're taking away system resources from the process.

     

    The same thing happened with 10.0.4 I think. I number of people had significant export problems, while a great many others did not at all.

     

    The tests I've been running don't show any significant change from previous versions, and for some things like nested compound clips it's significantly quicker.

  • Tom Wolsky Level 10 Level 10 (110,135 points)

    If iMovie is rendering, very likely as they're using exactly the same system resources.

  • lanceaviator Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Nope, I actually have let the machine sit to itself while it exports. In fact from looking at this from a wider scale I see that it might be a render issue more than an export issue. When I first upgraded it would export but over time I would export start to slow until it no longer would export and would just sit.

  • Tom Wolsky Level 10 Level 10 (110,135 points)

    The share bar is also incredibly inaccurate. I find on most of my exports that it starts very slowly and then gets to 50 or 70 percent and then takes off. In fact to Apple devices, the whole encode is about 50%, the remainder is loading into iTunes, which is a matter of seconds. It would be nice if there was a time remaining display in the background tasks HUD.
