I am editing XDCAM EX footage as well as mpeg4/h264. I can't believe Apple didn't resolve this issue yet. It's Version 10.0.6!

I can re-render parts of my timeline, but that's not a solution, it's a workaroud.

    It's not an XDCAM issue, its a new 10.0.6 issue.  We are waitint for a bug fix.  XDCAM should work great aside from this new bug on export.

     

    If you are getting that in the timeline that is a hardware issue.

    I noticed this on my MBP, usually when adding transitions.  What I found was happening was that I was trying to do too much at once for FCPX to handle on my machine, and it would end up dropping frames (i.e. the green frames) every now and again.  Fixes that worked for me- 1: delete the tansition where the dropped frame was, chang the length of the clip, let FCPX background render, and then reinsert the transition.  2: Get a faster computer...once I upgraded to an early 2012 iMac and maxed the RAM, I've NEVER had this problem since.

    "chang the length of the clip, let FCPX background render"

     

    Why do you have to render the clips when there is no transition? What are the specs of the clips?

    You didn't actually answer my question except maybe in mp4. Is this really MPEG-4 framework media? You need to optimize your footage.

    I have been having this issue for a few days now. Just resolved it! Were you using imported Motion 5 templates and titles? It seems there are some issues in FCPX when you are stacking multiple bits of 3D graphics and transitions. Tom's suggesstion may be best.

     

    I also had this problem with certain footage I have exported from Camtasia and rendered Motion 5 video. Try optimizing your event footage including any compound clips. Right click on your clip --> transcode media --> create optimize media. Re-render your project and all should work. It worked for me. Hope this helps.

    I know this sounds kindda dumb, but I was having the same issue but I resolved it without doing any updates. I simply put a basic text over the clips and deleted "text" and the green stopped
