Decollations Level 1 (0 points)

Everytime I launch Final Cut Pro X, I go to playback some of my media in the timeline and then I get the spinning beachball cursor and then I have to force quit the program. This only started happening after the 10.0.7 update. Is anyone els having this problem or does anyone know how to fix it or when the next update will be?????

    I suggest two things.

    1) Trash your Preferences files.

     

    2) Upgrade to 10.0.8

    I don't think 10.0.8 is out yet. I check for updates all the time on the apple store...and how do I trash preference files?

    Use Preference Manager from Digital Rebellion.

    My apologies. I just checked and I am on 10.0.7.  I support Tom Wolsky's suggestion.

    Are you on 10.0.7 and having/had the same problem? or is it just me? Because I read on another discussion that everyone who updated to 10.0.7 is having this problem.

    I am not having the problem, although I did have to trash preferences the other day when I sent FCPX into a hang condition through my error.

    kk now i downloaded the preference manager but if i click "trash" that won't erase any of my projects or events or anything like that will it?

    No.

    Just tried it...same thing still happens. I am forced to quit the program because it stops responding.

    Did this ever get resolved? I am having the same kinds of problems. Have trashed preferences several times. Have completely removed FCPX and installed a fresh copy from the app store (twice!). I have to restart FCPX regularly to get it working again. Pretty frustrating. Also having other issues with flashing plugins, etc (another thread). Are we all just waiting for Apple to fix this?

    Absolutely no information here. When does it crash? What are you doing? What's your system, computer, drives? What's your media? I haven't crashed either .6 or .7.

    Hi Tom. I guess I wasn't really asking specifically for help on my issues. I should have stopped after my first sentence: "Did this ever get resolved?" What followed was more like whining and complaining. But since you replied, I'll try to get serious.

     

    I have not discerned a pattern to the crashes. Sometimes when I copy with the intention of pasting attributes, I will notice that it doesn't work. Control clicking to move to the destination clip will not update the viewer or the Inspector. I usually restart at that point. Sometimes this will happen every couple attempts and I am restarting every few minutes. Other times it will work for an hour. The "unexpectedly quit" events seem random to me. It's always during some kind of timeline editing. I know that's not very helpful. Of course, Apple receives the crash reports but not the restarts when things stop working or I get the spinning beachball.

     

    I always optimize media at import. Original media is either from a Panny GH2 (AVCHD) or GH3 (MOV).

    Been hearing of a lot of render crashes with with 680MX, wonder if it's happening with this nVidia card as well. Seems to be an iMac problem.

    Actually take that back. Not related.
