I have a Mac Pro (2x2.26GHz, 8Gb 1066 MHz DDR3 with three HDD) running Aperture 3.x. I wanted to export a slideshow with 300 fotos and some music. First to 1080p, later reduced to 720p. The application hangs several times (I thought this was a characteristic of Windows). The output is crap: music is OK, but after 30 pictures the screen freezes with the first image, continues lateron, but freezes again). My newer MacBook PRO (less capacity) does the export correctly on all export formats. ***?
This can't be true! Is my 2010 Mac Pro to old for this software?
I've also notices that the cores available aren't used all. The ones used are on low capacity. Using different disks (application, tempory files and output) should be an ideal setup. My Mac Book Pro has just one HDD . . . .
Please send me the magic trick, because this was one of the reasons for me investing in a huge machine!
