i haven't changed anything in my settings, and out of nowhere, everytime i press play, i get the spinning ball for at least 10 seconds.


I can scroll through the media with mouse, no problem.


Tried trashing my preferences with preference manager. Didn't change a thing.


Running Mavericks on an early 2008 8-core Xeon Mac Pro.



Thank you for the help!!

Mac Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    Do the clip's properties match your Sequence settings?  Are you using a video format that FCP works with natively?

    Hi David


    thanks for your help.


    Actually, i get this issue in both the viewer and canvas.


    Yes, clip settings match the sequence settings.


    Tried with prores LT, and regular prores 422. same problem.


    Been editing for 10 years, never saw something like this before. I was suspecting Mavericks, but makes no sense as i did some jobs with Mavericks insatlled, and fcp7 worked fine.


    Thanks for help, if you have any ideas.
