FinalCutPro 10.1.1 on MacBookPro with 4 gigs ram stalls and will not play back. Yesterday I was able to reboot and it played, today it just will not play although eacc clip in this three minute video has been redered. Seems like I was able to throw away certain pref files in the past to get it up and running, but I don't remember which ones. Any help is appreciated.

MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.6)

    How is your free stage space? Do you have a separate drive for your llibraries and media?


    In the Viewer Display dropdown, set playback to Better Performance.


    Open up Activity Monitor to see what's going on with memory while this playback issue is going on.. Check the swaps info,


    4 GB is cutting it close with 10.1. If your model permits, increase that to 8 GB.
