    Do you experience the same effect when having your waveforms off?
    We have a older MacBook that does the same when the Waveforms are on.

    No Issues here woking in Final Cut Pro X on a Mac Pro late 2013.

    Only time when Final Cut Pro X hits its knees "sometimes depending on the length" is when working only in REDcode.

    Here you go a Time Machine icon for the CalDigit T3.

    Since I have three I had to create one to keep them apart, maybe you find some use.

    Hey guys!

    Anybody interested in Apple Motion Shapes?

    debating if I should upload the custom created shapes that we used on previous projects.
    For example:

    I agree that statement can be somewhat misleading. The actual editing/finishing was done in 6 weeks. Pre-cutting was done on location during the shoot, which was done over a period of 11 months with many intervals.

    Just imagine you make a documentary that takes a year shooting in different places. You may log your footage after every shoot and you may start organizing and pre-cutting some parts of the story. Then a few weeks later you have another shooting period and you also do some pre-cutting of that. When all the footage is shot you assemble the pre-cuts to create the final edit. That does not mean your editing has taken a year.

    Got it right on the spot! :)

  • Scrubelicious replied to the topic 'G-Raid failure. I need HELP, PLEASE!' in the forum.
    4 weeks ago

    It is possible to get a similar read performance as RAID 0" if" the controller uses multiplexing to read data.
    Here is a good example using the T3 from CalDigit:

    MB/sec:
    Single drive: 184 write / 181 read
    2-drive mirror: 184 write / 198 read
    3-drive mirror: 184 write / 271 read

    A 2-drive mirror offers brief spikes of better performance than a single drive averaging 9% faster than a single drive—not nothing but not much either.
    ...
    Mirroring generally runs at the speed of a single drive or a bit slower for writes (all drives can be written simultaneously, but there is some overhead). A mirror can offer higher read speed, but not necessarily.

    If you are on a RAID 1 and you are having issues with "working" drive as Jason mentioned this could be data/soft corruption.

    Performance wise RAID 1 speed should correspond to a single drive since both drive in RAID 1 would write and read the data simultaneously.

    On older controllers or controllers that use heavy software processing you might find tad slower. Noticeable? :whistle:
    Copying 4GB (RAID 1 = Drive 1) on a thunderbolt connection shouldn't take that long...


    Just FYI when purchasing drives at the same time (G-Tech enclosed drives) there is always the chance the other drive(s) might also fail.

    Sebastian I hope you can get your data back. Crossing my fingers for you.

    Misleading yes and no, you still can export alpha matte as ProRes by choosing only Alpha in the Color (Farbe) drop down menu.

    Your right they could move Alpha option to another section or have it appear depending on the codec, not to confuse user that are not aware of the codecs abilities. Maybe in Motion 6? ;)

    I'em guessing your external hard drive is a USB single drive?
    To make your day easy as Ronny suggested let Final Cut Pro X transcode your RED footage to a Proxy.
    When you are done all you do export your XML to DaVinci using the original footage.

    If you like keep media where it is select "Leave files in place" and you can also select "Create Proxy media" from the Media Import window.

    Hi, to answer your questions,

    1. No you can export ProRes 422 higher then 1920x1080, you will lose some metadata.
    2. I would go over there learning site
    3. Useful for grading or editing? Editing = ProRes for colouring = RAW (REDcode)
    4. Not sure what you mean to match? But you can transcode the files in Final Cut Pro X (Optimize) or Compressor
    5. Again you want to use the RAW files.

    On the performance side, what are your specs of your Mac that you are working of and where and how are they stored?
    Sounds like performance issue...

    Feel free to contact me if you need any help...

    I come across this when receiving a project from another editor or form another location.

    This is somewhat a pain, but what as worked for me was I would try relink all the files at once. After that I would relink each file separately that didn't relink. This has worked for me.

    I just assign the Relink command to Option - Shift R and go to town.

    that the skin loses it's fitted shape do to the heat from the Macbook Pro produces and the material that the skin is made from (silicon I guess) starts to rub off on the keyboard.

    When you say it only sees 4 GB of RAM, what only sees it?
    If the Mac (which I'em guessing) itself only sees 4 GB in the About this Mac window then you have bad RAM.
    On a Mac that has more than 4 GB of RAM installed, Final Cut Pro allows a maximum memory allocation of 2.5 GB.

    On your feeling migrating to another NLE, going from Final Cut Pro 7 to Adobe Premiere CC is not that bad considering they build on the same concept and Adobe offers Final Cut Pro 7 hotkey settings. But on the performance, speed and workflow wise. I'em happy to use Final Cut Pro X over Premiere any day.

    But back to your issues, you could try the trial on both Premiere and Final Cut Pro X see how it reacts to your hardware.
    First impression is that your Mac having a issue.

    There are many ways you can do this, recently I had to be on the move really quick so I just Duplicated the project after all the transcoding Proxy and organisation was done. Went into the Final Cut Pro X Library and remove only the RED files.
    You have to be careful and know what gets transcoded into a proxy file.

    Renamed the file to name_mobile and took the Library on the road. After that I will just export a XML or open up the Mobil file at the home station and dragged the wanted project over into the original Final Cut Pro X Library.

    Just be careful what you remove and you have to stay in Proxy mode when using the "mobile" Library.

    In this case there is no audio on the footage.
    Fixing the drift is not the problem, the problem I see is that the drift "speed" picks up during the clip.

    Morning!

    I have some RED footage that was shot in 25fps and external audio which seems is form a Zoom.
    The Audio is drifting out of sync. Audio in case is drifting faster then the image.
    Driven me up the wall... I tried everything transcoding in Compressor changing the speed it up in Final Cut Pro X.
    When I mark some of audio queues with the image and adjust the speed (approx. 94%) it will still dirt out.

    Like if the audio is no continues speed???

    And suggestions?
