When I open the waveforms or vectoscopes window Fcpx freeze and the MacBookPro also. This happens every time. So I have to force restart.

I run the diagnostics and says no issues. ( I was thinking about Graphics Card issues )

Fcpx version latest. / MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) / MacOS 10.12.14

Any thoughts what its going wrong ?

1- Library and media should not be on the system drive, but on a very fast external drive.
2- What percentage of your system drive's total capacity is free space?
3- Run Disk Utility to Repair all connected drives, especially the system drive.
4- Hold the Option and Command keys together while launching FCPX, when prompted, delete the preference files.

Thanks Fcpx guru, I have done all that already.
Also I send MacBook to apple care , they checked they saw no hardware problem.
They recommended just to reinstall a clean macOS.
I done that and for a little time was everything ok. Yesterday the symptom returned.

Create a new admin user, then launch FCP X with the new user account. See if it makes any difference. This is just for troubleshooting purposes. Try this first, then post back.

Um, did you install this AFTER 12 noon, on a Tuesday or Thursday, when it is not raining? Cause that could be the issue. Or maybe check the air pressure in the tires?

Yeah, what Ronny said.

* But if you reinstalled OS X from scratch, did you restore from a backup (TimeMachine or something) or did you install everything from scratch? If you restored from a backup, we could be restoring corrupted FCPX system file(s).

* In addition to Ronny's testing the user account, I wonder if we have something corrupted inside of a Library? That's happened to me twice in the past 7 months. So could this be Library specific? A corrupted Library would not be effected by re-installing anything, also.

Thanks for response ..
It was raining yes. Maybe the strong lighting has affect the Library.

But yesterday I worked just fine . The thing I did was to turn off the backrendering, disable the skimming ( I don't need it for colorectal grading ) and change USB port of the external disk .

Worked fine.

Its happen again :(

No background rendering.
Preferences deleted

After 10-15 mins of work system freeze totally . Remind this happen ONLY when I have open the video scopes .

I have the same setup ( plugins , macOS, fcpx ) on my iMac and I don't have that symptom . So its have to be something wrong with my MacBook Pro.
Where I can find Apple Fcpx support ?
