I have the same computer (Vega 48 instead) and I've not observed this issue in FCPX 10.4.9. Perhaps this idea could help you but I've changed my workflow using EditReady app: now all my video sources (GH5, GoPro, Sony RX) are converted to ProRes in EditReady before they are imported to FCPX.

Workflow; edit as usual, turn on and off audio channels in clip. i.e. only ch 2 are on in a clip with 8 ch.
When doing an export of xml, and taking this via X2pro and into Nuendo,
Both fcpxml 1.8 and 1.9, mojave and Catalina.
A lot of extra work here now... Darn.
Anyone else ?
In System preferences> Display you must see mirror option checkbox available.
I've just paid. Now wait the toy:cheer:
Interesting question. Just XtoCC (
) translates FCPX XML files to FCP 6/7 XML files that are compatible with Adobe CC apps. I think that if you export FCP original projects to XML 6/7 files format you must import them successfully in Adobe CC... Am I wrong???
There are already RAID 0 hard/soft solutions avalaible for Mac . I’m OWC Thunderbay 4 bay owner (SoftRaidXT) . Nice performance for 4K

It's really disappointing to have to do this when I have paid all of this money. Oh well.
Just a bit on advice on troubleshooting this. I simply starting removing stuff from the timeline one at a time until I found the issue. Then I walked back through each change I made to the issue component until I found precisely what the issue was with the component itself.
Simon's tutorials are recommended by Apple as advanced resources for Motion. Who knows what will happen in the future, Will Apple contract to Mr Simon? ..
As FCPGuru wrote videoscope are the main tools for grading. But, where do you check your videoclips? external monitor? computer display?
I'm currently only using my iMac 27" 5K Retina display calibrated with Datacolor SpyderX . I know that best choice would be an external broadcast auto calibrated monitor but I feel that I can get decent results with an iMac panel (correctly calibrated )
When Mac Pro 7.1 (together a Catalina OS update) were launched last Fall, Apple stated that FCPX and Motion will take advantage of multiGPU Mac computers (due to Metal2). Even though my 2019 iMac 27" has a great Pro Vega 48 I thought that add a second eGPU would be a good idea. I chose an OWC eGPU external chasis (sales) and I bought a Radeon Vega 56. Today I think was a right choice
I have not done before/after tests because of I bought the iMac just when Apple updated FCPX and Catalina. But I can say that FCPX is able to use both internal/external GPU (as you know you can check the eGPU in render/share playback preferences). I don't know the total impact about renders time on your specific computer, but I think that you must also notice a substantial improvement

Find me at least five tutorials in the same quality as you can find on VideoCopilot site.
Moving 3D Lines
Do you want high level Motion tutorials? OK, you could begin with Mr Simon Ubsdell tutorials
There are 150 video tutes " for god level " in Motion, enjoy it!
I'm very frustrated with pixelfilm plugins. I can confirm that Propatch 3.0 also crash fcpx and auto tracker doesn't work correctly. I'd recommend you plugins from Coremelt, Factory , Motionvfx , perhaps more expensive but in my case they have shown quality, stability and good support
Best and stay safe
IMO I think that with this computer setup you may have difficulty to handle 4K video files. Perhaps with proxies, low resolution, little effects, no composing , etc... you "could use it" . But if you want the superb Metal2 fcpx power you'll need a Mac with both better graphic card and processor.
I'd recommend you have a look to old Mac Pro 5.1 revamped with RX580 and xeon processors. OWC have a lot of them a very nice prices
