Although I have Chrome installed I don't use it except in very rare situations. I use Brave browser instead.

I see, thanks. Mine says "None Found". I guess I am ok then. See if anyone else responds.

Sorry for being a bit dim, but I don't understand your response. Where is A/V Output??? What program and what setting does this show up in?

I also have iMac Pro and FCPX and have Chrome, but no such issues. Where did you see the Chrome webcam entry? I can't find that either in System Preferences or FCP Preferences.

I am normally vey security conscious and have BitDefender, Cookie 5 and Little Snitch, as well as CleanMy Mac X, protecting my system.

So where can the Chrome webcam be found?

Paul Szilard created a new topic ' MacPro G5 (Power PC) - what is it good for?' in the forum. 4 months ago

I was given a Mac Pro G5 (pre Intel) power pc model. It is in perfect condition, dual core/cpu, with 6.5GB ram and 250GB HDD and has been sanitised of data, but has full licenses for Final Cut 5, and a bunch of other stuff. All seems to be working.

My question is "Does the G5, have any use in today's world, and does it have any commercial value"? Should I keep it (Why?) or try to sell it on eBay (for how much?)

It has licensed Adobe CS2 apps, Microsoft Office, and more. Has dual DVI video card and wired keyboard.

Paul Szilard replied to the topic 'FCPX Hangs all the time!' in the forum. 4 months ago

Thanks for your recommendations.

Normally I use Brave browser, which is built on Chrome - so I'll close that before starting FCPX.

Libraries can only run from local drives or SAN, and my Synology is configured as NAS only - so I don't ever run (can't) a Library from there. I do however store Libraries on the Promise box, which is a SAN, but never had problems before.

I will have to do more debugging. ATM I am pre-occupied with setting up clients to work from home, as I am an IT Support person.

Thanks for the hardware tips. My drives checked out ok, however.

Removing FCPX is a bit too drastic for me. I have probably close to a 100 plugins installed, so thanks, but no thanks. :P

Would have been helpful to mention NOT to get this from the App Store, but from the developer's http://www.etrecheck.comwebsite !

Anyway, I have now converted to the non-App Store Pro version and running the analysis.

Hadn't heard of etreCheck before, so thanks for the suggestion. Downloaded it and bought the Pro Pack.Looking through the report - looks ok.

Thanks for replying. I got 64GB when I ordered my iMac Pro to future proof it, as I am not planning on upgrading hardware for at least 5 years, maybe 10!

I have 1TB internal SSD, with 560GB free.

I looked at Activity Monitor, and and when FCPX freezes (beach ball), it has plenty of resources, and it just stops from running. The cpu for FCPX does not change, neither does the ram usage.

I did a Force Quit and deleted all render files, cache and lock files. This meant I was at least able to start FCPX. I tried opening some Libraries and some open and some freeze as soon as I try to make any changes. I am going through them slowly, and using Final Cut Library Manager to delete all rendered files.

FCPX 10.4.8 running on iMac Pro Mpjave 10.14.6. Ram: 64GB

My FCPX keeps hanging with beachball, virtually on any Library and any project and the only way out is to Force Quit. This happens if I try to move anything within FCPX, like to a new Event, or open a Project.

It's just crazy! I can't do anything.

Any suggestions? Please!

Whatever I tried to edit my profile or signature, I get stuck in www.fcp.co/friends/pending-my-approval even though I have nothing to "approve". Is this a user error (i.e. me), or something wrong with the forum s/w?

Paul Szilard replied to the topic 'Waves Central has broken my FCPX' in the forum. 5 months ago

And my post in response to Waves admitting that they are "aware" of the problem and "working very hard to fix it":

Not acceptable! You should IMMEDIATELY withdraw Waves Central v11.0.55 and roll back to a working previous version, until you have this fixed. At the VERY LEAST, you should add a message to v11 to say “Please disconnect USB Drives before staring this App!”.

We, the users, can understand that programming problems can arise, but cannot understand why Waves does remedy the situation as I have outlined. Waves is succeeding in driving user confidence into the basement!

My note to the WAVES Forum:

I think having to pay to just use what I have ALREADY paid for is tantamount to ransomware! I am aware that the developer has costs in making their apps convert to 64 bit and Catalina compatible, but this should be part of their overhead/operating cost, and not an excuse to gauge their user base just to pay for using what they have already bought!!! I would have thought that V11 should be free and that would buy user respect and commitment and further purchases, instead of driving users away!

In contrast, I have a significant dollar investment in Fujifilm X system, but Fuji provides FREE of charge the firmware updates, which have included even new functionality, not just fixes. As a result, I have now 3 camera bodies and 21 lenses! I don't think I will be buying any further Waves plugins at this rate, as I find their lack of supporting the user base unacceptable.

FURTHERMORE, if Waves is aware that the current Waves Central v11.0.55 does NOT work if the user has USB drives plugged in, then they should IMMEDIATELY withdraw that version until they have fixed the problem, instead of leaving the users in the pooh without a notice. If I was CEO of Waves, I would sack my development manager on the spot!!! The current lack of support is verging on the criminal.
