Make sure you have at least 20% free disk space on all drives.
Disable background rendering in FCPX preferences, then delete all render files via File>Delete Generated Library Files>Delete Render Files>All.
Then select all clips in the timeline with CMD+A and do a one-time render with CTRL+R. Observe whether it finishes OK and is playable. If so, then export this way:
File>Share>Master File>Settings, Format: Computer, Video Codec: H.264 Faster Encode, Resolution: 1920x1080.
If that fails, state the error or behavior.

Try these settings: Share>File>Master File>Settings, Format: Computer, Video Codec: H.264 Faster Encode, Resolution: 1280 x 720p, then use AirDrop to send to iPhone. It should immediately appear in your Photo library under "Recents".
You could also use the "Apple Devices" preset but the encoding is very similar.
This is using FCPX 10.4.8 and iOS 13.5.1 on an iPhone 11 Pro. However it should play even on older iPhones.

Though I feel that the installation of my Izotope plugins was way too weird and suspect them even more...
Just to be clear, I have not even opened a library, so haven't actually used any of the plugins. But I think it was clear. I guess that plugins can crash or hang FCPX even if not in use...But I do need those to work with Logic Pro....Is there a way to deactivate them only for FCPX?...Or at least a way to do so when working with FCPX and reactivate them when opening Logic?... yestarday...it did crash twice, hanged quite consistently but also done soemthing that never happened before:...At opening, FCPX just froze before being able to do anything but without the beach ball, not allowing to touch anything without the "Funk" sound...I'm also having smaller hangs on other moments, such as opening Firefox and troubles connecting with my VPN... Not sure it's related though.

New last Catalina 10.15.5.
No 3rd party kernels, no server performance mode, no chrome or any derivates...
I did install a bunch of AU though, including, but not only, Izotope ones that did give me a little headache on install and had to reboot to have them working.
(I even had two of the installers staying forever on the dock, and actually had to press long the ON button to be able to restart the machine and get rid of them)
Could AU give problems to FCPX? BTW, those specific Izotope plugins weren't installed in my previous OS.
...FCPX crashed twice already, takes long to open and hangs way too often...
Logic seems to operate fine. Finder does hang a little sometimes.
Everything else seems fine so far...
I have uninstall FCPX with FCS Remover, reinstalled it... Same.
Here is the only crash report I've managed to get:
I think I'm gonna need to give up on video editing for a while, it's been over two weeks trying ONLY to solve this and my creative mojo has gone long time ago. I might get a newer computer later this year or the next one and try to start over again and hopefully I'll be luckier then.
I might tomorrow try to run it from a different user see if anything changes there.
Could it be one of the FXFactory plugins instead?

OK, I scoured the internet and finally found some FS7 test material I could download. It appears that 4k XAVC-I is relatively fast on my 10-core Vega 64 iMac Pro, but 4k XAVC-L is quite sluggish. This is regardless of whether they are imported using copy to library or "leave files in place".
Franke wrote: but this happens to me basically with every FS7 footage I ever got (i guess mostly with that same resolution and codec). I just feel its not that smooth for being on so modern machine and working off an SSD.
The info you posted says 1080p, but your first post said 4k. Which is it?
Also we still cannot tell the needed codec details. I suggest you use Invisor, which allows side-by-side comparison of various media files in a grid. After installing it, in Finder you do right-click on the file>service>Analyze with Invisor, At the top select the Comparison button. You can then click/drag other files in Finder to that window and view the characteristics: apps.apple.com/us/app/invisor-media-file...or/id442947586?mt=12
This will not only be useful for this case but in the future when people send you material you can examine it.
We need to know (1) the actual media file details, including whether it's XAVC-I, XAVC-L or what. (2) The resolution you are actually using, whether 4k or 1080p.
Using Invisor will tell us that. Or if that's too difficult, upload a small test clip to DropBox and post that here. We can analyze it and report back.

- If I start a new project, why is FCPX keep hanging and being slow (beachball) if I don’t really have many plugins?
- Is FCPX super slow only by having a lot of plugins installed even if not using them?
- The whole idea of retaking this big library was to try and work with Proxy files to see if I could avoid all these slownesses… Way are there clip I can’t transcode to Proxy? Some only allow me to transcode to optimised...
