Thanks Tom, my wife is a journalist so I do like terse, but if my goal is to speed up FCPX and my 9TB project, is that going to help do you think? As I said to Joema, FCPX hangs for 3-4 seconds when I do something as simple as adjusting audio level on a music track and even rendered prores 422HQ has audio dropout on my brand new arse kicking Mac Pro!?! The film is 95% complete, so I just want a timeline I can work with without waiting around while it thinks about how big the library is... hmmm

Would you mind me just asking you what you would do in my situation?

I have a full length feature doc. FCPX is slow as FCUK, just adjusting audio levels causes it to think for 3-4 seconds. It's a new Lacie Big 16TB RAID0 enclosure. Half the footage is proves 422HQ, the rest .h265, which play perfectly, but while playing the probes the audio cuts out randomly, even when the picture is rendered.

My Mac Pro is up to spec, 128GB RAM, 12 Cores, decent gfx card (not the best but the upgraded W7000 or something)

So my thinking was I'll copy the master project over to a new library for tweaking at speed, but now I have this Managed media problem...

Any further tips hugely appreciated!

Thanks v much Joema, that's what I call an answer!

I like the manual, move managed media option, from the Original media folder to a new folder within the External unmanaged med folder and then relinking. The alternative sounds too scary to me and I don't have enough space to duplicate 9TB on the one drive, which is also APFS, so that might also be an unknown factor...

Great advice and much appreciated!!

Best,
Boris

Thanks Tom, so if I create a new folder within the External media folder and tell FCPX to consolidate media into that folder, it won't duplicate any of the external media, just create shortcuts?

I'm not trying to move external media, I'm trying to move managed media to the external media folder ie consolidate all media into that location

Hi, I'm currently finishing a feature documentary. FCPX has become extremely sluggish despite working on a Mac Pro and Raid 0 drive. My combined media is approx. 9TB of which nearly 2TB is managed media. I would like to make the Library fully External but I'm not sure how to go about moving those 2TB of Managed media into the External media folder.

I understand that the consolidate media command can assign an external folder, but FCPX wants to move ALL media into that folder including the already External media.

Any ideas best to do this. The goal is to be able to move projects to other Libraries without the need to copy media, hence the reason why I'm trying to move the Managed media to the External folder.

Sorry, probably a long winded way to describe it...

My gear: Mac Pro, 12 Core, FCPX latest version,Catalina 15.something

Thanks for any tip!

Boris

I've tried that but thanks anyway.

It was working fine with Mojave, so I suspect it's something to do with the eGPU. Don't know...

Am I the only idiot that has upgraded to Catalina?

My set up is:
MacBook Pro 2018, 6 core running Catalina 10.15.1
FCPX 10.4.7
Blackmagic eGPU Pro with BenQ 4k Monitor

FCPX crashes every other time on start up, and every time I quit. I have updated the apps that are 32bit where possible but some are still not 64bit. iZotope is not yet compatible with Catalina so that might cause a problem but who knows... anyone?

Does anyone know why Apple still haven't enabled compatibility with Blackmagic Raw?

FFS Apple, sort it out!

Has anyone experienced this issue?

If I use FCPX for any length of time, export my project, it often has break up lines appearing throughout the film.

The solution has been to restart or shutdown the mac, but I've not experienced this before in 20 years of editing. I thought maybe it's something to do with the gfx cards but nothing is showing up in diagnostics!?!

I'm running a Mac Pro late 2013 6 Cores.

Any ideas?

So here's my solution and it seems to be working, although still a mystery why Prores 4444 isn't exporting nor MXF from the default share options.

I created a custom MXF profile in compressor and then added that in FCPX. That has worked, using the AVC Ultra 100 setting.

I also tried exporting just a single clip with no grade or fx applied and that failed too.

I opened the previous project I worked on a few weeks ago and tried to export one of those edits, but that also failed.

I followed your suggestions, including getting rid of old plugins but had the same message on export.
