I using FCP X to edit product promos, I followed some advice to store the events and finished projects on an external drive. I have a LaCie 2big 6Tb drive so I could easily accommodate the raw footage. Launching FCP X, and then accessing the data to the drive, I get the spinning ball and its very jittery and freezing a lot.
I have 16 Gb of RAM so there plenty of processing speed, can anyone shed some light on this for me, as its totally unworkable right now?
QUOTE Thanks

I think I solved the issue, on the download pop up, the transfer of files asks if you want the clips to be optimised, that seems to have done the trick.
