    hi everyone. i need to submit a video for my final in two days and have been crying since last night because all of a sudden, FCP is running very slow.

    i can't blame it on hard disk space because i've still got 63 gigs available. i had one 20-megabyte clip with no audio in my timeline and put in a 3-second subtitle. it took fifteen minutes to render. obviously, i can't work like this.

    a few days ago, i was editing another video and everything was running smoothly. i have no idea why this is happening right now. i've tried everything i could think of (i've set the render settings to Best). i'm desperate. please help!

    Make sure your sequence settings are correct (i.e. that you are rendering to the appropriate codec for the format of your project's clips).
