Hi people, I picked up a rMBP and have been doing some editing with it. It's a sweet rig, but I've been running into some dropped frame issues when editing 1080p. I'm assuming it's my HD workflow. So I've been trying to edit right from the internal, OS drive, which I've always heard is a bad idea. I also tried running the footage off of a thumb drive just out of curiosity. Same issue. I do have an OWC drive that I formerly used for scratch/media but this rig doesn't have FW, so I'm relegated to USB (it's also sort of a mess as I can't seem to see the ex-fat partition and the other one is NTFS, bla bla). So am I going to have to shell out for a thunderbolt HD of some sort? Or use the FW adapter when it's released? I was hoping to get some stuff done this weekend, so let me know if you have any ideas or I'm barking up the wrong tree all together. Some quick info that may provide some shading on my question. I've transcoded, used optimized media, used proxy media, tried encoding them to web optimized with hand brake. Still running into dropped frames while previewing and after rendering it out. If I play the source video in VLC before ingesting it, it's smooth as butter. Thanks for any help you might have for an old buccaneer.
