    So I installed the update to 10.4.1 and now my system runs out of memory and the program is unusable. OSX is telling me to close applications via a popup. I tried to uninstall and re-install the software and it didn't help. I have the latest version of OSX on a 2016 MacBook Pro 15" (fully loaded). I'm very upset since I can't do my work and it's affecting my job. Before the update, I could have photoshop open, safari, and outlook and still run final cut without and problems. It was super fast.... now, I can barely load a movie before it crashes. My memory pressure is orange and red after the update, before it was always green. I hope someone can help, or if you have the same system as me what's your experience? Thank You.

    Restore from your backup taken just before you upgraded.

    Not an option. I didn't back-up before installing it.

    Is it an issue with your computer exclusively? Or Final Cut as a program, maybe a flaw in the update. Have you found anyone else having this problem? Try Googling it if you can.

    I think it's a flaw with the update. I'm going try it on another computer and see how it goes.

    That's my guess. Check Google and see if it's a known problem.

    Curious, are you working with 4K footage? How long are your videos? This might seem like a lot to ask but can you can you check your memory pressure while editing? And mess with the video a lot. I seem to have the issues 10 minutes into editing.

    am not on a project right now, and working elsewhere. but i opened a 5-minute music video this morning and basically destroyed it :cool:. i had no issues, but, no time to do more tests. try checking a FCP forum? this is where i go for help: http://www.fcp.co/forum/4-final-cut-pro-x-fcpx

    OP:
    If nothing else works, you could try to DELETE the most recent update of FCP, and then re-install a slightly older version that was known to be working.

    This probably involves deleting all existing libraries, etc.
    I suggest you use CarbonCopyCloner to create a cloned backup of your internal drive AS IT IS NOW, so that you don't lose any existing files/footage.
    CCC is FREE to download and use for 30 days. It will do the job.

    After you downgrade, you probably won't be able to load "previously upgraded" libraries, but you MIGHT be able to re-import raw footage.

    "Thems the breaks" when you don't do a cloned backup (again using CCC or SuperDuper) prior to upgrading.

    I'm running FCP 10.4.1 on a late 2013 rMBP without any problems with older projects either. Also not on any new ones yet. As well as always keeping a cloned hard drive, before doing an incremental update, it's a good idea to archive your current version (secondary click, choose compress) so if there are problems you can trash the program, then uncompress the archive and be back were you started.
