Hi,

So i have a mac mine mid 2011 with 8gb ram core i5.
i've been working on some small projects on final cut pro x for a while now, and it's always run fine, about 2 days ago it started hanging up on me constantly (beach ball effect), i've tried re installing deleting the preferences files, read around but only find general final cut pro x is slow help threads... with are not very useful since it was working fine for me and suddenly it broke.

since i wanted to get the projects done i got premiere installed and it does the same thing.

does anyone have any idea what this is ? I'm grasping at straws here...

thank you for any help.

the ram usage seems normal, it sometimes hangs right at the beginning.. this is a pretty frustrating situation... hate it when thing's work then stop for no reason.

i have installed no new programs in the time it took for it to stop working i can't think of anything I've did who could have caused final cut to stop working.. :(

Right could it be a problem with the external disk were i have my events ? it seems to be sluggish on everything i do.

I did a clean install and am removing everything from that disk slowy.. its taking forever. and ill try final cut after that. lets see how it goes
