  1. Hi, I finally jumped into upgrading my iMac (not an easy decision but I had to do it for various important reasons) and now need to render a whole bunch of stuff on my timeline in FCP7, that didn’t need any rendering before the upgrade to the new OS. I have a clean , all ProRes, same frame rate, etc., footage, not too many effects either. But even simple audio dissolves need rendering in a few places now. All of my titles (not 3D, simple outlined text) are orange too, before they weren’t even green. Have looked at seq settings, render settings, the number of real time audio mixing tracks, etc, nothing helps. Do I need additional plugins? Any ideas on how this could be fixed? Would appreciate any thoughts, thanks.

    • Hi… that’s odd, 7 has been pretty much the same for me on 10.11 as before, and we have 4 more systems running on the same OS as well… all seem OK. Have you updated the “pro” codecs? you can grab ’em here if not… https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1396?locale=en_US …just a shot in the dark… Also, if you have an NVIDIA GPU, make sure the drivers are updated.. There should be a control panel at the bottom of the system prefs window to do that if it applies. Seems like you’ve hit all the usual places… Also check the playback settings menu on the left side of the timeline. (RT, Full etc…) sometimes those settings get tweaked and it does what you’re describing.

      • Thanks for the suggestions. I will download the pro codecs, although I think I’ve been updating those regularly. I don’t think it is any of those other things. Thanks again.

      • None of those helped unfortunately. Every time I edit something on FC7, I say to myself this is the absolute last time! I’ve been saying that since 2001 actually. Still can’t seem to get rid of it, no matter how hard I try! Every other project, it comes back to haunt me!

      • lol… I know the feeling… Sorry that stuff was no help. It is odd, like I said, the systems I’m working with all seem OK… Maybe try reinstalling 7? Hope it clears up…

  2. hello,
