  1. So AWESOME! I’ve been searching for a solution for days. However, I had this problem in Catalina but, interestingly, not in Mojave. It’s now fixed in Catalina. Thank you so much!!

  2. Nice article, thank you. I was hopeful I’d see an improvement in performance with my 2013 Mac Pro but nothing noticeable however the bottle neck might be my hard drives…

  3. Wow.! Really glad you posted that fix. I just spent hours redownloading fcp several times. Nothing seemed to help. I also don’t think I ever played with that setting. Thanks so much. I hope this fix is available elsewhere. I have not seen it myself.

  4. what a great fix. It was already difficult to phrase the problem to Google and as you said, not many people have this issue, so there aren’t many threads with the solution. Thanks for this explanation!

  5. Thank you. This fix also worked with catalina + FCPX 10.4.7 (almost perfectly). It fixed all the major menu-flickering and that really made my day. BUT, I still experience flickering with these purple triangular shapes appearing inside the FCP-window while using FCP. For instance when I scroll my video back and forth in the video bar. I rund a MBP retina mid 2012 so catalina is the last OS update for this old mac. I lost a lot of my old programs like office so I had to buy that one again, and the catalina update only warned me of acrobat and office conflicts. Still about 15 otter progs got the “no parking sign” on them after catalina update. I downloaded latest apple video drivers or whatever.

    So now I guess I can use FCP X 10.4.7.
    But will I have to live with the annoying flicker while editing video?

    I´d hate to downgrade to mojave or pervious FCPX version now. I was using FCPX 10.4 (I guess that would equal 10.4.0) and latest Mojave before updating to catalina and FCPX 10.4.7 and things were working with no flickering at all, but I really wanted the new caption/ subtitle features of FCPX 10.4.7.

    You wouldn’t happen to know of any other quick fix for the smaller but still annoying FCPX flicker?


Don't just sit there... say something. :-)
