we shoot footage with the latest B16. Now I am trying to make a pre-selection on FCP on a Macbook (CD 2Ghz, 2GB RAM). The latest QT plugin seem to crash FCP. I can replicate it ALWAYS, when there is no footage in the timeline, e.g. like a temporal gap in the edit. As soon as I put the playhead on it, it crashes. It also crashes at other occasions, that I cannot replicate for 100%. The system crashes about every 3 minutes that way, even when I try to work around the no-footage-in-timeline-issue.
I tried also on a new-installed macmini (C2D, 1,8Ghz, 1GB RAM), but it was the same problem. I also deleted and reinstalled the QT redcode component.
All comps ran 10.5.4, QT 7.5 and FCP 6.04.
I used to make the preselection on this very same computer on Build15 and i never had a crash. Now I wonder, if I need to buy a new computer, or if I have setup something wrong.
In FCP, I use only the 512x256 size for the editing preselection. Media are mixed 4K and 2K. REDCODE in sequence, 100% quality.
Playback control in system settings: RT unlimited, video quality low, hq scrubbing off.
What am I missing, or is it the integrated Intel GFC of the computers, that is messing it up?
