So I have a new machine (17" MBP i7), and FCPX. i downloaded the FCP/QT plugin from red.com and I'm ready to go.
I've gotten FCPX up and running, and got the proxies to play in the timeline, but my main issue at the moment is very poor performance. The _m proxies play fine, but blurry, basically exactly like they did on my previous machine (4 year old MBP) with the playback setting set to "medium". The _h proxies play, but at around 12fps... just like my old machine...
I was super excited for the speed boost all this hardware and software would offer, but right now I'm getting the exact same results that I had with my 2.2ghz core duo and with 2gigs ram, and FCP6.
What am I doing wrong?
