Audio Delay out of Final Cut Pro X with Aja iO ST
by Mark Maness 2 years ago
I'm running a mac pro with 11.0.2 operating system. The last couple of updates have created an annoying problem. Monitoring the output on my broadcast monitor via an Aja IO XT, I have a two to four fr
Mark Maness 4 years ago
Has anyone had this problem? I have a late 2013 mac pro with an AMD FirePro d700 6144mb graphics card. Recently bought a Sony FS7 and love it. Did 4k test shooting Cine EI mode with sony slog3. I imported the footage into premier pro cc 2015, dropped on a LUT and looks great. However, if I do any additional correction via the Lumetri plugin in addition to adding the LUT, it has to be rendered, then I get a "Media Pending" message and it won't play. Again, as long as I only place the LUT, all is okay. Any additional correction, rendering is a must and then a "media pending" screen that never goes away. Same camera, shoot 1080p, no problem. BTW, I'm shooting XVAC-I codec. Anyone else have this problem?

If you're using FCP to create multiple copies of BluRay discs, it's going to take you forever to complete that job. Your best bet would be to use Roxio Toast to copy the discs or a disc duplicator. __
