  • So I'm sitting here at my friend Dara's place. We'd very much like to edit some footage we have. But her Final Cut Pro 5 is being insolent and has decided not to load. Every other program is loading. And it has worked before. Any help would be appreciated.  :)

    have you tried the standard techie things
    1. reboot
    2. Shut down any fireway running on your system.
    3. has anything been changed since the last time you ran the program. IE install anything else

    Any errors?

  • I could bring cool drinks to both of you while wearing only an ass sucking machine, since that's what you said final cut 5 does, and it appears to be malfunctioning.

    Based on the fact that they are trying to load FCP I'll go out on a limb and guess that they are on a Mac.  You don't have to reboot macs.  Unlike PC's they don't freeze up or fail to run programs or ...... oh wait that was the original problem wasn't it?  Never mind.


    Seriously.  I'm not a mac or FCP expert but I know some people who are.  PM me with the details of your system (os vers. etc) and I will see if I can find one of our engineers who might have some ideas for you.

    Didn't see your post til this morning. Glad you got it corrected. It seems like editing is sometimes  80% problem solving crap like that and 20% actual editing. Patience is a virtue, and the results are usually worth ordeal. Have fun with it.  :)
