2018 MBP 15 i7 – Running out of System memory during FCPX import.
I am relatively new to editing on a mac, so maybe I’m missing something obvious. I’m importing a 9GB file off of an SD card through a Satechi adapter into FCPX. I am copying and optimizing the file during the initial import. At about 50 percent I am running out of system memory which crashes FCPX and halts my work. I did not have this issue with smaller files, and I’m wondering where I’m going wrong. It also seems that when I import without transcoding, the audio track is not present even though it plays in the quicktime player. For reference the file is a remuxed OBS recording, and I have attempted to delete silent tracks even though there is only one audio track present.
Thanks for any potential help.
