Lesson 17. Lesson: Operational Troublesh... > Solving Dropped Frame Problems

Solving Dropped Frame Problems

The dropped frames warning message may be the most misunderstood error message in Final Cut Pro. Understanding the causes and likely solutions can make all the difference in solving the issue quickly.

Dropped frames occur when, during either capture or playback, FCP and your Macintosh can’t process and deliver the number or size of frames of video per second required by the video standard you are using. FCP expects to display or write a new frame of video at certain time intervals. If the frame does not arrive on time because it was delayed elsewhere within your system, FCP will drop (skip) that frame. Capture or playback either continues with the frame missing or stops with a warning message, depending on your preference settings.
