Adam Connell, a long-time reader of my monthly Final Cut Studio newsletter, sent me the following:
I recently downloaded and tried out 10.6.2 on my ‘experiments’ mac, a 17″ MBP 2009 edition. On exactly the same HDV and XDCAM sequences that worked perfectlyu well on 10.6.1 in FCP 7, droped frames galore on regular sequence playback, crashing when tying to crop video etc… glad it was in a controlled enviroment and it didn’t go anywhere near my main cutting machine, the mac pro. – That would have had me u all night. Curiously, the software description for 10.6.2 says that it is meant to improve FCP. HOW? 🙂
Larry adds: I have not tested this, so I don’t know the extent of the problem. However, I wanted to give you a heads up so you can determine for yourself what you want to do.
