How To Fix FCP7 Out of Memory Error

Solving Out of Memory Error in FCP7

The out of memory error in final cut pro 7 certainly is mysterious and very frustrating. I had this error today while working on a project with a lot of large jpg images in it, which always seems to make FCP7 go a bit weird, but thankfully Larry Jordan is to the rescue once again with a great short tip on solving this problem.

Extra Tip: If anything ever goes a bit wonky in FCP, its a good idea to try trashing the preferences (see this simple article from Larry Jordan) and also ‘Saving a project as…’ – which can help rebuild the internal workings of a project. In both cases this didn’t help me as what I needed to do was resize some overly large jpg images to a more FCP friendly scale. It’s always the last thing you try.
