dropped_frames_warning.pngIf you're receiving a "Dropped Frames During Playback" message in Final Cut Pro, it could be due to the fact that your hard disk is too slow or that your video footage is using a codec that is just too much for your computer processor to handle.  For editing purposes, you can turn off the display of this message that appears when dropped frames occur.  Simply go to the Final Cut Pro User Preferences menu, and in the General Tab, deselect the "Report Dropped Frames During Playback" checkbox.  This should help improve Real-Time performance.

dropped_frames.pngDropped frames are frames that are inadvertently skipped during playback or output, either because the hard disk cannot keep up with the video data rate or because the computer processor cannot perform all of the applied effects in real-time.  You can also improve real-time performance by playing your sequence using the Unlimited RT mode instead of the Safe RT mode.
