SplitScreen X not working 10.0.6 and higher

My SplitScreen X edit keeps pausing

Sorry for the trouble with SplitScreen X! Sometimes our tutorials can be super useful for this: http://www.crumplepop.com/final-cut-pro-tutorials/

Just incase you want to see written out steps I have included some below.

Note – If you have tried multiple failed dropzone placements you must clear your project render files before trying this workflow. To clear your render files go to the project in the event browser, highlight your project and go to file>Delete Project Generated Files>Delete Render Files and then select “all files”

– Add the SplitScreen X generator you wish to use to the timeline.

– Move the playhead to the location you will want your clip to start on the timeline, usually this is the first frame of the SplitScreen X Generator.

– Once your playhead is set, click the image well for the Drop zone you wish to place your clip in.

– Then in the event browser move the cursor to the “in point” of the clip you want to place in SplitScreen X and click. After you have selected the frame you wish to be your inpoint, hit the “Apply clip” at the bottom of the viewer.

Adding Content to SplitScreen X from the Timeline.

– Add the SplitScreen X generator you wish to use to the timeline.

– Select the clips you wish to place into SplitScreen X and place them on the timeline below the SplitScreen X generator.

– Arrange clips so they start and end at desired time in relation to SplitScreen Generator on the timeline.

– Highlight the first clip you wish to add into SplitScreen X and then right click and select “create compound clip.” repeat this with the other clips that will be placed in SplitScreen X.

– Move the playhead to the first frame of the SplitScreen X Generator.

– Once your playhead is set, click the image well inside SplitScreen X for the drop zone you wish to place your clip in.

– Then move the cursor to the first frame of the Compound Clip on the timeline and click “Apply Clip.” Repeat this process for all of the drop zones and clips.

– Once the Compound Clips are all placed into SplitScreen X you can disable them by highlighting and pressing the “v” key.

Drop Zones in 10.0.6 Known Issues:

– If you try to add a clip from the timeline before making it a Compound Clip it will not work properly in your SplitScreen X generator.

– If a Clip or Compound Clip you are using with SplitScreen X does not have its first frame present on the timeline (Meaning that when you grab the left edge of the clip you are able to drag it left and have more media appear on the timeline) the clip will not work properly with SplitScreen X.

– If you have tried multiple failed dropzone placements you must clear your project render files in order for dropzones to work properly. To clear your render files go to the project browser, highlight your project and go to file>clear project render files and select “all files.

Thank you for your patience with this, we are hopeful Apple will address these issues in the next release. In the meantime, feel free to write with any further questions.
