    Avid Crashing On Mac When Editing 4K



    I have an iMac OS X Yosemite version 10.10.1, 3.4 GHz intel Core I5, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3.


    I am currently shooting with a Sony a6500 in 4K. I have the latest version of avid PLUS the Nablet XAVC S Plug-in that can link and transcode sony 4k footage. everything has been fine so far, except as I start editing things get choppy then avid consistently crashes on me. Please don't tell me I have spent all this time and money on Avid and the camera for nothing. Do I just need a faster computer? Or processor? if that's the case I'm fine with that. I just want Avid to stop crashing while I work on 4K footage.


    BTW it doesn't do it if I'm working on regular HD projects or 4K footage from my drone.


    Please help.

    8GB RAM is the bare minimum you need to run MC.

    For HD I'd suggest 16GB and for 4K 32GB or more.

    An I5 also isn't the best for 4K editing.

    I'd consider doing an HD offline and the conmforming to 4K at the end.
