I’ve got a brand new 12-core Apple MacPro with 16 GB RAM and an ATI Radeon HD 5870 Graphics Card!

While rendering a project in Apple Final Cut Pro (FCP) I’ve got an error message…

“General Error!” and then “Out of Memory!” ***WTF???***

Equipped with a brand new machine, I thought there must be another problem and did some research, but found nothing really helpful.

In fact the the solution is really simple!

I had the following sequence setting, when I first tried to render and the following error message came up:

Wrong setting:

Apple Final Cut Pro - General Error - Out of Memory - *SOLVED*!


SOLUTION:

I’ve changed the setting a little bit:

H.264 to “Apple ProRes 422″ – and that’s it!!!

Right setting:

Apple Final Cut Pro - General Error - Out of Memory - *SOLVED*!


THAT’S ALL!

If you want to know which ProRes codec is the best for your project, please have a look at http://www.apple.com/finalcutstudio

And if you don’t know how to change the video settings of a sequence: Right click on it and choose “Settings”! That’s easy… ;-)
