I'm wondering if anyone in the LA area knows of a great Mac/Final Cut Pro guy...I am sadly not that guy. I have an issue with FCPX and I am not sure if it is a software/hardware issue, or has to do with two Disney movies I needed to use 3rd party software to rip. FCPX has worked great for me until now, but since adding the two films, I get the spinning rainbow ball of death instead of a curser whenever I open the program, and the only way to get rid of it is to quit the program or shut down the computer

I am terribly illiterate with anything computer based, so the ideal situation would be to find someone I could pay to take my computer and figure out what is going on before I throw it in the garbage. Thank you in advance for any possible help.

Hi Brooks,

I've been working with mac and FCP since its first edition.

I think I can help.

Most likely is the codec of the ripped files is not compatible.

Email me how did you rip the dvd in details.
