    Default Titles drop frame error message during playback

    I added titles to my sequence and now when I playback I get an error message that frames were dropped. There are green render bars over the text. How can I adjust my sequence or titles so that I can playback a sequence without stopping.

    Thanks,

    What format are you working in? What are you using for media storage? Which version of FCP? What type of Mac are you using? How much RAM does it have?

    All that aside, have you tried rendering the titles?

    HDV 1080p30, external WD Drive, FCP 7, Mac DualCore Intel Xeon, 6 gigs of RAM.
    I can't seem to render the green render bars. Right now I've deselected "warn of drop frames" option.

    Ahh! You have to change the render settings. In the Menu, under Sequence>Render select the green color of the titles' render bar so there is a checkmark next to it in the list. I have Render and Render All set differently so I can work more quickly. Render only processes what it absolutely needs to play. Render all has everything checked.

    Another question would be, what's the external WD drive? If it's not FW800 or eSATA there's another issue.
