Why do my clips freeze in Split Pop?

Drop Zones in FCPX can be tricky but don’t worry. Just follow these easy tips and you’ll be good to go!

  • Select clips from the Browser, not the Timeline.
  • If you turned your clip into a Compound Clip, you can select from Timeline.
  • Make sure your clip is at least as long as Split Pop title duration.
  • Keep in mind that the Clip selection will start from the playhead. If your clip is 10 seconds long and your title is 5 seconds long and you select your clip after 5 seconds, your video will freeze.
