Blase TheodoreRED bug: randomly bad clips
by on Apr 28, 2009 at 3:12:57 am

I'm doing another RED project (a lot of them these days?) and ran into a problem where certain clips aren't connecting on the Color timeline. The clips appear as online, but when you scrub or play over them, you're just seeing frames from the image buffer recycled. About 30% of my properly prepped timeline is bad.

If I select just one of the clips in FCP, create a master clip of it, put it into a new timeline and send it to color (or export as XML), it still is bad. If I mess with in/outs of clip, still bad. If I take the timeline, MM offline it in FCP, then re-online it and try to re-send, still bad.

The bad clips themselves seem to be ok. FCP plays them fine, and I can import their source R3d directly into Color just fine. The directory structure of bad clips is identical to good clips.

Anyone seen this?

When I don't understand something in Color, I have faith that everything in life happens for a reason. Then I trash preferences.

Are these spanned clips (i.e. larger than 2GB) ? Are you editing proxies instead of using L&T?

If both answers are "yes", get Colorfixer from Hans-Georg Daun (free) !

Hope this helps,

Wow, thank you Uli. Colorfixer was the solution.

My pleasure!

One of my students ran into the same problem recently…

I'm in reconnect hell.

Log & Transfer doesn't reconnect because I suspect the Assist was doing the ProRes renders in one of the RED applications rather than Log&Transfer. So that old dog will officially not hunt.

Clipfinder doesn't replace the mov with the r3D... I think because there is a naming violation where some extra text has been added in the original N###C###xyzetc file/path name....

Reconnecting manually does actually work.. but looking like 5000 or so mouse clicks unless somebody here has a better idea....'

Whast about correcting the path name and changing it in the XMLs with search and replace?

I successfully imported the XML into Clipfinder and was able to populate the media list... but "replace" mov with the R3D doesn't seem to do anything.... the r3d's don't match perfectly, perhaps because they aren't the RED P,M,H or F proxies?

[Joseph Owens] "I successfully imported the XML into Clipfinder and was able to populate the media list... but "replace" mov with the R3D doesn't seem to do anything.... the r3d's don't match perfectly, perhaps because they aren't the RED P,M,H or F proxies?"

Had similar issue today...FCP just completely lost contact with the Red proxies when trying to reconnect. And my grades in Color are not sticking to certain clips. I set up a grade, scroll down to another clip, come back and the grade has disappeared. Separated the offending clips into a brand new Color project and they work there, but it gets real tricky keeping track of all these little projects with problem clips, and impossible to grade them in the context of the spot, when I have to render and send back to FCP before viewing.
