Hello,

Whenever I send a sequence over to Color, all the media seems to be offline. I can see the shots tho.
I even tried it with a sequence with only a single clip and without any filters, but no results.

Here are some pics of my sequence settings, clip settings and what happens in color:

I realy don't know what the problem could be.

Thx in advance

Hi Matteo,
By looking at your second still grab it looks like your file is actually an Mp4, NOT ProRes. Just because your time line is ProRes does not mean your clips don't need to be ProRes.
This is a no no. Color can't work with mp4...Try this, Media manage your timeline and tell it to encode everything to ProRes during the process. (Don't forget to add handles for slip options later if you like) Open your new media managed project and then send that "real" ProRes time line to color. This should solve your problem.

ALWAYS trans-code your mp4 media to ProRes BEFORE you start editing. This is standard practice and will save you tons of headaches in the future.

Good Luck!

Your sequence settings are out of whack too. For example, SD should be 720x480 (or 486) and un-square pixels. ProRes seems to have problems w/non-standard resolutions and I really, really doubt Color likes getting a non-standard sequence like that either.

I converted the MPEG-4 to ProRes in Compressor and now it works like a charm.

Thx alot for your help :)
