I just got final cut pro x and the video doesn't work! All that shows up is an exclamation point on a red background where video should be. Everything worked in final cut pro 7 so I don't know what the problem is.

Is this original/optimized media or proxy media? Are playback preferences set to optimized/original or proxy?

All the best,

Tom

I've tried both and I don't see a difference.

Then the video is offline. Is it in the event folder?

All the best,

It is showing that the media is offline, How did you get the media into the project? Where is the media located? Has any other programme accessed that media since you imported it? Have you tried re-importing it?

The media is on my desktop and I've dragged and dropped it and also just imported it normally. If I import mp3's or pictures, they show up but any video file has that weird exclamation point.

Can you create a new user on your Mac, open up FCPX as the new user and then try importing the footage again. It's not a solution but it might indicate there is a problem with your install

What video format, frame rate and codec are the clips

I just created a new account, logged into that one and opened the same file but nothing is different.

For what it's worth, that alert means the file was changed by something other than FCP.

I experienced with an older FCPX install.
Caused by meddling with the QT clip in the Event folder in After Effects.
Something got weird with the files and prevented FCPX from reading them.
Fixed with 10.0.2 upgrade.

I'd suggest looking at the clip's info in FCPX and checking that FCPX thinks the clips are where they actually are. I'd also try re-linking the clips from within FCPX. if all else fails, I'd re-encode one of the clips and see if it's just something weird in the original transcoding to ProRes.
