My sources keep glitching and causing problems...

Something keeps happening with my Sources in my CFX tree, and periodically they'll show up like this...



Is this indicative of anything particular? Any ideas for things to look into, or for ways to get it to refresh itself?

The only way I've been able to get it sort itself out is by restarting the whole Program, but it keeps happening within a few minutes into working on the shot, so obviously this is a hugely time consuming workaround.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I've also noticed that my brushes in the Paint Node keep going offline, so my paint operations keep getting messed up. Weird.

In my case this happened a couple of times when some of my files corrupted themselves after a crash. I deleted the recovered media library and flushed all my renders and that solved it for me.

I panicked when I saw this - "you got to be kidding me not the graphics card dying!". But no it seems to me like smoke is recalling a bad frame from its render cache (or whatever it is called).

I was working on arriscan DPX at the time.

Hope this helps!

Hi there,
I had a lot of problems today when rendering my CFX clips in the timeline.
Randomly white blocks appeared in my clips in different positions.
Smetimes white blocks in the whole clip.
I figured out it must be the cache render, so I fluxed my renders and cache my CFX clips again.
It solved the issue.
For now.

Best,

Fabiano
