Can't make directory, fails to build previews/proxies

Hi everyone,

I am having the same problem with different clips. I can't see a common setting between them, it just says that fails.

Thank you for your help

Most likely, without any more info, it's the permissions on your proxy folder/volume.

Check that under media search paths and make sure you have read/write to that directory.

"Check that under media search paths and make sure you have read/write to that directory."

How can I check those permissions? I see everything normal in media search path... what kind of information would you need?

Thank you :)

Permissions are controlled by your OS. CatDV merely points and shows the path.

What tends to happen is that people define a drive that they only have read only permissions to and then of course CatDV can't write to it.

You can google permissions checking for whichever OS you are on. On a Mac you can "get info" on the folder or drive to check that you have read/write.
