FCPX Projects and Events disappear as fcpx opens
on Nov 21, 2013 at 7:54:28 am

Hi
I am working on a project in FCPX with footage from several cameras.
Firstly I noticed that footage is not always imported when I tell FCPX to import it if I use the SD slot on the back of my iMac instead of importing from the camera.
Before this problem I trashed a cf card from a card reader and that caused fcpx to hang.
Now, when I open fcpx (I use event manager x to select projects/events), I can see me selected projects as the pinwheel turns, then they all disappear as FCPX loads. The pinwheel disappears and then the events also disappear.
Please help!

Thank you

Sounds like you might have a camera folder on the root of the hard drive that your FCPX Projects and events are on.

If you have a camera folder located on the root of any hard drive, FCPX sees that drive as a camera and not a hard drive.

Hi and thanks

I've read about some issues around this but it's not really clear to me. Though my project and event are definitely on an external hard drive rather than on a camera card.
Other projects are loading ok.
I had not shut down the computer until this problem occurred and now it all disappears as the project and events load.
The dialogue box says 'updating project xxx' then it all disappears and gives the option to create a new project/event.
Really don't want to start this from scratch.
Thanks again.

[Dan Rayner] "Other projects are loading ok. "

Do you mean other projects on the same hard drive?

Not sure about that. Will do a test ASAP.

Thanks

Did you copy any folders from the SD cards to the root of the hard drive you are having problems with?

WOW! I didn't copy an entire SD to the external drive but I backed up my avchd footage by dragging it to the external drive.
I have now trashed the avchd backup file and everything has loaded! BIG relief.
Many thanks for your help. Very much appreciated.

It's one of the most common issues that comes up, you just need to make sure that all camera rushes folders are not on the root of the drive.

Thank you so much for this insight. I was just about to post asking for help with missing events (disappearing when FCPx loads) and found this thread.

I had put an AVCHD file from my camera on the root of my external drive and inadvertently caused this issue. Once I moved it, all my events reappeared and media linked up in my projects.

Yes, such a relief!

Thanks again,

Tom
