moved project won't create proxies.
on Feb 12, 2014 at 2:28:23 pm

I have a 5 camera multi cam event that I had transcoded to ProRes, that I then moved onto a portable USB 3.0 drive and took home. I then moved (through FCPX) that event over to my SATA raids (LaCie) on my MacPro and tried to edit. With my Raid being very full, it would not do a good job of playing back the 6 total angles (including line cut). I then asked Final Cut to generate proxies. It gave me the option, (meaning it wasn't greyed out), but then would not generate the proxies. Anybody have any idea what's going on here?

No, It's a 4 disk, 4TB, Raid 5, with 3TB usable, and I just checked it remotely and it has 426 GB empty space remaining.

For a 4T Volume that's less than 25% of the available space is remaining open on the drive. Not many drives work very well when that full and most apps will not create content on a volume that is that full.

Make sure to select the drive in finder and select "get info." There's a checkbox that says "ignore ownership on this volume." Try checking that and see if that helps.
