FCP X Optimizing Media issue
on Jun 4, 2014 at 3:05:51 pm

Just beginning to learn FCP X, a staunch FCP7 user. Have an 11-hour show to edit into 2-Hours. Xferred all the Live show MEDIA from the Ki-Pro External Drive (ProRes422 at 1080) to our new Pegasus T-bolt 2 drive array Overnight, over 500 gigs, FCPX asked if we wanted to optimize media. We clicked yes, but today, we saw numerous clips just "inverted-rotated 180 and many were shrunk by 60%-not filling the screen. Any thoughts. We touched no other areas of FCP10. Earlier yesterday we were just scrubbing/making quick decisions on where to cut when doing the final edit, we were watching the whole video on the timeline-but playing thru the KiPro Drive via USB3 And all the video was fine.
Thanks,
David

ProRes 422 is already optimised. Even if you clicked on optimise when importing, X wouldn't render new clips. I've never seen anything like your problem.

Are you seeing this in Xs viewer or on an external monitor?

Yes, it is "flipped and downsized" on both the external monitor and the FCP Viewer. Doesn't seem to be any pattern to which scenes it flips.We are just in the initial FCP X set up stages, building and making our keyboard shortcuts,watching Ripple training tutorials
Thanks for your input.

Hello Nick! Our other editor, ended up making a New Project and dragging the same video file (that is in the main Pegasus Drive) back on the timeline and all played fine. Maybe we just got a corrupted timeline!
Oh well, I'm sure we'll have many more FCPX questions.
Thanks, David

Or someone messed around with the scale parameters. :) 'cause that's what it sounds like it is.

Seriously, it would be an interesting test to see if they somehow got changed. Weirder things have happened.
