Problems sharing FCP X project
on Jul 27, 2014 at 3:26:25 pm

Hi,

I'm in a bit of a panic.

I'm using FCP 10.08 on OS X.8.5

I've just finished editing a project and trying to share but both the share options and send to compressor options are greyed out.

I've not had problems before but I recently got a Canon C300 and have been using the Canon software to bring in the footage. I've used it before with no issues but I've noticed that some of the clips are spread across 2cards - could that have something to do with it?

Any thoughts or help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

You need to make sure that the actual project is selected/active. Either by clicking in the timeline or selecting it in the project library. In the old version one could easily change to/activate the Event browser when passing over it on the way to the menu. Drove me nuts.

Your best bet is to simply use the Share Menu at the far right of the toolbar/dashboard. That way you're not passing over anything with your mouse.

... then upgrade to Mavericks/10.1.x. ;)

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I just tried that and getting "This item cannot be shared while it is still referencing media on the camera."

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Ah. Then you didn't let FCP finish the import of the footage from the camera. I'm guessing you have a little camera icon on some or even all of your clips in the event. You need to connect the camera/card and choose "Reimport from camera/archive" first and let the import finish.

command-9 is your friend

"FCP 10.08 on OS X.8.5"

and when you're done sharing ... up-date. A lot has happened for the better.

Lets you know status of b.g. tasks.

Although FC lets you cont. to work when a b.g. task is incomplete, on the computers I've used, it simply pauses the task.
