Color grade not exporting from Mutlicam

Hi everyone. Just cut a mutlicam in FCPX.. The problem I'm having is that when I export the final edit the grade is not there. The scenario is this. I've got 3 cameras. Synced them up. Graded them to match etc.. Then applied the grades to the Multicam clips, rather than to the edit. That way I didn't need to grade each individual edit. Just plonk the correct one on each camera and it's done... Or so I thought. It all looks A. OK when I play the project. Only when I export, does it export the non graded version of the footage. So weird. It's rendered everything, as after I did this it wanted to render my whole project. I'm bashing my head on this one. Have you got any ideas on what I've done wrong here?

So instead of adding the grades here and having to put them on every angle.



I've put the grades on here..



But when I export it, no grade!! It's like FCPX ignores the mutlicam grade when it exports, even it plays the grade A. OK in the timeline (and on my broadcast monitor).

Try deleting your render files and exporting again without rendering in advance.

FCPX 10.1.2 has a NASTY Pasting Attributes Bug, and it's easy to replicate. If you haven't heard about it, seen it and or reported it to Apple please be aware of it and report it, it could really bite you without you realizing it.

Although it's not limited to copying and pasting attributes in multicam edits via the angle editor, that's where I first replicated the bug, while making color changes to a clip in the angle editor. If I copy the color attribute and past it to other selected clips in the same angle, it appears that the clips have accepted the CC attributes when playing it from the angle editor or even when viewing the multicam in a new project timeline. But unless you first tweak the attribute settings in the clips you pasted them to, they don't come across in the export. In an attempt to troubleshoot it, I've tried it first without rendering the project before export and again with rendering the project before export and it doesn't make any difference.

Here is the proven workaround. After you select the clips and paste your CC attributes, but before you unselect the clips, toggle off and on the color effects switch. This will insure the corrections will flow through during the export/share process.

Also, be aware that this in not just a color attribute bug, it will occur after pasting any effects attributes so you will need to toggle off and on the subject effect in the same fashion.

Super. It worked. Just tried it. Have you reported the bug as it's a pretty major one? I'd tried pasting the grades to the individual clips and it was still exporting wrong. Was pulling my hair out over this..

Thanks.

Jason.
