Missing audio handles and waveforms
on Oct 9, 2014 at 2:36:00 pm

I am missing the fade handles and waveforms from my dialogue clips, and I have tried everything I know to get them to appear.
My music tracks are fine, waveform and handles visible.

I've got 'show waveforms' on as well as the correct clip appearance settings.
I've tried restarting and trashing FCPX preferences, duplicating the project, and re-importing the dialogue files.
The files are .wav format.

Anybody have an idea how to make the handles and waveforms appear for problem clips?

When you play the dialogue clips, do you actually hear the audio?

Yes, this is curious. I assume your dialogue files are audio only clips.

Do the waveforms show up in the event browser?
Does the audio level line show up over the clips with no waveforms?
If you expand the audio components (control option S) do you see waveforms?
If you look at the audio in the inspector, are there waveforms there??

Just curious... are the formats for the music files different form the dialogue files? FCPX should be able to handle the audio whether it's 44.1khz or 48, but I wonder if there's a difference.

I'd try trashing the audio waveform data and having FCPX redo them.

Close FCPX.
Select your library file in the finder and select "Show Package Contents".
Look for the folder with your event name, then the folder for render files, then "Peaks Data".
Delete the Peaks Data folder, and empty your trash. (don't delete
This should force FCPX to recreate your waveforms.

Don't live your life in a secondary storyline.
