re importing sound clips
on Oct 27, 2014 at 9:16:29 pm

I have some doc footage I shot, and some sound files recorded on a sound devices 633. I was in the midst of cutting the project and had some synced clips : camera files and matching recorded clips from the 633. At some point the 633 files stopped playing leaving me with only the camera scratch track which since it was a mix of 3 microphones is ok but not great because there are sections where I need to turn off some one or two of the mics in the mix.

I then sent the sound clips to the trash figuring something had gone wrong and i would just re import them and re link. Ok except for FCPx now won't let me reimport the clips that i need with the error message saying that the file type is un supported. There are 2 other sound clips in the library that I did not sync up and those seem to be fine and I have the option of re importing those but that's unnecessary.

I tried creating a new event in my project and importing the sound media into the new event, No Dice.

I tried creating a new library just to import the needed sound files and stilts same error message.

I thought something was wrong with my sound files perhaps some corruption so I grabbed a back up set off my LTO tape. Same problem importing the needed files from the back up. So now I am thinking that there is some issue inside FCP's data base that is gumming up the works.

I 'm not sure what else to try at this point and am very open to suggestions. Anyone have a similar experience and how was it resolved?

A bit of an up date- I still haven't solved this problem detailed above that I need to solve. Following my previous post I tried:

Renaming the sound files that won't import thinking that I could fool Final cut into thinking they were different files than I originally imported and that failed.

I opened FCPX on a different machine in a test project I have set up and could import the files in question . I just can't re-import the files into the project where I need them...

When I try to import the files into the project where they are needed, the files show up in the import window list but when I click on a particular wave file, the audio waveform does not appear in the section window.

I'm still stumped.
