Sharing Menu is Greyed Out
on Jun 19, 2015 at 1:46:54 pm

After a couple of years of cutting on FCP (10.1.3) I ran across a greyed out share menu for the first time. My first assumption was not enough disk space on my boot drive for whatever files need to go there, so I freed up some space giving me 1.7 gigs of headroom there.

There is plenty of drive space (external) where I want the project file compressed to but all the sharing options are greyed out. I tried copying the the project to a new event and called it something different but to no avail.

Stuck here.
Thanks for any suggestions.

I've never seen that, but I would try trashing preferences.

Quit fcpx.

Hold option-command and launch fcpx. Click 'yes' when it asks to delete them.

You will have to reset any options you had created in preferences.

Thanks Jeremy, but trashing the prefs did not do the trick.

Appreciate your help tho.

Two questions:
1. Are the Share options greyed out in the File menu as well as the right-side button?
2. Is it an issue with just this one project, or any project?

Doug,

Using the right side button (great suggestion btw), an error message reads,

"This item cannot be shared while it is still referencing media on the camera"

This must have something to do with some AVCHD clips I brought in. I've assumed they were transcoded and brought into the library okay, but.... every time I load FCP, those AVCHD clips go offline.

Interesting - but it gives me a clue at least.

Thanks

Having difficulty transcoding the AVCHD clips. The process now makes FCP crash every time. Never had this problem before.

Tried to encode the AVCHD files to a different format in Adobe Encoder but Encoder will not accept AVCHD.

I've been using ClipWrap to re-wrap (and sometimes transcode to ProRes) if I'm not ingesting directly...

Do you still have the entire card structure, including the PRIVATE folder?

Wow, that is probably my problem. I just have AVCHD files on my drive. The Private folder is still there but when I open it, there are just AVCHD files. I do not see the other typical files associated with it.

The sample Clip Wrap demo easily transcoded partial files (1 minute's worth). Should be no problem transcoding through Clip Wrap - Thanks!
