FCPX Multicam problems with multiple computer workflow
on Jul 17, 2015 at 5:34:48 pm

Hey,

Have a documentary with tons of multicam clips. Just recently we have had a problem copying projects between computers. We have all of the media externally linked. We create a new library daily as a way of project backup. So each day the master copy is duplicated with todays date and copied over to a mirrored drive which is used to work on a second computer. Every time we do this we have to relink all of the media on the mirrored drive.

The problem we are having is with the duplicated project on the second computer. On the master copy a multicam will be 1 long clip (An hour or so). On the duplicated library the exact same multicam will show up as 5 or 6 smaller clips of random lengths. This becomes a nightmare because we dont know what order theses sections are in, and it makes the project messy.

I have checked all of the settings to make sure they are mirrored. Even if I export an XML of the multicam clip from the master and import it into a new library on the mirrored drive it still shows up as multiple clips even before linking the media!

Anyone had similar problems?

Sorry to ask an obvious question but you aren't sorted by a keyword collection of favorites that would appear to break the multiclip in to parts, are you?

Hey,

No worries. But no, im not.

Sorted by date.

The problem keeps getting weirder as well. The same project on the same drive opens differently on different computers. On my computer it will show up as 1 multicam clip and then on another computer show up as 5.

If you reopen the duplicated library on the original machine, is it OK or are there now 5 clips?

Make sure "all clips" is enabled as opposed to "hide rejected" - "hide rejected" often can gives the illusion of duplicate clips of varying lengths.
