Unrendered Motion files when duplicating Seq in FCP6
on Jul 25, 2007 at 2:12:24 am

Hi Guys,

I just upgraded to FCP6 and I noticed that Motion files rendered in FCP6 becomes unrendered when I duplicate the sequence (this didn't happen in FCP5). Any thoughts... settings? Thanks in advance!

There have been widespread reports of FCP 6.x losing render files with duplicated sequences, and I have experienced it myself.

A workaround that has done the job for me is copy/paste into a NEW empty sequence instead of duplicating the sequence.

John,

Does that fix it all the time? Is it always reliable or does FCP eventually lose it's way?

Its worked for me on at least a dozen sequences within one project.

I don't think that qualifies as extensive testing, but I am think it says something.

[John Pale] "but I am think it says something."

Sure does.

Thanks John. When you say copy/paste, you mean copying and pasting the entire sequence?

Yes. Instead of duplicating it, select its entire contents and paste it into the new empty sequence.

Havent had a problem since I started doing this. Your milage may vary.

Our work around for this problem which happens frequently is to output the sequence to a QT movie, then it's indestructable.

We've also had many instances of all our other motion renders being destroyed when we open a motion file with the "open in editor" command from the timeline.
