Canvas shows black

Today in Final Cut, the canvas shows only black and icons don't show up in the timeline, no matter if it's an existing project or a new one.

The video is there, I've made Quicktime movies to verify it, I just can't see what I'm editing.

Any suggestions?

#15 White or Black Canvas or Viewer

Shane's Stock Answer #15: White or Black Canvas or Viewer

Make sure the canvas or viewer are selected then go to VIEW>CHANNELS and set it to RGB. It might be set to ALPHA.


Click on the drop down menu above the Viewer or Canvas and make sure that you are on IMAGE or IMAGE + WIREFRAME.

Actually it was simple. Somehow canvas display was set to wireframe only! I reset it to image.

Feeling very stupid!
