FCP 6.0.5 will not re open
on Feb 1, 2010 at 11:13:18 pm

I have been working on a project that is due tomorrow of course. I took a break and when I came back to reopen FCP... The program opened and just when it finishes "Preparing video for display" it then goes in to "Un expectedly Quit" I have tried to open it again several times but I am still getting the same result.

I can open FCP from the program Icon, but not this project. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

#44: FCP acting weird - Trash Prefs

Shane's Stock Answer #44: FCP acting weird or unusual. Just not like is normally should

If the program was working fine, and now isn't, or just isn't working the way it should, the first things to do are:

1) Trash your FCP preferences. Download the Preference Manager from Digital Rebellion:

2) Open the Disk Utility and Repair Permissions.

3) Shut down for 10 min. Go for a quick walk around the block and get SOME exercise today. Come back, turn on the computer and see how things are.

4) (optional) Do the Hokey Pokey and turn your self about. Results may vary.

Hi Geoff,
If it quits when "preparing the media for displaying" is clearly some media, or element in the time-line, what is causing the quits.
Put all the media off-line, and bring back in small batches until you find the offending clip, still, or whatever .
