FCP unknown file error
on Sep 15, 2010 at 10:18:42 am

Hey, I've had a lot of problems with being unable to re-save to a file on the network. Having to Save locally and then transport to the network manually has caused a lot of problems. We're currently using version 6, has this problem been corrected in the new version, and has anyone discovered why this happens.

thanks

adam

You need to give way more details about you entire setup and what you're trying to do.

Jeremy's right about giving details, but here's a simple question:

When was the last time you either restarted your machine or shut it down and started up again? Doing so solves a good number of minor FCP woes.

Hey,
My computer is shut down every evening after work usually so i don't think thats the problem.

I'm using Final Cut Pro 6.0.6 running on OSX 10.5.8.

The problem that occurs is simply that Final Cut will not save the file hat i'm currently working on, even if i've used it all day without any problems saving. Others have mentioned this problem on this forum and elsewhere and it seems to be a problem saving to a network. The usual workflow once this problem is encountered is to save the file locally and move it back to its network location, which is what we've being doing here and it sucks.
I've heard that drive spindown may be a cause have you heard of this?

This used to be an issue and there are applications preventing this.

Is good to let it open at night some times. MacOSX runs some maintenance routines at night.

More details. What network? What kind of san software? More, please.

I'm afraid i don't know much about network stuff but i've asked around and the San software is called Storage Area Network.

SAN is an initialism for storage area network. That is, they are one in the same.

There is probably some sort of permissions problem. Do you have someone who administers this network? Is this a post house? School? Corporation? Where are you?
