Lost Sequence?
on Mar 15, 2011 at 5:48:51 pm

This probably belongs in the Basics forum, but I have been an FCP user since day one, and have never encountered this problem. I went back to make some tweeks to a previously completed project, and the timeline doesn't appear and there is no icon for the sequence in the browser. Is it possible to lose, hide or accidentally delete your main sequence?

Hi Chris,
You know well that the only acceptable reason should be "accidental deleting".
Did you already had a look to the Autosaved sequences?

Sorry to say that I don't use Autosave. There were so many problems early-on that I stopped using it and never went back. I would think that it should be more difficult to accidentally delete a sequence.

Did you drag it onto another folder by mistake?

Yeah, I thought of that. I can't find it anywhere else.

Your timeline window is open, right? You just can't find your actual sequence?

And you actually have autosave vault turned off in preferences? Its not that you just don't pay any attention to it? Because its autosaving unless you've told it not to.

If you've told it not to autosave, surely you back your project up somewhere, right? Tell me you do...

Thumbdrive? Time machine? CD? Anything? 'Cause if your sequence is highlighted and you hit 'delete' then its gone - unless you can undo. But once you've closed FCP you can't undo your way back.

In which case, sorry. I hope you'll turn autosave back on.

Good luck,
D

No sequence = no timeline window. I just can't figure out how I could have deleted the sequence without noticing the timeline disappearing. It's no huge loss. It was already finished and delivered. I just want to know what happened. I turned of AutoSave and have kept it off since version 3 or 4 when it was causing all sorts of problems. Is it OK now?

I've never had a problem either, going back to version 3. I use auto save backups regularly. In fact, mine is set to every five minutes; we had some memory leak problems with huge projects, and FCP would crash often.

Just curious, what problems did it cause?

Could you have had two projects open...and the sequence is in the wrong project?

Best,
