Yesterday I saved the project I was working on and close the program. I closed the computer. I opened it again today and it says that 30 files are offline. I tried to reconnect them but on the scratch disk folder they do not appear anymore. So I went to the back up of the raw files, I looked for the corresponding scene and instead of being having the name that appears on the thumbnail of fcp it had a different name (i.e. Clip #125 was actually rawb file clip #130)
Not only fcp canceled the scratch file but also changed its name. And all by itself. This is not the first time it happened.
What can it be? What can I do to solve the problem?
Are you by any chance running FCP 7.0 just as it was installed without any updates? If so, there were some problems with the very first release of FCP 7 that have been well documented. If that's not the case, then you have some other anomaly.
BTW, what video codec are you editing? You always need to divulge this at the very minimum when looking help, and we should never have to ask.
Thank you for the answer.
Sorry if I did not post the codec but I am not an expert and I do not know where to look to find it out. I have read thousands of reviews in different forums and I was so deppressed that I just wanted someone to tell me what was going on.
