In serious need of assistance here!!!!
on May 31, 2011 at 2:11:38 pm

I'm in desperate need of help here. I've got a deadline today and at least 8 hours of work ahead of me and now this!!!!! So I copy a bunch of files from one timeline to another and all of a sudden I'm getting a "File error: access denied" followed by "Error" Out of Memory".
For the life of me I can't figure it out. I've searched the boards and found a bunch of topics on both but none seem to be both at the same time. I could play and edit the clips on the timeline I copied from and the timeline I was copying too was fine before I did the copying. Sorry if that confused anyone.

Basically, everything was fine until I copied. Can anyone help please?!!!!

Thanks,

Dave

Are you sure of the drive you're assigning the copy to? It's a separate drive and not the "C" drive, right?

Sorry.... all the files are on an Isilon shared server. Nothing is local.

Please give the exact item properties of the clips you're editing and the exact item properties of the sequence in which you're editing. Select a clip in the Browser and press Cmd-9 or Edit>Item Properties>Format. Select a sequence in the Browser and repeat.

All the best,

Tom

Both clips and sequences are Apple ProRes 422.

Can't help with that information. File errors are usually format errors, video or audio codecs, frame rates. Memory is more commonly image sizes, large still images, not enough still image allocation, or mismatches in sequence settings.

All the best,

Do you have a TON of stills in your sequence?
You can increase the still cashe.

Can you move the files local? Off the server?

No stills at all!!! This is so strange! I actually went back and opened up one of the auto saves. I figured I'd try and see if one of the files were corrupt. I copied each of the clips one at a time to the newer sequence and they all worked except the last one. That one caused the problem. So it looked like I found the bad clip. Odd that I could play the same clip on its' own timeline though. So I took the original clip from its' folder on the drive and dragged it too my new sequence.... it plays fine! No idea why I couldn't copy and paste it. I'm just glad I got it to work this way! Hopefully I don't blow up my system today. LOL!

I appreciate all the assistance!

Dave
