FCP altering source footage? Mysterious...
on Jun 1, 2011 at 3:01:10 am

Hey FCP experts...

Weird thing happening with big project on FCP. I have a couple of drives full of footage, digitized from tape a couple years ago. (Not that it matters, but it's DVCPRO HD stuff. A couple terrabytes worth.)

I've been editing away on this project for a couple of years, without touching the footage files. But when I look at the "modified date" in finder, sometimes it shows that while they were created when I digitized them, they were "modified" recently. Sometimes as recently as the day I'm editing.

This occasionally happens with graphics files as well. Something I rendered out a month ago and didn't touch will show "modified" recently. I think it has something to do with FCP importing and rendering. Could it be doing some kind of re-rendering on the footage itself?

thanks for any thoughts,

Tom

Spotlight is indexing your drive.

Is that all? That makes me feel better. Thanks John! I wonder why it does that to only some files and not to others?

You can tell Spotlight not to index your media drives in System Preferences and see if the issue persists.
