can't drag audio file in FCP timeline
on Oct 7, 2011 at 7:30:12 pm

I am attempting to click and drag an AIFF music file within my FCP3 timeline and it won't let me. I click on the file within the time line and +(or-) frames and it will move but I can't drag. I have trashed my prefs and still nothing. Never had this issue before. I have set up a ton of markers on the clip (to go with the beat...maybe that is the issue). Thanks

Any in/out points set in your timeline? Do you have the audio patched to the audio tracks you want?

There were no in/out points on that clip and it's a stand alone (not linked to any other clip). I just reimported and remarked the clip and it is working fine, strange issue though that I have never experienced. Thanks for the reply.

I have a similar issue, but it's not just the audio clips.

I have an indexed media file, one video and 2 audio tracks, that will not move by dragging. When I try to drag I get a small yellow window that has xx:xx;xx in it and nothing happens.
If I go to the "+" key and enter a value, the clip will move.
If I drag up or down to a different track, the clip is deleted.
If I use the blade and make a cut, the clips will move using drag.

I tried a new sequence, and a new project with the media file copied to it and get the same results.

The tracks are not locked.
Any ideas?

Using Final Cut Pro 7.0.3 on MacPro running OS X 10.6.8
Thanks for any tips or clues!

Anyone have any ideas on the problem here?
It has happened again, and the clips with the issue are crashing FCP!
Thanks for ANY help!
Joy

I had this same problem today. I ended up exporting the audio as a wave using quicktime conversion and then re-importing it into the sequence. This worked and the clip is now moving without issues.
