FCP wanting to render clips that don't need rendering...
on Oct 26, 2011 at 5:11:19 am

Greetings Folks,

I opened my movie project to discover that all the clips that never needed to be rendered before now need to be rendered!

Timeline is ProRes 4444, and I export all my graphics from AE to that codec. I just drag them onto the timeline and they don't need any rendering.

But today I open the project and all those files need to be rendered for some reason. I even double checked by dragging one of the clips onto an empty sequence and saying "yes change sequence settings to match clip" and it still needs to be rendered.

Running on 10.6.8 with latest FCP (not FCPX).

Any thoughts would be great!!!

-Tom

Hi Tom

This would usually happen if your clips contain an alpha channel. However, you say that in the past the same clips haven't needed rendering. Are you certain that they don't contain an alpha channel, i.e. the clips have transparent areas?

Thanks Alex. Yeah alphas threw in the past but in this case is actually the bizarre scopes issue. See's Bret's comment below.

This was driving me nuts recently. Are you using scopes? If you are you may have video scopes playback turned on. It makes no sense but it has happened to me before. Turn off scopes playback and problem is fixed.

Bret, you're a kind hearted soul and a genius. This was the problem. Everything is working as it should now. I have to say, it is one of the DUMBEST bugs I have EVER encountered in my life. Turning on scopes forces renders? And alas, it will never be fixed...

Yeah. I kinda understand if it can't play back AND do scopes at same time, but if that's the issue then rendering should make no difference. Odd that it even let's you render.

I wouldn't mind if it didn't let me play back... But to force a render? As a quality nut I try to avoid generations of rendering at all costs. I tried importing the actual render file... and with scopes on, it says it needs to render that as well.
