Final Cut Pro doing some weird stuff...
on Feb 1, 2012 at 9:30:29 pm

Hi Cows,

This is bugging my brain and causing me serious working issues.

1. Finished piecing film together. It's HD video with a couple of imported jpgs thrown on top of some of the clips.
2. In and Out points set.
3. Export as usual, with all usual settings.
4. Watch .mov back after export and all the jpgs have miraculously disappeared.

Now, I've REALLY triple checked for the obvious mistakes on my part - opacity down by accident, etc, etc. but I've been editing using FCP for years and years and this is new to me. I've shut the computer down multiple times and still the same issue.

???

Are the jpeg files bigger than 4,000 pixels in any dimension? Have they been saved with a DPI setting other than 72?

This tutorial by Walter Biscardi might help to make sure your jpeg assets are good for FCP

Other problems might be an FX plugin filter that you have applied which is beyond your graphics card to render. I suspect you are exporting using Quicktime Conversion rather than Quicktime Movie.

Hi and thanks,

Jpgs are small, no filters applied...This literally started happening out of the blue about a week ago and strange thing is I hadn't even had my editing Mac on for the week prior to the issue.

Seems like a true ghost in the machine - can't work out why it keeps happening.

hmmm... maybe time for a re-install of software?

Have you done the usual maintenance - repaired disk permissions, Trashed preferences?

Digital Rebellion make free software to help preference trashing

try exporting small sections of the timeline to isolate where the problem might be...a bit of a jpeg and a bit of videoetc...

You could also try changing your jpegs to tiffs or pngs. I have recently started using PNGs instead and they seem to work a little better
best
