FCp error! Weird error pop up slow startup!
on Mar 19, 2012 at 1:20:08 pm

I am experiencing slow start up with my FCP. It takes forever to load then pops up a weird screen. The screen started to appear only during start up, but now seems to pop up randomly . This only happens when running FCP.



See image below. I was working off an external hard drive and then copied media and folders over to a local drive. I am wondering if it is searching for some type of render files or various media.

Where's your scratch disk NOW? You need to tell FCP where it is.

My scratch disk location hasn't changed. It is the same on every project I work on.

I misunderstood. It appears you'll have to reconnect media once you get the project to open. Or reconnect that external drive and media manage the files in question to the new location.

Yes, I have done that but I am getting the weird error posted in my 1st post.

Thanks

This might work: make an all-new FCP project. Make sure it doesn't want to see that external drive by saving it, quitting FCP, and opening the project. Once both projects are open, drag everything from the old one into the new one. Close the old project without saving, and save the new project.

I had a wired one lke this a while back. Deleting my thumbnail and waveforms cache did the trick. Then open the project and tell it to forget anything it couldn't find and saved the project. Cod work.

Yeah, that makes sense; people rarely remember to move waveform cache files and render files in addition to the media if they migrate to a different drive.

Cool...well, I'm curious to see if it worked for the OP. My problem started after deleting render files directly in finder rather than using the render manager.

We move files around from computer to computer so THE Render files were not copied also. Perhaps this was the issue too.

Thank you again! You saved me a lot of time.

Nice! Glad I could help. That's one of those really obscure things so whenever I see it on here, I suggest that fix!
