Was out of the office for 2 months. When I got back I installed the Software Updates without thinking. Now, video files will not play in FCP 7.03. They appear green and I can hear the audio.
When I try to play them in QuickTime 7.66 or 10.0, the video is black, but the audio plays.
I am running MAC OS 10.6.8. I think, that might have been one of the Software Updates. I probably was running 10.6.7 before the update (but I'm not sure).
Any ideas how to remedy this problem?
I have an older Time Machine back up of my applications. But recently I've been backing up my data files on different drives without the use of Time Machine. I've never used time machine to restore files. Any ideas on the best way to just restore the applications I just updated?
it is the best OSX for FCP to me. Its running flawless on our editing systems - no problem. I wonder, whether your system causes problems.
Did you run all updates for 10.6.8 ? (I recommend that)
Then repair permissions
then trash FCP Preferences
then restart your computer,
normally this should resolve your problem.
