FCP7 - A1 not playing.
on Nov 30, 2013 at 4:35:53 pm

Hey all, I've searched the forums and found several threads that were similar. I have tried everything I can think of plus the suggestions of some posters out here.
So, all of a sudden, Final Cut decided to stop playing my narration track (A1). A2-A6 play just fine.

I have tried these things (to no avail):
• Restarting FCP
• Restarting my Machine
• Shutting Down My Machine
• Trashing FCP Preferences
• Ensured that the Audio is All 48k/16bit (wav)
• Ensured that my audio clips are not muted, disabled, automated, or turned down in the audio mixer panel
• Ensured that my audio files play in the Viewer/Source Monitor
• Moved the audio to a different track
• Disconnecting and Reconnecting Media


Please help! Is this a corrupt FCP file or is there something I'm missing?

Nope, that's what I meant when I said I moved it to another track.

Check to see if you accidentally hit the Clip Enable keystroke command sometime for that particular clip ... select the clip and then go to the Modify menu and try the Clip Enable command to see if this fixes it ...

I discovered the issue. Appears to have been some Media Reconnect issues FCP wasn't letting me know about. I had all the source files backed up on an NTFS drive (originally on a mac OSX journaled drive). When I reconnected everything with the backup drive (same file/folder structure) apparently the narration stuff went AWOL – even though it appeared as connected and displayed waveforms.

I opened it today and it prompted me to reconnect and then everything worked fine. I had to click reconnect on the file in the timeline before it would work, but it played the audio just fine.

Thanks for the suggestions!

–Jon
