fcp 6 icon for still showing as red and black - why
on Oct 31, 2014 at 11:06:48 pm

Hi thanks for reading

Why do you think it is that some of the icons in the timeline and in the browser icon view are showing an icon that instead of being the media depiction, is, a red and black icon w white writing on it - reading Media Offline (when it is not offline)?

all the media is connected....nothing is needing connection

when u double click on the icon, the picture shows nicely in the viewer.

It is as if the icon has not been updated.

What do you think?
Warmly,
Hope

mmmmm.... have you trashed preferences lately?

Digital Reballion has a danday Preferences manager for FCP, and it's free.

Oh, the Preference manager is easy to use. Preferences get mucked up in FCP every so often. The Preference Manager lets you trash preferences without losing all the tweaks you've made over time to the way you like FCP.

You might try closing the project, deleting the thumbnail cache and then opening the project back up. Sometimes the link to the thumbnails gets wonky and this will force it to rebuild them.
