Multiclips inexplicably renaming master clips as Audio files
on Mar 28, 2016 at 7:05:05 pm

OK strange one here, and somewhat difficult to explain. Working on a television series with many 3 camera shoots. Everything is ProRes LT, with Audio captured separately as WAV. Multi clips work fine.

When I move multicam clips between projects, they end up giving the "A cam" (angle 1) the same name as the .WAV file in which they are synced with. So, when I go to collapse my multi clip angles, to prep for online, I'm left with many video clips that are renamed. If I go to reconnect media, it asks for the WAV file instead of the video file, which obviously is wrong.

My only work around right now is to create new master clips for affiliate clip in the timeline that has been renamed, and then in the browser choose "rename clip to match file".

This is a huge headache and I have not been able to google up the issue anywhere. Has anyone else run into this and am I explaining it correctly? Specs posted below, Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks CC gang!



Specs: iMac 27" Late 2012 w/ 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, 24g RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX running Final Cut Pro 7

I should also add that I am running FCP 7.0.3 on OS X 10.10.5

this looks very much like it's time to trash your preferences.
if you don't have Digital Rebellion's Preference Manager, you should get it.

Thanks for your response Nick. I do indeed have DR's preference manager. I will run it shortly. Can you explain how this might correct the issue I'm having?

" Can you explain how?"

not in any detail, sorry,
but weird behaviour in FCP (including display issues in the timeline) can be caused by corrupt preferences.
