Lost timeline
on Apr 16, 2018 at 5:57:47 pm

Hi,
I'm new to fcp x, used to fcp 7. I'm working on a project, and somehow on reaching the end I seem to have deleted the intro I've made... I've located the autosaves, but when I open any of them there is no timeline. It's as if all I've done is import footage, even though I know for a fact that I had started editing at the time of the autosave. I want to copy and paste my lost intro into my current project.
Can anyone help me find my timeline please?
And tell me how to copy from that project, then open my current project and paste to that?
Finding all the 'events' and key symbols very confusing. I am going on training in two weeks....
Thanks!

Can't tell from the image, but have you tried scrolling all the way up in the browser? Also, maybe you "rejected" it? I'm unsure if you can actually do that, but your window shows "hide rejected."

It was rejected! Thank you so much, I didn't even know you could do that.
Thanks for your help! My training can't come soon enough..

Hmm though the sound has gone, and I can only see one layer of my editing, I can't see the alternative angles I had underneath..any ideas there?

Christie,

Make sure you're not confusing your Multiclip with your Angle Editor.

The Multiclip (a clip showing 4 tiny boxes in it's ID bar) is a container that contains your angles.

Double click on it and it should open the multi-clip in the Angle Editor - which displays the content that FEEDS the multi clip.

Good luck.

Look under smart collections and then the Project selection. Any and all projects from that Library will live there.
