    These are definately things to consider as well instead of alwaya cutting to the beat. Making it more story/narative driven. My work is prodominately weddings, so I'll need to start thinking more about this on my next edit.

    I typically try to time the beat, but it never seems to be on enough. Guess my ear hand reflexes arent what they used to be! It just seems like I'm wasting my time making markers if I just go back and do it scrub frame by frame.

    Waveforms never show up completely for me in FCPX, especially not when playing my project.

    I've tried listening to songs and timing hitting the M key with the beats so it will be simple to cut to later on. I find my marks are always off by too much that I end up going back and listening for beats, defeating the purpose. I was wondering if anyone could share the way they set up markers or any other techniques they may use for editing to the beat.

    I was able to do this for smaller groups, but not for my entire project. Hopefully by hitting the different groups I caught the problem clips and that this will be the last time exporting.

    It seems to be an optical flow issue on the clips that have come back lately. Is there a way to select all or a group and make them all normal again?

    A mix of stabilization, re-time, and/or optical flow. Nothing 3rd party used on them.

    I thought about doing that, but so far I've had 3 different clips give me the error and they are all from 2 different cameras. I feel like at this rate I'm going to have to export, get an error, fix, repeat until i get to the end.

    The issue is happening again, each clip/frame is there, but as Ronny mentioned it may be from optical flow. Is there a way to select every clip and make sure clips are normal? To go through every clip of an hour project will take too long.

    Also, does this mean we shouldn't be using optical flow anymore?

    The analysis files could be the cause, The original footage is a mix of avchd and h.264 that was all transcoded to prores by fcpx. Some of the clips may have optical flow check off as well. I trashed all the preference files and re-opened FCPX and have begun another try of exporting the master file at the moment.

    It seems to have failed at the same frame as the previous attempt with the same error. First frame 12178, then 12616, then 13270. There's nothing done to these clips besides stabilization. Any ideas on what could be the cause?

    I deleted the render files and I'm exporting the master file now without re-rendering first. It's been failing around the 12% mark so I'll report back hopefully after it works! Thanks Ronny.

    I keep getting the Error-1 message when trying to export my master file. It picked a frame that only had stabilization, so I move slipped the clip to removed that specific farm from the project and now I'm getting the same problem on a different clip/frame. Any suggestions on how to resolved this?

    Are you editing on the system drive or external? If external, what type of connection is being used?

    I also edit wedding footage and have had 1.5 hour timelines without major issues. Also, having multiple libraries open could cause the lagging.

  • Rob Belfi created a new topic ' M2T Files 1440x1080' in the forum.

    I was given .m2t files which I can't import directly in FCPX. I tried using MPEG Stremclip as I've seen people suggest that, but it won't work with purchasing the Mpeg-2 component. I have Toast which I've used in the past, but these files are coming up in Toast as 1440x1080 which I believe is from shooting with HDV? I could be wrong there.

    The rest of my files are 1920x1080, should I export from Toast as 1920x1080 or leave it 1440x1080 and let FCPX force it to fit the screen?

    I have a question about archiving a project that was optimized at the start. If I delete that footage and keep the original footage will all I need to do if I need to go back and change something down the road is re-render/optimize?

    I just want to be clear before I mess something up for the sake of save space/money of HD's.

    I'm unable to share my project via master files, 1080p, to compressor (which hasn't worked 6-9 months). The project is a lil over an hour long and all I did was import mts files from a bluray disc, not commercial, let fcpx transcode to proress, drop them in a project, and export.

    Anyone have any ideas I could try?

    I wasn't sure where to post this, but does anyone have a reliable Blu-Ray player they've installed and used on their Mac? I've purchased an external player/burner and can't seem to find a good player through a quick google search. Thanks.

    Can anyone suggest a modestly priced Raid device? It seems Pegasus is the preferred brand, but I' can't afford to spend a huge amount on one of their larger size drives. Thanks.

    I've downloaded an 8-point mask and can't figure out how to invert the mask so that when I duplicate the clip on top of the original I can use a blur to blur out what I don't want seen. I've attached 2 screen grabs of the effect parameters. Any would would be awesome!

    If I want to incorporate photos, originally canon raw files, can/should those be imported as is or converted to jpeg or another format?
