I'm running 10.4.2 and I've been working on some long interviews that we synced via PluralEyes 3.5 and imported to Final Cut via XML import. That must be the root of the problem, why after a few days both the audio files and video files turned black in browser and timeline. I was able to fix about half of the back clips by reimporting them from their external location, then restarting Final Cut and since then those files seemingly randomly either appear as normal or black upon launch of the library.
I want to get to the bottom of this, and I know it's been a problem for years for people not careful with how they import into the library. Did anybody ever solve this?
