I have a master library for most of my assets. Went in to look at something today and realized one of my events is partially corrupted? About half the audio files don’t show a waveform and won’t play any sound. Some of them cut off halfway through? If I select the clip and reveal in finder they play just fine. Anyone seen anything like this?

Thanks,

JT

So I went through the project again, and every library asset is fine except one. There are a mixture of .mp3 and wav files in the library. So I'm thinking of converting all the audio files to a new format and re-linking them. Are there some type of audio files that FCPX does not like?

Thanks,

JT

I've had trouble with ac3 audio causing periods of spinning beach ball.

Others using early versions have had problems with mp3, but I have never had a problem using mp3 audio since I got FCPX at ~10.1.6

Solved

I had some audio files that FCPX didn't like. Converting them to WAV files fixed the issue.
