I have four clips from an interview in my timeline that I need to export with timecode to send off for transcripts. It repeatedly failed to export. I then exported them one by one until I found the culprit. I can see the clip play just fine in the timeline, but it won't export. I'm guessing it's a corrupted clip. Does that sound like the right diagnosis an d if so, is there anything I can do about it? I shoot with a GH5. I've never run into this before. thx!
Thanks. Just tried that and still ng. Couldn't get the jpeg to attach so I've written it out. This is the message that pops up:
The share operation "Master File has failed. The operation could not be completed because an error occurred when creating frame 271 ((Error 10008f, 00:00:1107 ,,((Error 12909c, P1021163.mov@ 00:00:11:08)..)).
If that's not gobbledygook to you, then I'm impressed! I don't mind not losing this particular clip, I'm just worried that it will keep happening and I can't access a longer more important clip. Frustrating that it's right there playing back beautifully but I can't use it. thx
You might try setting FCPX timecode to frames, then in the timeline, zoom in very far and navigate to frame 271 to see if there is an issue. Sometimes you'll find a stray frame attached or perhaps missing in that general area. You may be able to simply remove the particular frame, and then try your export again. After you follow Ben's advise of deleting render files, you may want to try to render that particular clip before exporting to see if that makes a difference.
dgwvideo - you're as genius! I did what you suggested and lo and behold, that one little black frame was the cause of the problem. I cut it out and everything went smoothly from there. I've never encountered anything like that before. I don't have the original clip on my card any more. I wonder if the problem started there or on import.
