Bill Parker replied to the topic 'Missing clip - or is it?' in the forum. 6 months ago

Thanks. I've been through this one already. I tried one download and couldn't get the software to open and sent an e-mail to another one which kept bouncing back. The gods are conspiring again but I'll keep at it until someone takes pity on me. Doesn't anyone want my money? thx!

Bill Parker created a new topic ' Missing clip - or is it?' in the forum. 6 months ago

I recorded a show last night on my GH5 that lasted an hour. The battery died at the end while it was still recording. When I went to import the clip, it wasn't there. And yet, when I started recording, it read 4hrs 30 minutes. When I put the chip back in the camera, it reads 3 hrs 30 minutes. So why does it read as if it recorded that whole hour? Is it possible that it's recoverable? And don't ask why we didn't switch batteries!

Bill Parker replied to the topic 'Corrupted clip (?) won't export' in the forum. 6 months ago

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.

Thanks for your help.

Bill Parker created a new topic ' Corrupted clip (?) won't export' in the forum. 6 months ago

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!

That seemed to do the trick. I'm not sure what it was that worked for me. I believe it was Quick Fix which did a bunch of different things. Phew.

Thanks!

Bill Parker created a new topic ' Moving projects via finder' in the forum. 9 months ago

Is it possible to move projects from one library to another using the finder? I can't open one of my libraries because of permission issues that I can't resolve. I'm guessing there's a corrupted file in that library. I have identical media in the other library and only need one of the projects that are in the problem library. I tried copying the project using the finder and it even though it copied in the finder, it wouldn't open when I opened the library where I'd copied the project to. Ideally I'd fix the permissions issue but I've hit too many dead ends. thx!

Bill Parker replied to the topic 'weird clip playback issues from C100 into FCPX' in the forum. 1 year ago

Looks like Edit Ready did the trick. I'll see how this method holds up. I may wind up getting an Atomos Ninja, but I'll have to think about the file sizes. I'm using the C100 as a vlogging camera and my takes are about two minutes which is manageable. But I also shoot tons of long interviews and I use my GH5S for those.

Thanks for these thoughtful responses. They're very helpful.

Thanks for all these answers. Will definitely look into Edit Ready. Tempted to get an Atomos but Edit Ready sounds like a cheaper solution. What I don't get is why this problem has taken so long to emerge. I've been using the C100 for years without any of this. Maybe it's an aging thing (the camera, not me!) . It's now my second camera and I only use it once in a while so I don't want to invest too much in it at this point. thx!

I've been having a problem with imported clips from my C100. The clips play back fine on the card in my camera, but when I import them into FCPX, some of them have glitches and color shifts - it almost looks like a crease on an old videotape. I've used the same cards in my GH5S and have encountered no problems. I sent my C100 off to Canon and they haven't been able to duplicate the problem.

Has anyone run into something like this? Any suggestions? thx!

Bill Parker replied to the topic 'corrupted library' in the forum. 1 year ago

Thanks for the responses, particularly joema - that's above & beyond! I'll look into all of this. For the moment, I'm so swamped, I've just worked around the problem. Hopefully, there's s solution in there somewhere! I did get Digital Rebellion's Pro Maintenance Tools. That might be a good way to avoid these problems in the first place.

thx!

Bill Parker created a new topic ' corrupted library' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi. I have a library that I can't open - it keeps crashing whenever I try. My other libraries are fine. I've rebooted & trashed preferences to no avail. My backup library also crashes. I keep the library on an external drive and all the media in an external folder. Any suggestions? thx!

Thanks. Rebooting didn't help. Not sure how to locate a corrupt file. I'll look around. I used a back-up to work around it.

I just received a message trying to open an older project - doc could not be opened - permission denied - already in use by Laptop, etc. This is presumably the laptop I'm using so makes no sense. Has anyone else run into this? thx

It was recorded in 8-bit 1080p. The original file isn't even there. I'm thinking pilot error. I wonder who that could be! Thanks.

I just managed to play back the audio from the clip using Compressor. It's not the one I needed. Not sure what happened to it. THx

Bill Parker created a new topic ' missing clip' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi. I have a clip from my GH5 that shows up in the Original footage folder but isn't showing up in the browser in FCPX. I can't play back the original clip in the Finder. Is there a way to play back one of those clips? I'm missing a segment of an interview and I have a feeling that's the one. thx

Bill Parker created a new topic ' clip numbers confusing fcpx' in the forum. 2 years ago

I copied a library from one drive to another and am struggling to relink some clips after I open the library. I just noticed that the clips that are listed as missing are there but there are multiple clips with the same number (Clip #39 as an example belongs to three separate clips!). I obviously need to do a better job numbering my clips (I use a Canon C100), but I've never run into this problem before. Maybe FCP has a way to deal with the duplicate numbers when you're originally importing, but loses the plot when you copy the libraries and then need to relink the files. FCP won't let me relink the files even when I navigate to the right folder where the original clip resides.

Should I reimport those clips from their folders? I don't like the idea of renaming the original clips. And I can't reimport the footage as I don't have those files on my card.

thx!

Bill Parker replied to the topic 'multicam timeline collapse' in the forum. 2 years ago

That's how it usually works, but when I'm working on multiple projects, often that the mutlicam clip isn't there anymore when I go to access it and I'm locked out of it. Maybe I just missed it, but this has been driving me nuts. I'll see if it happens again. thx
