I don't recall this happening prior to the FCPX 10.4 update. When I retime a clip, faster or slower, then change the quality settings to either better performance or better graphics, either way, I lose the retiming indicators. The retimed footage is still effected by the retiming, but the indicator bars disappear which is obviously a big deal since you have no visual clue as to what has been retimed.

don't recall how it was handled prior 10_4 too, but in my workflow I find those orange bars disturbing when done the retiming ;)

cmd-R toggles it on/off

Thank you Karsten! I never had it disabled before so I must have accidentally done so.

Now, here's another "bug" that I'm hoping is equally a non-issue.

Have a look at RT's MacBreak # 362. I've tried replicating the exact steps in 10.4 and it does not seem to work for me.



Although I was not able to duplicate their workflow and get it to work, I did find a workaround.

nope, sorry to tell you:
following advice slavishly giving by the RippleTwins - and it works like charm…

What exactly doesn't work for you …?

/hint: not every 'doesn't work here' has the potential to be called 'bug' … ;) /

Not having these issues here, it all works fine. Trash prefs, trash renders, reinstall app, etc?

Hi Karsten,

Regarding the "disappearing" retiming indicators, yes, the Command R shortcut did indeed make them visible again. However, when switching between best performance and best graphics, again they disappear and have to be reinvoked using the shortcut. I am very sure this was not the case prior to the 10.4 update and in my view, is indeed a bug .

As for the issue with the ability to copy a selected audio range - after I refreshed my preferences I can now copy the selected range and paste it. However...pay close attention to about the 2:30 mark in the MacBreak #362 episode. Steve has disabled the selected range of the original clip, and copies and pastes (using Option V) that selected range below the original. But the REAL magic is that despite copying what was a DISABLED selected range, the newly pasted range is not disabled. When he's done adding the effect to the copied range, he collapses the audio and the copied range sits underneath the original clip directly below the disabled original range.

I am very curious to see if you are able to replicate that behavior. I cannot. When I copy the disabled selected range, the range that gets pasted is also still disabled (unlike Steve's video which shows an ENABLED clip getting pasted). It gets stranger from there. Although I said my pasted range is disabled, if I toggle 'V' on and off I visually see that the clip goes from slightly dark to less dark (i.e. presumably enabled/disabled). However I cannot apply any effect to it. Thru sheer accident I discovered that the truly "enabled" part of the audio range was hiding and that I physically had to drag it across from the left border of the clip...and wallah....the clip brightened up to a truly "enabled" clip that I was able to apply an effect to, collapse everything, and achieve the final result.

Truly bizarre. Would be happy to send a video showing all of this if it would be helpful.

Now, 'we' discuss your observation in TWO of your posts … would you please stay on topic of your very own posts? It's a hell of a job to moderate all this confusion….

And, again: not every 'not here!!' is it worth to yell 'bug!'
True, Apple has obviously changed something with Expanded Audio Components, which is not considered in that 2016 tutorial of RT … tell RT.

I can confirm the retiming bar behavior, but I think that has always been like that. Wouldn't swear to it. But, then, one would not be switching that setting much at all during an edit session. So makes no difference to me, personally.
