Jim McNamee replied to the topic 'Old Project...lost fonts' in the forum. 1 year ago

Problem solved. I used Rinaldo's recommendation and searched through the CurrentVersion.fcpevent in Text Edit for all the fonts. Then, since FCPX had to update the library to work with the version of FCPX I'm using I still had the old version of the library (before everything reverted to Helvetica). Once I had the correct fonts installed I re-opened tha safety copy and everything was as it should be. Thanks again!

Jim McNamee created a new topic ' Old Project...lost fonts' in the forum. 1 year ago

Ok...so I have to go back to a project from 2016. Since then I've replaced the hard drive on my imac and I must not have installed all the fonts from my subscriptions. I've opened the project and all the fonts are reverting to helvetica. Is there any way to read an old project and find out what fonts were used? FCPX doesn't do a good job of warning that fonts are missing! Or am I not knowing where to look?

Jim McNamee replied to the topic 'Making an edit jumps to end of project' in the forum. 2 years ago

Joema, I have Hazel installed and Witch but no keyboard utlities like keyboard maestro or text expander. I have the wired apple keyboard with numeric keypad and am running High Sierra 10.13.6, FCPX 10.4.3.

The new project seems to be working so far. I'll be bringing pieces from the other project over bit by bit so if one section starts the issue again I'll hopefully be able to narrow it down to a single clip, in which case I will report back. This new project that's been working ok is in the same library and event as the old one.

Ok so I restored defaults on system keyboard and trashed preferences in FCPX again. The problem was gone for a couple edits then came back. Right now I've copied the section of the project that I'm working on into a new project and am seeing if it recurs. Maybe something is corrupt in my timeline. But that's coming from my Avid troubleshooting experience so may not apply here.

Yes I don't know why it just started happening. It's very strange and frustrating. It happens for me in other projects now, too and I can't figure it out. In the mean time I've stopped using the keyboard for my edits unfortunately so I can keep working.

Wondering if anyone has seen this strange behavior before (I have not). For some reason FCPX has started jumping way past the end of my project when I perform a Q or W edit. The playhead stays where the edit was made but my timeline view goes way off into black space at the end.

Here is a video of the problem. In it I show the full length of the main storyline, zoom in, drag the range into the project (that works). Then I click q to append the same range to the storyline. The timeline view then jumps way into nothingness at the end of the timeline (not even to just the end of the main storyline). Then I move back to where the edit was made and the clip is there.

This is super annoying! I deleted my preferences and re-installed FCPX and have made a new project and copied the clips from the current project into it and the problem persists.

Done. I think I've reported this to them before but not in the past year. I also have the problem when adjusting animation keyframes on a clip in a connected storyline...similar issue. Do you experience that as well? It's probably related.

This seems like such a big bug that they would have fixed it by now as it's been several years.

I have an issue adjusting color correction on clips in attached storylines (not primary). 9/10 times FCPX will jump to the first clip in my project when start manipulating the color board. See video below. I've had this problem for a few years and always update to the latest release. It has also happened on two different installations of FCPX (two different imacs).

Jim McNamee replied to the topic 'Mouse Recommendation' in the forum. 2 years ago

I love the logitech MX Anywhere mouse. It may be smaller than what you are looking for (although that's one of the reasons I like it). It has forward/back buttons on the left and the scroll wheel can switch between soft scroll and scroll with indents (pushing the wheel down changes the behavior). There is also a programmable button behind the wheel. And the wheel gives you horizontal scrolling by pushing it left or right.

Jim McNamee created a new topic ' Red Raw settings buggy? Need help' in the forum. 3 years ago

Does anyone else have issues with the built-in "Modify RED RAW Settings" process in FCPX? I'm running Red Apple Workflow v11 and FCPX 10.3.4. I'm trying to revert all my Raw clips to a neutral setting before color correction and my changes don't want to take and many times it gives me the error "Final Cut Pro must complete other tasks before performing this operation...The operation cannot be performed because "Calculate Render Bar" is running in the background. Use the Background Tasks window to monitor or cancel the task before trying again" ...but nothing is running in the background! Seems like a bug but I've never worked with RED footage before.

More details: I have 17 RED clips from an Epic-X in my hour-long documentary. I'm preparing to send this out for color correction at a post house. Our process is to color correct from a ProRes HQ quicktime that I export, so I need to revert all my clips to a neutral tone so our colorist has enough to work with.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Jim McNamee replied to the topic 'Need quick way to locate non 48 kHz audio in project' in the forum. 3 years ago

Ahh good idea (didn't know I could add "used media" as a criteria in the smart collection. Since i'm actually looking for all the non-48k media I will make it "does not" include 48.

If the mix was being done in protools or if I was editing in avid this would not be a problem (in avid you can convert the sample rate of everything in a sequence, and protools can convert on input). But the mix is being done in Nuendo and they tell me they need everything 48k in the AAF I'm sending (via X2PRO).

Can anyone think of a quick way to locate all 48 kHz audio in a project? I need to convert all the non 48 kHz before our mix and before I get a list via XML and replace each one individually I though maybe someone had an easier way to do it. What about converting the managed media? Would it automatically relink or would this cause problems?

At a minimum I just need a list of everything that's not 48 kHz in my project.

No double notifications here either, just wondered why it was there twice.

Redifer, I find the notification center to be helpful and your comment not to be since it didn't address my question. I use DND when I need peace but otherwise I have set it up so I only get the notifications that I want. Same with my phone.

Lichinho...only one copy installed.

FCPX.guru...I submitted a bug report to apple via feedback.
