Final Cut Pro thinks my project is 360 03 Jun 2021 04:16 #114800

Hey all!

I'm hoping someone can help. Final Cut think that my project is 360 video and I can't figure out how to fix it. Even when exporting it has equirectangular properties that I can't change. My clips are all ok in terms of metadata but the project settings are unchangeable. Any ideas on what to do? I have added some screenshots.

Welcome to the forum!

Never seen that before. Try resetting your FCP preferences to see if this helps.

If resetting prefs doesn't work, you could try creating a new project, and specifically setting the project's frame size and frame rate specs you want (don't leave it in Automatic), then copy the timeline from the 360 project and paste into the new project.

Good idea!

Thanks guys, I have tried both of these suggestions and still no luck. I thought the copy and paste idea would work but when I do it the video doesn't show, it's just black whenever I press play. It's also always rendering. Never stops. So frustrating!

Turn off background rendering in your preferences (it gets turned on when you reset them).
Open the background tasks window to verify "rendering" is what is actually happening, and not something else.

I just updated from Mojave to Big Sur and now experiencing this issue out of nowhere. I have my timeline set to 3840x1920 and everything is normal but when I duplicate or create new project it makes it 360 no matter what I do. I'm still running fcpx 10.4.9.

I'm having the same issue! I've found that setting the resolution to 3840x1920 does it, not sure if I'm doing something wrong, probably I am, and nothing's coming up on Google as well!

The Video is set to 360. Can you change it?

I can change it, or at least the UI lets me change it back to Custom and then set the resolution manually, but if I set it to 3940x1920 and click okay, then clicking on Modify on the project shows it never changed :(

I was able to fix it by deleting the cache and resetting the format, then setting the resolution to 3840x1920 didn't convert the project to 360.

Sorry how do you delete the cache? do you mean render files and what not? I'm still having this issue.

In the browser select the library.
File menu, Delete Generated Library Files. (or something to that effect).
Select ALL render files.

Or get Final Cut Library Manager, which is super handy to have.

Yeah this hasn't worked for me. Still an ongoing issue. I know there's no point contacting Apple, they will just tell me to update to the latest version.

You have updated to Big Sur already, so what's wrong about updating FCP as well if it might solve your issue?

Generally the advice is to not update if you're in the middle of projects, which I am consistently (wedding filmmaker) as the libraries can become corrupt during the update process. This has happened to me before so I have to choose careful windows when it's safe to update.

That's correct. But you have updated your OS to Big Sur recently, which is much more risky to do when you are in the middle of a project as FCP is very tightly integrated with MacOS. And FCP 10.4.9 dates from August 2020 (-:

If you update the OS to the latest, you also should update FCP at the same time.

At the time I resolved it by selecting the library, then File -> Delete Generated Library Files and checked everything, but the problem came back and I can no longer get it fixed using that approach 🤷‍♂️

I don't think it has to do with the media, I can create a new library, then a new project with 3840x920 resolution and it still converts it to 360.

It appears that as long as I set that resolution it always converts my projects to 360, which is quite frustrating.

What happens if you make the project 3840x919?

It works fine as long as the resolution is not exactly 3840x1920, so I've temporarily set the resolution of my project to 3840x1921 while I edit, not sure if YouTube will let me upload this resolution and a single pixel won't cause any issues.
