Hi!
I have run into a clear bug - I CHANGED NOTHING, yet suddenly FCPX says a few files are 'missing'.
When I select 'show in finder' - FCPX correctly locates the files in the finder.
  • Deleting and reimporting does not fix it
  • Deleting file, restarting mac and reimporting file does not fix it
  • Deleting and redoing proxies does not fix it
  • Deleting prefs does not do it
Anyone fixed this?

Hi Lukeyo. Not sure it is a bug but definitely weird. I had a similar issue before but it was fixed with the preferences reset and renaming files.

Have you tried to create a new Library with the same footage, a new fresh project and copy and paste the old project in the new library?

Just an idea. I did that before in Motion with some weird behaviour and it worked for me.

Please post screenshots of what you're seeing. There are different warning icons.

What if you select one of the missing clips in FCP, then do File>Relink Files>Original Media, and point to the location of the media file (which was shown in Finder). Does it relink? If not what is the error?

I've got a few questions:
- What version of FCPX / macOS?
- Does the problem show up in both the browser and timeline?
- Does anything change if you disable any/all effects on the clip(s)?
