Final Cut Pro X :: Application Not Responding After Trying To Open Event
Aug 31, 2014
I just updated to Final Cut 10.1.3
I was working on a project in final cut and my computer crashed. When I restarted my computer and Final Cut, it seemed ok. It opens on the project I was working on before the one I was working on when it crashed. When I go to scroll up in the event, towards where the most recent projects are, eventually I get the spinning rainbow of death and then final cut stops responding. I have forced quit and restarted it but the same thing keeps happening. When I open other earlier projects in the same event, they seem to open and work fine.
I tried 'Update Projects and Events' but when I click 'update all' it says that it can't find anything to update.

Yesterday one of my editors finished a project for a client. Today the client requested a change. When my editor opened FCPX 10.1.3 to make the change, my editor found the event he was working in yesterday to be completely empty. I stepped in to see what happened. Indeed he was correct, the event (Warm Springs) is completely empty! When clicking on the event , the "import media" button shows thus validating the idea that FCPX sees this event as empty.
When I went in to look at "show package contents," It shows that there is indeed stuff in that event. What my editor may have done to cause this problem in the first place but why there is stuff in finder level of the event file but nothing is showing up in FCPX?
I am having an issue with final cut x where videos aren't being imported into an event. I have tried using the import option and dragging and dropping the files. The files are mp4 which I've never had an issue with importing before. The program was working just fine a few minutes before this happened.
I have a Library containing 22 Events which are numbered instead of named. Each event contains Green Screen clips whose thumbnails all look the same. I found the set of (Piece to Camera) clips I want, using a keyword search of the Library - but now I want to create a Compound Clip in the relevant Event so that I can do a rough edit (discard unsuitable and duplicated narrative etc).
Next, I want to copy the remaining good clips from this Compound to a new Project - in a different Library. I don't want to copy the unwanted clips.My problem is, finding the Event these clips originated from. I can use the disclosure triangle on each Event in turn, but surely there's a better way to find the parent Event of a clip in the browser?
The first thing I do after importing my media is I sync the secondary audio with the video clips.
The audio clips are usually named Zoom... or Tascam... and the video is typically named MVI... or something else.
Going back and forth between the correct take of the audio and the correct take of the video requires that I scroll up and down the list. It would be great if you could split the view into two separate lists and that way you could easily see both while syncing.
At my job I was given a new computer with an updated version of Final Cut Pro (FCP 10.1 - my old computer has FCP 10.0.7 installed). I tried moving my fcp events from my old computer to my new computer via an external drive.
The events did not show up in the fcp software on my new computer after plugging in my external drive.
I plugged my external drive back into my old computer. The events showed up but I could not locate any of the projects associated with those events.
Aren't projects stored inside events? How can I locate these projects so I can move them to my new computer?
I have an event file that when selected crashes the app. I don't need it, but cannot select it to delete it.
I opened the package contents of the Library and found the offending file, and successfully moved it to my trash. However, it still appears in the event list when I restart FCP X (version 10.1.3). I have attempted to close the library and reopen it, close the app and reopen it, but still it persists.
Is there a way to force the library to rebuild itself, or something else that will remove it from the event list? (FYI it appears with a warning triangle).

I have a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark on my event. I was working on it and noticed it when I restarted FCP X. Could be that FCP X was crashing while copying or something. But now I don't get it away. But I looked into it.
The 4 photo's and 1 piece of music were quickly found in the menu left of the timeline. But there are two strange stings going on:
1. Scrubbing through the timeline, at certain points the Beach-ball begins to spin and won't stop. I waited 30 minutes (nothing), restart FCP X (nothing), rebooted (nothing), cleaned with Onyx (nothing): I had to force quit FCP X. I cannot see where it goes wrong, but it's at multiple points.
2. While using "relink files" all went wrong. It found photo's with te same name (but in fact other pictures). I deleted those. I went in the library (within Finder) to the Original Files folder, replaced the aliasses of the files pointing to a _Trash folder within the library. I thought the right pictures were back: no. I've dragged those back from iPhoto into the event, with the music also (from iTunes). There double now, but everything is good... except for the exclamation-mark!
Then I made a new library, dragged the project to the new library: copy used clips except the two options given (proxy en render files?). The new event also got a exclamation mark. I played the whole thing: no crashes, no beach-balls, no red missing clips signs, no yellow exclamation-mark in the Timeline Index.
In the original project I can now scrub little pieces (without spinning beach-balls) and I see the pictures on the timeline (in the preview) but with a yellow exclamation-mark in the index...? It cannot be found in the eventbrowser... how strange is that?
Since the update to Final Cut Pro X 10.1.3 I cannot go back to a previous library. What do I do. I'm afraid if I continue to edit things will go south later on.

I can import only selected portions of video clips from my iPhone5. At present I have to import the full length of the video clip into the event and in so doing, I am unable to 'weed' out unrequired segments. Is editing the video clip in the iPhone itself the only option one has or is there any other way of doing it during the import process itself?

I accidentally moved an event from my library to the trash (from within FCPX using the 'move event to trash' command). I realized what I did right away and hit 'undo' from the file menu. When I open the event library I can see everything there, but the project is not showing up in FCPX, even after restarting the program.
Is there a way to save the project? I also saved all of the project files/folders, including the 'current version' to a separate folder before accidentally trashing (copied them to a backup with the master files I created). Is there a way to restore those files? I like to save the project folders/files with my masters in case I ever has to revisit any project for any reason. Figured I could just drop them back into the directory and then reimport all of the 'missing' media.
Recently my event clips and timeline clips have turned grey and no video imagery shows unless I pass the cursor over the individual clip. I was close to finishing this project and it plays in the viewer but making adjustments etc seems impossible. FCP is updated and I have restart the computer several times. I have used FCP for 3 years and have never had this problem.

I just updated to Final Cut Pro X 10.1.3. FCPX is not responding. It has the spinning wheel going. Now it is not functioning at all!
In the Activity Monitor it shows 2 programs as "(Not Responding)" Those are: Final Cut Pro and Codec32BitTool.
When I open the FCPX program, it seems that the spinning wheel starts as soon as I try to preview a clip. I have tried using new projects, projects updated from 10.1.2, and I have also tried with a new user. All have the same result. Not responding!!!
If only I had not updated some critical projects to 10.1.3, or I would simply revert back to 10.1.2.
I have upgraded my software to 10.9.3 and now I am having serious issues with all of my applications just freezing up with all of the applications saying Application Not Responding. I am using a iMac 2.8 GHz core, 4G Memory, 800 Mhz. I have as much additional memory installed as I can.
I am running a MacBook Pro with OS X 10.7.3 and the latest version of Office 2011 with all the updates installed. Both run very slow and now I noticed that when I click on either icon in the dock it says "Application Not Responding" even though the applications are responding, just very slowly. If I close either application and then reopen it, the message is gone until I open a new document.
I've been working on avery complicated project all day with multiple layered clips with key frame animations, colour effects etc. All was fine until I opened a new project in the same event which I was going to use to create some effects sequences for the main project. When I went back to the original project it was empty. Tried the Undo function in case I had done anything stupid but it was greyed out. Went to the FCPX backups and the last file was almost 2 hours old but did not have any sign of this project. The only thing I have left is all the imported media.
Using FCPX 10.1.3. This is really annoying as all I have left is an h264 file of the almost complete project and it will be almost impossible to start from scratch.

I have the white MacBook, I've had it about 2 years now. I was wondering if maybe I have too much on my hard drive and that is why my most commonly used applications have suddenly begun to close mid-use. I've never had this problem before and have recently uploaded quite a bit of music/photos to my MacBook, so it seems to be the only logical explanation for it? Or, I don't think I could've gotten a virus because 1. I'm very cautious about the files I download and 2. I don't think Macs are susceptible to most viruses. I could be wrong, though.
Nonetheless, does anyone know of any solution for this?
One thing that annoys me about iCal is that when I hit the shortcut to create a new event, I have to hit another shortcut to bring up the edit window. Ideally the edit window would pop up immediately upon creation of a new event, but I can't find a way to make this happen.
Does anyone know a work-around for this?
Another annoying thing is that I can't just hit Cmd-N to open a new event; I have to make sure I'm in a calendar that can be edited before creating a new event. I don't think there's a fix for this; I think it's just one of those things.
I searched for info about this, but I didn't find anything.
I have a MacBook Pro and it seems that every time I try to open my iTunes it doesn't open; it says iTunes is not responding and so when I force quit the application it comes up with a problem report to send to apple because I have force quit it.
I a new to mac. I am trying to open a ".config" file but I get this error message: "There is no default application specified to open the document xxxx". Normally, on a Windows, I would just force open it with notepad as it conly contain text. How do I do the same with a Mac?
No matter what type of file (.avi or .mp4) I try to open, QT immediately goes to "Not Responding"... Software is completely up to date. I don't know what else to do... It won't let me trash QT to re-install but I think that's what I need to do.
