Currently Being ModeratedJan 16, 2010 7:44 AM (in response to deus ex machina)It sounds as if you did not create the subclips correctly. It sounds as if you put the clips in the timeline, makred In and Out points in the timeline, and made that a subclip. I guessing because you didn't actually say what you did to create the subclips.15" 2.4G MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

if there's a way to reset FCE to its default settings, which I suspect would solve the problem
The way to reset FCE to its defaults is to trash FCE preferences.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 16, 2010 9:00 AM (in response to deus ex machina)What do the "subclips" that are in the Browser look like in list view? Do they look like clips with torn edges, or do they have yellow bars on them?15" 2.4G MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 16, 2010 3:46 PM (in response to Tom Wolsky)I think I solved the problem (sort of). The clip I am using was imported from iMovie 09, after I changed it to a XML file. For some reason this type of file doesn't seem to act the same as a QuickTime file imported into Final Cut Express, which opens up a Viewer window automatically upon a double-click on the clip in the Browser.
This doesn't quite make sense to me as to why a XML file would act in such a fashion, though I had no trouble opening a Viewer when I imported a QuickTime file into FCE.
I will try opening up the file in iMovie 09 (which I cannot stand. If iMovie 06 had the functionality–converting to XML files–I would stick with that)
The XML file seems to bypass the Viewer entirely, and open in the Browser and the TimeLine.
Strange, though it does lead me to search under importing iMovie 09 XML files into Final Cut Express.
Thanks for the assistance.iMac G5/1.6 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
