I was editing a really important project when FCP X froze. I closed it and when I opened it my timeline had turned gray and now I can't see any of my editing in the timeline. I trashed my preferences, reinstalled the app, and still doesn't work. I even exported the project to XML but it appears all unorganized if I import it in a new project and doesn't display well.


Please help me. I mean I don't know what to do. How can I rely ever again on FCP X if I can lose my work just like that!

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
