In FCP 7, when I try to export a project that plays fine in the timeline and has no offline indications in the browser, get an error message that files are offline.  Running reconnect media has no effect.  Project continues to play but not export and reconnect continues to show the media as unconnected.

Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    I think the first thing you should try is to trash your preferences using this.

    It is possible that your project has become corrupt.

    Create a new project, and in that new project create a new (empty) sequence. Now return to your troublesome sequence, and click anywhere on the timeline. Type Command + A to select all the clips, and then Command + C to copy them.

     

    Now click in your new sequence in your new project and once you have done that, type Command + V to paste all the clips into the new sequence.

     

    Now try your export from the new sequence.

    Need some info about your source footage and your sequence settings.

     

    Click on a source clip in your FCP Browser, and once selected, type Command + 9 to see the item properties for the clip. Either report those properties, or if easier, take a screen shot of the item properties and post that here.

     

    Then click anywhere in your timeline of the troublesome sequence and type Command + 0 {zero} to see the Sequence Settings for the sequence. Report those settings, or take a screen shot of your sequence settings and post that here.

    What camera created these 30 fps files? Is it some kind of animation?  Regular video shot with an HDV camera at 30p has a frame rate of 29.97 fps.
