I have rendered all my clips in color. I have checked very carefully to make sure everyone of them says completed and has the green label.

So when I send them back to FCp it says not all of my clips have been rendered. This is not so , when I created the render queue , I hit " add all".

No suprise when I sent the project to FCp , the video doesnt have the corrections. Any help is much appreciated.

    Usually problems with Color can be traced to improper material being sent from FCP.


    Your material should be in ProRes format in FCP (i.e. no AVCHD, H.264, or other non-I frame format)


    There should be NO retiming, effects or other trickery on the clips within FCP


    There should be NO overlays, transitions, fades, etc,


    The material should all be the same standard Time Base.


    If any of the clips violate these rules, trouble may occur.

    Did you change names from the original clips, use slo-mo on clips, or send anything other than plain vanilla ProRes to Color?


    If everything is as it should be, you could always go to the folder where the COLOR render files reside and import them manually.

    ... they were fine when they were displayed in the directory, color corrections all there. When I reimported them back into FCp , the color correction was gone.


    How were you displaying them "in the directory"?


    It is not possible for a rendered file to "lose" the rendering when imported into FCP. Please describe your import process and how you are viewing them in FCP.
