I'm having a bad week.


When the playhead on the FCP timeline is paused on a scene

the picture in the canvas is orange.

When I hit the spacebar and play the program it plays back fine.

When I export from compressor or QT conversion

I get orange scene's mixed with normal playback. (See pic below)

I must have a corrupted scene/file somewhere?

I wonder if a complete re-install of FCP would help.


Also installed snow leopard and and get the dvmatte pro watermark(below the orange pic)

where I used it in my program.


Oh yea, my P2 footage won't load see discussion if you can help.

    First off...your Canvas is set to view ALPHA + need to turn that off. In the center of the canvas there are three drop down menu on the one on the right, the one that looks like a box.  Select RGB, and not RGB+Alpha.  Then it should look normal.


    As for the DV Matte Pro watermark...that will go away when you register the software.

    You can download and use the app all day, you'll still get that watermark. You'll need to enter a REGISTRATION NUMBER...a serial order make that go away. You get that when you buy the product.  But it is a very old product, and the company might be out of business, or no longer supporting that product, as it is only made for FCP Legacy, and that has been discontinued for over 2 years now.


    I have DV Matte Blast, also from DV Garage.  I have a SN for it in order to disable the watermark.

    hmm.  I have DV Matte Pro also.  I looked up email records and couldn't find any serial number.  Found the installer and ran it on my new mountain lion startup drive and used it in fcp7 without any issues.  Doesn't seem to need a serial number as far as I can tell.  Are you sure this isn't a demo version?


    Does the email with the download info from them have a receipt for payment?  Mine does.


    And I upgraded from an earlier version in 2011 (not that long ago).
