I am in a very urgent situation.


Working on a feature length project and today after opening 2 sequences I was working on yesterday I had to relink media, because my scratch disks were not connected.


While relinking, final cut pop up says that some clips' media start & end has changed , continue with relinking or cancel. I had to continue work so I went on. Alas, now i am in front of a nightmare!


Both sequencies have been altered. In some areas the edits look the same but the content is different, in other areas cuts have been totaly removed.


please help.

Final Cut Pro 7, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    Did you capture these files yourself? If you used live capture now to import into FCP and then later changed the file names in the project, the clip names in your scratch disks will not change to what you've labeled. If you capture files in the future, it's always good workflow to log and capture, naming each clip then exactly what you want so you won't have to worry about reconnecting to the wrong files.


    This won't help you solve your problem quickly, but I would suggest that you close your current project. Make sure your scratch disks are connected, then open the last autosave file from yesterday. Reconnect the media files very carefully, making sure each one is the correct file. FCP notifies you that the clip media start and end has changed when you've not reconnected it to the right one.
