Did you try trashing prefs and repairing pemissions?
Ive trashed preferences using
Prefernce Manager Program (I dont know how to trash Final Cut Pro X preferences any other way)
Ive gone into
Highlighted Macintosh HD on left, then clicked REPAIR DISK PERMISSIONS
Let it do its magic for 8 minutes.
Restarted Final Cut Pro X but it hasnt made any change to my problem.
A few more updates
I read that if you have a file called DCIM, Movie, Final or Video, then FCPX can get confused and not work right (Seriously Apple !?!?!?!)
I have 1864 files with the word FINAL in it according to Finder.
There is no way I can change all of these to NOT have the word FINAL in them.
Although I DID create a wav, aif and mp3 with the word final in it recently, but Ive already used this wav in a FCPX movie and it worked ok.
Ive tried changing the names of SOME of the most recent files to not have the word FINAL in them, but FCPX still doesnt show up any events or projects (even thought they DO exist in their folders).
Files containing the w
MOVIE - Dont even go there
VIDEO - Again, dont even go there
I DID have an SD card connected to the Mac with a DCIM folder containing images, which I ejected. I also searched the system for DCIM and found nothing.
but it still doesnt show up any events or projects (even thought they DO exist in their folders).
Ive been going through Disk Utility, Verifying and Repairing Disk Permissions.
REPAIR DISK was greyed out though, so I repaired it with the OSX Disc. Still nothing.
I tried the hide/move events/projects files into new folder
as explained here
and it STILL doesnt work.
I even tried it with individual events projects, but nothing
Before trashing/reinstalling FCPX I decided to copy of all my events/projects files to an external hard drive (Keeping the same folder name on the external hard drive).
I then decided to start up FCPX with the external hard drive attached AND with also keeping the same events projects in the proper place on the internal hard drive.
FCPX very slowly said what it was reading on the splash screen as it started up the FCPX (When this hasn't been working properly it usually just whizzes through this)
And then Events showed up OK and in Project Library there were the same projects twice (one on Macintosh HD, one on Untitled - My external Hard Drive).
I could access all of it OK except I had one error message. (Which I clicked OK to).
I closed down/booted up FCPX a few more times and it was all still there OK.
Then I closed down FCPX, disconnected my External Hard Drive, rebooted the system, opened FCPX again (without External Hard Drive Connected) and it went back to not recognising anything again.
So I reconnected the External Hard Drive, started up FCPX again (I got a different error message, to which I clicked OK) but this time only three of four projects were there, but all 3 events were there. But they were all projects on the External Hard Drive NOT the internal Hard drive.
I restarted FCPX and all four projects then appeared from the External Hard Drive, but not from the internal hard drive.
So I then decided it was time to re-install FCPX as I said I would.
When I move FCPX App to the Trash The Final Cut Pro Event and Final Cut Pro Projects still stay where they are in Movies folder on the internal Hdrive.
Is this correct?
Anyway, so I trashed/reinstalled FCPX and it seemed to work properly again, but I thought I'd try a reboot to see if it was permanent. (Just to note it had also created a New Event with Date type Folder as per before)
Rebooted the system, FCPX wont recognise the events/projects again.
And its KEEPS creating new event folders in sequential order every time I start up FCPX
New Event 5-01-2012
New Event 5-01-2012 1
New Event 5-01-2012 2
New Event 5-01-2012 3
New Event 5-01-2012 4
I'm wondering if this has something to do with it?
I encounter the same problem as thread starter.
Everytime I boot up FCP X, there's always new event created and it can't load the old event on Macintosh HDD.
I am running Version 10.0.3
However, when I plug in my Seagate Firewire 800 external HDD and created and event there. After I rebooted my FCP X it still there and they can load all the event and project stored in the external HDD.
I got no choice but just to work using external HDD.
I still can't find any solution online..
Summary - FCP X only works with EXTERNAL HDD instead of internal HDD.
