I captured a video project using Final Cut X, the clips say missing proxy.  I checked and the media is in my hard drive.  What do I need to do?

 

Thank you,

 

Sara

    Control-click on the affected clips, select "Transcode Media..." and tick the proxy media box.

    Thank you Luis.  Same case as Sara but for me i was able to transcode about two hours of captured footage in less than 20 minutes.  Just wish i understood why despite checking the proxy box in the prefrences, only some tapes do it automaticcly and others I have to follow this extra step.  I guess thats FCPX

    Just went through this problem and hit myself on the head when I realized. For anyone else, if you don't want to create proxy media or it's taking too long to transcode, if you go under FCPX Preferences switch from 'Use Proxy Media' to 'Use Original or Optimized Media' you should be able to work from your original footage.
