I updated to 10.0.6, and many of my events and projects show missing files.  When I try to re-link the files I get the "Files not compatable" window. Help?Screen shot 2012-10-29 at 7.32.24 AM.png

    The image didn't link.

    I don't know why you don't see the image, I do on your reply.  Anyway, I copied it here:

     

    35 name matches were found, but 35 files are not compatible.

    Relinked files must have the same media type, same frame rate, and similar audio channels as the original files, and must be long enough to cover all the clips that reference the files.

    Select a single item at a time to get information about why it is not compatible. 

     

    OKAY so I did that and here is the response:

     

    The original file didn't have audio, but the new file does.

    Relinked files must have the same media type, same frame rate, and similar audio channels as the original files, and must be long enough to cover all the clips that reference the files.

     

    On another event, the missing files are .mp4, and all I apparently have are the .mov files which don't match.  Everything was fine until the update to 10.0.6

    I'm having the same problem...searching for an answer!

    I never found an answer.  That was a while ago, but I think I re-imported files.  I have not updated since then though!  I am getting ready to update to 10.0.8 so I hope to do it right this time.

    Before you update, take a look at this.

     

    Good luck,

    Thank you! I am going from .6 to .8, and I  just read that you do not have to do any of the updates in between.  Now to find a thread concerning the importing of clips changing names, or actually, the information about the clip time/date etc, shows up in FCPX instead of the original clip name.
