I am facing a weird problem ...while working you sometimes zoom into a particular portion of the timeline to work.....mostly while undoing changes the whole view of the timeline goes haywire either it comes to start or end of the entire timeline and you again have to find the place where you were working .....any gusses why it happens on pressing command z mostly........ any solution please.....


(In fcp 7 there was an option in preferences of 'available media' by clicking which you can keep that timeline have some manners and stick at one place he he....) any option in fcpx ?

    Don't know whether this is a solution but it's always worth trying.


    Corrupt preferences can create a vast range of different symptoms, so whenever FCP X stops working properly in any way, trashing the preferences should be the first thing you do using this free app.




    Shut down FCP X, open PreferenceManager and in the window that appears:-


    1. Ensure that only  FCP X  is selected.


    2. Click Trash


    The job is done instantly and you can re-open FCP X.


    There is absolutely no danger in trashing preferences and you can do it as often as you like.


    The preferences are kept separately from FCP X and if there aren't any when FCP X opens it automatically creates new ones  .  .  .  instantly.

    This happens specially when I undo something...suddenly the timeline snaps to the beginning I tried to find on the net but did not find any solution....

    I have the same issue with undo snapping back to the beginning. It happens on my laptop, my iMac and on other clients' systems. It's amazing that a company sitting on billions of dollars of cash can't address these basic issues more quickly. We miss you, Steve!
