Firstly if you do get this error message export (share) your work out onto another hard drive so you do not lose the work up till this error message…DO NOT CHOOSE QUIT BEFORE EXPORTING !
How am I to take this program seriously when it throws up crap like this, then trawling the internet get no answer to my problem other than a lot more users are experiencing this error message. Apple have shafted us big time with this program, they brought it to market long before it was ready and from updating fairly regularly… tweeking out the bugs… we are lefty hanging with a very buggy NLE that once again is not fit for purpose.
If any of you have seen this and fixed it I would appreciate a reply other than the following…
It seems to be a reoccuring issue for many users and the error is pretty bland and unhelpful.
Some seem to have targeted it as an issue with project corruption.
Another got it fixed by: “It turned out I had duplicates of all my events in the events folder. When I moved the dupes to a new junk folder, everything worked. I compared them all before deleting the dupes.”
Some get the message randomly and it doesn’t come back in same project.
FCPX needs more work 🙁
HDW: I was sent a link from AARON BERARDI who also came across this problem and his advice worked for me, thanks Aaron. Note : To make this change you will have to unlock the padlock on the right this will ask you for your password. Fortunately this bought me enough time to finnish editing my JVC HM600 review but I am now back to square one !
UPDATE : As reported by Aaron I had a look at the FC Projects file and removed one duplicate Backup file (Final Cut Projects/YourProjectName/Backups) and everyone worked again, I only hope with the new 10.0.6 this bug has been fixed.
