SOFTWARE: FCP HD 4.5 on OS 10.3.3
HARDWARE: G5 dual 2 MHz 2 gig RAM
PAL project 25fps
BUG: Media manager sometimes makes mistakes copying files of a sequence that you are consolidating. It can relink to wrong or corrupt files and change the timeline to reflect the links to these wrong media files leaving gaps or throwing stuff out of sync.
SOLUTION: 1. Copy the sequence BEFORE you go into media manager 2. Always COPY, not MOVE media, so that you can go back to the old sequence and try again. This is good practice anyhow because you don’t want to lose anything because of power or drive failure.


SOFTWARE: AVID MC 7.2 on OS 8.5.1
HARDWARE: 9500 PowerPC 133MHz 384MB RAM
BUG: EXCEPTION NO_CHUNK error message prevents long sequence from playing because of corrupt media files.
SOLUTION:
Systematically find the corrupt media files, delete them and redigitise or relink.
See dealing with corrupt media in the AVID

SOFTWARE: FCP HD 4.5 on OS 10.3.3
HARDWARE: G5 dual 2 mHz 2 gig RAM
PAL project 25fps
BUG: You can't Import SDII (sound designer 2) files into a PAL project, no matter how you import into the project FCP brings it in as NTSC 29.97 and therefore it will always run out of sync.
SOLUTION: Get the file as AIFF or convert your SDII into AIFF using Quicktime-PRO or soundapp.

SOFTWARE: PRO-TOOLS 6.4 on OS 10.3.2
HARDWARE: G4 dual 1.42 mHz 1 gig RAM
Mixing to picture
BUG: using Disk Warrior files in folders were recovered. Files that resided on the base level of the drive disappeared.
SOLUTION: Always put things in folders. Apparently it makes it easier for Disk Warrior to find them.
I was working in ProTools when all the sudden my picture disappeared. The drive on which I had the movie had disappeared. On restarting the drive was no longer recognized by the finder. I ran Disk Warrior and rebuilt the drive, no problem. However... I discovered that only the files in folders were recovered. Files that resided on the base level of the drive disappeared So, the movies I exported from Final Cut that I had saved to the base level were now gone, but the movies in the Capture Scratches folder were o.k. Hope that saves you a headache someday.
