Hi - has anyone else come across this problem and found a way to fix it?
I'm running FCP (6 with all updates online), on a MacBook 2 GHz intel core 2 duo, with Mac OS X (v 10.5.8).
My files are stored on 1 TB external HD.
I have returned to a documentary that I have not been editing for 3 months. when I left it, all was fine.
Now, it is unrendered, though after a good pause, the picture will come up in the canvas.
there are no unconnected files.
I have looked on several sites for advice and so far done the following:
deleted all render files and tried to re-render (this takes 4 hours, and ends with the same error message: no movie in file, with large sections (though not continuous) still orange.

I have checked permissions on the Hard drive - "ignore ownership" is ticked, and permissions to read write are granted to everyone

I have used disc utility to try and verify permissions. it says the disk appears to be okay, but the view permissions box is greyed out so I cannot look at that.

Can anyone advise me what else to do?

QUOTE Thanks
