Offline Files at Launch

Symptom #1: Project’s Clips Are Offline and Unavailable

“I launched a project with my scratch disk missing and accidentally saved it. Now that the scratch disk is available again, how do I relink?”

Background

FCP uses both project files (metadata) and QuickTime movies (media) to make video editing possible. Although the two are normally linked from the moment they are introduced by capture or import into the project, that linkage is as temporary as you want it to be. As we saw in the first section of this book, you can make project clips offline from within FCP itself. And of course, launching a project with missing scratch disk volumes will make the media unavailable to the project and render its clips offline.
