I'm working in final cut pro X. In the middle of a project, the video portion of the timeline greyed out. The audio still plays. The titles play (now over a black background) How do restore the video?

Please go to the Apple logo on the upper left of the screen, go to About This Mac (DO NOT Select More Info), and tell me the Version (under Mac OS X), the Processor and the Memory, it is all right there.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Sorry. I've already deleted the video from the timeline and am starting over, so I won't need your help.


Thank you.
