Using FCP 6.0.5
Video and two audio tracks have become un-linked. Not only in my current project but in ALL FCP projects. Have tried Command L several times - no go.
Also the "link" button top right corner of timeline does not appear.
It's an old FCP for sure but has worked perfectly until this problem today.
Any suggestions will be most welcome.
Thanks,
David

This may be from an update to your operating system. You are correct about this being an older version. Have you considered upgrading to a more recent version and then trying to re-link?

Also, were the original files moved outside of FCP, or were they on an external storage location? This can lead to the problem you describe.

Michael,
The operating system in my Mac Pro at time of purchase (2008) was OSX 10.5.2
Recently up-graded to OSX 10.6.8 so that a new memory card reader would communicate with my Mac.
Video source from memory card reader - footage shot HD 16 x 9 1080i AVCHD.
Did log and transfer from reader into FCP - no problem. All clips onto timeline and edited OK until video/audio link problem.
Would a brief phone chat be useful before going further?

You can request a phone call from your side. If you do that, you should receive a call back rather quickly.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
