Video preview missing in FCPX, only audio

4 months 3 weeks ago #656323 by ArtWagner
Even my past projects have no video showing up in the preview, only audio.  I have tried setting up a new library, new project and re-importing media.  No difference, I can hear the audio, but no video is showing in the preview window. 

Help please!

Try shutting down FCPX and resetting your cameras RAM during a restart.  

I want to say it's holding down (command + option) and (P+R) during restart of your computer.  When you hear the startup sound for the 2nd time, you can let go.

FYI, if the above doesn't clear it up, did you install any new transitions recently?  You might want to uninstall and reinstall.  Sometimes a bad install of a 3rd party transition can upset up FCPX.
