I am currently editing a feature length film shot on RED. I have about 9,000 clips in the project. Everytime I startup premiere and open the project many of the R3D files show up as offline that where online when previously open. This happens again and again. Here is what I have tried:
- I cleaned out the media cache folder
- Open the project and allowed permiere to reconform all the files
- Tired checking on and off the create XMP checkbox
Nothing has helped. Sometimes, after I reimport the R3D I have to click out of the program then back into it again before Premiere will build the .cfa file. Any ideas on how to get the file links to stay connected? Thanks.
For anyone who may stumble onto this, the fix was to upgrade my drive connection to esata. I was using fw800, and apparently this was not allowing Premiree to access the files fast enough, so it was randomly marking files as offline.
Thank you for reporting. That info will likely help others.
I use FW-800's, and have not experienced any issues, BUT I am on a PC, and my Projects are NOT RED, but SD, so probably really big differences there.
Appreciated, and glad that you got the media back On-line.
