So...... I'm about 98% through a new project and I've rebooted to clear out some memory leak issues (another story completely!).
When coming back in to PP (CS5.5) I get this message:
There's really only one choice here - click Continue.
The problem is that now PPro has Media Pending on every clip of every sequence, although if I double click a clip I can see it in the source viewer. Hmmm....
So, I Googled it and found some suggestions (from Todd?) about clearing preferences (which I did) and resetting the media cache (I've even deleted all the files and emptied the trash).
I've done this a couple of times - even let it re-conform all the clips. No progress.
I've also tried creating a new project and importing these sequences. Voila! I can see the footage and continue - right up until I save. When I reload the (new) project the same happens all over again.
So, now what? I can't keep creating new projects for one time edits! What is the root cause and how do I fix it?
