Do you have 'autosave vault' turned on, can you go back and try to open an earlier version of your project?

Open one of the converted 5D clips in QT and then open the 'Movie Inspector'. What information is listed, please post?

There is this 'Repair Kit', but it is expensive.


You can see if this helps.

yeah that is expensive...i dont mind deleting the sequence and starting from scratch if i know what went wrong so as not to repeat...is fcp incompatible with proress codecs or something

FCP works very well with ProRes.

As you started off with 7D video, it is possible that it was not converted properly in the transcode to ProRes.

I have converted a lot of Canon DSLR video to ProRes and never had a problem, but then again, I used Compressor and not MPEG Streamclip.

could you tell me your workflow... (i have 7d but i assume it follows the same principle)

thanks a lot
