    Markers disappearing when plugging in external drive. Help!

    I'm working as an AE on a doc requiring language translations. When I go to plug in translated footage into my editor's drive, he suddenly loses all of his markers in clips that are in totally different bins than the ones I imported. 

    We're working off of mirrored projects/drives. My process has been to plug in both our drives, drag the bin containing the new footage into his project, open his project, and consolidate the files to his drive. We've been doing this for weeks without any problems, but suddenly this week this problem has reoccured. Any tips on how to deal with this? Any help is greatly appreciated!

     

    Thanks, 

    Kevin

    Re: Markers disappearing when plugging in external drive. Help!

    Markers get wonky (that's a technical term) if the underlying clip changes length.  Are you both working at the same resolution and format with identical clips?  And what version(s) of MC are you using?

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    All the clips should be exactly the same. I'm running on 6.5.2, he's running 7.0.0

    I don't know if this is the issue or not, but 7.0 is backwards compatible with 6.5.3 only as I understand it. 7.0.2 is also out.

    You might have duplicated media (besides incompatible MC versions).  Try swapping media drives and projects between systems and see if you get different behavior.  Note: do this on a backup of your project(s)!
