Media Offline shown in Project Manager

PostThu Oct 12, 2017 2:16 pm

Hi there,
I have tried to read as many post as I can on this but haven't yet found the cause.

If a project has no render cache or optimised media, I get a scrubbable preview image in the Project Manager. If it does have a render cache or optimised media I get a 'Media Offline' warning instead. This goes away if I delete all caches for the project.

The database and cache folder are on the internal SSD, the media files are on an external HDD. The external HDD causes no other media offline issues. And when I open a project stamped as Media Offline, everything is online.

Any advice appreciated.

I have the same/similar issue. I also get the Offline red warning in the preview window when in Edit mode. The only difference is that I get the audio when playing it in the preview or timeline viewer, but no visual.

I imagine the responses would be inclined to the fact we're both using macbook pros and not using specifically built workhorse workstations for the video editing.
