Fusion nodes in DR suddenly gone

I'm more than a little confused. I have been working on a project that included 6 small clips and about 30 mask- and merge nodes. The mask nodes contained expressions, one of the merge nodes was used for control. (You can have a look at:
to see what I was working on.)

I have been fiddling about with this project for the last couple of days. Did regular saves and I had automated backups enabled.

Today Fusion was somewhat unstable. Sometimes it would not show the output on the monitor. Nothing crazy. So, I restarted DR and went back into the project to find that all nodes were gone. Every clip only contained MediIn and MediaOut.

But I had my backups! 4 of them, so I was a lucky guy. Wrong! In all the backups the Fusion node information was missing.

This led me to believe that it is not a corrupt project (all clips and timelines are still there), but the link to the Fusion information is severed or the Fusion information itself is gone.

Or....I'm missing some knowledge here and this can be fixed by some obscure option, or worse: I screwed up.

I'm running since yesterday, so maybe this new version broke something. I'm using a local database, not PostgreSQL.

I'm not to worried about my work that needs to be re-done, but I think we should be aware if there is a potential issue before one of us looses much more.

Any guesses?

If you goto the Fusion page, click the Clips button at the top, and then click on each of the clips that show at the bottom, do you not see any comps you were working on? How did you create the comps, did you right-click on video clips and choose Open In Fusion Page, add Fusion comps from the Effects Library, add Adjustment Clips, or create Fusion Clips?

I understand your question, but I've already checked every possibility. It was working fine for a couple of days before it failed.

I picked one of the clips when I was working in Fusion and pulled the others in from the media panel.

After the last restart of DR all the nodes were gone. I thought the same as you: I'm looking at the wrong clip, but that wasn't the case. What really bugs me is that the backups have the same issue which means, in my opinion, that the Fusion information is gone.

I can start over again that's not the problem, but I'm worried if this is a problem that has been introduced in the latest version.
