Issues with Final Cut

I’m not going to bore you with the details, but my project in Final Cut appears to have shat itself. That’s right, the honeymoon is over. Me and Final Cut? We were doing great. Until it decided to be a little bitch and corrupt a handful of my files. This wouldn’t be so big of a problem if I’d BACKED UP said files on the external hard drive I mentioned the other day, but oh well. I have never had this happen to me before and believed as long as I didn’t move or delete any files, we’d be set.

Well, the files are there. But they’re just not right. They don’t have the right file extension and instead end in gibberish. Okay, now I’m getting into the boring details. In any event, I was forced to attempt to use the rough cut as a stand-in for the scenes now experiencing file damage, which would have been fine except it doesn’t look right now.

This is what the entire series should look like:

This is what the scenes I had to re-add look like:

These may or may not look different on here but if you actually watch them on YouTube you’ll see what I’m talking about. I can’t catch a break. I’ll get this figured out one way or another, but I am not feeling the Final Cut love anymore and I thought you should know. Boooooo.
