Waveform Not Displaying

The audio waveform is not displaying on the timeline. I have it turned on with optapplew. I dumped all my waveform cache. It even seems like the source video clips do not have it.
How can I tell FCP to redraw all waveform? OR what is the fix?

Hi Andy,
it's a slow day at work, the Avid is crashing constantly so we have to shut off the RAID, and what else is there to do for me, lonely in my editing suite, with all the apps but no footage.....
So there you have it. I'm frustrated. All there is to it.
Thanks though, at least someone thinks I'm doing a good job.

  • Waveforms not displaying on most tracks

    On some projects, the waveforms are displaying as flat or nearly flat lines on most tracks.  As it happens, the tracks I can't edit are the ones I need to edit.  They are all real instrument tracks recorded through a USB - guitar interface.  When I go to flex time I see flex lines but no waves.  Does anyone have any idea what to do about this?

    It may be the site you are trying to access is not rendering the CAPTCHA properly.  This might be because of poor coding or slow response from the site.  Try the refresh arrow alongside, or if that does not work, tap on the sound icon: that is usually pronounced slow enough to be able to understand.

  • Waveform not displaying full

    My waveforms on the timeline are not generating properly, I have missing bits of a waveform in 1 file, it will show part of it but not say the end, THe file is fully rendered, no weird format or different clips none of that a single clip will just show nothing for part of the waveform.  The cure is to zoom into that section fully all the way to the highest zoom then shift z out and it will then show some times but you have to play with it to make it show? why?

  • CC 2014 not displaying waveforms on timeline or viewer

    Having reluctantly upgraded to PP CC 2014 I am noticing that the waveforms of .R3D files do not display properly in the timeline or the viewer. Sometimes the waveforms are displayed correctly, sometimes not. There is inconsistency even within the same timeline.
    Is there a new setting that needs to be enabled here or is this another one of those dreadful Adobe bugs we're getting so used to?

  • Audio waveform will not display

    I just bought a new iMac and have opened a previous FCE4 file with it. The sequence will not display the audio waveform at all... it used to do fine displaying the waveform on my Powerbook G4. I've toggled the preferences to display audio waveform globally and also for the individual sequence, to no avail. The audio does play back, just no waveform display.
    Any help appreciated.
    Message was edited by: Jeff Morgan1

    First, make sure the track settings aren't too low. If the track height is too small the waveforms won't show. If that's OK then quit the application and trash the waveform cache. If you don't know where that is look in your FCE system settings. It'll be at the bottom of the first panel.

  • Audio Waveforms (On Certain Clips Only) Not Displaying

    Long time forum-lurker, first time poster.
    Here's the situation: The nighttime assistant editor created a sequence of B-roll clips for an editor. On both the editor's and the assistant editor's computer, the audio waveforms for these clips are not displaying correctly. Specifically, the symptoms (on both computers) are:
    - Waveforms do not appear in timeline unless zoomed in to maximum or second-to-maximum zoom. When zoomed out farther than that, the "X"es appear.
    - When viewing the clip in the viewer's audio tab, either by double-clicking the sequence clip or match-framing from the sequence, the waveforms do not appear at all until I zoom in to near maximum level. When zooming out after that, the remnants of the zoomed-in waveforms remain on the screen.
    - The waveforms of other clips display correctly.
    I have tried deleting the waveform cache on both computers, changing the location of the waveform cache and restarting, and deleting the preferences on the editor's computer. I have not tried recreating the sequence from the original clips because the daytime assistant editor has more sequences to create and needs to use her computer.
    If anyone can help me, that would be great.
    Here are the specs:
    Assistant Editor's Computer: eMac running Final Cut Pro 5.0.1 and Mac OS 10.4.something (I haven't gotten a chance to run software update).
    Editor's Computer: Dual Processor Power Mac G5 running Final Cut Pro 5.0.4 and Mac OS 10.4.8.
    Both computers are sharing the same media which is located on our SAN. The Editor's computer (along with two other G5-based editing systems) is connected via FibreChannel. The Assistant Editor's computer (along with a whole bunch of other computers) is connected through our server, which serves the SAN drives as network volumes. Assistant editors create sequences on the eMac and upload the project file to the server, where they are available for the editors to download.
    Power Mac G5 and eMac   Mac OS X (10.4)   SAN: Xserve RAID, CommandSoft FibreJet (not Xsan). Server: Xserve (Intel model)

    Don't know what's going on, but tell us the format of
    the audio.
    It's the audio track from a video clip. All video on this project is DV NTSC. The audio is 48.0 Khz, 16 bit, 2 mono channels.
    Also, try copying
    one audio clip to a local drive and see if the
    problem persists.
    Copied one of the offending clips onto the desktop. Dragged it into the project. Opened it in the viewer and hit the Audio tab. Whaddya know, the waveform appeared.
    I cut a chunk of it into the sequence that is full of clips whose waveforms don't work and turned on "show audio waveforms". Waited for a long time and I still just got the Xes unless I zoomed in really close to the new sequence clip.
    But then I cut a chunk of the newly copied clip into a brand new sequence, turned on audio waveforms in the timeline, and they showed up.
    I don't know if any of this will help to solve my problem, but hopefully it will give someone an idea. I've got an editor who says he's used to editing from waveforms and needs the ability to see them. (Unfortunately, copying media to local drives is not a viable workaround. The media must stay on the SAN.)

  • Why does AI Read(Async​hronous).v​i cause the waveform chart to not display any history ?

    I trying to create a strip chart for 16 channels that will require displaying 10-20 minutes of data.It also starts a separate vi to set gains and offsets while displaying the data. Using AI Read.vi uses 100% of the CPU so the second vi does not run. But using AI Read (async).vi allows the second vi to run, but causes the waveform chart to not display the history? I'm using LabView version 6.0.2.

    Hi Waynes World,
    I have a couple of questions that may help us solve this issue...
    1) If you are modifying one of our example programs, which one did you start with?
    2) What kind of analog input are you doing? Buffered? Finite or continuous?
    3) Have you tried increasing the buffer size of the strip chart? This will allow the chart to store more data in it.
    4) When you use the Async VI, and when you are using the other, can you describe how the strip chart is showing the data... does the data in the chart keep growing and growing... or does it clear itself and start over when the pine reaches the end?
    I think this issue is rooted in how the buffer is being used with the two different AI Reads and how it returns data to the chart.
    On a side note, have you considered upgrading to a newer version of LabVIEW? Our latest versions of LabVIEW come with many new features and it is signifigantly easier to use.

  • Why does Modelsim not display some signals?

    I use Xilinx ISE to run a small VHDL file. From Xilinx ISE goes to Modelsim in behaviour simulation (use the default do {hcic_tb.fdo} command), I find that thw waveform window does not display the following two signals:
      SIGNAL filter_out_addr                  : std_logic; -- boolean  
      SIGNAL filter_out_done                  : std_logic; -- boolean
    while   SIGNAL filter_out_rdenb                 : std_logic; -- boolean
    shows in the waveform window. What is the reason for display or not?
    ............ testbench file:
    SIGNAL filter_out_rdenb                 : std_logic; -- boolean  
    SIGNAL filter_out_addr                  : std_logic; -- boolean  
    SIGNAL filter_out_done                  : std_logic; -- boolean
    la: filter_out_rdenb <= ce_out;
      filter_out_procedure (    
       clk       => clk,    
       reset     => reset,    
       rdenb     => filter_out_rdenb,    
       addr      => filter_out_addr,    
       done      => filter_out_done);

    It seems these two signals will display after I turn off optimization to vsim:
    My new question is that in testbench it is acceptable to test a point with signal? Why are they get optimized?  I want to ensure my future test signal is displayed without optimization turned off. Is it possible?

  • Strange scenario,Oracle can not display the data in mysql correctly

    I use Heterogeneous Service+ODBC to achieve "oracle access mysql"(any other method?),and now i find Oracle can not display the data in mysql correctly:
    mysql> create table tst(id int,name varchar(10));
    Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
    mysql> insert into tst values(1,'a');
    Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
    mysql> select * from tst;
    | id | name |
    | 1 | a |
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)
    mysql> show create table tst\G
    *************************** 1. row ***************************
    Table: tst
    Create Table: CREATE TABLE `tst` (
    `id` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
    `name` varchar(10) DEFAULT NULL
    1 row in set (0.00 sec)
    -------------oracle ------------------
    SQL> select count(*) from "tst"@mysql;
    SQL> select * from "tst"@mysql;
    SQL> desc "tst"@mysql;
    Name Null? Type
    id NUMBER(10)

    You can make the following query on the result page:
    "select * from the_table where movietitle = ? and cinema = ?"
    then you set movietitle and cinema to those which the user selected. If the resultset contains more than 0 rows, that means the movie is available.
    Below is the sample code, it assumes you have a connection to the database:
    PreparedStatement stat = myConnection.prepareStatement("select * from the_table where movietitle = ? and cinema = ?");
    stat.setString(1, usersMovieTitleSelection);
    stat.setString(2, usersCinemaSelection);
    ResultSet res = stat.executeQuery();
    if (res.next()) {
    out.print("The movie is available");
    } else {
    out.print("The movie is not available");
    }Now just add that to your JSP page. Enjoy ! =)

  • Floating fields and fragment subforms in Outlook 2007 do not display correctly

    I'm using LCES Forms 8.0 Update 1 to render a non-interactive HTML forms using dynamic content (customer info). The email appears ok in clients except in Outlook 2007.
    The Floating text and Text Fields appear multiple times on the form (scattered around their placement point on the form) and the subform fragments are appearing with borders surrounding them.
    I have heard that there are issues with Outlook 2007 not displaying HTML correctly. Is there a way to setup the Text Fields/Subforms in Designer so they display correctly in Outlook 2007?

    Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.
    See "Basic Troubleshooting: Make a new profile":
    There may be extensions and plugins installed by default in a new profile, so check that in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions & Plugins" in case there are still problems.
    If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from the old profile to that new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.

  • Umlauts are not displayed correctly in different programs

    I live in germany, but my locale is set to "en_US.UTF8" because I like to have everything in english.
    I do not have any problems with umlauts on the machine, but when I connect with sFTP oder Samba to it, the umlauts in files are not displayed correctly.
    Look at this example
    The upper word is how it looks in "ssh putty" (=locally on the machine), the bottom one is from "filezilla" (from my windows host)
    This is my locale
    When I create a file "asd_aöü" locally on the machine (with the help of ssh - putty), it looks fine, but when I connect by samba or filezilla again the umlauts are not displayed correctly.
    Do you understand my problem? What can I do?

    Did you check the locale settings on your Windows machine?

  • Pictures not displaying in non-thumbnail sizes

    One of my clients has an iMac G5 running 10.4.11 and iPhoto 5.0.4. He's got about 3200 pictures in his iPhoto library which is about 12GB in size (they are all very large pictures). He's been using iPhoto without problem for years then suddenly he noticed that some pictures do not display in a slideshow. Out of the 3200 pictures he's narrowed it down so far to a few dozen pictures throughout his library. When we view the roll or the album with the pictures listed as thumbnails, we can see the picture just fine, but when we do anything that involves viewing at non-thumbnail size, such as double clicking on it or viewing in a slideshow it displays nothing. Slideshow just shows all black and double clicking on the thumb shows white with a spinning gear that never stops spinning. I rebuilt his library and that did not fix it. I repaired permissions, trashed iPhoto preferences, deleted tmp & cache files from his computer, I even zapped the PRAM out of desperation and nothing made any difference at all. One weird thing is that when it is siting at the white screen with spinning gear, if we resize the window smaller then resize it bigger, the picture will display properly but only for that time. It still will not display in slideshows.
    I tried exporting one of the troublesome pictures out of iPhoto to his desktop, delete the pic from iPhoto, then try re-importing it again. This time when we try to import it, iPhoto gives an error that the file couldn't be imported because it may be an unrecognized file type or may not contain valid data. I can open the pic on his desktop using Preview and Photoshop with no problems at all.
    Why am I posting this in the iPhoto '08 forum? well I copied the file to my MacBook Pro running 10.5.6 and iPhoto '08 and it almost does the same thing. I am able to import the file into iPhoto '08 and I can see the thumbnail but when I double click it, instead of a white screen with the spinning gear, i get a black screen and nothing else. I tried the trick of resizing the window and as I'm resizing, I do see a blocky image but as soon as I stop resizing the image goes black.
    I can open the file in any program on multiple computers: Photoshop, Preview, GraphicConverter, ColorSync Util, Safari, Firefox, etc. iPhoto version 5 and '08 (the only versions I have handy) refuse to work with the file. I've even edited the picture in photoshop by changing the resolution by just a few pixels and slightly tighter jpg compression but iPhoto still refuses to play nice with it.
    I have exhausted all options other than reinstalling the OS, but other posts I've read similar to this say that never fixes it. I am at a loss. What is wrong with iPhoto that it refuses to play nicely with pictures that work everywhere else in the world?
    I forgot to add that in Console there are several instances of iPhoto errors:
    "have info and image but no ciimage" and “have info and image but no ref”

    Try opening the file in one of the other applications that can use it and save as a new file and see if that new file is compatible with iPhoto. Or you might try this Automator workflow, Convert to JPG and Embed sRGB profile, on one and see if the resulting file will work. If so you can batch change all of them. It replaces the file you run it on so be sure to run it on a copy just to be safe. You can download it from Toad's Cellar or download it immediately with this link: Convert to JPG and Embed sRGB profile.zip.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier versions) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. There are versions that are compatible with iPhoto 5, 6, 7 and 8 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. Just put the application in the Dock and click on it whenever you want to backup the dB file. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.
    NOTE: iPhoto 8's new option in it's rebuild library window, "Rebuild the iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup" may make this tip obsolete. We'll know when users have occasion to use it and see if that's the case.

  • Images not displaying at their normal size, and not all keywords displaying, why?

    Not sure what's going on inside Adobe Bridge CC 2014.1, but why is it that my images are not displaying at full size. Bridge says they're displaying at 100% but I know that's not the case, because when I open the same images in Mac OS Preview (OS 10.10.1 Yosemite) at 100% they're much bigger. Is there a viewing preference setting I'm missing?
    Also, I use Bridge and Photoshop on two mac pro desktops: one at my office and one at home.
    At work, I created more than 30 keywords in Bridge for several hundred images that reside on my external thunderbolt hard drive. But when I take that hard drive home and connected it to my home mac and then open Bridge, only a handful of keywords appear. I don't see the full list of keywords that I created at work. But in Bridge, I didn't see any option to save or export keywords as a file.
    Although the image metadata does appear, because whatever keyword i assigned to an image at work does display on the home mac, I just don't see the entire keyword list.
    Can or should Bridge therefore only be used on one computer? Is it not possible to transfer the entire Bridge keyword list from one mac to another?
    Thanks in advance for any help feedback with this.

    Hi Zenos,
    I've discovered what is causing the problem, but I still need a way to fix it, if possible.
    The cause of the problem is that in Windows 7 Control Panel > Display I have set the size of "text and other items" to 150% (otherwise everything is much too small too read on my screen's recommended resolution of 1920×1080).
    I discovered that Irfan Viewer was also displaying at the incorrect resolution, but I managed to solve that problem by right-clicking on the IrfanView.exe icon and following Properties > Compatibility and selecting "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings".
    I tried the same procedure with Thunderbird, but it made no difference. It is still displaying at the incorrect resolution.
    Any suggestions?

  • Adobe Bridge CS3 - does not display thumbnails for Canon 40D or 50D RAW files

    I wanted to use Bridge to view my Canon EOS 50D RAW files and it does not display the thumbnails, just icons. I checked my 40D cr2 files and saw same thing.
    I have purged the cache and rest the cache preferences and it has not helped. I would like to be abl eto view the thumbnails of the RAW files via Bridge if possible. Jpg files and Tif files can be viewed without any issues.
    Am using Bridge version and Pshop CS3 10.0.1

    I have the exact same problem. I can view my RAW file thumbnails (which are .ARW files from my Sony A200 camera) in the Finder and in other applications, such as Preview, but not in Adobe Bridge CS3. I know that I did try purging the cache at one point to see if that would fix it, but then I didn't know what to do after that. Before I purged the cache, I was able to view RAW thumbnails in Bridge, but then they would not increase in size when I tried using the slider (at the bottom right of the Bridge window)
