Trouble sending FCP sequence to Color, HELP!!!

I have to deliver a project in the next 36 hours and I can't seem to get my FCP sequence into Color.

We shot on Canon 5D and transcoded to Apple ProRes 422 HQ using MPEG Streamclip.

I click on "send" and then "Color", name the project file for Color, progress bars fill, and it appears my sequence has been sent over... except when I get to color there's nothing there. NOTHING.

I know there isn't any timecode on these files, could that be the problem? What else am I overlooking???

I don't know what the problem you're having might be caused by, but as a last resort you could render your entire project from FCP as a self-contained movie, then open the self-contained movie directly in Color (not by sending it from FCP), use the split tool in Color to divide the self-contained movie into clips for color correction, perform your color corrections, render out the corrected movie from Color, open the rendered movie in your original FCP project and put it on the top video track of that project so it is the only visible track (or disable all other tracks), and then export color corrected movie together with the audio track from the FCP project (which should and hopefully will be in sync).

This is obviously not an ideal workflow, but it may enable you to complete your project on time if all else fails.

I Would suspect the error is in fcp ... I would suggest that you trash your preferences file ... Restart and try to send the file again.

Thanks guys, I actually just ended up doing the three way color correction in Final Cut because I didn't have time to dance around all these hoops. Good lord it's frustrating when these programs don't work for no good reason!
