    Change Track Color

    Hey Gang,

    My waveforms weren't displaying for some reason so I reset my timeline to default settings. Good news is my waveforms are back, yay! But now video layer 1 is this ugly red color and it seems to be the only track that won't change when I go through the change track color menu. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks!!!

    Re: Change Track Color

    Does this maybe have something to do with the specific type of camera used? The red color doesn't show up on all my projects, just the current one I'm working with. One track (the one that won't change color) is P2 footage, second track is from a RED camera. That track will chnage to what ever color I want. Really weird. It's probably a setting burried in the menu but I can't figure it out.

    Red usually indicates that the associated media is offline. Muted colors indicates a mismatch in the frame rate. Check the clip colors in the timeline fast menu.

    This video is linked through AMA and is definately online. I checked the frame rates and both are at 29.97. So strange...
