Tip #113: Remove a Yellow Alert – Option 2
Sometimes, alerts happen because the FCP X database doesn’t update.
If you are getting a yellow alert in FCP X, it may be because the FCP X database doesn’t seem to update very quickly when you make a change to an external file, such as a motion graphics or VFX file.
If you know you just updated such a file here’s a quick workaround:
- Select everything in the timeline (shortcut: Cmd + A)
- Copy it to the Clipboard (shortcut: Cmd + C)
- Then click anywhere in the timeline to deselect everything.
Your yellow alert should disappear.
