Remove "missing" video from session??
 
I have a session that used to have a video, but no longer does.

I get a "missing video" dialog every time I open the session.

I can't find the video clip in my clips bin. Missing AUDIO shows up in italics, but no sign of video clips in the bin.

"Show" video doesn't exist in the clip dropdown.

How do I get rid of this freaking video so it stops asking for it?

I assume NO but have to ask just in case .. do you still have a video track in the session ?? a hidden one maybe ?? if so delete that track .. you could Import Session Data to a new Bank Session but that would be last resort ..

if none of this is relevant please just disregard ..

cheers john

That's something I've experienced too, you can't treat video files the same way as audio files.
For example if I accidentally delete a video file from the hard drive that's been used in a session, Pro Tools will ask for it even if I delete the empty video track and clean the pool or whatever the window on the right side is called. I'm pretty sure it's my lack of understanding rather than a problem with the software so I'm subscribing to this thread to see if someone knows the solution.

Maybe have a look into the Workspace Browser, under the sessions video files folder. And delete it there.

You can find the filename in the clip bin. The name will be italic and gray. Select it then either shift+cmd+B or click the arrow in the clip bin top right corner and select clear. This will remove the reference to the video file from the session. Same goes for missing audio files that are no longer needed.

Not that easy, at least in my case.

--update--I still have to check what Joachim said, will get back as soon as I find out if it works or not.

View the clip bin by "select unused" then delete and remove from session and disk.

I am actually getting this behaviour too, same as Kirkbross.

The video file is not in the Clip Bin, and has been removed from the session (not hidden, the track was deleted from the session and the clip deleted from the Clip Bin)

I still get the error message on startup that 1 Video File is missing, and then a couple of minutes later the Task Manager popup saying that it can't be located.

Searching in the Workspace shows that there is no video file in the 'video files' folder.

I believe that this 'bug' is created when a new session is created using 'save as' and then the video file from the original session is deleted. The session retains some sort of link to the video file even though it's been removed from the session properly.

If the bin menu "show" doesn't list "Video" try using the hotkey ctrl/cmd+shift+3 and check if the file appears. If the clip bin has many files try and "Sort by" "Clip Type" to make it easier for yourself.
As has already been mentioned check the workspace browser video folder and if there is still no dice, maybe try and delete the "WaveCache.wfm" file in the session folder before opening the session in pro tools.

I've been asking for this for years:

Your video is most likely part of a clip-group and has become offline. It's impossible to find or remove it unless you find and ungroup the clip-group that contains that clip. AT the moment there is no function in PT that will show you those clips. They will forever remain offline and "invisible" unless you find that parent group. Even more difficult to impossible to find if it's a group that's inside a group.

Frank.
