Hey Justin,
On your toolbar, click view, click External Video, and make sure it's off.

Lou, can you please explain your advice? I am a little confused as to why you think this might be related? I have not encountered that before.

Justin, what version of FCP are you using? The first release of FCP 4 had issues with Canvas playback when the luminance check was on.

Check and make sure your Canvas window is set for fit-to-fill, the easiest way being to select the Canvas and hit Shift-Z. You should also read the How to Trouble Shoot article. Most members find just reading the article helps them resolve the really easy user-error stuff.

I am trying to reach back into my memory about other "black canvas" issues. Perhaps you could create a new sequence and see if the problem exists there. Anyhow, that is in the trouble shooting section.

I will answer that question if you tell us whether you have resolved the first issue and how.
