    Can't change target video resolution!

    After transcoding a week's worth of footage with no trouble, my drive dies. Not a problem -- I turn it back on and start transcoding all over again...except I can't. I go to transcode a new folder of ama footage and I can't choose the correct resolution. I'm working in a 1080p/23.976 project, so I can click the transcode button without a problem, but when I go to choose the resolution, everything is greyed out. The default setting is DNxHD 115, so I can do that, but I can't choose anything else -- not AVC, not ProRes, not even DNxHD 36, which is the resolution that I've been transcoding in all weekend. It's forcing me to do DNxHD 115. I tried a few other ama files too, just to make sure it's not a corrupt folder, but I'm getting the same problem.

    Am I missing a setting or something?

    Can you see the new drive as a target drive?

    Did you try changing the target drive to see if your options increase?

    If Kevin's idea doesn't work, you might also try a new project and user settings. My first go-to troubleshooting for problems like this is creating a new project with new user settings, then opening the bin/sequence in this new project to see if it helps. A corrupted project or user settings sometimes show inconsistent behavior with many things working properly and it is quick to rule this out as a possible cause.
