For some reason the preview screen just decided to black recently and its so frustating. I know this is an extremely common problem and have therefore researched for possible solutions, however none of them seem to be a definite solution.
-Made sure video track is not on mute
-Unticked "closee media files when not the active application"
-Changed all clips to "disable resample"
-Unticked "scale video to fit preview window"
-Remade the project in case the old one was just corrupted
But nothing seems to work. The weird thing is that some of this suggested solutions worked only for a few seconds and then the preview screen turned black again.
I dont know what I'm doing wrong this time that I haven't in older projects, the only considerable difference is that in this case, I'm getting my video clips from several different folder locations.
