    OK, some of my video files for a Final Cut project have magically turned into "Unix executable files"

    Has anyone experienced this or does anyone have any idea if they are just lost? The size of the files has not changed, but I'd hate to just lose the video. Even having to remake the project would be better than losing the footage.

    Try changing the extension the whatever the others are. If that doesn't work, try changing the "Open With" program in the file's Get Info window.

    Or go to the terminal, cd to the directory they are in (i.e. cd ~/Movies) and change permissions so you have read/write, your group has read/write, and everyone else read (chmod 664 <filename>).
