    how do i refresh a finder window view? i've been rendering
    files out of final cut and sometimes they don't show up in
    the finder window for the directory i've put them in. if i go
    back to final cut and test by starting a re-export, i can see
    the file in that view and the dialog will prompt me to ok an
    overwrite of the file. at that point i cancel but still can't see
    the file in the finder. windows has 'view--->refresh' as an
    option and that usually clears things up when something like
    this occurs under that os. how do i refresh the view in osx
    so these files will become visible? (btw, they also do show
    up using the terminal.)

    thanks,
    BabaG

    I think forcing Finder to quit and restart may be overkill in this instance.

    It's not overkill in Tiger and even more so over NFS.

    Relaunching Finder stops all Finder actions: copying files via Drag & Drop, etc.

    I'd just use the Refresh app posted above.
