I know this has been covered before, but I've searched and cannot find the = answer. I have a bunch of clips that were captured with iMovie and I'd lik= e to use them in FCP. When I import them I have to render them or the audi= o won't play. What is the workaround? I thought it was the sequence settin= g in FCP, but I can't seem to get it to work. Jack [View]

Hey Jack, As far as I know, the clips have to be rendered in FCP - that's the workaround. I could be wrong though. -- Verdi <URL: http://michaelverdi.com/ > <URL: http://freevlog.org/ > <URL: http://node101.org/ > On Oct 16, 2005, at 10:30 PM, Jack Nelson wrote: > I know this has been covered before, but I've searched and cannot > find the answer.

Thanks Michael. I've tried that= and then every time I move a clip it has to be rendered again. I guess I = could export the clips and then import them again, but I've decided to wre= stle with iMovie instead. There will be only a couple of L-edits, so it wil= l be faster than exporting and importing a couple of hours of clips. I go= t into this mess because I'm re-editing a film for a friend. She works for = a university here and they have an in-house video group. She's making a fi= lm about the traditional practices of growing corn here in Mexico. She eit= her got a bad batch of tapes or her camera is flukey. The inhouse video pe= ople just slapped it together, dropped frames and all. She asked me if I c= ould fix it. Well, I spent a whole day trying to import it. I tried every= thing and here's what I came up with: iMovie is less fussy about mporting= than FCP.
