General Error
on Dec 9, 2009 at 4:15:09 pm

The students will be working in FCP and most of the time a "general error" will appear and I click ok and a red box appears and says close window. After closing window the canvas and timeline disappear and the project is lost and u have to start over. It might happen after 2 clips or it might take 10 clips. We are using the FLIP HD. Every clip that we insert we have to render. Please help because my superintendent is on back.

Hi Kristin,
MP4 is not an editable format. The behave in FC is unpredictable.
You should transcode the footage to a more FC friendly format.
MPGStreamclip is the perfect tool to do this task.
Cheers,

[Kristin Austin] "We are using the FLIP HD. Every clip that we insert we have to render."

Flip HD doesn't record a format that FCP edits. You need to convert the footage first. A list of compatible formats is in the EASY SETUP list. I suggest ProRes or DVCPRO HD.

And you'd use Compressor to do this.
