Importing Quicktimes - Says to use Media Manager to fix?
on Feb 11, 2010 at 5:32:44 pm

Hey, I'm bringing in Quick times into Final Cut Pro and it is telling me that they have not been optimized for Final Cut multi stream playback and to use Media Manager to make a new copy of them. I do this and it creates a new file. I try and import that file only to receive the same message again.

They seem to play in the timeline fine. They were recorded in an application that uses the Apple Intermediate codec.

Do I really need to do anything to them? Is the quality being affected? THANKS.

I get that warning every now and then. From footage captured by FCP. Ignore the message...they tend to work just fine.

Unless they don't...then tell us what happens. But normally, they just work.

okay....cool. one of them told me it couldn't load into the timeline because it was a 12 hour long quicktime. not true. i close and reopened FC or something...can't remember exactly, but it started working. weird.

I'm capturing some webinar stuff using iShowU HD and it allows me to export any flavor of quicktime. I've been doing the Apple intermediate codec but maybe i should do prorez to avoid this?

THANKS again.

ProRes is a much improved codec over AIC.
