I've been playing around on FCP7 for a few months and a friend has sent me some footage on a seagate expansion external drive. All the clips are in AVI format when i tried to import the folder of clips this message popped up..
The following media files are not optimized for final cut pro.
It is highly recommended that you either recapture the media or use the media manager to create new copies of the files to improve there performance in multi-stream playback.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for the next step??
If i'm not using the clips for multi-streaming can i just proceed with the project?? Just would like to understand what that meant.
