I imported video footage from my Canon 7D with the eos import software it comes with and put it in FCP.
I am making a stop motion from video footage so I go through frame by frame and pick out the ones I want put all of those frames together and export them as a NTSC QT movie using quicktime conversion.
Reimport the QT play it in the time line and everything works perfectly!!!
I try to change the speed of the clip or put an effect on it or do anything that requires it to render.
than it gives me a general error io or it says codec error. but im working with an NTSC QT not the raw footage out of the 7D
thank you in advance for your help Coulter
Robot Chicken among other great stop motion productions use it. What's nice about it also, is that will kick out your stills as quicktimes (and it will compensate whether you shot at 1s or 2s), plus you'll still have access the raw images, in the event that you want to, say, bring the image sequences into After Effects for zooms, or rig removal.
