When I add a transition into my timeline and render and playback it is causing the video to skip for a second then it goes normal. Any advice on what the problem is. I am shooting with a Canon 5d MKII

Have you converted the video to a proper editing codec? Your camera records using h.264 which is not a proper editing codec.

Doing a search on the forum for editing h.264 will provide plenty of info. Your question is asked multiple times a day.

[Jason Dodson] "what would you recommend putting my settings to with me using this camera if you dont mind me asking."

jason,

Simply stated, ProRes 422 is the goto codec in FCP.

Whenever there is a doubt in your mind, always go to ProRes 422.

And please notice. I did not say ProRes HQ, nor ProRes LT, nor ProRes Proxy. ProRes 422 should simply be considered the standard.

Got it?
