I have footage from a flip HD camera that needs editing in FCP. I already streamcliped it to .mov (where it was .mpeg4).
Each time I put the footage in the timeline it needs editing altough it is .mov. And if I Make the clip shorter to gove it more length after (that's what you sometimes do with clips in the timeline) I find myself rendering again!
Please help.. (how would FCP X look with this problem)
