General Error problem whem working with H.264 mp4 files
on Oct 12, 2011 at 6:36:32 am

I am working on editing a wedding video. Each time I try to place two video files in the same sequence I get a 'General Error' prompt. The only way I got around this is by placing each video file in its own sequence, but when I try to copy and paste any of the files from one sequence to a sequence that already contains a video in it, the 'General Error' pops again. I tried adding the video to a different track within the same sequence - same result.
All files were converted from MTS (Canon HD camcorder) to the following format (running time is different for each file but no more than 10 min. each):
***** Analyzed File Results *****

*** General Parameters ***
- Name: 00037.mp4

I am using a Mac Pro 5.1 2x2.4 GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon 11 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 with OS X 10.6.8 and Final Cut Pro 7.0.3.

Thanks in advance,

Convert to Prores422 with uncompressed audio. FCP doesn't edit mp4 with compressed audio
