Whenever I try to import any type of video into FCP, it always comes out in the playback window with a sort of purplish color to it. On the event browser, the video shows up normally without the purple-ness, but as soon as I play it on the timeline (and even the event browser) it just has that annoying purple color. The color adjustments are all set to 0% as well.
I've imported video using my iPhone as well as my computer's iSight and it's all the same.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for lookin!
The format (codec) that the iPhone records isn't supported directly in FCP 7. You need to transcode it to ProRes first, then import and edit from the prores copies. MPEG streamclip, or Compressor can do this for you.
