I'm having the most hideous time with FCP while trying to edit to tape or even print to tape. Just for those who like to know what I'm using, fcp 6 on an iMac g5. Cam is a common or garden sharp viewcam which is recognised by FCP. I import from it all the time. The footage was recorded by a canon xl1.
All I want to do is get my edited footage on to a tape. How effing hard can this be? AAARRRGH! About to throw FCP out of the window and now have such a hatred for it I'm seriously considering going Avid out of spite if nothing else.
Had a look at Ken Stone's blog and followed his instructions to the letter. Also had a look through here and a million other forums and found questions followed by questions and even more questions. Doesn't anyone have any idea of what kind of fixes there are for this problem?
Has no one ever encountered the same problem and fixed it?
Can I also say that I don;t know any tech jargon and don;t live with figures coming out of my ears or codecs or anything else like that.
If anyone knows anything I'd be very grateful. And please, answers only.
