It's very difficult to answer as you haven't put your image settings or what your project settings are. I would do this on this or a repost perhaps in the photoshop and you'll find you get many more answers.

So many things wrong here. H264 is a delivery and sometimes a camera format but not an editing format. It is compressed and lossy.

Frame size is also non standard. FCP has been designed to work with standard frame sizes like 720 x 576 (anamorphic) in SD and 1920 x 1080 in HD

So look at doing your edit in preferably us an HD 1920 x 1080 ProRes422 timeline. And finally media should not be on your system drive

i had to compress to H264 because my file sizes werer 600mb each. so what your saying is use some other compressor, what compressor would you recommend, and should i change to 1920 x 1080 in HD or does that really matter?
