Exported video plays a different part of the source clip to the part in the timeline
on Nov 29, 2011 at 2:52:43 pm

Hi guys.

Here's my problem - I am editing a video which is made of screen captures of a website (some of them jazzed up a bit in motion). However, when I export the film, one of the clips in the sequence plays the section about 20 seconds before what i selected in the Viewer.

Everything plays absolutely fine in the timeline, but exporting the sequence, either through FCP or Compressor results in the undesired footage ending up in the exported .mov.

The capture software I used is iShowU HD. I am using FCP 7 and exporting using a range of codecs including ProRes and H.264 to a .mov format.

I have tried a range of cludges like shifting the problematic section into a new timeline, exporting it individually and reinserting it, but with no success.

Does anyone have any advice, or any experience with similar problems? I'd really appreciate some help here!

If you have any clips that are MP4 or h264 or M2V you must transcode them to one of the realtime FCP codecs before editing.
