    Import FCP clips

    We are going to import some FCP clips of different resolutions into MC 3.5. Some are HD, some are not.

     Does this look like a good workflow?

    Import the clips into QTpro with FCP & Avid codecs installed> Export the clips with avid codec, or, make QT reference files with the Avid codecs, or use animation settings in QT on expot.

    Cheerio!

    Re: Import FCP clips

    If it were me I would use the Animation codec.  Is maintaining timecode a concern?

    But, if you use an Avid codec, then it'll at least be a "Fast Import".

    Re: Import FCP clips

    Maintaing TC is not an issue.  Also the Duck is not an issue as the clips are not cut. Just want to use the FCP clips and cutem'.   So QT reference clips , then export with Avid codec.  Cheers!

    Duh - Why bother with the QT refs. I'll just export em with the codec.

    MC version 3.5 now imports/exports quicktimes with embedded timecode. So you shouldn't lose TC info
