I have a question
I got some footage from a HD camcorder and it would not play right on a PowerMac G4. I am convinced that it is because my computer cannot handle the file. How can I make the file smaller without reducing FPS?

If you can open it in QuickTime Pro (FCP Newbie) you can export it into a different size. Ditto with FCP or iMovie.

If this is simply a horse power issue, you should still be able to export to another usable size. If the problem is the codec, then you need to figure out what it is and how to convert it.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
