    can quicktime play avi or mpg files? can avi or mpg files be imported to idvd and burned? if not, can anyone tell me how to convert the files to quicktime, or how to import them into imovie or fcp to make clips for idvd? thanks!

    Quicktime can play just about anything you have downloaded the codec for... except WMV and other various Windows Media files. But AVIs and Mpegs are no problem.

    You should be able to take just about anything into iDVD... I've even imported DivX AVIs into it without any problem. If you do have trouble you can always try importing into FCP and export as a quicktime with video or animation compression.

    You should have no problem with that but you can't import avi's into fcp then export them as quicktime becaue fcp can not read avi audio.

    Which version of FCP are you running? I'm pretty sure I've imported AVIs with audio before... But I am using 4.5HD.

    I've been thinking about picking up the new FC Studio.... If nothing else just for motion 2 and Soundtrack Pro. The new features look awesome.

    When I get my new system, I will be getting Final Cut Studio also.
