    Converting asf file to be final cut compatible
    Does anyone know how I can convert an asf file into an mp4 format or anything that I can use to edit the file on final cut pro? handbrake and other converters that I've tried won't read the file.

    If you have Final Cut Pro, then you should have Compressor as well. I don't know for sure if Compressor will convert asf files but it's easy to find out. Import the file into Compressor, and drag one of the preset formats into the batch window, then choose a destination. If it's a large file, you can mark in and out points in the preview area on the right side of the interface to transcode just a short portion of the file. You can export it to any of the formats in Compressor, including H.264, mp4, dv, and others. If you're able to view your test video as an mp4, just remove the in and out points and export the entire file. If not, you may need some other kind of converter, which maybe someone else can suggest.

    You can use ffmpegx ( ffmpegX a DVD, SVCD, VCD, CVD, VOB, DivX, XviD, H.264, PSP, iPod, MP4, MOV encoder for Mac OSX ) to convert it (asf is a microsoft file container that usually contains WMV or WMA style data.

    I came across another package called filejuicer, but I have never used it before and don't know how well it works (it's available through macupdate) it's trialware / shareware and costs $17.95 to purchase it.

    You could also try Miro Video Converter. It's free and although I don't have much experience with it, it's simple and get's the job done.
