So I'm currently working on some screencast videos for work and have started to play with Final Cut Express a bit.
I'm recording the on-screen action using Snapz Pro and I'm saving it using the Apple Animation codec. This seems to be fairly lossless...
But when I drag the resulting movie file to Final Cut for editing (primarily zooming and panning to different areas of the screen and inserting overlays), it all seems incredibly slow.
I only have a Macbook here at home - which is obviously not ideal - but I didn't think it would be this bad!
I'm recording an area roughly 1280x720 in size, so it's obviously a hi-res file, but it won't even play back the completely unedited raw footage smoothly.
Any ideas? I suspect it might be due to the codec I'm using. What would you guys suggest as an alternative if this is the case?
Über-respect to all the video professionals who can help!
Try rendering the video once in FC, then try cutting it. Helped me quite a bit.
Agree with mbcgonag. I just confirmed this with FCP. Also, if you loose the render, then do it again, export the clip to something more friendly to to FC and re-import it.
