    Final Cut Pro Rendering Question
    hi all..

    so i've been trying to import some Flip video files into FCP. i've been exporting the Flip files into .mov files. no problems there.

    i just notice that every time i try to move my footage in the time line, it has to be rendered. EVERY TIME! this kills my workflow.

    is there any way i can change or get around this?

    Sounds like you first need to convert that from the codec contained in the .mov file to something friendly to FCP. Likely a DV format or AIC (Apple Intermediate Code) with 48Khz audio if I recall right. I would just open the file in QuickTime Pro and save in an appropriate format.
