    Question iMovie to Final Cut Pro.....
    I seem to have an issue with my final cut pro and iMovie. I connected my cam to my Powerbook and dumped the footage from my cam onto iMovie.....this was just a simple test to make sure that it worked. Then I finally installed Final Cut Pro and took the clips (.dv) into FCP. When I imported the files, the video's play without a problem, ready to be edited. The problem is the sound is replaced with a constant beeping sound.

    I have been able to dump footage from the cam into FCP without a problem. I was just wondering why it was making this beeping noise when I take it from iMovie.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    In FCP this means that the sound isn't "rendered". You need to highlight the sound in the timeline and hit "command+R". This should sort the beeping.
    Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...

    Well....let me say it's a logical program. I do often times read in the manual. But it hasn't been that bad for me because I use to use Adobe Premiere Pro for Windows. So I kind of knew what editing programs can do. Like I say it's a logical program though.

    Final Cut Express may be better - I use it and was able to get it of the Education website for 129. It also comes with Soundtrack and Livetype.
