Hey y'all,

I have final cut pro but it doesn't support any of the video formats that movie storm renders to? MADNESS!!!! I'd like to find away of getting around converting every single video clip i render and was wondering what other mac users use to edit.  Or if there are video codec packs I can download for final cut pro, I've been doing the research but so far come up empty handed (besides converting every single video file) what are your thoughts?

Have you tried exporting as an image sequence from MS? I don't use FC but noticed this tute: -

Hey,

 

I use the WebM file from MS for Vegas but then I do a conversion to another format. I use avs4you which are a bunch of conversion utilities. There are a bunch of free video converters around as well. It all depends how much quality you want in your video.

Thanks for the tips I ended up spending $2.50 on a video converter addon for media player and its actually its quite good and fast as well so the process isn't as tedious as I thought it would be, turning my avi's to MOV's and using Final cut, I'm glad i didn't go through with using my pc.  But yeah cheers for the help and idea's.

Convert your Web file via 'Anyvid Exporter lite' and then Final Cut should pick it up easily, it's free BTW

Hola,

 

For Libertaria I converted everything to mov using a video converter. I lost the sound, though, but that was fine because since it was a musical, I had to resync audio anyway to the full soundtracks. Not sure if I would do this again. 

 

Right now doing a project and just trying to do all editing in MS (it's for a client and is short two minute clips)

 

What format did you export to? Did the sound stay the same?
