    I need someone who knows Final Cut. I've got a few questions and the book is NOT helping.

    Anyone?

    It's version 3. In the pause mode I'm getting diagonal lines through my video. Also either a green checkmark or Yield sign with an exclamation inside.

    I've somehow turned this on, the book doesn't say how to turn it off and it's truly annoying.

    I KNOW THIS ONE!!!

    OHHHH, PICK ME, PICK ME!!!

    You have the luminance or some other image clipping warning turned on.

    The diagonal lines show the parts of your frame that will not show up properly on all monitors because some value is too high and is mainly useful when making a video for broadcast. The green check mark means that the current frame is 'ok'

    I don't know how to turn it off, because I don't have FCP3, but now that the 'problem' is identified, hopefully someone with FCP3 in front of them can find your answer.

    I forget exactly where to find it, but its called RANGE CHECK. I think its under the VIEW menu, just change the setting to off (right now its set to BOTH).

    What range check does: is tell you if your video is too hot (ie if the signal exceeds broadcast levels). The check means its ok
    the yield sign means the white are too hot. If this is for your home movies - and the footage looks fine, then dont worry - if its for broadcast, then worry.

    Also, IIRC, Conrol+Z toggles it on/off.
