First, sorry if this has been posted a million times before but im totally new when it comes to the mac and FCE, and i hope i dont sound like a complete idiot. I am beyond frustrated, heres my problem. I cant import anything into FCE! Im using ripped DVDs, not video from a camcorder/camera. I have a program that converts the VOBs (DiVA) but no format ive tried works! ive tried every compression, put in the proper frame rate ect. i cant even use Mpeg StreamClip..it keeps telling me i need the mpeg2 component...which i shouldnt have to download for it to work. When i import I keep getting an error telling me it doesnt recognize the file, telling me its unknown. I have no idea what to do, and its probably something really simple. And yes, ive tried reading a FCE book, it doesnt give a lot of information on how to import from the source im using. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
