Hello all! First time posting... I've got Final Cut Express HD 3.5.1 (yes, from 2006, but it serves me very well and I can't afford the new stuff), and I've been tasked with editing down some files that are in .avi format. I've tried converting them with MPEG Streamclip (just downloaded this month) but that software doesn't see the file. I just get a white block with no sound that doesn't respond to the play button. The .avi files play perfectly well in VLC, and I can't open them in Quicktime. Anybody have a suggestion? Time isn't an issue for me, though I can't buy any new software... hoping for a freeware solution. Thanks so much!
