    Hey guys, so one of my clients gave me a high quality MP4 movie file to edit into 30 second promos.

    Since Final Cut Pro 6 does not support MP4 files, I converted in into .AVI and the program compressed it along the way (I used MPEG Stream clip). I started editing until I test exported and the quality looked like sh*t.

    Is their a way I could convert an MP4 file into something FCP will recognize without compressing it and without loosing any quality?

    -Thanks
    BKI

    that looks pretty good.


    When I convert it, the finished DV file has a green vertical bar on the right side. How do I get rid of that. Is their a way to get around that without having to crop the video?

    I've never seen that before. Is the rest of the video squeezed to make room for the green bar?

    No it puts it right on top of the video on the right side. Here check out the screens.
