Thanks for any help you can give me guys. I am working with an online community making videos from 'video game' footage. Due to online video file sharing challenges and organization/archiving planning - we are using YouTube to share private videos that I can then pull down (in 720p .mp4 mostly) to cut into videos I make in FCP7. Obviously FCP doesn't work with .flv or YT .mp4 natively so there is no "Easy Setup" configs that will work with these formats natively w/o rendering or pre-conversion. I hope some of you more experienced FCP editors out there can help me streamline my workflow here. What "easy setup" settings should I use? Should I just convert to something like AIC or HDV (doing 720p30) or something else? Converting/Rendering creates such huge files so I'm hoping to find another way. Thanks for any help you can give. FYI - working on Mac Pro 2.8 and full FCStudio Suite.
