Well, I got my MB SR 2.2 GHz a few weeks ago, and it's awesome. I decided to give Final Cut Pro a try on it, and surprisingly enough, it runs pretty well. Just a question, how the hell on earth do I get FCP to read .MPG files fully? It reads the video file, but not the audio, why? Do I need a plugin? If so, where do I get it? This is for FCP 5 btw. Also, every time I add an effect, I have to render it. I think thats pretty stupid, can I bypass it at all, or atleast be able to preview the clip without rendering it, with the effect in place? Thanks.
