Ok you guys. This is a problem ive ran into regularly on the PC and now my Mac. I like taking songs and making music videos to. Just having fun with a music video for Final Fantasy or Pirates or Matrix. My problem is. No matter the format, importing seems to take forever and a half and everytime a clip is used, it has to re-render and such. Ill rip these movies via Handbrake as an MP4. The programs I have available to me to edit with are Final Cut Studios iMovie 06 iMovie 08 QuickTime Pro Any clue or help? Im just not understanding what a friendly format is to have sit on my computer so I can still have it on my iPhone/AppleTV yet let it be friendly to my editing programs.
