Perhaps cutting the video before editing will help, but this is the only program I've ever used to edit video. I just got Final Cut because I'm planning on taking up a new hobby editing videos. I have some familiarity with an older iMovie that was a lot different. I've noticed that in both Final Cut and iMovie when I import the entire 6gb 2 hour and 20 minute movie, it is very shaky. It's perfectly fine running in a video player. What can I do? Also, if someone knows of any good guides to the basics of Final Cut, that would be great. Edit: I should also note that I converted the movie from .mkv to .m4v before importing it. I still have the .mkv copy.
