Thank you for reading, and thanks in advance for help! Here is my issue: Video was shot on a JVC HDD Camera, and I was able to get the .MODs off the camera and dropped them into a folder on my scratch drive. I then download MPEG Streamclip and converted the clips to a .MOV. I tried using them in Final Cut Pro, but then FCP started crashing. So I pulled them into QTPro and exported as .MOVs from QTPro. I pulled them into FCP and FCP no longer crashes, but runs really slow. And sometime there will be a lag between audio and video...only sometimes though. So my question is: What am I doing wrong? Could someone who has been able to edit .MOD footage in FCP6 please tell me exactly what they did and how they did it? Thanks so much!!!
