Why wouldnt you just add the clips to the timeline and let it adjust the settings automatically.

Thanks for the tutotial. It was smooth and painless!

yea this is absolutely just the wrong way to do this...

you need to transcode 5d mk II footage to prores (which version depends on your mac) then import and just drop a clip to a sequence and it will adjust the settings for you

One thing is certain, you absolutely do not edit h.264 natively in fcp and it is a mistake to do so

Hey guys I really need a help from you. I am busy editing a short event I will like to put 3 or 4 clips playing in the some line? I am new on FCP 6. anyone can help?
