Hi all, A quick couple of questions regarding Red Epic and fcp 7 workflow. I have just shot on Red Epic 5k and had my DIT transcode the rushes into Apple ProRes (lt) for my offline edit on my iMac usi

That did it. Thanks Jeremy. That is so strange that it sees a timeline in the bin and knows to make individual clips with the setting chosen, but won't make an XML for the trimmed media that it transc

by Brandon McFarland 9 years ago
Yep. Been there done that. I've been making non-interlaced material since it was an option. Final Cut Pro seems to not like understand when other applications make their own codec... All signs point t

by Paul Aasen 8 years ago
I Have the same exact problem when encoding both H.264 and FLV, it seems like Adobe Media Encoder doesn't decode the mov-file correctly, as is in the source window shows the frames as green, pixelated
Aliasing issue in FCP from AE
by Eric Mousel 11 years ago
Hi all, A problem like this has been posted before but this situation is a tad different. When bringing motion graphics into FCP from AE we're experiencing some jagginess on the curves of some text. T
