Hi Joe, First, Thank you once again for taking the time in helping me out! Your suggestion in regards to EditReady has helped me out with my media conversions. I did across a large amount of .avi media that needs to be converted as well. I know FCPX will accept .avi but, wouldn't it in your opinion be best to convert it all to .mov before importing it into FCPX for editing? If so, do you have any suggestions for the best converter for this since EditReady won't ingest it? I've tried the free one through Apple App's called Free Video Converter which only gave me 50% of the original quality of .avi. I'd like to add, I did post this message on the forum as well. Thanks again, Ray
