So I'm not sure what I'm doing, I have tried it with several clips now and I always run into the same problem.

When I apply smoothcam to a video clip in Final Cut, it looks ok, but when I render the file the video suddenly becomes half as long and twice the speed. The second half of the file is left as a black section.

The audio remains the same.

What am I doing wrong?

    What format are your clips (compressor, frame rate, etc) and what are your sequence settings?
    G5 Dual2.5 Gig, MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.5.6), FCP 6.0.5

    H.264 is a delivery format and not used in production. I don't know where this material came from in this unusual frame size and frame rate but it really needs to be converted to an FCP supported format. How did you get this into your computer?
    15" 2.4G MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
