I made up a movie in Final cut express (4.01).

Everything rendered.


I exported, both 'Quicktime' and 'Quicktime conversion'.


Selected 'Video and audio' and Video plus audio in the repsective exports.


Audio is coming right through, NO VIDEO!

    More info please.

    What are the clip and Sequence properties?

    Right click the respective icons in the Browser and select the Item Properties for both then post.

    FCE defaults to DV-NTSC and that's is the current Sequence you have. When any clips hit the Timeline FCE will try to connform the clips to match it's Sequence properties, in your case NTSC 720 x 480.


    Also  the clips are H.264 and that's not an FCE editing codec. That's why you have no video.


    You can use Streamclip from Squared 5 to transcode the files to AIC Quicktime files then bring the converted files to FCE. AIC is the Apple Intermediate Codec. The settings should match the FCE Easy Setup or rendering will occur.


    Select the correct Easy Setup before bringing the converted files in.


    Use FCE>Easy Setup>AVCHD-1920 X 1080i60 save Project, now import the converted AIC files.


    Hang on to your hat and keep fingers crossed.
