I am cutting a movie in FCP7. The movie was shot on a 7D. For the most part everything is fine but there is one scene that looks fine on the timeline, but once I export it as a QT, the audio is off.


There are no different settings in this scene than in the other but for some reason, this one looks normal on the timeline but is out of sync when I view the exported QT.

    Have you converted the material to a fcp friendly format BEFORE editing?  This is crucial,

    FCP is a great program, but it allows you to work with material that is not appropriate.  Although you may be able to work with what I assume is h264 material for a while, eventually it will bite you on the rear.  Do some searching here and you'll see many, many problems that can be traced back to working with it.  


    If you continue working with it, you're liable to have many more problems down the road.  You might get lucky, but you may be digging yourself a very deep hole.


    If you want some help converting the material without losing all the work you've put in to your project so far, let us know.
