Hi Apple Community,


I recently made a tutorial about how to do a certain effect in Final Cut Express, recorded with Quicktime's built-in screen recorder. I need to edit out some parts, such as when the video is rendering, and I need to add an intro. When I try to import it into Final Cut Express, it gives the an error reading "File Error: 1 file(s) recognized, 0 access denied, 1 unknown." I have looked through many other discussions and the only solution I can find to the import the screen recording into iMovie and export it as a different format. Only problem with that is that I don't have iMovie. I have tried "Save As..." in Quicktime and saving as a "Movie" and as "HD 720p." Neither of these will change the format and allow me to import into Final Cut Express. Please help!


Thanks in advance,


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
