    It looks like you may have an alias in the Desktop, and the actual video may be in that strange path - one where you should not store any of your documents.


    Select the movie file in the Desktop in Finder and do a get info (Cmd-I). What does it say under "Kind"? Alias, or Quicktime Movie?

    I asked about "apples" and you answered "oranges"...

    Anyways, still no ideas on the slow runningin FCP? I guess I will just have to optimize everything... even though i shouldn't need to


    I asked about kind, not location. I have two files on my desktop. One is an alias, the other an actual quicktime movie. Notice the difference in both kind and size.
