Hi, So, I'm trying to make fan edits of existing films. I've been at the first one for way too long and it is no longer enjoyable. I know if I can firgure out the first one, the rest will be the same. I've gone through several attempts (in the beginning, actually going as far as editing the whole film, exporting, burning, only to find out it didn't work). I am now starting with the first five minutes of the first film and I've tried everything and it still jumps. I've watched contless tutorials and have read more discussion boards than I ever wanted to. I have tried ripping a dvd, converting to every possible format before importing, Gave up on that and found a great bluray download and have been attempting to use that. When I downloaded it, its was an MP4. Tried using that in FCE. Jumpy. Converted it to an MOV file. Imported that into FCE. Jumpy. I'm all out of ideas, tutorials and message boards. Please someone help me before I sell all my electronics to go live in a cabin in the woods. Haha.
