I have .mov files from a Canon 60D and a Panasonic (both 1920x1080) that go back several years. I'm trying to assemble them into a movie project now in FCE after iMovie turned out to be a huge bust (banding).


When I import the files, they work fine in the viewer and I can set my in and out points, but once they are put on the timeline they show up in the canvas with a blue line through them that says "not rendered" . . .


. . . after I edited the settings to HD, rate: 29,97 fps Use: AVCHD -1920X1080i60 it now seems to auto render the clip? Is this what it's supposed to do?


I haven't tried editing further but wonder if it's going to have to do this for each clip I import from here on out.

    I am also using screen capture .mov files from Quicktime and they have the same rendering issue

    FCE will struggle mightily with these formats. The solution is to transcode everything to Apple Intermediate Codec before editing. Use the free download, MPEG Streamclip, or buy Compressor ($49) from the App store.


    Transcode them and bring them into FCE.


    Good luck.
