    I cant render
    Hey guys... I'm having trouble rendering (amongst other troubles). I have a new MacBook Pro w 4gigs of ram and plenty of hard drive space...and Im ussing FCP5 and I cant render my movie, it'll go up to a certain percentage and that "beachball" icon appears and NEVER goes away, I have to forcequit FCP. I've trashed my preferences for FCP and restarted FCP and no luck. Any ideas? Maybe some corrupt files? and if so how can I trash them? thanx in advance.

    Kia ora, can you give us a bit more info about your system? Versions of software, specifically, Final Cut (5.xxx??), OSX and quicktime for starters. Have you installed any other software AFTER Final Cut? Logic for example will install a few things in overlapping locations. Affects Soundtrack and Compressor more than anything but something to be aware of. What kind of footage are you working on? Did you record it from a camera? What are the settings of your sequence timeline? Can you export or are you specifically having problems with rendering? Can you successfully render individual regions rather than the whole time line? Questions questions I know :) Cheers, John

    Hey John, thanx for the reply. I found out what it was (I think), well not really, I just erased and reinstalled EVERYTHING, and the problem persisted. I found out it was some clips I had on the timeline. I did most of my filming from the Sony HDR-Whatever I said it was, But I threw in some HD clips from another Sony camera I used....well long story short, it was those clips from my HD cam...I took 'em out and it rendered fine...dont understand why but, there it is. Thanx.

    mixing different formats in the timeline is more a feature in FCS2.
