    After I export my sequence and play it back well quicktime lags during the transitions, its really bad, at some points it doesnt even lag it just fucks up completely. During the edit, all my transitions are marked "unrendered" which I ignored hoping it wouldnt affect the exported sequence...obviously its fucking it up. Im a noob so I have no clue what I might be doing wrong.

    Here is a screen shot of the video while trying to transition clips

    Clear the temporary rendered files? That's what I'd do in Adobe Premiere when I had problems. Then it has to create everything, including transitions, from scratch.

    That's pretty bizzare. Can't say I've come across that problem personally. Make sure when you render you are rendering the entire sequence, and also that you "render all: both". If anything is red or green above the clips then it's not getting rendered for some reason.

    Also what sort of footage is it that you're editing? MOV, MVI, AVI...? I've come across some seriously weird glitches in editing certain video formats. What settings are you exporting this out as?

    Hey charlitos,

    *raises hand* FCP7 expert here =)

    How many harddrives are you working with on your computer that has FCP7? And what version of quicktime do you have? There could be problems depending on a number of things in either FCP7 or Quicktime. Rendering is a bizarre and complicated beast that makes you go "WTF IS THIS" when you first encounter it.

    yo Jake, my version of quick time is 10.1, OSX Lion all running on a brand new 27" iMac with a 2.7 Quad Core sandy bridge, 1TB 7200 RPM and 4GB DDR3. The format Im exporting is H.264 icon_cry.gif

    OH SHIT, is that 10.7? I've been warned at work not to upgrade due to a SHIT TON of problems it has with numerous software. In fact I accidentally uploaded an iTunes version which doesn't even work! icon_sad.gif You should definitely ask this question in the Apple discussion forums here

    There's a good chance FCP7 doesn't work BECAUSE it's running in Lion.
