Final Cut Pro 6 Video Tutorial – Editing Basics 07: Importing Video (4) – Photo JPEG with File Error






Over the next several days, we are going to release several or up to a dozen video tutorials for Apple’s Final Cut Pro 6. This series is intended for those who have just started using Final Cut Pro 6 without prior experience in digital video editing and need some guidance. We, MacHouse, edit more than 200 videos each year, using Apple Final Cut Pro. So we can help you.

This Final Cut Pro 6 video tutorial series is for offline editing. That is, we assume that all video clips are stored on a hard disk drive. So we don’t import videos from video cameras.

Reading a video clip with Final Cut Pro is never easy. For example, when you try to import a video clip to Final Cut Pro, you may occasionally get a warning sign that says ‘File Error: Unknown file.’ Okay… What does that mean? I can’t use this video clip with Final Cut Pro? If Final Cut Pro rejects it, then what can we do so that it will read it?

In the 7th tutorial of the Final Cut Pro 6 Editing Basics video tutorial series, we use a video clip whose video stream is compressed with Photo JPEG. The video clip comes from iStockPhoto.com.

Keywords: iStockPhoto.com, Photo JPEG, Key Frames, Sequence Settings, Aspect Ratio, Custom, Compressor
