Thanks for your question! This is not a request for more information and I apologize if this message caused you any confusion.

I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet. Most questions are responded to within the hour, but this can depend on different factors, including the difficulty of your question, how many questions are being posted by customers, whether or not this type of question can be answered in an online forum and how many Experts are on the site at the time your question posts.

I will go ahead and try to find an Expert to assist you with your question and appreciate your patience. You will receive an email notification when an Expert replies to you, just as you did here. Unfortunately, I can not guarantee a time-frame for which yours will be answered and I apologize a head of time if the wait is longer than expected.

Please do not reply to this message unless you do not need further help. If that is the case, please let me know and I can assist you with that. When you reply, it locks out the question from the Experts and will slow down their response time to you. If they need more information, they will let you know.

Hi ,

What export settings are you using for imovie , Please try to export Using quicktime conversion , select MP4 , best settings . up the data rate to 6000 or enter 0 , set audio to AAC 44.1khz 320kbps rate , set your video size to HD as required . .

Does this help on importing back in to FCP ?

thanks, XXXXX XXXXX just about figured it out. i made a cut and saved in 720p. havent tried the mp4 but will later on tonight. i think the 720p is going to work well where i'm placing in the movie. can this be duplicated in fcp rather than the creation of a movie file? i have the picture saved but haven't figured out how to get the airport data tied to the picture.
