You cannot edit with files which have long frames.  It will cause the timings of your edits to be out, sometimes by several seconds, by the end of the video.  This is true especially of videos which consume more than 30 minutes to an hour.  You can find out if source materials have long frames by going into FCP and running the "Video Analsysis" (in the tools menu?).  If you have long frames, then your file should NOT be used as an editing source.

'''Saving time on Export'''

== Saving time on Export ==
 +
 
You can save a lot of time when you export a movie in Final Cut by NOT checking the "make movie self-contained" in the dialog box.  This will create almost instantaneous output from FCP and only render the minute areas that require rendering (such as transitions).  It means those files depend upon all the other files (it creates internal links), so you can't distribute them.  To convert a "reference movie" (that's what it's called) into a full copy, you just go into QT7 and re-save it if you ever need to do that.
