Hi all,

I have 720p 60fps footage to import into final cut from a small kodak camera. It's giving me an error message for that, but not for the 1080p footage I'm also importing. Do I need to convert the footage somehow?

Thanks,
Aaron

Impossible to know what could be wrong with as little information as you are giving.

Well, yes! Convert the footage into a video-codec FCP speaks natively like Pro-Res or Apple Intermediate and you won't have any problems.
Depending on the codec of your source material this can be quite difficult finding the right software.

If I knew, I'd gladly tell haha. I'll try to find out but it's a really consumer camera that doesn't belong to me and FCP is accepting the 1080P30 and 720P30, just not the 720P60, so I was wondering if FCP didn't like that frame rate or something.
