How To Get Clean Cuts With Multiple Video Codecs

Video from multiple codecs can clash when edited together. Here's how to avoid that problem.

Select "Add Files" and add the files from the directory where the footage is located.

Next, click "Go" and select "Encode to QuickTime." QuickTime is a versatile format that Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, and most other editing applications can easily read. Select a destination folder--again for speed, use a drive that's local, but an external drive is fine if capacity is a concern.

For editing, select "Apple DV/DVCPRO."

Ensure the quality is set to 100 and the size close to the original's aspect ratio. 720 x 480 is recommended for those using NTSC.

Encoding movies can take a while and uses a large amount of system resources. The length of time needed will vary dramatically, depending on the quality of the input file and your machine's technical specifications.
