    The ProRes 422 has worked best for me.

    Thanks everyone for your responses. I tried converting the .mov files to canopus hq as well as several other types of which didn't work. I also went into Quick Time Player (pro) and tried many different formats to export but it still didn't fix the problem. If I have the other editor (who is going to be learning Edius VERY soon, lol) re-export the original clips, what settings would work best knowing I'm going to bring the footage into Edius to color correct and output to DVD? I know noting about FCP (and now I really don't want know) so should he use compressor (pro res or something else) or somehow export from the timeline? Again I don't know the correct settings he should use being on a mac.

    Thanks again.

    What are the audio properties of the file? is it 12bit 3200KHz? if so are you able to open the file in soundforge or such like and resample the audio.

    Prores works well between FCP and Edius if your man can re export for you if all else fails.

    download and test before purchase, it worked for me on impossible cross platform files, when nothing else worked.. good to have in your toolbox.

    If you have QuickTime Pro, you can save the file in a different format from within QuickTime Player.

    Argee with the Convert... Use Procoder or Something to Convert From *.MOV File to AVI or What ever you like it should in most cases sort out your problem. Or Get your mate to export from FCP a WAV or Audio File for the video.

It plays perfectly in the quick time player that just happens to be on my pc. However when I bring a couple of the clips onto the Edius timeline the audio is totally out of sync. I tried all types of remedies including changing different values and settings that didn't help. I decided to look at the wav form for each clip, which is the same length as each clip, but approximately 80% of the way through there is no audio. So by brining it into Edius it not only loses sync but it's also shorter. I'm hoping this is one of those "you forgot to do such and such" but I can't get it. Any ideas?

    Glad to be back.

    Use ProCoder, or some other converter, and convert the clips to .avi, and PCM (wave) audio....that has happened to me a few times, and had me puzzled, until I did a convertion.
