There is a work around on Windows that may solve the issue. Try renaming the clips from .mov to .mpg.
I don't know for certain that that will work on a Mac, because I understand Macs don't rely on file extensions like Windows does.
I just tried that and it seems to work well. No stuttering. Thank you. It's kind of a pain to go through all the files and change the names but it works. Hopefully there will be an update to fix this but it's easier than encoding. \

Regarding renaming: Bridge is great for batch-renaming.
Here's more context about this issue, by the way:
I used Bridge today to change the file names. Much easier that doing each on singly. Thank you for the advice.
