    Working with AE CS4 and Final Cut Pro

      Hi all,

       

      I've been doing a lot of projects recently working between AE CS4 and FCP.

       

      All the work I've been doing has been animation based and all projects have been HD. I've been rendering out clips of up to a minute from AE as .mov with H.264 codec and then putting them in FCP to edit together.

       

      The problem that I'm having is that quite often FCP runs slowly once there are a lot of mov files in the sequence. It also crashes when there is a long (50 seconds, so not really that long!) .mov clip in the sequence. I was just wondering if there is a better way for me to be rendering these clips out for use in FCP. Obviously they need to stay at a very high quality.

       

      Any help would be much appreciated,

       

      Thanks,
