One HUGE thing that you need to get right to ensure a really good working Final Cut Pro system is the perfect balance of Final Cut Pro and Quicktime. Quicktime is the engine in FCP, everything that FCP captures it captures as Quicktime. So having the right version for the version of FCP you are using is critical. If you use a version that is too new, you will have issues. Too old…issues. But for there was never a real comprehensive list of what version of QT works best with your version of FCP. Us editors just had to know.
Here is that list. Thanks to Jon Chappell over at Digital Rebellion.
