Actually VERY accurate - for native French speakers, picking up Spanish is usually quite easy as the grammar is quite similar. But German is altogether a different animal.

NLE's aren't much different. Moving from MC to FCP, I STARTED with 3 point Insert/Assemble editing, now I typically do a bizarre two point/three point quasi assemble drag-and-drop for my offlines.

If my audio files are mp3, wave etc..... I open them up in Quicktime and export as a AIFF or Quicktime. I do this for all audio that comes into FCP.

I've been doing that for mp3, but it looks like I'll start doing it with wave files as well.

Hang in there Vito - I moved across after years on Sony Vegas and Premiere and I found the whole "Apple paradigm" just so different to get to grips with. I think it will take around 2-3 months of constant FCS use before you forget Avid if my experience is anything to go by. But the move I made was absolutely the right one. Unlike the other 2 apps the FCS workflow is rock solid for me.

Thanks, Sherif.

Just yesterday I was authoring (finally) a dvd from a final cut project, when I realized that some audio was missing from a speech. WTF?

I open the project, and sure enough, somehow I had deleted a clip on one track (the one with the lav of course) for 5 minutes of a speech.

If you drag a clip and put it somewhere, it remains selected. Then if, for example, you mark an 'in' and an 'out' somewhere else on the sequence and hit 'shift-delete' to extract that section, instead Final Cut deletes the other clip that's still selected. That's fun...

So every time you add or move a clip, you need an extra click to deselect it to be sure the next thing you do doesn't effect it. Is this right? There's got to be a better way, and I'd love to hear it.

It's tough switching back as well. I had a client in today with a documentary on Avid, and for 10 minutes I was completely useless until I remembered my keyboard shortcuts.

Anway, have to soldier on! No more whining! Left, right, left, right...
