photos in FCP trouble

Hello all,
I'm editing a seemingly simple project that is giving me trouble:
I have a number of JPG stills at 1920x1080 that have to be a 'slide show' over a music track and it has to be a PAL project that I'm sending to Australia.
However the PAL presets on Final Cut do not seem to support that frame size and the other problem is that when I load the audio track into the timeline it has a series of 'pops' which are not present in the original track, even when I preview it in FCP (before I load it into the timeline). Whata?
Any leads are very welcome.

It sounds like you need to render the audio.

I've rarely worked in PAL but whats the result when you put the JPGs in? Have you rendered them?

Hello Jase,
I figured it out my problem. I converted the mp3 to .AIF ( I rendered the mp3, but it played with intermittent 'pops', I never had this problem with mp3's before, but here it is, once i converted the audio from the original file into .aif, it was fine). The jpg's were not being scaled to the proper size in FCP so I manually re-scaled them and kept the sequence setting at Apple proRes @ 25 frames, rather than using the PAL codec in FCP, which seemed to low res mu photos as well as scale it down.
Thanks for the post.
Erick

Erick,

You're tripping up on something that many people find difficult to grasp: PAL is an analogue SD format.

1920 x 1080 is HD. HD is neither PAL nor NTSC it is HD.
