Help with P2 DVCPRO HD

I captures my footege from the HVX in 720 24p
and they look awesome. but when i drag them to the timeline in my final cut pro, they turn to the red line, wich means i need to render them, that means that it is compressing them... what can i do to work with my full quality????

Thanks for your help.

rendering doesn't always mean compressing.
Can't help you in FCP problem though...

Angel, look at "Sequence Settings" in Final Cut and make sure that everything (frame rate, aspect ratio, compressor) matches your original footage. For example, if you shoot 720pN/24p, your FCP sequence settings would be:

Frame size: 960 x 720
Pixel aspect ratio: HD (960 x 720)
Anamorphic: OFF
Field dominance: None
Editing timebase: 24
QuickTime Video Settings: DVCPRO HD 720p60

Hope this helps,
