Playback & Print To Video Problems with FCP.

The other day I went and made a nice little edit of myself skating and i put it all together (here's the link if you would like to see- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zidgIf4hEC4) and now I'm trying to Print To Video so I'll always have the edit on a mini dv tape (as I do with all my edits). Problem is, everything plays smoothly except for when I'm actually doing the tricks, then it plays all choppy. Like the intro plays smoothly and then as soon as I jump, it plays all choppy then as soon as I land again, it plays fine. Then the next trick comes on and it does the same throught out the whole sequence.

Also, whenever I try to preview this edit in FCP, it drops frames after a few seconds. Now I've made tons of edits before and never had these problems up until I made this paticular edit.

Any idea's as to how to fix either problem? All help is appreciated.

A few things:

Close any other open Sequences you may have before going to tape

Make sure everything in your Sequence is rendered

Make sure you have mixed down your audio (Sequence>Render Only>Mixdown)

When you are Printing to Tape, are you using the actual command, that is, using Print to Tape with camera control and printing from the timeline ... If so, try exporting your moving as a Quicktime Movie, not self-contained (don't use Quicktime Conversion for this). Bring that movie back into FC and drop it into a new sequence. Try printing from that. You can also just try hitting Rec on your cam/deck and playing the Timeline or Viewer window out

You may have an Interlace prob .. not likely, but worth a shot. Drop your Timeline into a new sequence and apply a Deinterlace filter to it

When all else fails, trash your prefs

I figured out the problem, there were some un-rendered clips, haha.

It's always a good habit to mix down audio and render all before printing to tape or exporting to QT (even though I think it will do it for on QT export). It just helps minimize chances of something getting messed up in the final product.
