      Rendering drives me nuts on Final Cut. I use footage from multiple
      sources and premiere or sony vegas can accept it.
      It seems that Final Cut has a closed system, and is designed not to be
      able to use imported clips from or to multiple platforms. When are
      they going to open up?

      Good luck!
