Q: Final Cut Pro 7 crashes using .ts files ?
"Hello all, this is a problem I've been having for a few months now. Whenever I load larger files into FCP 7, using the media browser, importing, or dragging it from a folder, it crashes. The problem mainly happens while using .ts files but has occasionally happened with .mp4.
