Like the title explains, I am trying to export an edited video.
When importing one of my tapes off of my DVX100a the video and audio were out of sync. I always seem to have problems with importing off my tapes (maybe a dirty head... anyways...). I just left it instead of re-importing. Most of the edit is using only video anyways. But, at the end I have a few clips that are using audio. I manually synced up the audio with the video in my FCP timeline -- NOTE: the audio was further off the further into the tape I went, but I dealt with this too, in the timeline.
So, now I have a completed video with audio/video that I am happy with.
The problem, when I export, FCP must use the timecode of the audio, bc all of the audio is right, but the video that I manaully synced up is wrong. All of the video from that tape are off.
I need to know if there is a way I can tell final cut just to export it exactly how it looks on the timeline without worrying about timecode.
I have exported both "using Quicktime Conversion" (H.264) and using "Quicktime Movie" (custom DV anamorphic setting) -- both have the same exact problem. I am currently exporting using Compressor (h.264) but when I tried it last night, it failed about 2 hrs in. So, we'll see if it works this time -- so far so good.
I am running FCP 7.0 on a white macbook with Compressor 3.5

Just an update:
Compressor finished exporting and it has the same problem -- that was using h.264
I am going to try mpeg2 (though, i'm pessimistic) since I'm just making a dvd anyways.CELESTIAL SUICIDE PRODUCTIONS

When I've run into this type of problem it's been due to a corrupt piece of media. Try opening the clip from the DVX in QT, export it out same as source (so DV in this case), cut the new clip into your sequence and export. That usually does the trick for me.

that means I'll have to re-import and re-edit everything off of that tape...
also, I don't think quicktime x will allow me to do what you are mentioning -- I'll have to see if I can still get a copy of an older quicktime.
Also, for the record, the video file, when played in quicktime is all synched up properly...CELESTIAL SUICIDE PRODUCTIONS
