About All Those Resolutions

Final Cut Pro is resolution-independent. That means that it can work with DV, Photo JPEG, and quite a few other formats, including NTSC and PAL—even in uncompressed formats right through to various HDTV formats.

The more third-party equipment you add to the software, the more video formats FCP will be set up to handle, but it comes ready to accept and work great with DV and a Photo JPEG format that FCP calls OfflineRT, as long as you have a G4 and a FireWire port. In fact, the files you are using for this chapter are OfflineRT, so you need to learn how to set up sequence presets correctly and so forth just so you don't render everything you put in the sequences you are building.
