How To Render in Final Cut Pro
When editing footage or audio in Final Cut Pro, by adding effects or change anything in a clip, you must render it for it to play at it’s best.
When the bar above the clip is highlighted as ORANGE, it is can be played but I’ll be choppy.
When the bar above the clip is RED, it cannot be watched at all….UNRENDERED will pop up.
To render it:
Go to Sequence
Select RENDER ALL or RENDER SELECTION
Then select, BOTH so that whatever changes to you made to your clips will adjusted and viewed at its best.
