Pathwalker's Journal: I broke Final Cut Pro!

Journal by Pathwalker

Sequence Error: Unable to perform edit. The duration of the resulting sequence would exceed 4 hours.

It happened when I was trying to clean up the 6 hour chunk of audio from Friday's IPM. I brought in my laptop and a iMic, to grab an uncompressed version of the whole show, so I could crunch it down into QuickTime (Mpeg-4 AAC) at various bit rates (and eventually ABR MP3 and ogg) to compliment the old RealAudio archives.

I wanted to trim some silence off of the beginning, run a filter on some talk segments that had popping in the background, and see how hard it would be to mark start/end points of songs to add a text track with the song names, but I had to just crunch the raw audio.

Next time I think I'll see if I can break Peak DV...
