About the Analyze Movie Command

The Analyze Movie command is an extremely useful tool. With it, you can:

 Troubleshoot your media files: You can check the properties of your clips’ media files,

including the frame rate and data rate, and check whether the media files have any
dropped frames.

 Find the parameters of QuickTime media files: Editing is much easier when the media

file settings match the sequence settings. When you have a media file whose settings
you don’t know, you can use the Analyze Movie command to determine the media
files’ settings, and therefore what sequence settings you need to edit with that
media file into a sequence in Final Cut Pro. You can even create a sequence preset
to match these parameters to use for editing the clips.
