Apple Final Cut Pro can add "black frames"

Are you seeing black frames when you’re using the SlingStudio file import plug-in for Apple Final Cut Pro? Here’s more information.

When you import a SlingStudio project into Apple Final Cut Pro using the SlingStudio import application, you may find that Final Cut Pro introduces black frames at the beginning of your video clips. Sometimes the number of frames varies between the different streams.

These black frames are inserted when Final Cut Pro attempts to align your video clips to properly synchronize them. There should only be a few of these frames, and the result should not affect your overall project.
