SmoothCam Not Working

If you try to apply SmoothCam to a clip and nothing happens, no analyzing, no messages, no errors, nothing...your clip is probably in a format that SmoothCam doesn't like to work with. This can be especially tricky with SD footage.

To solve this, open up your clip in QuickTime Player and export it as Apple Intermediate Codec (or something else depending on the initial codec your clip was encoded to) and Save. Then bring it into FCP and apply the SmoothCam filter.
