    When I export iPhone 6 videos from Final Cut 7 their resolution is not 1920×1080 (in this case 1920×810 cause I am recording in 16:9) but 320×240.
    I tried to convert the files in Apple Pro Res 422 LT with MPEG Streamclip before importing them into FCP7 but the final result is always the same.

    Actually the steps I take are the following:
    1) I export the video from iPhone 6 to iPhoto on my mac
    2) I convert the files with MPEG Streamclip in Apple Pro Res 422 LT, I just select this codec, I do not change the resolution, which is set automatically to 1920×1080, and then I increase the quality to 100%
    3) I import the converted files into FCP7
    4) I edit them
    5) I export them using the same format (in this case Apple Pro Res 422 LT), but also when I change the exporting format the quality does not change

    What errors am I making? I read similar topics on this forum, and they suggested to convert the iPhone files in the Prores format with MPEG Streamclip, but it seems to not work. In addition, every time I edit the files a red line appears over them and I have to render them.

    It has to be something in your export settings from FCP7. Try Export>Quicktime Conversion … and make sure your settings are what you desire.

    I think the problem is not about the exporting setting, or maybe just not only about this, but about the importing ones. Indeed, every time I modify something (such as cutting a video) FCP7 forces me to render that video-clip. I tried to modify the importing setting according to some tutorials I found on the Internet, but this problem always occurs. I really do not understand what kind of settings I should use to import iPhone 6 videos on FCP7.
