If you are not sure what file types final cut pro support, find your answer here and get the best video and audio formats for editing in FCP.

“I have been using FCP for several years, and oddly enough I have never paid much attention to the editing format, or what format would work best with Final Cut Pro. Since FCP always changes the sequence settings to match what format video I import I have just never taken the time to learn more about it. What thoughts do you guys have on what the very best compression/format that works in Final Cut Pro? – Apple Support Communities” 

“Like the title says, I have some GH4 footage, both 4k & 1080p in the MOV format and FCPX only plays back a few frames before the picture freezes and the audio continues. Quick look can preview the 4k files straight from the SD card so I can’t quite figure out why FCPX can’t play them. Or is it a format that’s not supported without optimisation?”

Tips for Importing and Editing Canon 5D Mark IV 4K MOV with Avid MC

digisns76 No Comments

Canon’s new 5D Mark IV succeeds the Mark III with more of everything. But most importantly, it records 4K video, something mirrorless cameras like Panasonic’s GH4 have had for years and Sony’s Alpha-series cameras now come standard with. For videographers and filmmakers, the ability to record in 4,096 x 2,160 resolution at 30p or 24p and capture 8.8-megapixel 4K still images from the footage has been long overdue. 

 

Video is such a core part of a DSLR now that simply tossing in 4K wouldn’t have been enough. So Canon also added HDR (High Dynamic Range) video recording to prevent blown out highlights, built-in timelapse, HD recording at 120 fps, and a 3.2-inch touchscreen with 1.6 million-dot resolution (and yes, it’s fully functional everywhere unlike the one on the EOS 1DX Mark II which only lets you use it for autofocusing).
