CamStudio is a compact little program with some nice features tucked away to maximize its allure. You can create quick demos and screencasts on your computer in AVI and, if you wish, you can convert them into Flash format (SWF). If you’ve recorded some videos using CamStudio, you may want to edit the CamStudio footage to make them more stylish before uploading to YouTube /Facebook/Instagram. However, you’ll find it a painful experience when working with the footage from Camstudio in Final Cut Pro (FCP X/7/6). And you may encounter problems like these:
“I have successfully recorded several screencast sessions in CamStudio using the Camstudio lossless codec. I then used VirtualDub to edit them. Now I need to use clips of these screencasts in a Final Cut project. Final Cut is Mac-only and relies on Quicktime. So I think I need to transcode the edited AVI file using Camstudio Lossless codec to a MP4 file using some codec that is part of Quicktime.
What codec and settings would you suggest I use? Can VirtualDub do the transcoding? Or do I need to use other video covnerter?”
We found many people are facing the similiar problems when editing the lossless codec from CamStudio in Sony Vegas? To solve the problem, the best and easiest solution is to convert the CamStudio Lossless video to a more editing-friendly codec for Sony Vegas.
After testing a few different codecs, the one that works best for Final Cut Pro is the Apple ProRes codec. So what you need to is to find an AVI to FCP converter.
