Canon Final Cut Studio Video

Still photography is only half of the equation on any modern camera, and video is unfortunately the biggest thing holding the Canon EOS M5 back. Canon has gone to great lengths to make shooting video as easy as possible on this camera, but at the end of the day, it fails to live up to the standards set by Sony and Panasonic, which are putting 4K into their cameras, among other features (the M5 support Full HD 1080 at 60p). It record HD MP4 video.

While, FCP Xprefer MPEG-4 and H.264 codecs instead of others. If your Canon EOS M5 MP4 files are not compatible with FCP X, it’s probably because of the different codec in a number of Canon EOS M5 MP4 files as Final Cut Pro X (even the latest version 10.3) might not support all of these codecs. Thus, there are many video, audio codec problems while importing Canon EOS M5 MP4 video into FCP X for editing. Plus, even the Final Cut program can ingest your Canon EOS M5 MP4 files directly, it takes a long time for rendering. The best method to avoid those problems and save time is to convert Canon EOS M5 MP4 to a more editing-friendly format, such as FCP X’s Prores MOV (the most compatible video format for PP).
