Edit 1080p video on mac with FCP/FCE/iMovie Native Format,convert 1080p videos to Mac compatible editing formats
What kinds of questions come up to you when you would like to edit recorded videos from HD cameras or camcorders on Mac? Do you get what you want? I have listed a few collections of the question and answers about editing 1080p video on mac for guys to have a better idea about high quality video editing.
Question: Is there any way to keep the highest quality or less quality loss?
Answer: If you are importing the not so well supported videos to FCP/FCE or iMovie, you may not get the highest quality video. Apple ProRes 422 is the highly recommended codec for editing full-frame, 10-bit HD videos. The Apple ProRes family includes Apple ProRes 4444, Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422 (LT), Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy).
Apple ProRes 4444 supports 12-bit and lossless alpha channel for true 4:4:4:4 support. Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) offers visually lossless compression for highest quality video. Apple ProRes 422 offers high quality with lower data rate, but good for real-time editing. Apple ProRes 422 (LT) includes lower data rate than the siblings like ProRes 422, and good for digital broadcast environments. Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy) is generally used for off-line editing with full HD 1920x1080 resolution and 1280x720 resolution.
While ProRes is designed for natively edit HD footage in Final Cut Studio, Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) is the built-in apple codec for Final Cut Express and iMovie. There are also other codec like DV/DVCPro, HDV, as the easy to edit formats.
Question: How can I get video file with lossless compression or ProRes and AIC?
Answer: Final Cut Pro enables you to export with QuickTime conversion to ProRes, in case that you would like to export the files and import back into Final Cut Pro. You can also choose the right codec according to your source video, data rate and your computer configuration.
However, in actual practice when importing videos from Canon EOS 7D DSLR to Final Cut Pro, you may notice that some frames are skipped, or there are lags when previewing in the editing software. Or the video files from camera or camcorder could not be imported to Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, iMovie.
When you face problem editing 1080p videos like H.264 MOV and AVCHD footage in Mac FCP/FCE/iMovie, Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac can help you convert 1080p videos to Mac compatible editing formats like ProRes, AIC, DVCPro HD, DVCPro -NTSC, HDV, DVCPro 50, etc. in high quality.
Below is the screenshot of the Mac 1080p video to editor converter.
