Import Nikon D7000 MOV footage to FCP X-Convert MOV to ProRes 422 HQ
Transcode Nikon D7000 MOV to Apple ProRes for FCP X Editing
I have a Nikon D7000, which shoots HD MOV Movies. Last week I shot many videos with it on my friend's birthday party and wanted to edit them before sharing them to vimeo. I copied the movies from Nikon D7000 to Mac and imported them to FCP X for editing, but I failed because the MOV movies of Nikon D7000 were not compatible with FCP X. I goggled on the Internet and found Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac, which supports Nikon D7000 MOV. I tried it and successfully convert Nikon D7000 MOV recordings to Apple ProRes, which is supported by FCP X.
Here’s a quick guide on how to Convert Nikon D7000 MOV files to Apple ProRes 422 for editing on FCP X.
