Default Edit Canon PowerShot G1X H.264 1080p MOV Files in FCP

sponsored links

Do you have the Canon company's latest flagship advanced compact Camera- PowerShot G1X? It aims predominantly at professional and serious photographers. Canon G1X can shoot DSLR-level images and record Full HD (1080p) movies instantly at 24fps, via a dedicated movie button. Due to its a large, 4:3 aspect, 14.3 Megapixel CMOS sensor, users can experience high quality videos, even in low light conditions, with the shallow depth of field. The bright and compact camera seems the perfect one except the problem when you want to import Canon PowerShot G1 X 1080p MOV to FCP on Mac for editing.

Why the MOV format can not be supported well in FCP? The problem lies in the codec, the same as MOV files from Canon 5D Mk III. H.264, which is highly compressed, is a great codec for playing but when it goes to editing, the ProRes 422 is the best choice, although the files are saved in the same format--- MOV. Now the problem becomes clear. You need to convert PowerShot G1 X H.264 MOV to ProRes for FCP.

If you meet the problems while editing Canon PowerShot G1 X H.264 1080p MOV files in FCP, this artical will guide you to transcode PowerShot G1 X 1080p MOV to ProRes 422(HQ)easily.
Here we get the highly recommended MOV to ProRes Converter for you. It can not only able to transcode PowerShot G1 X recordings to ProRes with HD quality, but also is capable of merging several videos into one file, deinterlacing the original footages, cropping video size, adding special effects and text/image/video watermarks to output videos. Please click the links in this article or google search Brorsoft website to download this smart tool for a free-trial. Then install and run it.

Step 1: Click the "File" or the related label to add the PowerShot G1 X 1080p MOV shootages to the top MOV to ProRes Converter on Mac.
Tips: If you want to combines several 1080p MOV clips as one, please tick “Merge into one” box to merge the files into one single file.

Step 2: Click on the “Format” and move your pointer to “Final Cut Pro” on the dropdown menu. Under the sub list are there a few formats which are all compatible with FCP. Here we recommend the Apple PreRes 422(HQ) if you give the priority to the quality of the converted videos, which means you will definitely be asked for more time and space.
Note: If you want the files to be in smaller size, please firstly make sure that your FCP has updated to 7.0.3 version or above, thus you can click Final Cut Pro>Apple ProRes 422(*mov) option. If your files size is at SD levels, you are advised to choose Final Cut Pro>Apple ProRes 422(Proxy)(*mov), which is recommended for 480i/p and 576i/p shootings as well.

Step 3: Click the “Settings” icon and you will be led to the “Profile Settings”. You’d better set the video frame rate as 24fps or 23.976 fps, video size as 1920*1080 to get the best quality for editing PowerShot G1 X MOV recordings in Final Cut Pro. If you want to have a smaller file size but keep the good quality, you can change the video size to 1440*1080.

Step 4: Click the conversion button to transcode PowerShot G1 X 1080p MOV to ProRes 422(HQ) for editing in FCP.

After the MOV to PreRes conversion, actually the H.264 to ProRes conversion, your videos can be put into and edited in FCP without any problem. The H.264 to ProRes Converter, much better than Log and Transfer, now bridges Canon PowerShot G1 X with FCP.
