Convert SJCAM SJ4000 H.264 MOV To Final Cut Pro

Summary: This article will talk about the SJCAM SJ4000 H.264 MOV to FCP importing issues and give the best solution. If you get a painful experience to edit SJ4000 H.264 MOV in FCP, get an easy way to fix this issue now.

***********************************

At first glance, the SJCAM SJ4000 Action camera resembles the look and feel similar to a GoPro camera. Many available action cameras on the market have taken a cue in design and form from GoPro cameras and this camera is no different. In fact, many of the GoPro accessories and attachments work with this camera.

The camera has very good picture quality during the day and average picture quality at night. Some owners complain of a bluish tinge in the videos but this does not effect every camera. The SJ4000 records 1080p at 30f/s with an average bit rate of approximately 15,000kpbs.

*Video Format : MOV
*Compression : H.264
*Diagonal Viewing Angle: 170°


***********************************

Well, SJCAM Original SJ4000 recordings are in H.264 codec MOV format. It’s ideal for video recording but not ideal for editing in FCP. We all know that Final Cut Pro can natively deal with MOV files, but the MOV is compressed with Apple ProRes (all versions), H.264 codec is not friendly to FCP, so FCP cannot open the SJCAM SJ4000 MOV files. For those incompatible H.264 MOV files, we’ll need to convert SJ4000 H.264 MOV to FCP compatible Apple ProRes MOV format.

The program Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac (review) will get you out of trouble. It is good at encoding camera shootings in different formats (H.264 MOV, MTS/M2TS, MXF, etc.) to video editing software compatible file types, i.e. ProRes for FCP, AIC for iMoive, MPEG-2 for Premiere and DNxHD for Avid Media Composer, making the experience of importing and editing SJCAM SJ4000 files in Final Cut Pro as fast and seamless as possible.

***********************************

How to edit SJCAM SJ4000 H.264 MOV in FCP?

Step 1: Download and have a quick installation. The trial version will have a watermark on your converted files. Except for that, there are no time limitation, no virus, and no unnecessary bundle apps while downloading. After that, click "Add Video" button to load your SJ4000 H.264 MOV files. You can load several files at once thanks to "Add from folder" button.

Step 2: Click the "Format" bar to get the drop-down menu and you can get "Final Cut Pro". Choose "Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as output format.

Step 3: Click "Settings" button to customize the output video and audio settings by yourself. But if you are not good at it, you’d better use the default parameters, they will ensure you a good balance between file size and image quality basically. You can change the resolution, bit rate, frame rate as you need.

Step 4: Click "Convert" button on the bottom of the screen to start SJ4000 H.264 MOV to ProRes 422 MOV conversion process. The amount of time it takes will vary based on your system’s hardware and the quality settings you selected.


***********************************

Conclusion: When the conversion is done, you can click "Open" button to get the generated video files. Now, you can edit SJCAM SJ4000 H.264 MOV in FCP freely.
