Convert Nikon D3200 MOV to FCP X/FCP 7 ProRes Codec for Editing

The Nikon D3200 is one of Nikon’s best DSLR ever. Besides taking best quality photos, it also can shoot footage in MOV container format.  And it feaures

While, it’s a bit hard to import Nikon D3200 MOV into FCP X or FCP 7. You may encounter many problems: can’t be recognized, import slowly, couldn’t edit smoothly… So, is there any practical way to edit Nikon D3200 footage in Final Cut Pro X/7 without any issue?

Of course, there is. The reason that you can’t edit Nikon files in FCP X or FCP 7 is simple: the Nikon DSLR uses the sophisticated H.264 compression method for recording videos to the camera’s memory card. But the H.264 is not natively supported by Final Cut Pro. A quick workaround to get FCP X/7 ingest Nikon D3200 MOV files is to convert Nikon D3200 H.264 .mov to ProRes with a Nikon D3200 MOV converter. UFUWare HD Converter for Mac is such a program that available for your choice.
