How to Make JVC 4K compatible with Final Cut Pro X or FCP 7/6?
“Hi, there, I’m using Final Cut Pro X to edit 4K MOV files copied from a JVC camera. My client delivered these files to me via an external hard drive. Unfortunately, FCP X will not directly import these JVC 4K .MOV files. When I do a file open, MOV files are not displayed as valid input files. I don’t frequently deal with .MOV files. Can anyone advise a solution? Thanks!”
The JVC 4KCAM product line with new cameras GY-HM200 , GY-HM170, GY-LS300 that make ultra-high definition 4K economical for cinematographers, webcasters and broadcasters, corporate and live event production teams and independent filmmakers. But, after you recording some 4K videos, things would be a little more complicated when you work with the JVC 4K files in Final Cut Pro.
Actually, the JVC 4K video was restricted to edit in Final Cut Pro. Learn from Apple official site, we know that Final Cut Pro(FCP X 10.1.) has been updated for the next-generation architecture in the new Mac Pro, providing unprecedented performance when editing and monitoring 4K video. Final Cut Pro X natively supports 4K ProRes, Sony XAVC and REDCODE RAW. However, the old version FCP X or Final Cut Pro 6/7 like many editors use 1080p as primary delivery format and will continue to do so for a long time.
What’s more, due to the format limit, we can’t edit all kinds of JVC 4K video files like 4K MP4, 4K MOV in FCP 6/7/X flawlessly. How to solve the issues? As mentioned above, we need to encode JVC 4K to FCP compatible video and even downscale JVC 4K video to 1080p if necessary. What you need is a UFUWare HD Converter for Mac, which can perfectly works as a great JVC 4K video converter application.
