Cannot Open Canon 1D X Mark II videos in FCP X/7/6?

The EOS-1D X Mark II is Canon’s newest flagship DSLR aimed at pro-level photographers. A quick glance reveals the camera’s 1D-series heritage, but under the hood there are some exciting upgrades going on. The 1D X II is built around a new 20.2MP full-frame CMOS sensor, now with Canon’s Dual Pixel autofocus system, includes an expanded 61-point autofocus system with 24% more coverage and a 360,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor, and is one of the first Canon DSLRs (other than the somewhat niche 1D C) that captures 4K video.

However, the problem that filmmaker considered is that how to make these outstanding 4K videos from Canon EOS-1D X Mark II into Final Cut Pro for editing smoothly. Now this article will offer you tips and tricks for importing Canon EOS-1D X Mark II 4K MOV and MP4 to FCP X/7/6.

Actually, the 4K MOV and MP4 video were restricted to edit in Final Cut Pro. Only the latest version FCP can natively support 4K video like Canon's MOV or MP4 footage. But, due to the format limit, we can't play Canon EOS-1D X Mark II footage (MPEG4 AVC/H.264; Audio: Linear PCM) in the editing software smoothly, and we spend long time on rendering videos. How to solve the issues? As mentioned above, we need to encode 4K to FCP compatible video. What you need is a Canon Video Converter application.

Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac is the ideal Canon 4K file converter for you, which can take your high quality Canon EOS-1D X Mark II 4K files and convert them into a supported format like Apple ProRes MOV for editing in Final Cut Pro any version(FCP X/7/6).

This 4K video converter is also available to customize the output resolutions to any size like 1080p, 2K, 4K as the users want for uploading to Youtube/Vimeo/Facebook etc. (read review)

How to Convert Canon 1D X Mark II videos to FCP X/7/6 supported Apple ProRes?

Step 1. Click "Add video" button to add your Canon 1D X Mark II video files to the program. Or directly drag the video you want to convert to the left item bar.

Step 2. Go to "Format" bar and choose "Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)" as output format for Final Cut Pro X/7/6.

Tips: The default settings may not satisfy you, and you can click the "Settings" button to change the settings by yourself including video resolution, bit rate, audio sample rate, audio channel etc. for full screen playback smoothly. Or keep no changes, which is also a good choice.

Step 3. Click the "Convert" button on the main interface and the software will start to convert Canon 1D X Mark II to FCP friendly video formats immediately. When the conversion finishes, click "Open" to find the converted video files. Then you can effortless transfer the video files to FCP X or FCP 6/7 for easily editing.

Note: If you are also a FCP X user, before you try to do the conversion, don't forget to make sure that you have installed the Apple ProRes Codec manually since the FCP X asks users to install it by themselves.
