How to Import and Convert MOV to Final Cut Pro

Final Cut Pro (FCP) is an Apple-based software program that supports various formats for editing. MOV is the native Apple format, making it QuickTime Player’s primary supported file and the standard for Final Cut editing. MOV supports many compression types, which includes MPEG or H.264 compression. However, you may come across problems when trying to import MOV to Final Cut Pro. This could happen because of the different codec in a number of MOV files as Final Cut Pro might not support all of these codecs.

Another reason is that you might be using an HD camcorder and would like to edit the files in Final Cut Pro. For this, you have to convert the file to a format that is supported like QuickTime. Although all the QuickTime movies utilize the MOV file extension, this format supports many different video codecs. This means that you have to ensure that your MOV media is compatible with FCP by encoding the files with DV video codec.

For the above reason, you have to do some conversion to get rid of the format incompatibility issues. In any case, you will need a smart program that allows you to convert MOV to FCP directly without having to worry about codec compatibility.
