Issues importing Nikon D5600 footage to FCP X
“Hello, there, I’m having issues importing Nikon D5600 footage to FCP X. FCP X recognizes my camera, but it costs endless time to ingesting. So I’m trying to convert the footage to ProRes before editing. I know it’s not strictly necessary, since FCP X handles Nikon MOV files natively, but I like the idea of transcoding them to ProRes first, so that I won’t wait for a long time for the rendering process. Is anyone out there rewrapping Nikon D5600 footage for FCP X editing? Which program are you using? Please kindly suggest a solution. Thanks.”
