The EOS Rebel T6 digital camera, which is known as the EOS 1300D in most regions, is a perfect option for those looking to step up from a compact digital camera or make the leap in picture quality from a smartphone.
Apart from photography capability, this entry-level DSLR also features Full HD video mode for high quality, easy-to-use video capture. For those who are having issues editing Rebel T6/EOS 1300D video files in FCP X, we would recommend converting them to a format that is well compatible with Final Cut Pro X first, such as Apple ProRes codec, FCP X’s favorite editing format, which FCP X will recognize and handle well. Here’s a simple tutorial guiding you through the process of converting Rebel T6/EOS 1300D video to ProRes for FCP X editing.
How to encode Rebel T6/EOS 1300D footage for FCP X editing?
Follow these steps:
Step 1: Run HD Video Converter for Mac as a professional Rebel T6/EOS 1300D Video to FCP X Converter. When its main interface comes up, click ‘Add File’ to load source video to it.
Step 2: Select ‘Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)’ as output format for opening with FCP X
From the Profile menu, move to ‘Final Cut Pro’ catalogue, and select ‘Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)’ as target format. Apple ProRes is the best suited editing codec for FCP X and its former version FCP 6 and 7. When loading them into FCP (X), you needn’t wait for a long time for rendering.
Important: If you’ve loaded a number of video clips to do batch conversion, please do remember ticking off ‘Apply to All’ option before you start.
Step 3: Adjust video and audio settings (for advanced users)
If necessary, you can click ‘Settings’ button and go to ‘Profiles Settings’ panel to modify video and audio settings like video encoder, resolution, video bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, audio encoder, sample rate, audio bit rate, and audio channels. 3D settings are also available.
Step 4: Click ‘Convert’ to start Rebel T6/EOS 1300D to ProRes MOV conversion.
Step 5: Click ‘Open Folder’ to get generated ProRes 422 QuickTime files for transferring and editing in Final Cut Pro X with optimum performance.
