Canon Rebel T7i and Final Cut Pro X
“Hello everyone, recently I purchased a Canon EOS Rebel T7i camera. I’d like to edit the footage in Final Cut Pro X. My Macbook pro (early 2011) is able to recognize it when I open up Final Cut Pro X, but the process is not stable and reliable. After a lot of attempts, I decided to look for a workaround to go through this. I would really appreciate some feedback from anyone who knows if I’m doing something wrong or if there is another way I should set up the camera with the computer. Any suggestions? Thanks.”

If you continue to have problems, try to convert Rebel T7i video to a format that is best suitable for FCP X first, such as Apple ProRes 422, FCP X’s favorite editing codec, which FCP X will recognize and handle well. Here’s how.
