Needed to transcode Fuji X100T 60p MOV to ProRes 422 for FCP X editing
”I’ve just bought a Fujifilm X100T camera, which creates video in H.264/MOV format (up to 1920×1080) but my editing software (Final Cut Pro X) will not touch some 60p files amongst these MOV files. So I needed a converter that could do a find job of conversion, into ProRes 422 format/any format that I could possibly need – now or in the future. Any suggestions on this? Thanks a lot.”
The Fujifilm X100T is capable of recording MOV (H.264, Audio: Linear PCM / stereo sound) video files at 1920 x 1080 pixels / 1280 x 720 pixels (60fps, 50fps, 30fps, 25fps, 24fps) with stereo sound. If you have any issues while editing its H.264 MOV footage in FCP X, you can use Video Converter for Mac to convert formats first.
