SJ4000 and FCP - Prep SJCAM SJ4000 h.264 MOV Footage For Editing In Final Cut Pro 7, FCP X

With this guide, you can smoothly import and edit SJCAM SJ4000 h.264 .mov footage in Final Cut Pro X/7/6 by converting SJ400 FULL HD footages to ProRes MOV.

At first glance, the SJCAM SJ4000 Action camera resembles the look and feel similar to a GoPro camera. Many available action cameras on the market have taken a cue in design and form from GoPro cameras and this camera is no different.

The body design of the SJ4000 is comparable to the popular rectangle box shape with its physical dimensions being about 30x59x41 mm, or about 1x2x1.6 in. It is a CMOS camera that has a field of view of 170° and can record .MOV H.264 video at 1920x1080P(30fps), 1280x720P(60fps), 848×640(60fps),and 648×480 (60fps). I’m really liking that it can record to 1080P. I have some action cameras that can only record to 720, so having the higher recording resolution is definitely a big plus.

With the wonderful SJCAM SJ4000, you may have got a batch of videos in hand, and what you desire to do next is to edit the raw footages from SJCAM SJ400 action videos with Final Cut Pro. The H.264 codec MOV files incompatible with FCP hold you back though.

We all know that Final Cut Pro can natively deal with MOV files, but the MOV is compressed with Apple ProRes(all versions), H.264 codec is not friendly to FCP, so FCP cannot open the SJCAM SJ4000 MOV files. To edit SJCAM SJ4000 MOV in iMovie, we have to convert H.264 MOV to Apple ProRes MOV first.

The program Brorsoft Video Converter for Macwill get you out of trouble, it is good at encoding camera shootings in different formats (H.264 MOV, MTS/M2TS, MXF, etc.) to video editing software compatible file types, i.e. ProRes for FCP, AIC for iMoive, and DNxHD for Avid Media Composer, making the experience of importing and editing SJCAM Action CameraVideo files within Final Cut Pro 7 as fast and seamless as possible. Just download it and follow the guide below to convert SJCAM SJ4000 H.264 MOV files to Apple ProRes for Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X further editing.

Solution to Solve FCP Won't Import SJCAM SJ4000 H.264 MOV Problem
Step 1: Free Download and run the best Mac SJCAM SJ4000 MOV video converter for FCP (X) and drag your SJ4000 mov files to the software.

Step 2: Click format bar to choose “Apple ProRes” codec for DSLR .mov. You are provided with five Apple ProRes options listed as below. You can choose a proper one that fit your needs best according to the main difference of the five ProRes codecs. You’re recommended to choose “Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”, it’s best for FCP editing.

Step 3: Click convert button in the main interface to start transcoding SJ4000 H.264 MOV to FCP Apple ProRes.

Some more helpful features of the app:

1. Settings- click to set video resolution(1920×1080/1440×1080/1280×720/720×480), bitrate(from 1Mbps to 20Mbps), frame rate (24p/30p)

2. Editor (next to “Add” icon)- click to set deinterlace, denoise, mute, volume up, trim, crop, etc.

After converting the SJ4000 MOV video to ProRes format, you can easily Log and Transfer or import/edit SJCAM SJ4000 h.264 mov files in Final Cut Pro 7 or FCP X smoothly on Mac.

PA HC-X920 to FCP 7/X-Edit/Convert Panasonic HC-X920 1080/50p AVCHD to FCP 7/X on Mac OS X

The best way here to edit Panasonic HC-X920 AVCHD files in FCP 7/X smoothly is to find a third party program to transcode Panasonic HC-X920 MTS to Apple ProRes, the most compatible video codec for Final Cut Pro editing on Mac OS X.

We were impressed by how well the X920 handled our complex low light studio test - click through for 1080p version. The HC-X920 provides excellent reproduction of complex textures such as fur, although the detail of some fur-like textures did become a little fuzzy and pixellated when placed under a quickly changing light source. Colour reproduction is similarly excellent and there was very little noise, except in the darkest of environments. Certainly, colour reproduction was much improved over the HC-X900 on indoor footage, with furniture and clothing looking less saturated and gaudy.

The X920, like its predecessor, can shoot in Full HD at 50fps progressive (1080p50) with a variable bit-rate of up to 28Mbits. We didn't see any compression problems using this quality setting, and nor would we expect to. Some DSLRs can shoot at higher quality settings, but the resulting footage can be unwieldy to edit and store.

However, the output 1080 60p or 50p AVCHD movies cannot be supported by some non-linear video editors like the common tool FCP 7/X for Mac users, which causes unsmooth editing without rendering. To get Panasonic HC-X920 footage into Final Cut Pro 7, the best method is to transcode the 1080 60p/50p footage to FCP native support format Apple ProRes 422 with an easy-to-use AVCHD MTS Converter.

Brorsoft Panasonic HC-X920 AVCHD to FCP 7/X Converter is highly recommended for transcoding AVCHD mts/m2ts files. It provides the preset profile Apple ProRes profiles for FCP. And the converted files are lossless. Now, follow the guide on converting Panasonic HC-X920 1080 60p/50p AVCHD to ProRes for FCP 7/X on Mac OS X (Yosemite & Mavericks) step by step.

Step 1: After connecting Panasonic HC-X920 Camera to Mac, run the AVCHD Converter for Mac as the best 1080p AVCHD to FCP Converter for Mac. Click the “Add” button to load the 1080p .mts videos from Panasonic HC-X920 camera through the CAM_SD --> PRIVATE --> AVCHD --> BDMV --> STREAM.

Step 2: Click Format box and you will get five Apple ProRes options in Final Cut Pro. If you attach great importance to quality, “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” will be your favorite options.

Step 3: Adjust video and audio parameters in Profile Settings, where you can get by clicking Settings on the main interface. For FCP users, 1920*1080 as video size, 30fps(25fps for original 50p video) as frame rate and pcm-s16le as audio codec are the most suitable settings.

Step 4: Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Mac Panasonic HC-X920 MTS converter will start converting HC-X920 MTS to ProRes 422 for FCP 7 on Mac OS X immediately.

After the MTS to ProRes conversion is 100% completed, you can easily import Panasonic HC-X920 recordings in Final Cut Pro 7 without any rendering.
