Tips & Tutorials: Editing Blu-ray files with Final Cut Pro

In the following paragraphs, we will talk about how to import Blu-ray files to Final Cut Pro for editing. For those who are stuck in the Blu-ray to FCP X/7/6 incompatible issues, just read on to get rid of the trouble.

Final Cut Pro is one of the best non-linear video editing software. If you're using Final Cut Pro, you must have come across some video incompatibility problems since FCP supported video formats are quite limited and lots of video file types are not supported. After collecting some Blu-rays, you probably would like to make some Blu-ray HD contents into your own film. However, FCP doesn't support Blu-ray video files.



In this case, you need to change the file extentsion from Blu-ray to "a codec" that FCP can read more easily (without rendering basically). The codec is Apple ProRes, which ensures maximum editing quality and efficiency when working with Final Cut Pro. To convert Blu-ray videos to ProRes MOV, the best program I can recommend for converting Blu-ray to FCP X is Brorsoft Blu-ray Ripper for Mac (EI Capitan/macOS Sierra compatible). With it, you can effortlessly rip Blu-ray to ProRes encoded MOV files, which ensure the best results when working with Final Cut Pro X, FCP 7 and FCP 6. Besides FCP, the program can also help you rip Blu-ray/DVD for use in any editing application including Adobe Premiere, Avid, iMovie, Final Cut Express, etc. without quality loss. Now download this program and follow the guide below to complete your task.

Guide: How to Bring Blu-ray Video into Final Cut Pro X

Step 1. Load Blu-ray movies

Insert the Blu-ray disc you want to convert into your BD drive and click "Load Blu-ray" icon to import the Blu-ray movies. Loaded Blu-ray movies can be previewed in the right preview window and you're free to take snapshots of your favorite Blu-ray movies. In addition, you can select the subtitle and audio track as you like.



Step 2: Select output format

When it comes to choosing the output format for these target videos, you directly one choose "Final Cut Pro" preset. For compression, Apple ProRes 422 will do fine for keeping the original Blu-ray files quality the same and creating a Final Cut friendly file format. Apple has made a few variations to the ProRes family - use ProRes 422(Proxy) or (LT) for smaller file sizes(Applied to FCP 7 and above version).



Step 3 (optional): Adjust the video, audio settings

Click "Settings" to fix the frame rate, bitrate, video size, etc to your needs. If you want to edit in Final Cut without having to render the clips while editing, all the frame sizes must be the same as the sequence settings. You can save a lot of render time by making all the clips the same size with this Mac Blu-rayconverter.



Step4: Start Blu-ray to ProRes conversion on Mac

Click the big "Convert" button at the bottom right corner to finish transcoding Blu-ray to ProRes for FCP.

When the conversion is done, you can find the output files by clicking "Open" button on the main interface, then you can transfer the encoded Blu-ray files to your Final Cut Pro, FCP 7 or 6 to edit with ease. Once you've got your video edited, you can export to any codec/container that you'd like for playing and sharing.
