Nikon D3300 1080P MOV to ProRes 422 for FCP 6/7/X

Posted by admin | Comments are off for this article

“I shot a video project on a Nikon D3300 (1280 x 720 @ 60p) and I’m editing it in Final Cut Pro 6. I have issues to let FCP touch my Nikon MOV video. I heard that I should convert D3300 MOV to ProRes 422 – the best codec for editing within FCP. I have been searching for some way of transcoding my Nikon digital movies to ProRes 422, but haven’t figured out a workable solution. Please help.”
