« on: April 10, 2012, 04:05:10 AM »

"Does anyone know of a plugin for Final Cut Pro or a stand alone editing application (Mac based) for mp4 - h.264 files? It seems that the standard and most recommended method for working with mp4 HD camera footage (Flip or other consumer HD-camera files) in Final Cut is converting the lossy format to Apple Pro-Res 422 or DVCProHD or other lossless codecs for stable performance and editing." from http://answers.oreilly.com

Do you also encounter such kinds of problems? Can't edit the handy .mp4 into FCP? Generally speaking, the most .mp4 can be accepted by Final Cut Pro like the Sony .mp4, .mp4 downloaded from YouTube, iTunes MP4 files, etc. However, there are still some .mp4 can't be recognized by Final Cut Pro, for MP4 is the container format and can be of different codecs. In the case, convert those .mp4 into Final Cut Pro supported codec like MOV, would be an easy way out. Doremisoft MP4 to FCP Converter can do the conversion.

2. MP4 from handy media player, portable devices or files download from YouTube, etc
3. Plus, it can also make you to edit MP4 into FCE or MP4 in iMovie.
