Posted by admin | Comments are off for this article

Matroska Multimedia Container (MKV) is an open standard free container format, a file format that can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture or subtitle tracks inside a single file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Matroska file types are .MKV for video (with subtitles and audio), .MKA for audio-only files and .MKS for subtitles only. You may always fail to import MKV to the popular editing programs Final Cut, Avid.

When you load MKV files into FCP X, you’ll be disappointed since Final Cut Pro natively doesn’t support the .MKV format. But, Final Cut Pro X/7/6 can’t support MKV video well, because MKV video codec is not good for editing in FCP on Mac, you may encounter MKV to FCP importing problems, or you can’t edit MKV smoothly in FCP X/7/6 on Mac.
